About you

You are someone who loves problem solving. You value simplicity over complexity. You take great satisfaction in helping others be successful and productive, and wouldn’t think to move on without documenting your work so 6-months-from-now you (or anybody else for that matter) can drop back in and understand it. You’re a self starter, an excellent communicator, and a team player.

Skills and experience you possess

  • A solid understanding of the web platform and how browsers work
  • A solid understanding of the fundamental technologies of the web platform (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, HTTP, etc.) 
  • Experience building rich web applications using current technologies (eg React, Vue, ES6+)
  • Familiarity with architectural patterns and tools used to build modern web applications
  • Experience profiling and debugging web applications
  • Experience working with developers of open source projects to resolve bugs or make improvements
  • Your documentation and verbal communication skills are excellent, and you’re able to collaborate and rally support with people on and off your team
  • You have productive habits, healthy process awareness, and good teamwork skills and instincts
  • You have good communication and documentation skills. 
  • Experience providing guidance around frontend best practices, and proposing and exploring new frameworks/libraries for teams. 

You will thrive at Hypothesis if you

  • Love learning new things
  • Are committed to improving both as a technologist and a human being
  • Are tenacious, self-directed, and highly motivated
  • Have strong problem-solving skills
  • Have led collaborations with business and technology teams to develop FE applications
  • Have excellent, people-friendly written and verbal skills
  • Are as adept at collaborating with designers as you are with backend developers
  • Enjoy helping others around you grow as developers and be successful
  • Communicate clearly and effectively
  • Are naturally inclined to proactively document your code as part of your development process. 
  • Approach your work with a mindset that allows for growth and change
