Integrating front end applications with our Java stack
Building applications that are responsive, performant, and accessible
Being an advocate throughout the company for great UX

Familiar with front end build systems (e.g. Webpack) and package management (e.g. npm)
Ability to manipulate DOM efficiently and understanding different CSS techniques
Bachelor Degree or higher in Computer Science or related fields

The Article space is housed in a converted warehouse with in-house photo studios, an airy open layout, an open kitchen filled with snacks, and a variety of ice cream choices just up the street.
