About Your Role:

We are looking for a Senior Front End Developer with a demonstrated track record of innovative thinking, technical excellence, and peer collaboration. You will work on the team responsible for improving and expanding the component-based framework upon which all our verticals are based. As such, you will influence technical direction for multiple teams, and serve as the subject-matter expert for shared functionality.

About Your Contributions:

  • Assess the needs of other development teams and craft solutions that can be implemented, extended, and referenced as examples.
  • Review code submissions from other teams with an eye towards maintaining a high-quality shared codebase.
  • Research new technologies to solve problems and improve existing systems.
  • Participate in conversations about the design and architecture of our web platform.

About You:

  • 4+ years in a front-end web development position
  • High levels of skill with HTML, CSS and Javascript
  • The ideal candidate will have experience working with a component-based front-end framework, particularly one with a server-side templating aspect (e.g., Apache Tiles, Vue+Nuxt, React+Next).  Candidates without this should have significant experience with at least one server-side templating language (e.g., JSP, FTL, Handlebars, ERB)
  • Familiarity with at least one server-side MVC framework (e.g., Spring, Django, Rails, Express)
  • A desire to build tools for other developers
  • Interest in designing/building a highly performant and robust web framework that is used to build websites visited by 90M+ people a month.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Information Technology, or a closely related technical field or foreign equivalent
