    • You should have a strong design eye and have worked with compliance and accessibility requirements. In addition, you have worked with tools like Babel and Webpack.
    • You should also have experience with testing. At Side, we use PhpUnit and Jest for unit tests and Cypress for End to End tests. You should have experience writing substantial tests with testing frameworks.
    • On top of being a great frontend engineer, you have experience mentoring junior engineers who need help and guidance.
