To help us level up, you'll ideally have:

    • React!!! We are using React to build everything, however we are also trying to use as less Javascript as possible. Phased Code splitting, and partial hydration are expecting you.  TypeScript + JSDoc. We believe that TypeScript and a healthy amount of JSDoc creates more friendly environment for everyone.  Component Driven Structure. We follow the Component Driven approach, and are obsessed with Visual Regression tests with storybook  You know - everything should be tested. Not much, mostly using react-testing-library  SSR. We need it, we love it, it's a must have HTML + CSS. We dont just want a CCS Guru, but would be great to see experience in grid/adaptive/responsible/semantic HTML/SCSS - Yes we use SCSS, not any modern CSS-in-JS approach you can think of. Our values in your DNA: Customer First, Own It, Stronger Together and Change the Game

Bonus points for:

    • Experience contributing to mainstream open source projects. Working on search engine frontend development. Redux. We are not using Redux much, but any experience with it would be valuable. GraphQL. We are also not using GraphQL, at least today, but knowing it might help style the future. BEM. We actually do use BEM approach ;)

We’re looking for someone who always finds new boundaries to cross - a future Zipster who will obsess over excellence and make constant improvements for our customers. We’ve removed the red tape here to get things done quickly, so if you see a problem, own the solution. You've gotta hustle at Zip!

If you only meet some of the requirements for this role, that's okay. We value a diverse range of backgrounds and ideas and believe this is fundamental for our future success. So, if you have the curiosity to learn and the willingness to teach what you know, we'd love to hear from you.

We pride ourselves on creating an inclusive workplace that provides equal opportunities to all persons regardless of their age, cultural background, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, veteran status, or anything else.
