Wistia is looking for a senior frontend engineer to lead our New User Experience Team.
This role is a great opportunity to work closely with product managers, designers, and marketers to create a beautiful, informative, compelling, responsive, and accessible storefront experience to drive interest in the product, generate leads, embody Wistia’s core values and build lasting affinity for the Wistia brand. This team isn’t just about working with the latest framework or building components for others, it’s a true partnership across the business to support the brand and acquire, onboard, and educate new customers.
We’re a diverse and inclusive team composed of engineers, product managers and designers. We’re technology-minded, but customer focused, always aiming to deliver the highest-impact features that prioritize the long-term success of the product.
You will fit in great on this team if you:
Love building beautiful web sites more than building full-scale products.
Appreciate doing mostly frontend development.
Are interested in leading a team in the short-medium term.
Have a user-centric mindset for progressive enhancement, performance, and accessibility
Enjoy working with design systems and highly value design-developer collaboration
Value pragmatism more than perfection.
Value a team that tries to leave things better than you found them, and you do your part, too!
We’re looking for someone who:
Has seen the good, the bad, the ugly, and the just plain quirky of the internet.
Has experience working on cross-functional product teams.
Enjoys working with others to solve not just technical, but people, design, and product challenges.
Has a history of positive cross-functional working relationships with marketers
Likes to help other engineers grow.
We work hard to ensure Wistia is an inclusive and diverse place where everyone feels happy, fulfilled, respected, comfortable, and welcome.
