About you and about the role

Apptegy is looking to add senior front end developers to our growing engineering team based in Little Rock, Arkansas. We take design and user experience seriously and are proud of the fact that our users love our platforms and come from a wide range of backgrounds and technical experience. Front-End development as such is front-and-center in our minds and plays a pivotal role in the building of new products and is critical to the ongoing improvement of our existing interfaces.

This is an exciting opportunity for a seasoned front-end engineer to come work on a highly motivated team that is building technology to revolutionize how schools communicate with their students and communities.

About you:
You understand that no one is perfect, that we all have weak spots, and you want to master the skill of self-improvement. You are driven to do amazing work and complete every task to the best of your ability. You constantly push yourself to get more done in less time by attacking your work with intensity. You ask for help when you need it, own up to your mistakes, and put the needs of your colleagues above your own ego.

Things you will do:
- Working closely with the dev team to build new product interfaces and improve existing ones.
- Deliver clean and reusable Vue.js front-end components.
- Have a strong say in design reviews and project estimates.
- Connecting to back end APIs and presenting data cleanly and beautifully.
- Be a strong advocate for front-end in the company, pushing for best practices and high standards.

- 4+ years developing front-end components using a modern front-end framework (ideally Vue.js or React).
- Must be a strong Javascript developer and have some demonstrable experience of TypeScript.
- Proficient in styling technologies (ideally SASS).
- Has one or more complex web applications currently in production.
-Top communication skills for both a technical and non-technical audience.

Desired Qualifications:
- Experience in automated testing a plus (e.g. Selenium or Cypress)
- Some general Amazon Web Services and DevOps experience.
- Awareness of Accessibility issues and related compliance.
