Your job will be to implement and maintain new features for a single-page web app.
We are looking for someone with 1-2 years of professional experience on a dev team. Emphasis on familiarity with React.
Technical degree not required. We believe that strong developers can come from anywhere.
We are a small team, so we are ideally looking for someone who can learn quickly, can identify, find and fill organizational gaps, has an interest in taking ownership over some part of the codebase, and strikes a balance between big picture thinking and attention to detail. Also, since we are a small team, you'll have an opportunity to pivot and experiment and better define your own role as the company grows. If your interest is in DevOps, we've got DevOps projects. If your interest is in backend development, we've got that too.
Technical skill requirements:
Exposure to React and Redux with a good grasp of the unidirectional data flow model
Strong fundamental HTML/CSS knowledge
Experience with Git or some other distributed version control system
Bonus points for:
Experience with Mapbox, GeoJSON, web development with a geospatial component and/or other map-related technologies
A good grasp of ES6 and/or Immutable.js with an eye towards functional programming principles
Familiarity with Django Rest Framework
Familiarity with Agile Development
