Jilano2955317dI don't see how it would hurt, as long as you keep learning/practicing on your own time.
If a new recruiter were to ask you why you took this job for X months/years, just tell them the truth, i.e. you couldn't find an interesting position at the time and thought it would still allow you to learn a lot and improve your skills as developers.
PS: Why are you looking for that kind of job when you're a rocket surgeon?
It's a dead end here. It's pretty much the banishment room for failed devs they can't fire for whatever reason.
