As a Front-End Engineer, you’ll take business requirements and leverage Voice of Customer to help us build a world-class user experience.
Is a redesign of one our systems on deck? You’ll help bring carefully crafted designs and wireframes to life. You will work alongside a team of other front-end engineers and UI/UX designers to ensure that the system we build is forward-looking and future friendly. You will be able to provide your input and ideas on how to architect and structure the new system so that it becomes clean, scalable and maintainable code.
Did a critical bug pop in the system? You will help us quickly identify the source of such bug and figure out the best available patch to ensure our clients are only briefly affected by it.
Are we building a new feature or adding an enhancement for an existing product? You will help us scope the feature in order to determine timelines and translate it into technical requirements. You’ll help us build an end product that meets the requirements and keeps our projects on-time. When you are working on an enhancement that does not require a design, you are comfortable implementing the UI using existing front-end patterns.
Is new front-end code ready to be merged into the codebase? Help us keep our code clean, readable and scalable and provide any necessary suggestions to your peers to ensure that the code is top quality and meets all established standards.
