  • Experience with popular React.js workflows (such as Redux, Hooks or the Context API) and data structure libraries such as Immutable.js.
  • Experience with commonly used front-end development tools such as Babel, Webpack, NPM, etc.
  • Fluency using code versioning tools such as Git, SVN or Bitbucket and organisational tools such as Trello or Jira.
  • Familiarity with cloud architecture and microservices with AWS, GCP or Azure is a plus.
