    Job Summary:
    As a Senior Front End Engineer you will work with some of today’s top brands and take ownership for the design, development, and implementation of new applications that turn massive real-time datasets into something beautiful and intuitive. Ranging from large scale e-commerce frontends to slick data-driven visualizations, you’ll code some of the most complex stories, serve as a constant advocate for code quality and user experience, conduct pull request reviews, mentor junior developers, and set up front-end tooling and continuous integration.
    Key Responsibilities:

    React expertise with experience in isomorphic design patterns, REST, and atomic design systems
    Code the most complex pieces of the application. Whether it’s a dynamic visualization, a tricky third-party integration, or a crazy animation sequence – you’re up for the challenge and you’ll take pride in the finished product.
    Test your code and help ensure that the right code is being tested across your project. You also help make sure that integration tests are running, and that everyone on the team tests before they push code (either manually or as part of a pre-commit hook).
    Model the behavior and practices that you want to see in the organization. Want to follow TDD? Do it, and demonstrate the results to your team and clients. Itching to adopt a new tool or framework? Try it out and show the value.
    Estimate or point your own work, and be able to sanity check estimations from more junior developers to make sure that they’re setting themselves up for success.
    Share your learnings and experiences with your team, your local community, and us globally through Lunch and Learns, knowledge sharing webinars, and blog posts.
    Required Skills and Experience:

    Excellent knowledge of hand-coded HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and the DOM
    Knowledge of JavaScript packages, package managers, bundlers, and their use in building complex interactive experiences
    Familiarity with concepts related to data flow and component driven architectures (with practical experience based on React & Redux)
    Experience using CSS grids and building responsive websites with scalability in mind
    Experience leading small teams and mentoring junior developers
    Understanding of SEO and accessibility issues and how they relate to development
    Awareness of TCP/IP networking considerations, ability to optimize applications for a variety of device capabilities and network conditions
    Thorough understanding of browser rendering, and ability to fine-tune an experience
    Ability to cut necessary visual assets from Photoshop and/or Sketch files, and optimize them appropriately
    Experience working with large branded websites, content management systems, E-commerce platforms, and backend frameworks (Java, .NET)
