Overview

We are looking for a highly collaborative Remote Software Development Engineer - React who is motivated and interested in building applications with React.js and familiar with its ecosystem (Redux, GraphQL, Jest, Next.js, etc.). In this role, you will create and implement user interface components following well-known React.js workflows as well as the backend APIs that support them. You will have the opportunity to combine the art of design with the art of programming. You will work with the UI/UX designer(s) and bridge the gap between graphical design and technical implementation, taking an active role on both sides and defining how the application looks as well as how it works. You'll work independently on deliverables for an internal customer management application, but also participate in a very collaborative environment with teammates from various backgrounds coming together to solve challenging problems as a team. Therefore, a commitment to collaborative problem solving, sophisticated design, and quality product is important.
