You build JavaScript code with software engineering best practices and have effectively scaled these practices to the size of an engineering team. You are obsessed about the quality and usability of your applications, you see writing automated acceptance tests as an inseparable part of feature development. You follow the technology trends within front end software development, know of the framework of the month and the new shiny tool delivering salvation but have learned to write code that stands the test of time. You have used various front end code and asset transpilers, compilers and packagers, you know and have used in the past some of these tools and languages: ES6, TypeScript, Sass, Less, Yarn, fastlane.

  • The example (mobile) frontend engineer of that team
  • Building React Native mobile apps
  • Promoting and sharing knowledge around frontend development, specifically on mobile platforms

It would be a great addition if you…

  • Have already published apps to the Google Play Store and Apple App Store before, so you know exactly what those picky review processes will accept and reject in apps
  • Worked with AWS tools like the Mobile SDK, or specifically AWS Cognito
  • Got tired of REST, and played around with GraphQL
