Senior Javascript Engineer — React/TypeScript

Looking for the next big move in your career? We’re a fully remote (since before covid!) international digital studio (growing 2x yearly, 30+ people) looking to hire a React/TypeScript Engineer. Sounds maybe interesting? Read on…

🥱 The TL:DR;

We’re looking for a Senior Javascript Engineer focused on React and Typescript. As a React developer on our team you’ll join 20+ other developers working on a close-knit team to deliver ambitious software projects to clients around the world. You’ll have exciting projects to work on: from a European banking product, to an exciting new in-house approach to e-commerce management. You do so working alongside your team of designs, QA and internal project managers in weekly sprints. This is a fully-remote, permanent, full-time position.

👉 This is for you if…

1. You’re looking for a remote, long-term position
2. You have real world experience (3/4 years) in React development at production-level;
3. Basic experience across the Javascript stack (in ES6);
4. You have experience with Sass, Less and/or CSS Modules, WebPack;
5. Strong experience with Typescript — you don’t “any” your way out of it 🙂 
5. You’ve got great technical communication skills: you can articulate your thoughts clearly;
6. Have developed large-scale React and Typescript projects before;
7. Have a desire to develop new bold ideas, while constantly following best design and coding practices;
8. You have an understanding of logic, algorithms and the basics of engineering (regardless of your background);
9. You need to be curious;

Note: You’ll see we never specify stuff like “Be a team player” or “Be dedicated” and stuff like that. That is a base requirement for any position these days, but just know we also like these things people usually ask for:  motivated, focused, hard-worker that likes to grow and learn more, that works well with others and has a positive attitude 😎

💪 This is even better if…

1. You’re able to work without micro-management and constant guidance, but rather can understand the high-level needs and the tasks needed and take it from there.
2. Experience in NodeJS
3. Experience in ReactNative
4. You have a natural interest for React and all things programming/tech — you don’t mind learning, you actually love learning.
5. You’re able to stop, think for yourself and act.

🤓 Being an engineer at ColorElephant

We’re not Google or Facebook. We know that. But we provide ambitious, eager-to-learn engineers with unique opportunities to work on international, large-scale needle-moving projects having insane levels of ownership. You can be more or less seasoned, and you can either be working directly with the client — having contact with successful entrepreneurs and ambitious individuals — or be part of an internal team delivering the project. Regardless, we can promise one thing: you won’t be freaking adjusting pixels. You’ll have ownership (and with that, responsibility) to develop entire functionalities and products. You’ll be able to grow and learn, you’ll be given trust and expected to run with it. You’ll face challenges and f*ck up, and we’ll clean it together and learn. You’ll have a close-knit team without politics, “power wars” and bullshit. Here’s what matters for us: delivery (ship sh*t!) with quality, self-improvement and support of others. If you do that, you’ll have tons of opportunities here — to grow, to learn, to take additional responsibility, to be exposed to unique international projects and people.

👩🏻‍💻 What you’ll do

You’ll be responsible to work either directly with clients or with internal teams delivering the frontend of real-world applications.

— Produce “clean” and well-structured code, with detailed specifications. This means that your code is commented, well structure, readable and comes with documentation;
— Implementing ‘pixel perfect’ design as delivered by our designers that works across different browsers, on mobile and desktop, according to specifications provided;
— Produce smooth interfaces, full with animations and transitions;
— Work with local storage, async data transmissions and more;
— Develop complex functionality, leveraging latest technology, including visualisation libraries or chart libraries to manage financial/app data at scale.
— Connect frontend interfaces with REST APIs, GraphQL to create dynamic applications;
— Create code that has great test coverage to avoid unnecessary issues in the future;
— Collaborate with the team in all phases of the development lifecycle, including the strategy and the architecture of the systems you will eventually build;
— Troubleshoot, test and maintain the core product software and databases to ensure strong optimization and functionality;
— Stay informed about industry best practices;
— Provide on-time delivery of projects;
— Follow Agile and SCRUM methodologies (where appropriate) to deliver projects;
— Communicate with others, including project managers, on struggles and progress of each of the projects;

🤑 What is in for you?

– An unique challenge that allows you to work on great digital products, having an impact on its development;

– Competitive salary proposal for position and location;
– Work from anywhere with our remote policy. We know sometimes the best work is done in the beach (or mountain, or… ) 🙂
– Bonuses for performance indicators we’d mutually agree;
– Be part of our profit-sharing program and take a slice of ColorElephant’s collective success;
