Govchain is looking for skilled React JS developer to join our development team. You'll be using your technical knowledge to solve real customer problems on a product used by thousands of South African entrepreneurs.

  • Fixing bugs fast and taking your time to solve hard problems well.
  • Keeping the end user as the primary focus in all your decisions.
  • Working with customer support to identify opportunities to better the user experience.

What you should have

  • 2+ years practical experience writing JavaScript.
  • 1+ years experience with React.
  • Experience with testing frameworks (Jest, Enzyme, React Testing Library).
  • Strong communication and problem-solving skills
  • Experience with specs, able to estimate & meet deadlines.
  • Able to work remotely with periodic meetups & workdays.
  • Strong UX skills and an interest in sweating the small stuff (bonus).
