Sr. Frontend Developer


We are looking for an experienced front-end web developer to work with our client’s e-commerce business. The ideal candidate would have experience working closely with designers and large frontend codebases (sass, JS frameworks, package managers). We are looking for someone who is self-motivated and is able to work with a team early on in a project, plan and identify requirements, see a project through to completion, and mentor junior members of the team along the way.


About thelab

We’re an agency of makers with deep expertise in solving creative and technology challenges. Our focus is on making better work to help brands work better.

Oh, and we host a mean barbecue too.


We will be

An awesome place for you to grow and learn. We stay open-minded about ideas and make sure our technology is always up-to-date because we believe the best work gets made when we evolve our skills together. thelab is large enough to get an amazing variety of work but small enough to stay flexible and work with smaller brands and startups too—we even have a few products of our own. You’ll work on a lot of different kinds of projects, and you’ll do it with reasonable timelines, surrounded by an inclusive community who wants to see you succeed (no brogrammers, please!). And you’ll generally finish your day with plenty of time left over to meet your friends for a drink—or grab one with your new team.
