The Brave New Software Project, Inc seeks an experienced Senior Frontend Engineer to join our new team for a censorship-resistant cryptocurrency exchange.

  • Maintain a well-organized codebase of components
  • Translate mockups and requirements into fully functioning features using React
  • Optimize applications for scalability and maximum speed
  • Mentor and train junior frontend engineers on coding standards and design techniques

  • 6+ years professional software experience
  • Deep understanding of JavaScript language, including ES6+ syntax and Typescript superset
  • Understanding of state-management patterns such as Redux
