React is a library of components based on JavaScript and TypeScript, characterized by open-source code. Its application in the IT sphere simplifies the development and debugging of the user interface. This explains the demand for React in the development of mobile and single-page web applications.

The release, which was initially supervised by Facebook, took place in 2013. Today, React is actively curated by the community of React programmers. It should be noted that the Native framework, launched two years after the first release, quickly became the optimal tool in the field of mobile development for iOS and Android.

In job vacancies, a React Programmer is referred to as a React Developer or React-developer — an IT specialist who develops the client part of the user interface. They are not only fluent in the library components, but also have a perfect command of the tools that help optimize the performance of the application under development. An experienced React Developer can develop websites and create mobile and web applications using the React Native framework. Employers expect such a specialist to understand the principles of the layout (HTML5, CSS), JavaScript, jQuery, npm, ES6, WebPack, Redux, and Git.

Since React is written in JavaScript, considerable experience with this language is usually required. Another common requirement is at least an intermediate level of English, with developed listening comprehension. The applicant's ability to work effectively in a team will also be an advantage since the React developer cannot act alone. A significant plus is the presence of a portfolio. Regardless of the subject of the works presented in it, it will serve as an illustration of the experience and skills of the applicant.
