  • 3+ years working with ReactJS/Redux (or similar, such as Angular/Vue)
  • 3+ years configuring and optimizing Webpack builds
  • Strong understanding of the latest ES standards and language features
  • Strong understanding of modern asynchronous architecture (lazy/optimistic loading, handling 'offline' application state, etc.)
  • Strong understanding of how to measure and optimize frontend performance and pagespeed metrics
  • Strong understanding of how roles, permissions, and feature flags affected frontend architecture
  • Experience developing with a test-driven mentality
  • Proficiency with Git
  • A good understanding of CI/CD
