Senior Front End Developer

Dear Future Teammate,

In a nutshell we build eCommerce on Shopify Plus, static, advertising/marketing, and corporate CMS driven sites for organizations ranging from small business’ to government entities.

We build with Javascript (ES6/Vanilla, React, Vue in the past), HTML, CSS and open to providing other CMS and/or frameworks. Right now, beginning to get into headless. Currently exploring Gatsby on that front. That’s where you come in.

We’re looking for someone who can work with us full time, 40 hours per week. Typically 9-5 but we do offer flex hours and work from home options. A senior lead/role will have 3+ weeks paid vacation, budget for courses, conferences, books etc.

You will drive the “dev bus” as we like to call it. We need someone to help navigate the many front end stacks, build an amazing team around themselves for the long haul. Other things may include contributions to estimating development projects, consulting on designs, code reviews, refining development methodologies, creating documentation and above all else contribute to developing amazing sites.

The following is not an all or nothing list. If you meet many but not all points, please still reach out!

You spend something like 25% of your entire life at work so one of our goals here is to make this place awesome. Help us do it.
