What you will do:

  • Support sales and project team to estimate and scope work for large applications.
  • Estimate JavaScript work and modularize goals into clearly defined, executable tasks.
  • Skillfully connect engineering deliverables to client business objectives.
  • Ultimately you will make the web better by finely crafting apps, and tools that reach millions of online visitors every day.

About you:

  • You have a strong experience with web technologies, the JavaScript language and its ecosystem.
  • You love building scalable web-based JavaScript applications with ES6+, React, Next.js and Node.
  • You are well-versed with the architectural concepts behind React - state and data management, JSX, creating a componentized system, and JavaScript tooling.
  • You have experience working with headless CMS, such as Sanity and WordPress.
  • You are knowledgeable of PHP in WordPress as a platform, including custom post types, taxonomies, and use of WordPress beyond typical “blog” use cases.
  • You have experience leading teams and coaching other engineers.
  • You have a code portfolio of real-world samples. Link us to your best work on GitHub and you’ll never have to do any live coding or whiteboard testing!
  • You prefer to work fully remote and are effectively engaging in a distributed team from the location of your choosing.

Benefits of interest:

  • Multiple paid time off programs, including accrued PTO, parental leave, bereavement leave, and company holidays – including an all-company break from Christmas Eve to New Years Day.
  • Health, dental, and life insurance programs (available for United States team members).
  • Retirement contribution programs (currently available in the U.S. and U.K.).
  • Flexible and alternate schedule programs - including options for 4-day work week (Monday-Thursday) configurations.
  • $3,000 USD accrued annually in professional development budget for you to spend on conferences, training, or to buy back time for programs like independent study.
