We are a remote-first web development agency and we are looking for a driven Senior Front-end Engineer.  Are you experienced and current in your JavaScript and front-end construction skills?  Do you have depth in React, Redux, Hooks and other JavaScript-adjacent hotness?  Like to work collaboratively with a team of back-end and front-end engineers?  Looking for a no-politics zone to do your best work?  Mercury is the place for you!

The Work

The Front-end developer will be engaged in a range of web application development including:
  • Solve client problems with high-quality software
  • Large-scale web application development with ReactJS
  • Custom business applications utilizing rich HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript-driven front ends
  • Develop Progressive Web Applications
  • Set patterns and establish team-wide best practices for front-end development

Skills & Requirements

The position requires strong application development using JavaScript, React, HTML5, CSS3 and related ecosystem tooling.  Experience with Redux and TypeScript are key supporting skills while mature development expertise in the construction of isomorphic JavaScript single page applications is key.

Mercury's Front-end Engineers possess strong skills in the above technologies and just as important front end design patterns, common interface frameworks and testing.  A passion for web standards and modern interface/JavaScript frameworks is also pretty darn important.

Some Specifics

At Mercury you will:
  • Live and thrive in React, JavaScript and single page applications
  • Build modular React components with directives and ES2017, ES2016, ES6 and whatever they call it next
  • Work with a full team following GitFlow with regular pull requests and continuous deployment pipelines
  • Write RESTful API specs for back end devs to construct or for you to construct with Node.JS
  • Deploy solutions to the cloud including Azure and (sometimes) AWS
Proficiency and comfort on Agile teams (specifically, Scrum with 2 week sprints) will be a major plus for this position.

What Kind of Projects Will You Work On?

  • Web, mobile and collaboration applications for the Southeast's fastest growing commercial real estate firms
  • Progressive web application (PWA) for one of the nation’s leading furniture retailers
  • Ecommerce, operational management and transactional reporting system for a funded late-stage startup
  • PWA applications for Fortune 50 consumer products field workforce
  • Data dashboards, drill down business intelligence reports and mobile reporting for global professional services firms
