Senior Frontend Developer Role

  • Write code and make architectural decisions for The Dyrt’s Ember.js web frontend
  • Lead a team of 2-5 developers working to improve and maintain our frontend products
  • Lend perspective to our product design process, vetting tickets and helping to ensure features are well defined for your team to succeed

Required skills and experience:

  • Fluent in modern JavaScript/ES2017 development practices and frontend frameworks (or significant prior experience in at least two other languages)
  • Strong skills developing interactive, responsive interfaces for the web
  • Experience debugging and resolving issues in production
  • An interest in technical leadership, and in building a work environment where everyone on the team can thrive

  • An interest in learning and exploring new languages, tools, and frameworks
