Who Is AppSumo

AppSumo was started in 2011 by serial online entrepreneur Noah Kagan. The idea was simple: the tools you need to run your business shouldn’t put you out of business. Today, the AppSumo team has grown and includes some of the best talent from Facebook, Microsoft, and Bloomberg (to name a few). 

Our mission, however, remains the same. To date, we’ve partnered with over 1,000 startups to bring our community the absolute best deals on software. We’ve partnered with companies like MailChimp, Evernote, and Dropbox — startups that have gone on to become household names in software.

With hundreds of successful product launches and over a million entrepreneurs served, we’re looking to take AppSumo to the next level. 

That’s where you, the Senior Front End Engineer comes in.


About This Role

As a Sr. Front End Web Developer, you will be in charge of translating UI/UX design wireframes to actual code that will produce visual elements of our site. You will work closely with the design and engineering teams to bridge the gap between graphic design and technical implementation, defining both how the application looks and works. Primarily, this role is about utilizing a variety of programming languages in order to create user-friendly web pages. 

We’re looking for someone who is motivated to combine the art of design with the art of programming and is excited by the prospect of working on a customer facing product and seeing their code impact millions of users within days, not months. Someone who, if given the option, would take a task and run with it, rather than being handheld throughout the process.

On a typical day, you would focus on designing UI/UX prototypes, testing and tweaking current features, and implementing new user-facing features. In the first three months of this role, success means building reusable code and libraries for future use, ensuring the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs, and optimizing applications for maximum speed and scalability.

We rebuilt our platform last year with an updated tech stack that includes Vue.js, Python, Javascript, Node, AWS, Docker, Linux, and ElasticSearch. We run continuous integration and deployment using Atlassian Tools (Jira and Confluence), redis, celery, nginx, Postgresql, and git.

The front end engineer will utilize software such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to create and edit designs. For implementation, our front end stack consists of Javascript, HTML, CSS, and jQuery. 

Our ideal candidate has 5-8 years of front end web development engineering experience (familiarity with the above frameworks is a plus but we’re happy to train you). Expertise in ecommerce or SaaS is a plus.


Pay & Benefits

We provide a competitive compensation package. In addition, we offer paid lunches every day, a stocked fridge, any snacks you want, and two all-expenses paid company trips with the team. (You can check them out here.) You’ll be equipped with a brand-new computer, monitor, standing desk and any other gear you need to feel productive. Not to mention, we also have in-office massages weekly. Oh, and you can bring your dog to work. We love your dog :)

At AppSumo, we don’t believe in benchwarmers or clockwatchers: we treat all of our teammates like adults and trust that when you have something to do, you’ll get it done. If you need to run an errand, hit the gym, or meet a friend for lunch you’re encouraged to do so. You can work from home as often as you need to, and you’ll have unlimited vacation days to go on adventures. (Everyone says it, but we mean it: Take as much time as you want.)

We’re committed to creating a diverse, supportive, and collaborative working environment - every person we bring onto the team helps cultivate a culture that we’re proud of.

Feeling up to the task? Let’s do this :)
