React Developer - Remote

POSTED Apr 3rd

Kanopi Studios
San Francisco, CA (Remote)

As a React Developer, your day-to-day includes spending some of your time hands-on developing and collaborating on sites while staying accountable to schedules, estimates, project requirements, and high standards of quality. This position is fast-paced, deals with shifting priorities, and reports to Katherine White, Director of Engineering.

Your typical work week might include:

  • Developing, testing, and maintaining progressive web applications in React.

  • Collaborating with backend and full stack developers to enhance the user experience.

  • Working closely with user experience and visual designers, validating creative solutions that take into account technical and organizational requirements.

  • Troubleshooting cross-browser compatibility issues.

  • Developing responsive products which render in multiple browsers and across multiple devices.

  • Developing performant, reusable, and clean code.

  • Producing technical documentation and testing artifacts.


This position is full-time. Salary and compensation is commensurate with experience. Not to worry. The pay is competitive and what you’d expect for this role. This is a 100% remote role, but you must live and be able to work in North America.


We are looking for candidates who…

  • Have 5+ years of experience in core frontend technologies, working in an agency environment.

  • Demonstrated expertise in React, including API-based content management.

  • Definitely have experience with HTML5; SASS/SCSS/CSS; and server-side JavaScript (ES6) development.

  • Have writing and architecture skills, with the ability to produce comprehensive user stories and technical specification documentation.

  • Possibly have experience working in a Continuous Integration (CI) environment (CircleCI, Travis, Bamboo or Jenkins preferred), and knowledge of both relational and NoSQL database technologies.

  • Demonstrate inclusive, supportive, and thoughtful interpersonal communication skills.

  • Have a passion for modern development tools and methods, such as atomic and responsive design, gitflow, container-based environments, task runners, CSS preprocessors, IDEs, and CI/CD platforms.
