Description:

  • Designing and implementing front-end JavaScript that powers our client's web applications, using libraries such as React and jQuery, taking into account functional requirements as well as non-functional requirements such as scalability, robustness, monitoring, supportability, and testability.
  • Collaborating with teammates throughout the product development organization including product owners, UI/UX designers, QA analysts, technical writers, and customer champions.
  • Verifying the correctness of your implementations by writing automated tests.
  • Documenting code and design, and reviewing others’ work products.
  • Synthesizing requirements into cohesive designs, identifying gaps and contradictions.
  • Leading agile story authoring, sizing, and demo sessions for product features.
  • Leading team design discussions and code reviews, asking questions, contributing and accepting feedback.
  • Mentoring and guiding more junior staff.
  • Contributing to process improvement efforts within engineering.
  • Continuously learning about technology and software development, and sharing knowledge with the team.

Skills and Requirements:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or a related field, or equivalent experience.
  • 5 to 8 years’ professional software development experience, or can convincingly demonstrate this level of knowledge and skill.
  • Experience with front-end development for enterprise-class, multi-tier systems and the design patterns upon which they are built.
  • Experience in JavaScript/ECMAScript 2015 and the primary libraries of the team: React and jQuery. Some exposure to angular.js is also useful.
  • Experience working with RESTful web APIs.
  • Experience taking ownership of deliverables as part of a team.
  • Familiarity with continuous integration and deployment concepts.
  • Familiarity with working in an agile, collaborative environment, both offering and asking for help when it's needed.
  • Comfortable working with non-technical staff.
