  • Optimizing components for maximum performance across a vast array of web-capable devices and browsers
  • Building reusable components and front-end libraries for future use
  • Translating designs and wireframes into high-quality code
  • Work and collaborate with the rest of the engineering team & work with product and marketing teams to crystallize product requirements

Qualifications

  • Preferably a graduate of a 4-year college degree in Computer Science or a related field
  • A minimum of 3+ years of previous work experience
  • Experience with the Shopify API, or robust similar SAAS experience is a plus.
  • Proficient understanding of client-side scripting and JavaScript frameworks, including ES5 vanilla Javascript
  • Good understanding of React and Next.js framework.
  • Proficient understanding of cross-browser compatibility issues and ways to work around them
  • Ability to design and integrate RESTful APIs with Node.js and GoLang.
