Frontend Developer

Update (January 6, 2018): It is likely that we will proceed with one of the applicants we’ve received but you are still welcome to send in an application if you would like until we make our final decision, at which point this listing will be taken down.

Are you confident in your JavaScript, HTML, and CSS skills? Great! You might be a fit for this position. 🙂

Required attributes

  • Are confident you can convert designs/mockups into equivalent HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. This position involves working with our designer to do exactly that!
  • Are comfortable using git to clone the project and run it locally as per the instructions. You must be familiar with Github and know how to create branches so that you can submit pull requests for us to review.
  • Are able to work with the Vue.js framework (or are confident you can learn it quickly).
  • You’re self-taught and are constantly pushing yourself to expand your knowledge and skillset.
  • You are not intimidated by anything written above.
  • Able to commit at least 15 hours per week for the next 6 months or so. We do weekly video chats on Monday at 9am or 11am Pacific Time.
  • Are excited by what we’re creating.

Compensation

  • $52/hr in Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), or Monero (XMR) preferred (most of our donations are crypto). We can pay in USD if there is no other way.
  • Everyone who contributes meaningful work to the project will be added to the Group Income Developers group for 1 year following its launch, which will provide a mincome of some amount to its members. There will be around 7 to 10 reserved, lifetime* seats that will be given to the top contributors to Group Income as of its 1.0 launch. About 5 to 6 of these seats have already been locked in for existing contributors to date.

* A lifetime seat means that person cannot be voted out of the group.
