We believe front-end development is about understanding the challenges of modern web development and the tools available in the ecosystem to address them. As a Senior Front-End Engineer, you will be responsible for implementing static visual designs and interactive elements that users engage with through their web browser when using a web application. You will work with the UI/UX designer and bridge the gap between graphical design and technical implementation, taking an active role on both sides and defining how the application looks as well as how it works. You will be supported by Software Engineers, who are responsible for server-side application logic and integration of the front-end work. If you are a Senior Front-End Engineer who is passionate about your craft, motivated to combine the art of design with the art of programming, then you are right for this role.
