We are looking for a front-end web developer who is motivated to combine the art of design with the art of programming. Responsibilities will include translation of UI/UX design wireframes to code, building the visual elements of the application.

Why do top Front-end experts join Toptal?

Davor Grubelić

Full Stack JavaScript Engineer
Osijek, Croatia

Davor is a full stack JavaScript engineer who uses Node.js and Angular as his primary technology stack. With eight years of experience in web development, he has worked on a large number of projects, from websites to large ERP applications. In past years, he has worked as a CTO and front-end developer for a dairy management startup. Currently, he works as a senior mobile developer using the React Native platform.

As a platform, Toptal has helped me find new projects without having to spend time and energy. It allows me to focus on what is most important for my clients - product and project development. As a community, Toptal is a constant source of knowledge and new opportunities for me to grow as a developer, all while providing me with the ability to have flexible work hours and location. It truly is a community for the future.

Alejandro Hernandez

JavaScript and React.js Developer
Córdoba, Argentina

Alejandro has worked for over a decade with leading software companies of all sizes from around the globe. Currently, he enjoys working as a technical lead on React.js projects at Toptal, where his deep understanding of architecture and theory is most impactful. In his free time, he organizes Toptal community events and is the Toptal Academy React.js Course Professor, which over 200 community members have taken.

Part of engaging with any new technology is the uncertainty of finding a job that requires you to use what you've learned. Thanks to Toptal, I've had a steady stream of React.js projects with clients from the very beginning. My Toptal clients are always pushing the limits of the technology to give their users the best user experience in their markets.

Rogério Araújo

Full Stack Developer
Goiânia, Brazil

Rogério is a full stack developer with 15 years of experience with software development and architecture. He has worked on several projects for clients in Brazil and globally. His projects have included mobile, web, and desktop apps, as well as enterprise search applications.

Toptal has created an amazing community of React.js developers, and all of us are extremely passionate about helping each other solve any problem. For me, the best part so far has been that, after learning React.js and starting to engage on the technology with other community members, I quickly got two React.js jobs in less than one month, and both were great experiences.

By joining Toptal, you’ll have full flexibility over which projects you choose and when you want to work.

Aside from enjoying the benefits of our amazing community, you’ll have full flexibility to accept or reject projects as you prefer. Whether you prefer to work full-time at Toptal or you’d rather just take on occasional hourly jobs, the choice is yours.
