Front-End Software Engineer: React

Are you a Front End Engineer who’s interested in working with the latest JavaScript technologies?  If diving into new tech such as Clojure and Clojurescript and heavily working with React sounds interesting, then check this out!

What is the job?

Although we are a multinational company, this development team is small yet crucial to our B2B platform, which was recently released. Our platform services news to our customers, which include journalists, broadcasters, publishers, and news organizations. These services allow our customers to utilize our content or create and distribute their own content.

As a member of this division, you will develop critical new features for the platform. On a day to day basis, you will participate in stand-ups- we’re currently on a three week release cycle. You’ll work on the web interface, and you’ll have the opportunity to work on back-end services after you become proficient in Clojure and ClojureScript. Our platform is deployed to cloud services, so you’ll also have an opportunity to familiarize yourself with AWS.

Our tech stack is:

  • HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, React, and JQuery on the front end
  • Clojure and ClojureScript (You will work with these from day one!)

  • Back End: Java

  • Docker

  • Amazon Web Services

  • You are a Front End Engineer with at least 4 years of experience with solid firms under your belt.

  • You’re an expert in front end technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript.
