JOB DETAILS
 

Curious about what its like to work at the worlds number 1 discovery platform as an Internal Application Developer? Were glad you asked!

You will be part of a team of Swiss Army Knives who take on numerous, diverse challenges to help teams across the enterprise. While you should be comfortable working with the BE components of a project (service layer logic, SQL queries, etc) the focus of this position is on crafting the FE pieces of our deliverables: overall site design, React components, highly interactive forms with Vanilla JS, & Chrome extensions that perform extensive DOM manipulation to provide data & simulate functionality of other products. 

This is a great opportunity for someone who wants a diverse technical experience that also embraces the human factors side of making tools that people depend on every day. We're looking for the person who can take a half-formed idea, turn it into a well-considered spec, & turn that spec into reality, primarily building the front-end (and occasionally working on the back-end components) to produce the features that empower & delight our customers.

In this job you will:

  • Function as a Customer Whisperer, understanding the needs of internal users both spoken & unspoken, divining their deepest, darkest wishes, & intuiting their future needs
  • Create beautiful, elegant sites & tools that internal customers depend on & love to use.
  • Iterate solutions as the needs of the enterprise change & grow over time
  • Produce clean, performant & maintainable code
  • Work with a high degree of freedom & be comfortable executing projects from start to finish.
  • Utilize best practices in front end design
  • Craft browser extensions that provide just-in-time information & functionality
  • Leverage internal & external APIs to combine data & update internal & external systems
  • Ensure reliability of delivered code with liberal use of various testing frameworks

About you:

  • 3-5 years of practical experience working as a full-stack developer; if you're just out of code school, this isn't the right opportunity.
  • Experience with one or more MVC frameworks (Grails, Rails, Django, Spring, etc.), knowing how to leverage framework time-savers as well as code custom service-layer logic
  • Experience designing & implementing user interfaces, leveraging Javascript & Javascript libraries (React, Vue, jQuery, lodash, etc.) & CSS frameworks (Bootstrap, etc.) 
  • Experience developing with Java & object oriented programming
  • Comfortable working with APIs from various services & providers
  • Experience writing tests (RSpec, Cucumber, jUnit, Spock, Geb, etc.)
  • Professional, precise communication skills
  • Experience listening to non-technical customers, turning discussions into specifications
  • Ability to manage one's own deliverables & timelines in a fast-moving environment
  • Awareness of current trends in design as well as best practices in FE engineering

Experience with preferred but not required:

  • Groovy & Grails
  • Java & Spring Boot
  • Jenkins
  • Ruby / Python
