Q: Why did the React class component feel relieved?
A: Because it was now off the hook
Now that we’ve got your attention … let’s face it, there are a lot of ugly websites out there. We mean … A. Lot.
BLOX Digital means to change that, at least on the new products and sites we are creating. 
We are developing a new product and we don’t want ugly. We want beautiful. And functional.
That’s where you come in.
We are expanding our award-winning development staff, and we are looking for top-notch UI developers. We use a ReactJS framework with the front end connecting to the headless CMS backend through APIs that is data heavy in design. You’ll be adding features and tweaking already developed code.
Working with other developers, designers and product managers, you’ll deliver high quality, highly useable experiences and help build brand consistency. Your work will have a direct impact on users and will be deployed across more than 75+ markets. Along the way, you’ll be working on other industry-changing products in the pipeline.
To get us across the finish line, you’ll work to understand the UI requirements; design and support public-facing UI components; configure and deploy any needed server-level tools as well as monitor and manage front-end performance, documenting how it all works.
Sound fun? 
If you have more than three (5+) years of experience with HTML5; CSS3, JavaScript, ReactJS and NodeJS, read on.
We’re looking for developers with:
Deep understanding of JavaScript and experience with TypeScript
Excellent written and verbal communication skills
Experience with development, maintenance and testing of ReactJS applications
Building reusable components and front-end libraries for future use
Translating designs and wireframes into high-quality, nimble code
Experience with RESTful APIs
Knowledge of modern authorization mechanisms, such as JWT
Familiarity with front-end development tools such as Babel, Webpack and NPM
Experience building scalable high traffic front-end applications
Ability to understand business requirements and translate them into technical requirements
Ability to quickly learn new processes, tools and technical applications
Strong time management skills – including the ability to work well under pressure
 If this sounds like you, we need to talk.
Here’s what we offer:
Fully remote position
Generous vacation and time away policy
Very competitive salary
Growth and advancement opportunities
A great team to work with
At BLOX Digital, we look beyond a résumé and look at the person. We can’t wait to meet you.
