Requirements

    • 3+ years as a web developer using MVC frameworks like Django, Rails, or equivalent technology.
    • Deep knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript best practices and familiar with frameworks like Bootstrap or Foundation.
    • Production experience with ECMAScript 6 (ES6) and have used reactive frameworks such as Vue, React, or Angular.
    • You are knowledgeable on best practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations.
    • Experience maintaining an existing code base while we transition to modern frameworks is a major plus.
