As a Software Engineer (Frontend JavaScript) at SpotOn, you’ll be tasked with working alongside a few full stack engineers and two dedicated frontend engineers (one UI/UX, one JavaScript) to build component-based web software, using modern best practices and a “Keep It Seriously Simple” approach where possible. Our frontend architecture was retooled last year with ES2016 (through Babel), RiotJS (we’re currently the largest user of this library that we know of aside from the authors), Redux, and Webpack. We’re looking for someone to build out new products using these technologies (or better ones, if you can make an argument for them!), as well as continue migrating our ever-shrinking pile of BackboneJS pages to the new setup.
