(Contractor - Remote OK) Newfront is looking for an experienced front-end engineer to help us build a fresh new marketing site for our company. This is a 1-3 month contract position with the possibility to extend the contract or join our team longer-term when the project concludes. We’re looking to kick things off around October 15th. Our HQ is in San Francisco, but we welcome remote contractors based anywhere in the world. We are looking for candidates who share our passion and belief that the best technology is simple, beautiful, accessible, and usable. Using modern front-end technology (e.g. CSS-in-JS, React, Next.js, GraphQL) and tools (e.g. Framer, Figma) we expect front-end engineers to fully represent users' needs and uphold product quality through close partnership with product, design, and user research.
- 5+ years of front-end engineering and/or work related industry experience. You have previous success developing and shipping quality websites and web applications with a user-empathetic mindset
- You care about industry best practices: You understand which features can be used across the various browsers, you understand how to make a website accessible, and you know how to implement responsive design.
- You have an understanding of interaction design: You're able to understand why particular interactions should be used and when. You're able to recommend particular UI patterns to solve user problems and understand the trade-offs.
- You care about the tiny details. You notice when elements are off by 1 or 2 pixels and it will eat at you until you fix it. You're aware that loss of quality is often death by a thousand cuts.
