Front-End Developer

Opus One Solutions


Creating a planet fuelled by reliable, clean energy isn’t what keeps us up at night; it’s what gets us out of bed. At Opus One Solutions, our software platform GridOS® helps us pursue solutions that will change how countries access, optimize and distribute electrical energy. From microgrids that keep things running in the event of an outage, to helping electric utilities optimize their operations and allowing homeowners to feed energy into a power grid, we're powering a more sustainable future.

Our tech stack

Our tech stack is deep because we interact with real things in the real world where the outcome matters. Our systems collect, analyze and interact with other systems in real-time. Our team uses:

  • Python to build the backend of GridOS.
  • React JavaScript on the front end of GridOS.
  • Docker for containerization and deployment.
  • Gitlab for repository management.
  • Ansible to deploy environment configurations.
  • Terraform to provision new environments.

The opportunity:

We are looking for a Front-End JavaScript Developer who is motivated to combine the art of design with the art of programming. Responsibilities will include implementing visual elements and their behaviors with user interactions. You will be working with both front-end and back-end web developers to build all client-side logic. You will also be bridging the gap between the visual elements and the server-side infrastructure, taking an active role on both sides, and defining how the application looks and functions.

Who are you?

You are a strong Front-End JavaScript Developer and you enjoy working autonomously to solve complex problems. This is an exciting opportunity for someone who wants to think creatively and be innovative. Someone ready to step out of their comfort zone. Someone eager to build a robust, resilient and high-availability product. This is a chance to be at the forefront of new technology.

What will our new Front End Developer work on?

  • Develop new user-facing features and refactor and enhance existing features
  • Ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs
  • Optimize applications for maximum speed and scalability and build reusable code and libraries
  • Assure that all user input is validated before submitting to back-end services
  • Support testing processes, troubleshoot and resolve issues.
  • Work in an Agile/SCRUM team setting including cross-functional structures and varying levels of management.
  • Requirements

    • The education. You have a degree in Computer Science or equivalent.
    • The experience. You have 3+ years experience developing large, stateful, component-based web applications using modern JavaScript frameworks (i.e. React, Angular, AngularJS, Vue, etc.) Since we use React, you must have a thorough understanding of React.js and its core principles. You’re familiar with version control systems and automated testing frameworks.
    • The technical expertise. Your programming skills are strong and you can quickly learn new technologies. You have good understanding of web markup, including HTML5 and CSS3 and familiar with CSS preprocessors such as Sass, front-end build tools, such as Webpack, Grunt, and/or Gulp.js and with JavaScript module loaders, such as Require.js and AMD. You are also proficient understanding of cross-browser compatibility issues and ways to work around such issues and browser rendering behaviour and performance.
    • The communication. You have great communication skills that help you build positive relationships with your teammates.
