Frontend Developer

Moving can be one of the most stressful events in a person’s life. 

Our goal at moveBuddha is to simplify that process and give people peace of mind that their move will go smoothly. 

As a front-end developer, you will play a crucial role in crafting user-centric web interfaces that deliver outstanding user experiences. 

You’ll immerse yourself in our business strategy and ensure we’re meeting the technical needs of the business, our team, and our users.

A glimpse at your day as our Front-End Developer

In this role, you’ll immerse yourself in our platform and own the code that is deployed.  Day-to-day, this might include tasks such as:

  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams including UI/UX designers and back-end developers to develop high-quality web applications that align with business requirements and design guidelines

  • Implement responsive designs that work seamlessly across various devices and browsers

  • Write clean, maintainable, and efficient HTML and CSS code, ensuring adherence to best practices and standards

  • Develop interactive and dynamic user interfaces using ReactJS, incorporating state management libraries, writing tests, and integrating with back-end APIs

  • Participate in code reviews, providing constructive feedback and suggestions to maintain code quality and consistency within the development team

  • Troubleshoot and debug front-end issues to ensure smooth functionality and optimal user experience

  • Stay up-to-date with industry trends, best practices, and emerging technologies in front-end development to continuously improve the team's capabilities
    Contribute to improving development processes and workflows to enhance efficiency and collaboration within the team

As our ideal candidate, you…

  • Are detail-oriented.  You understand the project requirements and are able to provide a reliable technical solution delivered in a reasonable amount of time.

  • Get excited about writing tests.  You understand the importance of good test coverage and are never in such a hurry that you leave this step out of your process or planning.

  • Write elegant but readable code.  You appreciate elegant code so long as it is easy enough for another developer to understand and extend it.

  • Can estimate your time well.  It’s not the easiest thing to do but being able to provide reasonable time estimates for deliverables is critical to our success.

  • Work well with others.  You have an uncanny ability to propose technical solutions in layman's terms and are patient with others who are not as technically inclined.

  • Are curious.  You are interested in how things work, and in making them work better.
