  • We're a dedicated, fun team of people at a comfortable and easy to reach office you'll enjoy being around: one team for one product

  • Experience with React in a professional environment

  • Experience working on Native iOS and/or Android projects is a plus

  • Experience with working in teams, TDD and CI/CD is also a big plus

Technical skills:

  • You should be in LOVE with Javascript (borderline unhealthy relationships permitted) and understand why React was quite the revolution

  • Experience with HTML5 and CSS3, LESS, Twig and #{} are useful

  • You know and value unit tests and behavioural tests, and like debugging

  • You’ve learned once… and you write anywhere
