Senior Frontend Software Developer

Full Time
Portland, Oregon

This role will likely have a lot of responsibilities that revolve around building well-designed, implemented, and tested products. It will require someone with specific expertise building projects up from scratch, including but not limited to tooling, utilities, routing, and templating. You’ll need to be comfortable with contributing to building the tools we’ll all use to build reusable, high-performance components for use within our platform.


  • Design and develop front-end features of the app’s and other internally or externally facing products.
  • Build up tooling, paradigms, and utilities that makes the lives of the front-end engineers easier.
  • Work with the Product and Design teams to ensure technical feasibility of UI/UX designs.
  • Optimize solutions for speed and scalability.
  • Be able and willing to wear multiple metaphorical hats and contribute in whatever capacity is needed to ensure mutual success.
  • Work constructively with others to discuss potential solutions, make a decision as a team, and move forward decisively and quickly.
  • Be able to align with and support the team’s direction.

Projects you might work on in your first 6 months:

  • Build and maintain accessible interactive experiences for an extremely diverse user base.
  • Build tools and establish paradigms for designing, creating, maintaining, publishing, and documenting reusable components across multiple platforms and projects.
  • Create highly efficient containers designed for code splitting and dynamic loading while maintaining a professional polish.
  • Building reusable micro-interactions and other delight-inducing features to add shine and fun to our applications.
  • Contribute to a high-performance, customizable message-passing framework to facilitate communication between applications.
