Front-end developer (Cape Town)

Are you a front-end developer with a great eye for design? Are you fluent in HTML/JS/CSS with a firm belief that JavaScript or Node can change the world? Then we're looking for you to join our Cape Town office.

As a front-end developer you'll:

  • Live inside a browser.
  • care that that this sentence looks off (and that the rolldown link above is still visible)
  • Be comfortable with a Javascript debugger (we've got lots of our own JS).
  • Be able to figure out CSS that the rest of us struggle with (Vertical centering, how do you work?!)
  • Use git in a team setting.
  • Adapt JavaScript libraries.
  • Have an intelligent discussion on selectors, box models, fonts, calls to action, and UX.
  • Panel beat existing web interfaces and code.
  • Design, implement, test and deploy new web UIs.
  • Work with the back-end devs to ensure your code plays nice.
  • Provide customer support.

We hire primarily on fit and potential. Inexperience isn't a hinderance if you can demonstrate an ability to quickly learn. A degree is preferable but not an absolute requirement.

Send us a mail if you're interested, we'd love to chat.
