You'll need a solid grasp of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Knowledge of a CSS preprocessor like Less or Sass would be a huge benefit. Knowledge of a JavaScript framework like React, Angular, or Ember would also be a huge help.

Thank you! I am okay with the basic 3 languages but as I know I need more knowledge to start learning Sass :( I guess there's still a lot to learn until my first job. ^^

Where are you finding jobs that only have these requirements?

What do you think, what else could help me at work?
