Who We’re Seeking

We are looking for a Senior React Engineer who can turn ideas into reliable software. You’re the type of person who can shift easily from working at the planning and architecture level of a project down into the code. You take pride in your work and how it affects your team, the product, and our customers. You believe in the importance of testing, and in the importance of documentation. You are proactive with a natural desire to improve the product, the department, the company, and your own career. You communicate clearly and proactively where you are now, where you are going, and if there are any obstacles. You have a passion for quality and an eye for detail. You have empathy for the customer's experience, and care about the usability of the product you are building. You love to create.

  • You have 6+ years of frontend development experience, with a strong focus in React; experience with other frameworks (as well as plain vanilla javascript) is preferred

  • You have significant experience developing and supporting a production-level web application with a team

  • You are familiar with React routing, redux, sagas, higher order components, and at least one testing framework / toolset

  • You have a clear understanding of the fundamentals of modern web development, including accessibility, usability, responsive design, testing and debugging, security, and bandwidth and browser constraints

  • You are able to translate user stories and feature requirements into clear, actionable tasks; can provide reasonable estimates for the amount of work involved; and can work with members of the product and design teams to find the right solution

  • You can clearly communicate complex concepts both verbally and in writing, to both technical and non-technical audiences

  • You write well designed, readable, testable, and scalable code in accordance with clean code principles and team consensus. You keep solutions simple when possible, and know how to encapsulate complexity when it’s necessary

  • You value collaboration and teamwork

  • You are eager to teach and empower you co-workers and have experience in scaling adoption of new technologies and / or skills across an engineering organization

What You'll Do

You will build and own innovative client web experiences with a desire to achieve exceptional design fidelity, usability, and performance. You will be responsible for technical planning and execution of web projects through research, hands-on development, feature review, supporting other engineers. These projects will require working closely with our product managers, user interface designers, and engineering teams. Additionally, you will provide technical leadership for front end engineering work (code and process), will keep designers and product managers informed and involved about relevant technical considerations and tradeoffs, and will drive evaluation and adoption of new technologies.

  • Implement the features and user interfaces of VidMob products

  • Work with Product and Design groups to help define and refine product features

  • Architect efficient and reusable front-end systems that drive complex web applications

  • Collaborate with Product Designers, Product Managers, and Software Engineers to deliver compelling user-facing products in a fast-moving environment

  • Identify and resolve performance and scalability issues

  • Develop Javascript code that interfaces with APIs and handles the API responses gracefully, creating an efficient and fluid customer experience

  • Review how a new design fits into our existing UI library and Design System, working towards reducing duplicate styles, removing extraneous elements, and keep your code lean and DRY

  • Work within the constraints of business requirements and timelines

  • Identify new opportunities to improve the experience of external and internal clients

  • Demonstrate (and define) Senior-level skills and performance as a role model for other engineers

  • Other front-end development related tasks as needed
