Challenge

Brief

Your challenge is to build out this job board using the GitHub Jobs API data and get it looking as close to the design as possible.

You can use any tools you like to help you complete the challenge. So if you've got something you'd like to practice, feel free to give it a go.

Your users should be able to:

  • View the optimal layout for each page depending on their device's screen size
  • See hover states for all interactive elements throughout the site
  • View all jobs currently live on the GitHub Jobs API
  • Be able to click a job from the index page so that they can read more information and apply for the job
  • Bonus: Have the correct color scheme chosen for them based on their computer preferences. Hint: Research prefers-color-scheme in CSS.

Download the project and go through the README.md file. This will provide further details about the project and help you get set up.

Getting started

  1. Download the starter code
  2. Set up the project with version control (e.g. Git)

  3. Read the README.md file and have a look around the project

  4. If you don't have Sketch, we provide a guide to easily import the Sketch file into Figma and Adobe XD

  5. Get colors, fonts, etc from the design system in the Sketch file

  6. Set up your project/file architecture however you want

  7. Start coding!

Ideas to test yourself

  • Write your styles using a pre-processor, such as Sass, Less, Stylus or go with a CSS-in-JS solution, like Styled Components

  • Train your eye for detail by getting your solution as close to the design as you can
