Martin Smit, Cape Town-based front-end dev. Passionate about JavaScript. Seeking new challenges

South Africa

What I'm looking for

I am looking for an opportunity to apply my expertise and make a positive impact on projects. I have a strong foundation in JavaScript and am eager to continue improving my skills in this area. Additionally, I am open to learning new technologies, such as React and TypeScript, and am always looking for opportunities to grow and expand my knowledge.

With over 8 years of experience in the e-commerce and travel industry, I am a highly driven and detail-oriented professional with a passion for front-end development. I have honed my skills in technologies such as JavaScript, Vue.js, PHP, SCSS, and HTML, and have applied best practices to create modern and e-commerce stores for some of the biggest brands in South Africa.

In my current role, I am responsible for improving the front-end architecture and user experience implementation for multiple brands, allowing us to efficiently roll out various white-label products. Additionally, I take pride in mentoring junior developers and helping them to grow their skills and careers.

I am now seeking a new challenge where I can further grow and develop my skills, while also bringing value and expertise to the team.
