Aurora Labs is the creator of Aurora, an Ethereum scaling solution built on the next-generation NEAR protocol. Our aim is to provide accessibility to the world-changing benefits of blockchain technology, through great user experience!
We're looking for someone with very strong front-end skills who is an expert in React, with experience in web3 a plus; someone who wants to work in an early stage start-up and is motivated at the prospect of building something new from the ground up. More important than specific technical skills though is that you're a strong problem solver who loves to learn — we're not experts in everything and we don't expect you to be either.
You will work closely with our UI designer and product manager. You will bridge the gap between graphical design and technical implementation, taking an active role on both sides and defining how our applications look as well as how they work. Responsibilities will include translating wireframes and designs to actual code.
You might not call yourself a designer, but you know great UI design when you see it and you know when something isn't up to par. Details matter to you, and if the text in a button is off-center by a pixel you will figure out why.
Your responsibilities include:
- Developing new user-facing features
- Building reusable code and libraries for future use
- Ensuring the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs
- Optimizing applications for maximum speed and scalability
- Translating design in Figma and/or Sketch to reusable components
- Collaborating with other team members and stakeholders
Here are some of the technologies we work with:
- Tailwind CSS
If you'd be interested in exploring this opportunity, please apply with a cover letter and CV. We'd love to hear from you!
