What We're Looking For...

  • Experience building responsive interfaces and browser optimisation
  • A strong eye for UI/UX design

  • Have accomplished something that impresses us - in a previous job, team, open source, etc.
  • Take ownership of our code base - when you work on code you leave it in better shape than you found it

The Role...

  • You’ll join our front-end team and build reusable and maintainable components and styles that our team can use on different frameworks (e.g., Rails, Ember, React, CSS).
  • You’ll work across all product teams to ensure that design and user experience is unified across our applications. You'll work in two-week iterations and be part of iteration planning and retros.
  • You’ll be expected to understand and collaborate with designers and product teams so you can make well-informed software decisions. Armed with this knowledge you’ll be trusted to act autonomously and influence process/workflows, product direction, and technology choices.
  • You’ll be writing high quality and maintainable code. You’ll also be expected to pair with & coach teammates, review PRs, help others with technical questions & share your own learnings, and be a part of growing the team.
