  • Office and home office perks!
  • Fantastic opportunity for an experienced, mid-level, front-end programmer. Our stack: React, Python/Django, Postgres on AWS. We are looking for very strong front-end React.js skills. Your primary focus will be on developing user interface components and implementing them following well-known React.js workflows (such as Flux or Redux). You will ensure that these components and the overall application are robust and easy to maintain. You will coordinate with the rest of the team working on multiple layers of the infrastructure. Therefore, a commitment to collaborative problem solving, sophisticated design, and quality product is important.

    Who You Are

    • If you are somebody who identifies with these attributes, abilities, and experiences, you're likely a great fit:
    • Shared vision - you are inspired by our team charter and envision an opportunity to contribute to it
    • Experienced - have 5+ recent years of frontend development work and a great portfolio
    • Frontend focus - identify as a frontend dev who also has some backend skills
    • Independent - find high-value things to do and do them; are not paralyzed without guidance; can work without a project manager
    • Collaborative - give and take criticism and praise well, work with your team as a whole
    • Systems thinker - consider broad architectural implications in solutions
    • Distributed - comfortable building long-distance relationships with distributed team members; are a proactive collaborator

    • Explorative - try new things; track the state of the art; are self-motivated to try new experiments

    What you'll own

    This is a standard software development job, so all the usual duties apply: write code, test code, review code, do tickets, occasional meetings for requirements (we keep it really light), and provide input on new product specifications. The basic job is: develop user-facing features, build reusable components and front-end libraries, translate designs and wireframes into high quality code, repeat. Your familiarity with RESTful APIs and code versioning tools - particularly Git will be crucial! Demonstrated ability to optimize components for maximum performance across a vast array of web-capable devices and browsers will also be a necessity in this position.

    Experience you'll need

    • At least 3 years of commercial (read: daily, hands-in-the-code on platforms with thousands of users) experience developing in React.js.
    • A strong understanding of user research and human-centered design
    • An analytical approach to testing new features
    • Strong communication skills. Demonstrated ability to speak on a technical level and communicate clearly with team members
    • BS degree in Computer Science required. And while a Master’s degree is not required, appropriate and high-level work history that can map over to Master’s level work is
