Hi there! Let's make this personal. My name is Xavier Armand and I am the co-founder and creative director of The Vaan Group (www.vaangroup.com): a remote UX design and engineering agency with headquarters in NYC. We’re looking to hire an front-end engineer to join our team.

Our clients range from large e-commerce enterprises (>$100M per year) to successful mid-stage ($1M - $50M per year) direct to consumer e-commerce brands (these are the brands you’d be working with). You can see the full range client work/portfolio at our website and here are some long form articles that explain the details of some recent projects: E-commerce search (& destroy) (https://medium.com/@x_armand/e-commerce-search-destroy-a72ab421f55a) as well as UX Audit Reports: Putting Beauty In The Eye of the User (https://goo.gl/b7TKYT)

We’re a realistic group, not looking for rockstar ninja wizards. Our team resides (or is working from) New York City, Poland, Germany, Spain, and Norway. Every 3-4 months we have team meet ups.

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!
