Glassdoor is looking for a talented Sr. Front End Engineer to help take our product to the next level. This is your chance to share your work with a worldwide community of over 40 million members in 190 countries.


As a Senior Front-End Engineer, you will play a central role in the design, development, and delivery of user-facing features for Glassdoor’s web products.

You should have solid experience building dynamic web pages using HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, jQuery, Java/JSP.  Knowledge of Node and ReactJS will help us move our front-end to its next phase.
