Frontend Engineer 🔥
Sporty’s sites are some of the most popular on the internet, consistently staying in Alexa’s list of top websites for the countries they operate in
In this role, you’ll be responsible for developing mobile-first, responsive front ends that are used millions of times per day. We wrote our frontend from scratch in VueJS about 3 years ago, so you’ll be working with the latest technology instead of wrangling with decades-old spaghetti code.
A willingness to work in VueJS is fine – as long as you are willing to learn and have demonstrable experience in a similar frontend framework.
