  • Working in a cross-discipline environment with designers and other developers to prototype early concepts to vet ideas
  • Collaborating on new technologies and processes within a company or community
  • Awareness of web accessibility and empathy for building products for people with different abilities and needs

You’ll get to do things like:

  • Learn the latest front end technologies and standards to ensure we are always using the best techniques possible
