SweetRush has an exciting opportunity for an experienced creative front-end developer (full stack is also acceptable) with an eye for graphic and UX design!
ABOUT THE ROLE:
This is an important role on the Engineering and Development department’s Course Development team, and you will be reporting directly to the Course Development team lead.
Historically, the developers most successful in this role contribute to multiple projects at the same time; show a willingness to improve existing techniques, frameworks, and templates; and come up with innovations of their own. You will succeed if you truly enjoy active collaboration with your colleagues and don’t mind stepping in when your help is required.
This is a remote position and a great opportunity to work from home. Candidates from all geographic locations are welcome to apply; however, our development team is mostly based in North and Latin America, and you should be willing to work during our business hours.
7+ years as a front-end or full-stack developer in a creative environment
High level of competency in HTML5 and CSS3
Familiarity with one or more frameworks, preferably React and Node.js
While React is the most commonly used framework at the moment, your proven ability to quickly harness unfamiliar technology is more important than an intimate knowledge of any of the given frameworks.
Most importantly – you can look at just about any cool effect, interaction, animation, parallax, website on the web, and say – Even if I can’t do this now, I want to try!
Understanding of responsive design and mobile-first principles
Soft skills and generic productivity tools
Ability to clearly communicate in English
English verbal communication skills are an absolute must because the position requires frequent interaction with peers and clients.
Experience with version control systems such as Git or Subversion
Experience working in a team development environment or demonstrating a capacity to do so
Enjoy learning and experimenting, open to new ideas
YOU WILL IMPRESS EVERYONE IF YOU:
Have built a learning simulation
Have experience with mobile app development and distribution
Have experience with graphic and UX design
Know anything about Adapt Framework
YOU MAY BE EXPECTED TO:
Complete a test assignment
Be interviewed by a number of highly judgmental yet supremely talented future colleagues
THE ESSENCE OF THE JOB
OK, now that you’ve made it through all the obligatory language, you may be wondering what this position is really all about. Therefore, please read the rest of this job description carefully!
It all boils down to your ability to make a simple claim: I can do it!
If we show you an interactive website with intricate animations, a complicated menu system, and multiple interdependencies, you should state: I can do it!
If we need to harness a complex web-based gaming engine and use it for the first time to build a learning simulation, you should confidently assert: I can do it!
If we need to produce a large volume of digital training materials in a record short period of time, you should answer: I can do it!
And if we need an adventurous engineer to lead the team in the creation of a system that is completely different from everything we have done before, we’re most definitely looking for the loud I can do it!
And even more importantly, you must want to do it.
