Are you a kick-ass FED tired of rushing through client work, instead yearning to dive deeper into a smaller number of projects? Do animations, interactions, and user experiences delight you? Are you disciplined enough to work in sprints, but also mature enough to work independently?
Undefined LLC is hiring a full-time FED to work on customer-facing and internal websites and web applications. Say goodbye to the agency or freelance rat race - you’ll be working exclusively on a small number of company-led projects and initiatives.
So what types of projects will you be working on?
- A custom e-commerce site built in React and Next, powered on the back-end by Firebase and WordPress
- A custom admin dashboard for a native app with more than 250,000 user accounts and 5,000 daily users, built in React and Next, and powered by Firebase
- A shopify e-commerce site with a custom theme built on Shopify’s themekit and React
- An app microsite built in React and Next, powered by Firebase
- Various landing pages and microsites generally built in React and Next, powered by Firebase and/or WordPress as a CMS
- Internal reporting and communication tools that may need some FED love
The Daily Grind
What’s a typical day for a FED? We work in sprints; so, you’ll be in daily communication with your dev team members and leadership. But we also work like animals; so, you’ll be free to focus on getting your work done. Your week will begin with a Sprint Planning Meeting, you’ll have daily stand-ups during the week, and it will end on Friday with a Sprint Review.
Though most of your time during the week will be working on tasks and bugs, you’ll have the opportunity to step up regularly (if that’s your thing) and be involved in higher-level design and direction decisions. We say “if that’s your thing” because some people love that, others don’t. And we want you focused mostly on what you love.
But What Am I Really Doing?
Sometimes, you’ll have an entire Sketch design and you’ll be building out the FED. Other times, you’ll have the basic design requirements (fonts, colors, etc) and some functionality requirements (credit card form, shipping address), and you’ll design and build the page or component in browser.
You’ll also handle FED for A/B tests like changing button colors or page layouts. Or we’ll need some animation on a page, like firing off confetti when a form is submitted. That’s your area too.
Hey - we just added some new functionality to how subscriptions are set up or we’re building out the functionality to export customer lists from our admin portal. You’ll FED those components, and also bug fix them should something break or not work as expected.
Our Tech Stack
You must know React. We use React heavily in our front end development. You must also be great - not good, great - with CSS, SCSS, or some similar styling. We currently use SCSS modules in React, so you should be comfortable with SCSS even if you want to convince us that something better exists.
You must also have a great - not good, great - eye for CSS animations, timings, transitions...everything animated in the browser. If we (or you) get a crazy idea to animate a user interaction or drop in a little delighter, you’ll be the one to pull it off.
Experience with Firebase, WordPress, and/or Shopify is a plus. And if you use After Effects or Lottie to blow peoples’ minds, we want to know (and see it).
What You Need To Qualify

- A portfolio and/or repo of actual work experience
