We are looking to hire more Front-End Developers right now. If you’re a talented Front-End Developer, a self-starter interested in solving real-world problems, we may be the perfect place for you to come and do the best work of your life. We are pushing the boundaries of problem-solving and modern user interaction to transform an extremely complex industry making it simpler, human, more efficient and transparent. You will be joining us on the ground floor so this is a high impact opportunity.

You will be responsible for :

Developing the Product - bring cross-functional experiences and deep domain understanding:
We are developing an Uber + Yelp equivalent for the Global Container Logistics community. You will have to understand this complex industry, multi-user experience flows and helps us in building tools that will enable businesses of all sizes in seamless trading across borders (it should be like logistics is magically happening for them!)
Help build simple, intuitive and highly efficient interfaces to automate the repetitive parts of logistics (you guessed it right, a good sense of aesthetics is must!).
Develop high fidelity prototypes across multiple form factors and build an effective loop to gather feedback from both the team and the current user base.
Ensure design consistency of the product to pixel level across all the factors from desktop to mobile

Find the 80/20:
You're in a meeting where someone wants to build a new feature. And in their mind, they've got it all spec'ed out. It slices, it dices and probably washes your car too. In your mind, they're racking up costs and complexity(one month for that part, two months for that other part, uh oh). On a bad day, you’d just give them the sobering news. But a good day looked like this. Once you understood what the objective of their feature was for customers, you could sometimes see a way to get 80% of the benefit for 20% of the cost.
Provide options:
Never say "that's impossible" or “we can never do that." Instead, you find options and can communicate them to everyone in the company.
Grow front end and user interaction leaders:
Build and manage a team of front-end developers and user interaction designers
Making the whole greater than the sum of its parts
We are applying technology and problem solving to the logistics industry like it has not been done before. The risk is absolutely encouraged.

You should have :
2-5 years of experience in developing responsive & human context-oriented products across all the factors from desktop web application to mobile application
Bachelors / Masters Degree in Computer Science
Coursework in digital interaction design would be a definite plus
Extensive experience in the following is a must
Front-end web development technologies viz. Reactjs, HTML5, CSS3, Jquery, AJAX etc.
OOP preferably with JavaScript
REST framework
Google analytics
Search Engine Optimization
Version control tools - Git
Back-end integration and server-side templating
Writing user-specific test cases
Basic knowledge of pre-processing CSS systems viz. LESS, SASS for web page optimization
Experience integrating with 3rd party social APIs
Experience in working with a cross-functional product development team would be a plus

You should be:
Calm under pressure, have a great work ethic and communicate well
Self-aware and always pushing for a higher standard. Always proactive, open to new ideas and personal feedback
Antifragile: with every failure, you should become stronger and better.
Detail-oriented and absolutely intolerant to compromise or sub-optimal shortcuts
Problem solver with a global mindset
Job type
Visa sponsorship
Not Available
2+ years
