01About the Team

You'll also be working across a large variety of problems and taking ownership over a significant area of our product.

03What we think you'll need to be great at this job...

  • A love of great products and product design – if the code you ship needs to be maintainable AND delightful for customers to use, we want to speak to you.
  • Past experience of planning, executing, and delivering projects with multiple engineers in an agile environment. Note the use of a lowercase 'a' in 'agile' – we're pragmatic, and it would be pretty awesome if you are too.
  • 5+ years of experience working across the full-stack. You don't need to have mastered any one side, but understanding a spectrum of technologies at varying degrees of expertise is important.
  • 3+ years of experience writing client side web code utilizing React, Ember, Vue or similar. (We use React, Redux and Styled Components for our web app).
  • Experience building server-side applications utilizing NodeJS, Ruby, Python or similar and you're familiar with one of the popular web frameworks in those languages (Express, Rails, Flask).
  • You might have dabbled in some functional code, but if you haven't that's ok as well.
  • Experience working closely with analytics products like Looker, Amplitude is a nice to have, but not necessary.

 

04This is what you'll be doing...

  • Working across our flagship web product, helping to write features that drive activation, engagement, and retention. Basically, you'll be writing software that sells itself.
  • Collaborating closely with a product manager to plan, execute, and ship projects critical to the success of the business. Once it ships, you'll pay close attention to the impact of the work, and iterate towards a successful outcome.
  • Experimenting. Owning the A/B testing process, associated metrics for success and helping shape the experiments that will drive the business forward.
  • Providing technical leadership to a team of cross functional engineers and be accountable for the technical decision making for your team.
