Providing a great web user experience is crucial to us, and we’re always looking for talented front-end web developers to help us reach the next level.

By joining our company, you’ll get the opportunity to work on many of our projects with a team of highly skilled front-end experts from around the world. At Toptal, we push the boundaries of web interfaces every single day, and we’d love for you to help us take this even further. The bulk of the work we do is pure front-end development, but some back-end skills will help you.

We don’t cut corners, and we don’t make compromises—we create beautifully designed web apps that are polished, fast, well-tested, and a joy to use.

  • As a true player, you continuously improve your team’s processes, brainstorm ideas, and communicate your status and progress.
  • Mentor other people, provide feedback, and continuously improve yourself.

We are expecting from you to:

  • Have 5+ years of front-end web development experience—preference given to candidates who have experience with large applications of some scale.
  • Be proficient in JavaScript, CSS3, and HTML5 is a must. Experience with React, Backbone, TypeScript is preferred.
  • Have experience with responsive designs.
  • Have experience developing within a web framework for backend—Ruby on Rails is a plus.
