The JavaScript SDK (JSS) team at Sitecore is expanding, and we are looking for a Full-stack JavaScript developer to join our team.

Position Summary:

Our team’s SDK provides a TypeScript library that interacts with Sitecore’s REST and GraphQL APIs, enabling our customers to use JavaScript frameworks for building their web apps' front-ends. Our SDK supports JavaScript frameworks that run server-side in a Node context (Next.js, React, Angular, Vue). Next.js is our latest addition and we are really excited about Sitecore’s move into Jamstack architecture. Since our SDK is used by developers, our work is split between adding business-driven capabilities and improving developer experience. So, we are looking for someone who will enjoy building tools for both, business users and developers. (Learn more about our SDK at
