JavaScript Developer

Do you want to build best-of-class web applications for mobile and desktop web? Do you want to work with talented developers using cutting-edge tech like React and the latest goodies available only in ES2017? Do you have strong opinions (weakly held) about whether strong types are really what JavaScript needs? 

Maybe you think JavaScript gets a bad rap because most developers don’t understand prototypal inheritance. Or maybe you can fully appreciate both sides of the classic "Mixing JS and CSS" flame war (even if you're pretty certain you know the right answer).

If you've answered "yes" to a few of the above questions, we'd like to talk to you.

Successful applicants:

  • Have exceptional front-end web skills
  • Have friendly personalities and can collaborate with designers, developers, and our clients
  • Are just as (or more) likely to look for their answers in framework source code than on SO (and also understand that official documentation should almost always be the first stop)

Must haves:

  • Knowledge of JS, CSS, and HTML inside and out
  • Experience building something cool using React, Backbone, or some other client-side MV* framework
  • Knowledge of SASS, Less, or another CSS preprocessor 

Bonus points:

  • You appreciate being called a hacker
  • You get really jazzed about frontend tooling but don't feel beholden to any one stack

*Along with your resume submission, please include your GitHub account if you have one, as well as any relevant application or code samples.
