Youll find success here if you enjoy leading people & writing code, & you are a welcoming leader who knows how to communicate with your team in order to provide fantastic web experiences.

  • Define & adhere to internal coding standards, development processes, & design best practices.
  • Ensure quality by performing thorough testing & leveraging peer reviews for your work & the work of cross functional teams.
  • Help scope, estimate, & prioritize work.
  • Work with marketing & engineering team members to build features from concept through implementation

We'd love to hear from you if:

  • You have experience growing, mentoring & leading teams
  • You have experience in a frontend development environment, preferably building & maintaining distributed applications professionally.
  • You have depth of experience in at least one modern front-end framework & can speak to its benefits (React, Vue, AngularJS, etc.)
  • You have mild experience in backend development (such as PHP, Python, etc)enough that you can smoothly navigate the workings of a web application even if backend development is not your focus
  • You have experience driving technical projects, prioritizing work, identifying dependencies, facilitating technical decisions & team discussions.
  • Youre comfortable collaborating closely with product managers & designers, engineers & marketing teams providing estimates or product ideas that will influence your teams roadmap
  • Youre a thoughtful communicator
  • You embrace & demonstrate our values: humility, creativity, & independence

Pluses, but not requirements, include:

  • Experience & interest in the React ecosystem
  • Experience with commerce flows & terminology
