  • Sass (CSS Compiler)
  • Javascript (Outside of jQuery – Understanding how plain vanilla javascript works)

We are looking for someone that has the capacity to also learn Vue.js. Vue.js isn’t a far step from HTML/CSS/Javascript, so it shouldn’t be a huge learning curve. We also expect this person to eventually manage our APIs, so they will need to learn Larvel / Lumen for this.
