Full Time

Front End Web Developer

We're looking for a front end web developer to join our team. We have recently won a number of client projects and are looking for an extra pair of dev hands to help the workflow and ease the project list.

Necessary Skills

  • Tailwind CSS - We're looking primarily for a developer that has used Tailwind CSS before or is comfortable using utility first frameworks. We use this framework for faster development, and you will need to work with our coding rules and best practices. This means you must know HTML and know this in-depth.

  • Other Tech/Languages - Our core framework relies on vanilla JS and requires knowledge of AlpineJS for speed. As well, we'd be looking for a developer that's comfortable using webpack/gulp, git and node/npm.

  • Accessible Code - It's vital that the code is accessible and accessibility rules are considered when developing. E.g. Using aria parameters, focus states and image alt tags as a fundamental example.

  • Communication - Because the position is potentially going to be remote, communication over Slack and Email (And updates on Trello/Monday) will be vital to keeping the team up to date with progress on projects.

  • Time Management Skills - It's essential that you show exceptional self-time management skills. At MadeByShape, all of our team members self manage their own time when given a deadline. So knowing how to split up deadlines into smaller chunks and know which ones are priority is more on the developer than a project manager.

  • Attention to Details - We like pixel-perfect designs and colours being correct, so attention to detail when developing is a must. Developers are responsible for their quality assurance and testing their work
  • VueJS - Although the projects required for the short term won't likely use VueJS, an understanding of VueJS and frameworks like Nuxt and Gridsome would be great to understand if taken on for a full-time role or further shorter contracts
