  • Component Development: Build reusable components and front-end libraries for future use, ensuring consistency across our applications
  • Collaboration: Work closely with back-end engineers to integrate APIs (Hasura, Typesense) and ensure seamless functionality across the entire stack
  • Stay Updated: Keep up to date with the latest trends and advancements in front-end development and UI/UX design. Advocate for the adoption of cutting-edge practices and technologies within the team

To thrive in this role, you must have:

  • 3-5+ years of work experience in front-end development, with a strong emphasis on UI/UX design
  • Experience in a B2B SaaS (UI + API) environment, ideally within the logistics tech industry

  • Proficient in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (ES6+)
  • Strong understanding of responsive design principles and cross-browser compatibility

  • Strong knowledge with back-end technologies and API integration
  • Ability to translate design mockups and wireframes into high-quality code
  • Strong problem-solving skills and attention to detail
  • Empathetic communicator who values diverse perspectives and is willing to compromise when necessary
  • Self-starter and comfortable working independently and thrives in a lean & small, fast-paced team environment, capable of working autonomously and driving results without constant oversight
