Javascript Developer In Johannesburg

Overview of the position 

We are hiring all levels. Years don’t equate to skill, some of our best engineers are under 25. Our teams are small (5 max) and pack the punch of most 10 man teams (not joking). We automate stuff. We use AWS, so you should already have experience with serverless tech. You should also have experience with a modern frontend framework (React, Vue, Angular) and if it’s not React it better be good experience. You will work across the stack with our teams on multiple projects.

Our Stack
