What is a React Developer

React, also referred to as ReactJS or react.js, is an open-source JavaScript library ecosystem for building user interfaces (UIs).

React Developers designs and builds UIs for apps and websites using React. They are a subgroup of Front-end Developers, and highly specialised.

They often work alongside other generalist Front-end Developers in order to build a fully functional website.

What should be included in a React Developer job description?

Much like other Front-end Developers, React Developers are responsible for the design and build of a website – as well as any ongoing maintenance or upgrades – but they do so using React.

  • Identify web-based user interactions
  • Develop, build, and implement UI components
  • Troubleshoot interface software
  • Test codes and UIs prior to site launch
  • Monitor front-end performance
  • Create and update any technical documentation required
  • Stay up-to-date on latest developments within the field

  • In-depth knowledge of web technologies, in particular: JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and front-end languages
