Frontend Designer


[This is a full-time, fully-remote role - no agencies or recruiters please]
The role :

Frontend Designers at Kyero build and own innovative web applications using advanced JavaScript and advanced CSS with a desire to achieve good design, usability, accessibility, performance, and mobile/responsive web pages.

You will be responsible for sound technical execution of web projects through hands-on development, quality-assurance, and prototyping. These projects will require close collaboration with our engineering team.

Projects may occur simultaneously, so you must be able to juggle multiple concurrent initiatives. We will also expect you to champion sound front end standards to engineers, designers, and management.

What we are looking for:
  • A passion for doing things the right way. A defendable opinion on what comprises the “right way” is a major plus.
  • Demonstrate that you’ve built outstanding websites from concept to launch.
  • A keen eye for interaction design and finishing touches.
  • A sense of humour and/or an ability to convincingly simulate a sense of humour.
  • An abundant desire to achieve perfection, but also a readiness to necessarily compromise.

What your day will look like:
  • Brief catch up on your plans to sync up.
  • Go off and crank on your project, checking in with other team members throughout the day with questions and updates.
  • You leave the code in a better state than when you found it (progressive refactor).
  • Participate in code reviews to ensure code quality and distribute knowledge.
  • Continuous integration and deployment.

Technical requirements:
  • 3+ years of experience working as a Frontend Designer.
  • Advanced level knowledge of JavaScript, CSS, and HTML5.
  • Understanding of user-centered design, progressive enhancement and graceful degradation, accessibility, SEO, responsive design, and website performance.
  • Familiarity with React and Redux.
  • Proficiency with Git/Github or other distributed version control systems.
  • Proficiency with Chrome Developer Tools.
  • Proficiency with the command line.
  • To be geographically situated in a time zone between UTC-1 and  UTC+3.
  • Team player with clear communication skills.
  • To be comfortable and productive working 100% remotely.

Optional, but a major plus:

  • You speak great English, but it is not your native language.
  • Proficiency with Ruby, Rails.
  • Experience with CSS preprocessors like SCSS.
  • Understanding of A/B testing.
  • Mastery of recognising Arial versus Helvetica.
  • Sufficiently appalled by the text line-height used in this job listing.
