Apply Now

Hi there! First and foremost, I hope you're well in the face of coronavirus. That said, let's make this personal. My name is Xavier Armand and I am the co-founder of The Vaan Group (www.vaangroup.com): a fully remote UX design and engineering agency with headquarters in NYC. We’re looking to hire a front-end web developer to work on e-commerce projects. 

We believe awesome technology powers the best brands. So we build it. Our technology becomes the foundation upon which businesses scale their operations, escalate their marketing efforts and grow their sales. Most of the time we're building e-commerce engines. Other times we're architecting software. It's always all digital.

Our clients range from large e-commerce enterprises (>$100M per year) to successful mid-stage ($1M - $20M per year) direct to consumer e-commerce brands. You can see the full range client work/portfolio at our website. 

We’re a realistic group, not looking for rockstar ninja wizards. Our team resides (or is working from) New York City, Warsaw, Lisbon, The Netherlands, Brazil, Dominican Republic, and Norway. We do regular team meets up all over the world.

We're looking for an experienced front-end developer to join our team. Typical work would include:
  • Turning web designs in Figma and Sketch into functioning websites and web apps (attention to pixel perfect detail is important)
  • Working with the interaction designers to developer custom animations and experiences
  • Implementing a headless architecture using ZeitHQ and Elliot.store
  • Custom theme design on Shopify Plus
A perfect candidate has well-formed opinions, great discipline, naturally established work habits, and takes delight in their work.

A great quote about what we're looking for from people who have been managing remote teams longer than us:

"Everyone has to be an A-player. Remote team members are used to four to six hours of focused, uninterrupted work every day. You have to be able to get through problems on your own and be productive without asking for help. There’s no substitute for skill and experience in those cases."

We have specific work to be done so can hire quickly. Shopify experience optional but a plus!
