    • Communicate and document architectural designs and requirements
    • Invent patterns and reusable components that our team can assemble to build things

What we're looking for

    • You have 3+ years of experience with relevant web technologies (React, JavaScript, CSS)
    • You have experience building reusable web components, modern JavaScript frameworks, and the knowledge of when to use them
    • You have strong communication skills and the ability to work well cross-functionally
    • You have built a complex, highly interactive frontend UI for user facing web applications
    • You have strong product and design sensibilities and enjoy perfecting the details that matter
    • BONUS: You have experience with Next.js, a CS degree, and experience with platform ecosystems
