React web/mobile developer (full-time)

Overview

Mentor Creative Group is a unique creative design agency located in Fremont, Seattle. We take on projects ranging from web/mobile design and development, to branding, to user research. Our clients run the gamut from small startup to global corporations. But most importantly, we are a creative incubator and a place for continuous professional development. Mentor is an environment where designers and developers can experiment, learn, and push themselves. We do this by creating multi-disciplinary product teams and relying on each member’s knowledge to not only enrich the project, but to teach each other. The process creates professional growth and outstanding products.

We’re looking for a full-time React.js Full-Stack Developer. We want someone who is both a great developer and a great person. As a member of our team, you will contribute to a variety of projects that range from product upkeep to entire front-end overhauls and from-scratch product development.

We’re a modern development shop that is constantly adding experience with new frameworks, platforms and tools to our portfolio. Right now we are focused on growing our React and React Native capabilities. We understand that great engineers like to use new and emerging tools, and will enable you to continue your education and experimentation with new technologies.

We are an Agile organization, and we use Scrum and Kanban to manage our projects – which one we use depends on the context of the client and the project. Internally, we use Google Apps, Asana, Dropbox, and Slack.
