Actual Size is looking for a local or remote full-stack Laravel developer, with enough JS/React/Node experience to be dangerous.

You’d help us support an existing education platform, implementing bug fixes and minor features, and building out APIs to help interact with external systems.

Your Responsibilities

  • Work closely with our designers, project manager/producer, and the technology director.
  • Address incoming issues and feature requests.
  • Optimize platforms for responsiveness and speed.
  • Ensure projects meet established accessibility guidelines.
  • Build reusable code and libraries for use now and in the future.
  • Document code in-line and through READMEs and Wikis.
  • Participate in code reviews and provide thoughtful & constructive feedback to other team members.

About You

  • Great at documentation — all your code is thoroughly commented and you make it easy for other developers to jump in when needed. You always make sure your code and instruction works before handing it off. You ❤️ READMEs.
  • Excellent communicator — you can’t live without Slack, but you’re also happy to jump on a call every once in a while. When issues arise, you flag them early and ask for help.
  • Craftsman — you take great pride in the quality of your work and appreciate the art and elegance of well-written code. Ensuring your workflows are efficient and magical is a pastime, and you’ve spent an embarrassing amount of hours styling your terminal. You keep up to date on modern tools, practices, and news in and around the web development world.
  • Team player & solo artist — you’re equally happy working on a team as you are on your own. You don’t take constructive criticism personally, and are always trying to learn and grow. You can break large tasks apart into smaller ones, and pace yourself to complete them.
  • Skillful — you’re experienced with a lot of the following: JavaScript/TypeScript, React, Node.js, WordPress, Laravel, Gatsby, Styled Components/Emotion, CSS, APIs, GraphQL, HTML Canvas, Lottie, Konva/P5.js/Anime/React Spring/Framer Motion, Three.js, CI/CD, Sketch/Illustrator, GCP/AWS/Heroku/DigitalOcean, Docker.
