OkCupid is looking to hire a Senior Software Engineer for our Web team!

What’s it like to be a Web Engineer at OkCupid

The OkCupid Web Team is a nimble team of 5, building features that help connect millions of users every day. Because our team size is so small, each of us has full ownership of features from ideation to deployment. We work closely with other engineering and product teams across the company to figure out the best ways to help people find meaningful relationships.

As the sixth member of our team, you will help us build beautiful and performant user interfaces across desktop and mobile web, and will support and extend our API to power new features across all clients.

Some cool things the web team has done this year:

  • Implemented the next generation of OkCupid’s API, a Node-based GraphQL system utilizing the Apollo platform
  • Built out our CI/CD pipeline to automate deployments across our different repositories
  • Created a new system for internationalizing questions. Should “Are you willing to pay extra for guac?” be shown to everyone in the world? We don’t think so either

What you’ll be doing:

  • Building interactive and intuitive UIs in React that connect millions of users
  • Extending our API to support new web and mobile client features
  • Continually improving our developer experience and tech stack using 20% flexible time
  • Participating in the conceptualization and execution of product features
  • Contributing to the growth and success of other members of the team through code review, documentation, and mentoring

You may be a fit for this role if you:

  • Have 4+ years’ experience designing and building software
  • Enjoy building UIs with ES6, React, and Sass
  • Have a strong grasp of modern JavaScript and CSS
  • Have a high bar for clean, readable and testable code
  • Care deeply about the experience of our users
  • Have experience doing one of:
    • Building an API that services millions of users
    • Developing mobile web applications that are performant and accessible
    • Internationalizing web applications

Job Perks:

  • Competitive salary and full benefits, including Medical, Dental, Vision
  • 401k with 100% matching contributions up to 10% of your salary
  • Paid attendance to conferences
  • Professional growth stipend
  • Workstation and tools of your choice
