  • Drive the team in maintenance, implementation and improvement of the core front-end components for everything from UI, event handling and messaging
  • Work with teams to identify software in their products that can be componentized for company-wide reuse
  • Build efficient, well-tested User Interface components in React and Redux
  • Identify bottlenecks to improve performance

What skills you will use:

  • The ability to lead by influence rather than by directing
  • A plus if you have experience in designing and developing for accessibility and internationalization
  • A proven ability to deliver production-quality solutions
  • 8+ years of development experience with modern CSS and JavaScript frameworks.
  • 3+ years of development experience with React
  • Experience with Storybook or similar UI component explorer is a strong plus
  • Familiar with and encourages OWASP practices
  • Mobile experience (Android, iOS, Xamarin) a plus
  • Ability to participate in code reviews, design reviews, and over-the-shoulder debugging.
  • Experience working with modern front-end build tools, testing frameworks and practices (e.g. Node, NPM, Yarn, WebPack)
  • The ability to understand, debug and improve asynchronous code
