The standard Front-End stack for the company is React with Redux with JavaScript written exclusively in ES6+ (with heavy use of ES7) via Babel.

It's not just about JavaScript though and as the Lead for the Front End you will need a deep knowledge of modern approaches and best practices in HTML/CSS although Styled-components you can learn on the job with the team.

There is more to this company than good tech and interesting projects.
