You will contribute to the development, design, and enhancement of our core web applications (SaaS development), primarily using React. You will play a pivotal role in crafting user-friendly, efficient, and scalable frontend solutions working on a small and highly skilled team focused on the development of a very efficient, user-friendly – and lovable product.

The contract is for 6-months with an extension to full-time upon SaaS tool completion and launch.

Key Responsibilities:

  1. Development & Implementation

· Design, develop, and maintain efficient and reusable frontend components using React.

· Ensure code quality by writing clean, well-documented, and testable code using tools like Jest.

· Translate UI/UX designs into high-quality code that will produce visual elements of the application.

  1. Collaboration

· Collaborate with backend developers to integrate frontend components with server-side logic, interfacing through REST APIs.

  1. Optimization & Maintenance

· Identify and troubleshoot frontend performance bottlenecks and bugs.

· Regularly update application dependencies to keep abreast with security patches and new features.

Preferred Qualifications:

· Bachelor's degree in a related STEM field or commensurate work experience as a frontend developer.

· 3+ years of proven experience as a frontend developer, preferably working with React.

· Proven experience with TypeScript is a plus, but not a must-have.

· Strong understanding of the React ecosystem, hooks, state management, and component lifecycle.

· Strong proficiency in JavaScript/TypeScript and familiarity with common libraries and tools.

· Experience working with RESTful services and understanding of HTTP protocol specifics.

· Familiarity with Git and experience with CI/CD tools for frontend applications.

· Knowledge of modern authentication and authorization mechanisms like JWT.
