  • Be actively involved in all team ceremonies, 2-week sprints and retrospectives, working closely with product managers and other disciplines
  • Work closely with the back end developers, QA and wider engineering and experience design team.

  • High level understanding of CSS/SASS, ideally using styled-components along with semantic HTML
