Zipdev’s co-founders, Mike Lenny and Daniel Altenburg, first met while living in Lima, Peru, where they earned each other’s trust playing rugby and traveling around Latin America together. Zipdev was born after they had both moved back to San Diego, when Mike asked Daniel for help finding solid software engineers to help develop an app he wanted to build.
At first they struggled to find the right option. Trying to build out a full team software development team in California was costly, and a couple false starts with teams in disparate time zones was discouraging. But soon they realized that they had a resource that they knew well right in their own backyard: Latin America.
Zipdev is looking for a Mid to Senior React Front-end Developer to join our 100% remote and international team! You will work with other Front-end Developers and a team of UX Designers to develop new UI components and views in React bases on UX specifications in Figma/Sketch.
If you are interested in working for a US-based company and love working on a variety of tasks, then we want to hear from you!
Jest (unit tests)
Responsive design (mobile and desktop) experience
Storybook JS (UI component development)
CSS-in-JS frameworks (Styled components / Emotion)
UI frameworks (Material, Chakra, Semantic)
Webpack 4+ and/or FE build tools and bundling
GraphQL and/or traditional REST communication
Someone with an eye and patience for detail, who is able to take visual requirements and reproduce pixel-perfect replications in code
A clear communicator that is able to articulate problems and even present architecture/design in front of clients. If you don’t like to speak in front of groups, or don’t like interacting with other humans, then this job isn’t for you.
Self-motivated individuals who know they need to get a job done and do not require constant hand-holding or oversight.
Someone who desires remote work and autonomy. This is not for you if you think of work as a chance to meet people and make friends around the water cooler. You also need to be able to clearly separate your work time from the rest of your life and diligently get the job done.
Someone who reads this job description and their resume/cover letter accurately references these requirements and speaks to each point with specific examples and/or work experience.
What you will do
Your primary responsibility is to cleanly and efficiently build application components using React based on requirements from the UX/design team. This includes:
Taking written and design requirements (in Figma, Confluence) and implementing in React/CSS
Ability to assess a technical or design requirement and break it into subtasks with accurate estimates on time to deliver
Act as a primary React developer, which includes helping less experienced developers in understanding React and performing code reviews
Documenting your design and implementing core components/documentation using Storybook.js
Deconstructing design and business requirements to architect back-end API contracts
