    Toptal's Talent Activation Team is looking for a great frontend developer.

    If you love and are good at:

    • JavaScript and ES6
    • React
    • HTML and CSS
    • Git and Shell

    we would like to talk to you.

    Our Team develops the application wherein a brand new Toptal member sets up her or his profile and gets active in the Toptal Platform — hence the name Activation. The app handles information ranging from name and profile photo to far more complex data such as skillset, portfolio, geographic location, local times across the world, and payment details.

    This is an opportunity to work on a new, high-impact application, using state-of-the-art technologies alongside an excellent and friendly team.

    We also expect to support the current Talent application with code written using SASS, Backbone, and Rails. On the brighter side, that application is very stable and we've been able to dedicate more than 80% of our time to the new one.

    Toptal's Talent Activation Team is organized using Agile best practices. We are a small, focused, and self-contained team with a Scrum Master, a dedicated QA Engineer, a Designer, and a Product Manager. Expect to make meaningful contributions from early on, and to have continuous learning opportunities, both technical and interpersonal.  As with any other position at Toptal, we offer flexible working hours and location independence. We have a daily stand-up at 10:00 AM GMT-3.
