If you have previously freelanced you may be familiar with some of the pain points that come with working as a contractor, tasks like time tracking, invoicing; getting business insurance, benefits; filing taxes; new hire paperwork and a host of other 'challenges'. GreenLight wants to help freelancers with all these things and more.

Background:
We are a Palo Alto based, venture funded startup in the HR / freelancer space.

You will:
• Become a core member of our development team
• Develop a data-intensive React.js workflow application for web
• Work closely with a small distributed team (initially 4-6 members)
• Create high-quality, readable, maintainable code
• Use CSS to achieve pixel-perfect renditions of provided UI designs
• Create automated front-end tests using Enzyme, Jest/Mocha, and possibly Selenium
• Participate in definition of evolving backend API

You must:
• Be able to thrive in a dynamic, startup environment
• Have 5+ years frontend web engineering experience
• Have significant React.js experience
• Have solved cross-browser compatibility issues
• Understand databases and SQL
• Be available 20+ hours weekly, if not immediately then within 2-3 weeks of start
• Be able to attend chat or video meetings as needed between 8am and 11am PST
• Have excellent written and verbal English language skills
• Want to build something great from early stage to production release

We are open to candidates seeking a contract or full-time position. You do not need to be based in our office, but we would prefer you to visit the office at least twice per week.
