JavaScript Frontend Developer

 2 years ago

Our front-end team is looking for the next ranger to create the best storytelling experience on the planet. You should welcome the prospect of crafting JavaScript codes from scratch, put performance and care about putting the best code forward and do these as part of a squad, not a lone ranger. Front end is part of a product team that consists of UIUX, Product Managers, Backend developers, QA and Dev Ops. It has always been a challenge and satisfaction to see a UI design get implemented in code! 

Piktochart has an open environment through weekly sharing that encourages participations and suggestions to improve the platform. For example, in the past, we have adopted frameworks such as Cycle.js or adopted the philosophy of reactive programming from procedural thanks to these group huddles! While we do our best to adhere to standard principles like Git for code managements, Scrum for project updates and code reviews to help validate one another’s works, we also go for “best practice” and not common practices in other areas. In short, we are not just looking for code that works, but we want it to be easily maintainable in the long term and we define this by:

  • Code that is easily understood by the team
  • Less prone to bugs when there are changes
  • Easily extendable.

Some interesting projects that we are undertaking now includes a design system that has reusable components in the UI to accelerate a lot of the development in house. If all these sound like a challenge to you and the HOPEFUL values resound with you, please read on!
