We are growing and looking for a Front End Developer to join our team!
This frontend developer (FD) will be situated primarily alongside a frontend architect (FA), with limited but expected direct interactions with clients’ point of contacts (POCs).
The FD will be following the lead of the FA in:
- Prioritizing between coexisting tasks;
- Deciding on the appropriate approach for projects;
- Executing on specific designs, when necessary.
The FD will be expected to interact with POCs in:
- Reporting on the current status of the project areas the FD is working on;
- Fielding questions on project areas the FD is tasked with;
- Collecting requirements in specific areas, which will be assigned by the FA.
The FD will need to work independently in:
- Ascertaining all possible use-cases and operational scenarios for a given requirement;
- Filling in any gaps in knowledge for a given technical stack and its relevant best practices;
- Staying vigilant against potential risks, pitfalls, and complications in project execution and scheduling, and escalating them to the FA in a time-appropriate manner.
Abilities and Skills:
The FD must exhibit the following in coding without fail:
Accuracy. All work products must address their stated task objectives squarely, without uncalculated nor unreported risks. This is especially important when the FD is inserted into an existing project or team: Fully understanding the existing structure before changing anything is of utmost importance;
Precision. All work products must be “pixel-perfect”, whether it is literal pixel alignments, or hexadecimal color codes, or basic code indentations. Any manifestations of “close enough” must be calculated and defendable;
Conciseness. All work products must be “minimalistic”: Easily readable, but not verbose. Whether it is file structure, code structure, or HTML structure, any “excess” must be calculated and defendable; and
Consistency. All work products must be absolutely internally consistent. Any deviations must be calculated and defendable. This means, for example:
If single quote is chosen over double quote, single quotes must be used everywhere;
If components should group their import statements in a certain way, all components must use the exact same grouping, ordering, and spacing;
If font sizes should use “px” instead of “em”, there should not be even one incident of “em” anywhere in the entire project.
The FD needs to be proficient in:
React, including proper and efficient usage of Hooks;
CSS, including derivatives such as JSX and compilers such as LESS and SASS, as well as the ability to animate simple transitions;
HTML, more specifically the use of React-based derivative frameworks such as Material UI; and
Responsive designs, more specifically how a full desktop design should translate into a mobile design. While responsive designs will likely be provided, inferences on when to reuse and when to duplicate a component will naturally need to be made. The FA will be available to resolve conflicting considerations, but not for hand holding.
The FD needs to have a basic understanding in:
Color theory. For example, do not use colors that might not match with each other. If the design calls for it, confirm the choice with the FA;
Accessibility for the disabled and impaired. For example, do not use font sizes lower than 12px. If the design calls for it, confirm the choice with the FA; and
Runtime efficiency. For example, while it is unnecessary to worry about the efficiency of algorithms in general, do not use something that operates at O(n2) on a dataset that can become large. If the design calls for it, confirm the choice with the FA.
We are doers, tinkerers, and thinkers. We take on your projects and ideas - and turn them into process and operations reality to allow you to focus on scale.
We become an extension of your team. Get the extra hands, the ideas and process capabilities in order to truly scale, while focusing on your core competencies.
