Frontend Developer

Job Description

We're looking for software engineers with a front-end JavaScript focus to help us build great
applications. Our engineers work in small cross-functional teams that emphasize iteration and
learning. It's a collaborative culture, with lots of pairing and discussion. We're working with
enterprise-scale customers to solve real business problems. Along the way, you'll get to work
with modern technologies and great people in a startup culture. 
If you'd like the chance to make an impact, we'd love to hear from you! 

The Gig


● Design and build our client-side web apps using Angular and related technologies

go

you're an expert

Abou ou
● You love to code. You understand basic design patterns, data structures, and algorithms
● You've got deep experience building web apps with modern JavaScript frameworks, 
preferably Angular, but you know that tech is dynamic so you’re not married to one

test frameworks. You understand asynchronous requests, asset pipelines, browser
rendering, and page load optimization
● You make the people around you better
● You're a good communicator, positive, with a bias for action


Our Radical Culture

 
Our culture is at the core of everything we do. We have fun, but we work hard. So, as we grow
we’re not only looking to hire the best and brightest, but we’re also looking for people that share
our values. This is the code we live by: 
● Think big. Do bigger. We think big ideas are meant to be pursued. So, we think critically
and have a bias for action and impact. We continually iterate to deliver smarter direction
and better software. 
● Be customer-inspired. We aim to over-deliver and delight by doing what’s best, not just
what’s expected. That’s why we make it a priority to understand how our customers
operate and the challenges that they face. 
● Partner. We build strong relationships by having a partnership mindset – internally and
externally. We go above and beyond to help our customers and one another succeed. 
● Thrive. We set our internal bar high so that we can bring enthusiasm, speed, and
innovation. We revere personal drive, growth, and balance. We celebrate successes, 
and, sometimes, we just celebrate.
