Worksmith Senior Front End Developer

As a senior front end developer at Worksmith, you will be expected to not only contribute to, but take ownership of, our front end technology stack.  In a given week, you might be working on a new feature in our React Native mobile app or streamlining our React component library to be used across our web portals, and are expected to contribute thoughtful, business-oriented solutions to the challenges that arise with each.

Being a front end developer at Worksmith means getting your hands dirty to truly understand the business.  For example, you might:

  • Shadow the sales team to understand the client onboarding process and devise a solution to increase the signup conversion rate.

  • Work with the management team to design a sleek and scalable reporting dashboard.

  • Review client and service provider feedback with our product team to identify common pain points in the software and produce more efficient, easier to use systems.


You'll be owning the design, implementation, testing, launch, and support of the features you write. Developers here are expected to be self sufficient and are given the latitude to make autonomous decisions with their code.

  • Can write reusable, maintainable, bullet-proof code

  • Displays a self-motivated drive to continuously improve

  • Is motivated to not only achieve but exceed expectations
