About the role

Brainscape, a profitable fast-growing education startup with over 4 million registered users, is seeking a contract front-end developer to bring our new brand designs to life through Javascript, CSS, HTML5, and a bit of Rails views.

  • Implement javascript and CSS animations to enhance pages' interactivity
  • Perform technical development of JS and CSS for CMS-delivered web pages
  • Make small design, interaction, and responsiveness recommendations as needed
  • Optimize pages for maximum speed, scalability, and SEO benefits

Requirements

  • 3+ years experience with HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript
  • 1+ years experience working with Rails views
  • Strong understanding of CSS and CSS Animations
  • Strong understanding of mobile responsiveness
  • Strong understanding of browser rendering behavior and performance
  • Familiarity with CMS platforms such as Wordpress, HubSpot, or Ghost
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • BONUS - Any React, React Native, or back-end Ruby on Rails experience
