* 3+ years of professional experience with JavaScript, Node.js, and related technologies like: React, AngularJS, Vue, Redux, Rollup, Webpack, Koa, Express, Ava, Jest, Flow, TypeScript, etc.
* Experience with cross-browser development using HTML5, CSS, JSON

* Experience with version control systems (GitHub preferred)
* Deep understanding of JavaScript and how it operates under challenging conditions
* Possess a strong technical background and deep knowledge of software engineering principles, exceptional problem solving, design, programming, and testing skills
* Pragmatic approach to providing engineering solutions that solve business needs
* Desire to learn new languages and technology

Desired Skills:

* Experience with AWS and containerization (Docker, Kubernetes) is strongly desired
* Deep understanding of JavaScript debugging, cross-browser development
* Experience with responsive design, grids, AJAX, Node.js
* Experience with unit testing tools and continuous deploy systems
* Game development experience is not required, but an understanding of games is needed
