-Architect, develop and maintain front-end libraries.

Skills required:
-You breathe Javascript day-in, day-out and yet feel that there’s more that you can learn.
-You are aware of Javascript design patterns and can architect a fairly complex UI without feeling the need of a framework.
-You don’t shy away from writing HTML and CSS because you love designing a beautiful webpage with Semantic markup.
-You know what CSS pre/post processors can do for you and can make a fair judgement at choosing them (or not) e.g SASS/LESS/PostCSS etc.

Required Experience:
-Minimum product dev experience of 2+ years in web/mobile startups with expertise in designing and implementing high performance web applications.
-You're an incessant problem solver and tougher the problem gets, more fun you have.
-You've proven experience in the past to showcase the previous point -- either in your past work experience or during study courses by getting involved in open-source projects (like GSoC etc).
-You love to own end to end responsibility, starting from defining the problem statement (either yourself or alongside your peers), development (PoC if needed), testing, releasing in staging & then production env and finally monitoring.
