Job Description

Essential Job Functions

Your objective will be to build and support robust tools, applications, and frameworks that provide a world class customer experience. As a JavaScript engineer, your work will directly impact our customers experience using our website. Speed and functionality are crucial to our success. To be successful in this role you must be the kind of software engineer who can produce strong front end code; a person who can build great products and provide a great customer experience. We don’t care if you taught yourself, attended a boot camp, or have a Computer Science degree; we care that you know your stuff. This means you have superb software engineering fundamentals, produce thoughtfully designed code that is reliable and maintainable. All of that is meaningless without thorough testing, of course. We’re looking for engineers that are enthusiastic about learning new technologies and skills that will continue to make a difference.

Technologies We Use


  • We expect a strong understanding of JavaScript ES5 and ES6 as well as Webpack and Docker. A large chunk of our application is written in Vue so ideally you’re well antiquated with the framework. 
  • As you are developing, testing should be at the forefront of your mind. We use Jasmine to test our JavaScript code.
  • HTML & CSS are the core building blocks for any front-end developer and it’s no different here. We use templating engines such as Dust.
  • For our databases, we heavily rely on Elasticsearch, MySQL, and Redis. We have a couple other platforms in use throughout our applications.
  • Our cloud platform is currently AWS but are transitioning to GCP. It’s important to understand the tools and services offered by a cloud service provider in order to chose the best option for your application.
  • git push origin source-control
  • Are there others? Yes. Is our stack fun? Yes. Will you get to work on what interests you? Yes. Should you apply? Yes.

Requirements


  • Degree in Computer Science, a related technical or scientific field, or equivalent experience
  • 2-4 years experience as a software engineer
  • Familiarity with continuous integration and build tools
  • Mastery of one programming language and working knowledge of at least one other
  • Familiarity with multiple frameworks from languages and domains
  • Understanding of multiple programming paradigms
  • Good grasp of design patterns and anti-patterns
