  • Willing to get involved in some back-end work with NodeJS, Koa, Heroku, SQL, etc.

  • Solid experience in other frameworks and javascript to meet the 2+ years requirement is fine, but you must be keen to learn the technology above.

  • Open source development workflows using git and github.

  • Communicating and collaborating on designs remotely using diagrams, video conferencing, instant messaging, prototypes, etc. 

Bonus points:

  • Passionate about UX design. See things from a user’s point of view, and figure out the best UI for them.

  • Good understanding of common user interface patterns and pitfalls.
