Senior Front-end Developer

We're looking for Javascript developers to help us build Web and WeChat apps at scale.

You will work directly with our tech, design, strategy and PM teams, as well as our clients, to design, build and scale Web and WeChat apps used by tens of millions of users in China and abroad.

We take pride in great engineering and invest in forward thinking technologies. We adopted Docker and React in 2013, Node.js in 2010, and we’ve also been very active contributors to the JavaScript community in China, single-handedly organizing JSConf China since 2013.

If you’re looking for a place where you can learn from world-class software engineers while working on challenging projects (and not having to do 996), this is as good as it gets.

Responsibilities

  • Translate designs and prototypes into high quality front-end apps using JavaScript frameworks (e.g. React).
  • Write reusable and testable code.
  • Integrate with APIs and micro-services.
  • Optimize code for maximum performance across a wide range of clients (e.g. Web browsers, WeChat) and at scale (tens of millions of user).
  • Troubleshoot production issues, support the backend and DevOps teams in scalability and performance efforts.
  • Participate in the entire application lifecycle, including software architecture and API design.
  • Coach, mentor and spread the word about software best practices inside and outside of Wiredcraft.

Requirements

  • 4+ experience with JavaScript and JavaScript frameworks (React, Svelte, Vue.js…).
  • Experience with React.
  • Familiarity with advanced React concepts (isomorphic React, Flux, Redux, Hooks, …).
  • Experience with modern authentication mechanisms, such as (e.g. JSON Web Token).
  • Experience with automated testing.
  • Experience with benchmarking and optimization.
  • Experience working with Git and GitHub.
  • Experience working with an agile methodology (e.g. SCRUM).
  • Familiarity with RESTful APIs.
  • Experience with modern front-end development tools (Babel, NPM, Webpack, rollup, Vite…).
  • Ability to understand business requirements and translate them into technical requirements.
  • Strong communication skills.

Bonus points:

  • Familiarity with newer specifications of EcmaScript.
  • Experience with data structure libraries (e.g. Immutable.js).
  • Open Source contributions.
  • Public speaking experience.
