We are 100% Remote

As a 100% remote company, we are set up to provide the best possible environment for engineering. The less time developers spend dealing with cumbersome processes, inefficient systems, and commuting, the more time they have to solve problems and make an impact. We pass almost all of The Joel Test (fix only high-priority bugs before writing new code), use continuous deployment (code goes straight to production after each merge), and are in the process of adopting mobx-state-tree with React. Strong engineering is a key part of our business strategy -- it lets us build best-in-class design tools faster than our larger competitors.

The Role

We are seeking an ambitious and nice senior front-end engineer who shares our passion for building a great software company. This is a unique opportunity to have a major impact on our engineering team’s growth (we are about ten strong right now) by helping us continually raise the bar. You will be expected to collaborate with other engineers to solve complex technical problems and push us to deliver higher quality code at an ever-increasing rate. We firmly believe in the power of solid architecture, code design, and simplicity over brute force, which is why we do our best to hire 10x senior engineers. If you are seeking an environment where you get to do meaningful work with other great engineers, then we want to hear from you.

Responsibilities

  • Write and maintain front-end JavaScript code as part of a mobile-first web application, including UI components and state management logic.
  • Make decisions about code design, architecture, and refactoring to balance technical debt against delivering functionality.
  • Plan and lead testing for complex projects.
  • Review code and mentor other engineers.
  • Provide time estimates and participate in agile development.
  • Review specifications and work with PMs to implement lean methodology.

Required Qualifications

  • Experience implementing and testing advanced JavaScript code on a team as part of a production web or mobile application
  • Practical experience with MV* architecture (such as Backbone, Vue, React + Redux/Mobx, etc.), unidirectional data flow, and minimal class/object interfaces
  • Spatial/geometric reasoning ability -- for rendering, animation, and image manipulation
  • Ability to quickly understand and work with unfamiliar complex code
  • Pro-active and clear communication is essential for this remote work position

Benefits

  • Highly competitive compensation package 
  • Benefits include comprehensive medical, dental, and vision insurance, and 401K with 4% company match 
  • A culture that promotes a healthy work-life balance including a flexible PTO plan
  • This position is 100% remote

The Interview Process

The goal of our interview process is to identify people who will be a good fit for our company and are talented, ambitious engineers. Because you will be working remotely, all of our interviews are done remotely. 

During the interview process, you will:

  • Speak to a member of our talent acquisition team which will be mostly an experience and values/culture fit assessment
  • Complete a shorter coding task that includes questions in Javascript and focuses on applying general programming concepts (like concurrency and good code structure) in realistic scenarios
  • Speak with a Senior/Lead engineer
  • Complete a more complex technical challenge that is intended to emulate your actual work environment
  • Speak with our VP of engineering and other executives.
