  • Deep knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript best practices and familiar with frameworks like Bootstrap or Foundation.
  • Production experience with ECMAScript 6 (ES6) and have used reactive frameworks such as Vue, React, or Angular.
  • You are knowledgeable on best practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations.
  • Experience maintaining an existing code base while we transition to modern frameworks is a major plus.
