Overview:
We are looking for someone with strong front-end skills who has 6+ years of experience using both vanilla javascript and other javascript libraries.

More important than specific technical skills though is that you’re a strong problem solver who loves to learn — we’re not experts in everything and we don’t expect you to be either. We’re all just makers and innovators, so as long as you love to build awesome stuff you’ll fit right in.
