The Opportunity

Modern Tribe is looking for an experienced UI/Front End Developer to join our team as a freelance contractor.

If you have experience with advanced JavaScript, frameworks including React and React Native and want to apply those skills on top of a variety of delivery systems, from integrations with large scale WordPress installs to custom backend and server side rendered platforms you’re probably a good match for this role.

You will enjoy unique challenges and build hybrid app systems or complex interactive UI’s alongside other Front End/Back End Developers that will require deep collaboration with your team. Performance optimization and testing will be a required skill set, and knowledge of the latest asset bundling systems with optimal performance configuration for them will be key. You will also implement designs accurately with progressive css/templating methods and work with the rest of the team to identify reusable code proactively, abstracting that to internal tools as applicable.

This opportunity is for a person ready to challenge themselves with a diverse team on a wide range of JavaScript intensive projects. We foster a collaborative and engaging environment, and are looking for people who want to grow our systems with us as we create the best interfaces and experiences we can for our clients.
