Q: Why did the React class component feel relieved?

A: Because it was now off the hook

Now that we've got your attention ... let's face it, there are a lot of ugly websites out there. We mean ... A. Lot.

Lee Enterprises means to change that, at least on the new products and sites we are creating.

We are developing a new product and we don't want ugly. We want beautiful. And functional.

That's where you come in.

We are expanding our award-winning development staff, and we are looking for top-notch UI developers. We use a ReactJS framework with the front end connecting to the AWS-hosted MySQL backend through APIs that is data heavy in design. You'll be adding features and tweaking already developed code.

Working with other developers, designers and product managers, you'll deliver high quality, highly useable experiences and help build brand consistency. Your work will have a direct impact on users and will be deployed across more than 75+ markets. Along the way, you'll be working on other industry-changing products in the pipeline.

To get us across the finish line, you'll work to understand the UI requirements; design and support public-facing UI components; configure and deploy any needed server-level tools as well as monitor and manage front-end performance, documenting how it all works.

Sound fun?

If you have more than three (3) years of experience with HTML5; CSS3, JavaScript, ReactJS and NodeJS, read on.

We're looking for developers with:

• Excellent written and verbal communication skills
• Experience building ReactJS user-facing features
• Building reusable components and front-end libraries for future use
• Translating designs and wireframes into high-quality, nimble code
• Experience with RESTful APIs
• Knowledge of modern authorization mechanisms, such as JWT
• Familiarity with front-end development tools such as Babel, Webpack and NPM
• Experience building scalable high traffic front-end applications
• Experience deploying applications on Amazon Web Services
• Ability to understand business requirements and translate them into technical requirements

If this sounds like you, we need to talk.

Here's what we offer:

• Fully remote position
• Generous vacation and time away policy
• Very competitive salary
• Growth and advancement opportunities
• A great team to work with

At Lee Enterprises, we look beyond a résumé and look at the person. We can't wait to meet you.
