  • Must have experience with React, React Hooks and ES6. 

  • Previous backend experience is desirable (but not required).

  • Full ownership of software projects from conception through to launch and ongoing support of features in production.

  • Demonstrated experience in lifting the quality of an existing large code-base by applying automated unit tests used as part of a Continuous Integration suite. 

  • Experience with full-stack web testing is a plus.

  • Comfortable at the command line in a Linux environment.

  • Desire to get involved with the entire web stack (in particular Django and PostgreSQL).

  • Degree or equivalent in Computer Science or related field preferred
