Junior Frontend Developers are actively involved throughout the project lifecycle. Junior developers will ultimately be writing production-ready code, which will be integrated with the backend/APIs and refined via the QA process. A Junior Frontend Developer will remain engaged through the launch to ensure that everything functions and performs at the highest level.

 

Our Junior Front-end Developers must work very closely with the design team, not only to identify gaps and vet the designs for feasibility, but also to help inform the experience design through a technical lens. Our conviction is that developers and designers need to work hand-in-hand to find solutions to a wide range of design and strategic challenges.

 

In your first few months, you can expect to: 

  • Get on boarded onto a project for a major brand, that involves high-volume data transfers 
  • Participate in workshops to determine the best way to develop new features
  • Start implementing these features with the support of your Technical Director, other Frontend and Backend developers, and DevOps engineers 

 

In your first year, you will: 

  • Work across different projects, leveraging various frontend techniques
  • Develop an expertise in delivering best-in-class experiences with advanced features

 

To succeed in this role, you should have:

  • Required:
    • 3+ years of front-end focused web development
    • Extensive experience with a CSS pre-processor (e.g. Sass)
    • Extensive experience with cross-browser compatibility
    • Experience with source control (e.g. Git)
    • Proficient with Sketch, InVision, Zeplin, and ability to translate layered comps into code
    • Solid OOP experience
    • Experience with a task runner 

 

  • Nice to have:
    • In-depth knowledge of JavaScript and CSS animation techniques
    • Experience with decoupled architectures, as well as back-end integration and server-side templating
    • Experience with at least one frontend framework (React.js, Angular.js, etc.) 
    • Demonstrated knowledge of client-side performance analysis and optimization techniques
    • Experience with a mobile app development framework such as React Native
