Front End Developer

The Role:
Front End Developers at Code and Theory are actively involved throughout the project lifecycle, often times starting with rapid prototypes early in the design phase. Our Front End Engineers work very closely with the design team, not only to identify gaps and vet the designs for technical feasibility, but also to help inform the experience design through a technical lens. They are also expected to bootstrap a project from scratch, installing required modules/dependencies, creating necessary build processes, and standing up test environments.

  • 3+ years of front-end focused web development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) and responsive, ideally mobile-first, development
  • 1-2 years of mobile web development using React Native, with a strong understanding of mobile browser capabilities
  • Define and enforce organizational coding standards, perform code reviews
  • Assist in bootstrapping projects across multiple teams
  • Ongoing research of new technologies, frameworks, and best practices
  • Extensive experience with a CSS pre-processor (Sass), cross-browser compatibility, back-end integration and server-side templating, client-side templating (Mustache.js, Handlebars.js)
  • Experience with various grid systems (eg. Bourbon Neat, Bootstrap), task runners (eg. Gulp), Node.js (Express), AMP and PWA. 
  • Extensive experience with client-side JavaScript MVC frameworks (e.g. React.js, AngularJS, Vue.js)
  • In-depth knowledge of JavaScript and CSS animation techniques and use of vector graphics
  • Demonstrated knowledge of client-side performance analysis and optimization techniques
  • Solid OOP experience, preferably with JavaScript
