    • Hi there!

      We're looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to join the engineering team at Zapier. Want to create a simple product that allows anyone to do complex, incredible things with the world's APIs? Then keep reading!

      We know applying for and taking on a new job at any company requires a leap of faith. We want you to feel comfortable and excited to apply at Zapier. To help share a bit more about life at Zapier, here are a few resources in addition to the job description that can give you an inside look at what life is like at Zapier. We hope you'll take the leap of faith and apply.

      Zapier is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce.

      Even though our job description may seem like we're looking for a specific candidate, the role inevitably ends up tailored to the person who applies and joins. Regardless of how well you feel you fit our description, we encourage you to apply if:

      You care deeply about improving frontend technology so our customers can have a great experience using our product.

      About You

      You love code. You love to take raw ideas and build great products with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. You know JavaScript is imperfect, but you embrace its functional side and genuinely enjoy coding with it. You might like to talk about obscure computer science topics, but really, you just want to write simple code and ship new products and features to customers (or improve existing ones).

      You love great UX. You spend most of your time coding, but you also have an eye for great design and a feel for great UX. Maybe you were once a designer (or still are) or maybe your creative outlet has always been the code. Either way, you care about more than just the code.

      You love learning new things. You love researching new tech and driving forward with the implementation details. Your focus is on frontend JavaScript code, but you can dig in wherever needed. Python, CSS, build tools, shell scripts, you name it. If you don't already know it, you're ready to learn it.

      You can balance lots of concerns. Frontend apps have to take into account performance (using networks and devices that we can't control), customer demands, A/B tests, UX research, code quality, a rapidly changing ecosystem of languages and modules, and the list goes on. And we actually want to ship things too! You can balance those demands without getting overwhelmed and keep the needle moving forward.

      You love helping others. You love sharing knowledge with the rest of your team, building shared tooling for other engineers, giving back to the open-source community, and directly helping customers.

       

      Things You Might Do

      Zapier is a small, fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:

      • Research, guide, and execute frontend architecture changes, including but by no means limited to GraphQL, server-side React rendering, and Flow typing.
      • Build reusable React components with modular CSS, manage data on the client with Redux and GraphQL, and test everything with Jest.
      • Measure and resolve performance bottlenecks, using tools like Chrome DevTools, Lighthouse, WebPagetest, or custom tooling.
      • Refactor or improve existing code. We've migrated most of our frontend to React, but we still have some Backbone code to clean up. And we constantly find ways to improve all of our JavaScript code.
      • Work closely with our product, design, and UX teams to create amazing and intuitive experiences that make it effortless to connect different apps together.
      • Help put tools, processes, and documentation in place to improve our code quality.
      • Review code written by other team members or other teams.
      • Ship to hundreds of thousands of users every day while having lots of autonomy in terms of code and feature ownership.
      • Work with complex and varied data structures (APIs can be a little, uh, eccentric).
      • Help out with our Python backend or Node-based developer platform.
      • Share what you know and learn either one-on-one or with lightning talks to the group.
      • Give back to the community via open source and blog posts.
      • Experiment: this is a startup so everything can change as we experiment with doing more custom partnership work
      • As a part of Zapier's all-hands philosophy, help customers via support to ensure they have the best experience possible.

      You’ll also have the opportunity to specialize in a variety of areas of the Zapier codebase, including core product or platform development. Focusing on a specialization will not limit your area for growth at Zapier as each engineer brings a unique perspective and can contribute differently in all areas. We encourage participation and will frequently have engineers contribute across teams to assist in projects.

      About Zapier

      For the past six years, Zapier has been helping people across the world automate the boring and tedious parts of their job. We do that by helping everyone connect the web applications they already use and love.

      We believe that there are jobs a computer is best at doing and that there are jobs a human is best at doing. We want to empower businesses to create processes and systems that let computers do what they are best at doing and let humans do what they are best at doing.

      We believe that with the right tools, you can have big impact with less hassle.

      We believe in small teams. Small teams are fast and nimble. Small teams mean less bureaucracy and less management and more getting things done.

      We believe in a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment. All teammates at Zapier agree to a code of conduct.

      The Whole Package

      Location: Planet Earth.

      If you want to work remote, that's great. If you want to work near others, that's cool too. Our team of 100+ is distributed because it lets us work with the best people. You don't have to be located in the USA either. Some team members live in the United Kingdom, Thailand, India, Nigeria, Taiwan, Guatemala, New Zealand, Australia, and more! You just need the skills and drive to succeed in this role and the ability to work from anywhere.

      Compensation:

      • Competitive salary (we don't use remote as an excuse to pay less)
      • Great healthcare + dental + vision coverage*
      • Retirement plan with 4% company match*
      • Profit sharing
      • 2 annual company retreats to awesome places

      • Pick your own equipment. We'll set you up with whatever Apple laptop + monitor combo you want plus any software you need.
      • Unlimited vacation policy. Plus we require you to take at least 2 weeks off each year. We see most employees take 4-5 weeks off per year. This isn't a vague policy where unlimited vacation means no vacation.
      • Work with awesome companies around the world. We partner with great software companies all over the world and you'll constantly get to interact with people from these great companies

      *While we take care of our international folks as best we can, currently, healthcare and retirement plans are only available to US-based employees.

       

      How To Apply

      We have a non-standard application process. To jump-start the process we ask a few questions we normally would ask at the start of an interview. This helps speed up the process and lets us get to know you a bit better right out of the gate.

      After you apply, you are going to hear back from us, even if we don't seem like a good fit. In fact, throughout the process, we strive to make sure you never go more than seven days without hearing from us.

      Optional: Share anonymously some demographic information about yourself to help us better track trends related to the backgrounds of candidates interested in working at Zapier in order for us to build a team that represents the users at Zapier and the broader world population.

      Zapier is an equal opportunity employer. We're excited to work with talented and empathetic people no matter their race, color, gender, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, or age. Our code of conduct provides a beacon for the kind of company we strive to be, and we celebrate our differences because those differences are what allow us to make a product that serves a global user base.

      • Actively participating in the product development process, quickly understanding how our services contribute to customer value, and gradually forming opinions on how to make those services better with minimal technical supervision.

      What We’ll Expect From You:

      • Experience working in a role where you had to balance solving software performance and scaling challenges with creating customer value.
      • Willingness to understand the architecture of multiple systems, and being able to make updates to them independently.
      • Have the ability to lead projects from start to finish, working cross functionally to gather requirements, plan work, and helping to steer development until launch.
      • Not required, but some previous exposure to Javascript and/or Rails applications, demonstrating an understanding of customer facing dependencies within a broader distributed system is a nice to have.
      • Experience with consuming and processing messages from Kafka or similar service.
      • Proficiency with writing efficient queries in MySQL.
      • Experience building APIs for external consumption.
      • Experience with Kubernetes, Docker, and CI/CD pipelines like GoCD or Concourse a plus.

      • A strong appreciation for rich UI experiences, and particularly the flexibility to adapt APIs and backend services to accommodate such experiences.
      • A passion for creating developer tools and meaningful developer workflows.
      • This role will be expected to participate in an on-call rotation

      Why You’ll Like Working for DigitalOcean:

      Bear Group is a leading web development firm based in Seattle looking for an experienced backend web developer to join our team. You will have the opportunity to work with leading companies and marketing teams to develop complex sites and integrations between systems.
       
      We are a fully distributed team that primarily builds in PHP on the Magento and Drupal platforms for ecommerce and content management sites. Since we are fully remote, you can work from anywhere! We do require at least 4 hours of working time overlap with the Pacific time zone work day where most of our clients are located. As a highly client focused organization, you will occasionally need to meet according to their schedule. This typically falls between 10 and 5 Pacific time, and we strive to give you plenty of time to focus on development.
       
      Working with a variety of clients, we fluidly form groups including a Technical Project Manager, a Quality Analyst, and one or more developers to complete sprints of work. The type of work depends on the client, but often includes:
      • Developing client web sites using Drupal and Magento Commerce
      • Focus on front-end development: HTML/CSS/Javascript coding, with Twig and PHP at template level
      • Balancing workload across many projects simultaneously
      • Quality assurance and testing across projects
      • Collaborating cross-functionally and with a diverse group of clients
      • Working with business development to assess and price new client projects
       
      You will need to be self-motivating and able to work independently most of the time, but we have a friendly and capable team to collaborate with when you encounter obstacles. You’ll need to have a minimum of 3-5 years of related work experience, a BA/BS degree, and experience with Drupal, Magento or similar open source frameworks. You’ll also need to be visually oriented with experience in Sketch or Photoshop and a good understanding of content organization and concepts within information architecture. Experience in client-service environments is a must and you’ll need to be professional and client service oriented; positive and proactive; able to react swiftly to meet client expectations.
       
      Since the technology world is constantly evolving, you’ll be expected to keep up with the current technologies and practices. To help with this, we provide an annual education stipend that can be used for attending relevant conferences or continued education courses.
       
      During your first week you will work closely with one or our senior developers to set up your new system and familiarize with our processes and tools. The system will be either Mac, Linux, or Windows to your preference, and we use Docker containers for a consistent development server stack. Other tools you will use include:
      • Git for source control
      • Bitbucket for Git repositories
      • Jira for project management
      • Confluence for documentation
      • Slack for communication.
      As you get your feet under you we will introduce some project work, again in collaboration with a senior developer on a sprint they are currently working on. Ultimately our developers work independently on your own tickets and sprints.
       
      In addition to competitive pay, a new computer, insurance, and 401k match, you’ll also receive:
      • 3 Weeks PTO plus approximately 10 vacation days annually
      • $1500 annual education stipend
      • Software stipend for the tools that you prefer to do the job

      Narrative is building the first global data marketplace. It has often been said that data is the new currency. Unfortunately, maximizing the value of data is often easier said than done. On one side, transacting via individual point to point integrations carries a lot of overhead in both business development and technical integration efforts. On the other, going through big aggregators introduces opacity in the pricing and provenance of the data. At Narrative, we help our customers get value from their data by building a central auction platform to reduce the friction and tooling to increase the transparency in this process.

      We are a small, early stage team looking for great developers who want to jump in and take major systems and user-facing features from design to launch. Here’s where we are now:

      We are operating in Amazon Web Services. Our services are mainly deployed on EC2 provisioned with Terraform.

      We also heavily use other technology on AWS such as DynamoDB, S3, and RDS.

      Our backend includes a data ingestion web service with supporting Kinesis consumers, along with a growing array of Spark projects. It’s written mostly in Scala, with a smattering of Python for lambda functions.

      We sit somewhere in the middle of the “Scala as a worse Haskell” and “Scala as a better Java” spectrum. We love functional programming and we do make use of libraries like cats, but at the same time we heavily favor core language features and have no intention of rewriting everything using Free Monads.

      Our web app UI is written in Typescript with Angular2 and a supporting API running on Node, and is deployed and monitored using much the same supporting tech as the backend.

      Other services we use include: GitHub, CircleCI, DataDog.

      Here are some examples of projects that we would like some help with:

      Interactive tools to help buyers discover the data they need to accomplish their business objectives.

      Interactive tools to help sellers maximize the yield from the data that they are selling.

      Data analytics pipelines to drive the interactive report UIs. For example: reports for yield forecasting and deal pre-qualification.

      The ideal candidate should:

      Have experience building modern web applications using Javascript, HTML, and CSS.

      Be able to debug various aspects of web application code, such as cross-browser Javascript quirks.

      Thoroughly understand the HTTP lifecycle and how the browser interacts with web APIs.

      Enjoy building fast, user-friendly UIs.

      Not be afraid of contributing to the entire stack when the need arises, given that frontend doesn’t simply mean HTML/CSS. For instance, a feature might require

      some metrics to be computed from a Spark Report

      creating a MySQL migration script

      tweaking S3 permissions and terraform scripts for deployment

      We are not looking for a 100% fit on all the technology buzzwords, but we are looking for someone with strong technical skills who is eager to pick up new technologies as necessary.

      We are building the team with a remote-first mindset, and as a result every team member is expected to have an ability to synthesize business requirements, distill the domain, contribute to high-level design documents, efficiently communicate asynchronously, and more generally work autonomously toward a shared vision.

      Continuously investing in quality (code quality, tests, pull request reviews, refactoring…) is part of our strategy to sustainably maximize the business value we deliver.

    • Hotjar (UTC-1 and UTC+3)
      2 months ago
      Note: Although this is a remote position, we are only seeking candidates in European / African timezones between UTC-1 and UTC+3.
       
      We are currently seeking ambitious and pragmatic software engineers who are passionate about building great online apps. You'll use your skills to have a real impact on a product used by over 915,000 users from 190 different countries. We are looking for an engineer who loves being part of a team but is also self-motivated and loves the idea of working remotely.
       
      As a Frontend Software Engineer with Hotjar, you’ll be working on developing and improving features built primarily in JavaScript and AngularJS. You will work closely with other front-end engineers, backend engineers and designers to implement changes to our user interface and tracking script according to best practices. You will need to be highly process driven and eager to learn new technologies and programming languages. We favour those with a delivery-focused mindset, versus a focus on flawless or over-engineered code.
       
      Compensation Range
      The budgeted compensation range for this role is €55,000 to €75,000 annually. Ranges are based on market research and are equitable to other roles within Hotjar. The actual compensation offered will be based on relative experience and skills. At this time we are only able to provide official employment status to those located in Malta. All other team members will join as full-time consultants and will be responsible for paying any taxes or applicable fees where they reside.
       

      Requirements

      • Experience using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, AngularJS and/or other JS frameworks.
      • Experience using Python, PostgreSQL, Redis, Memcached, Lua, Linux, Nginx, Elasticsearch, and Amazon Web Services a plus.
      • Familiarity with automated testing frameworks such as Jest, Karma, Cypress, or Protractor.
      • Familiarity with distributed revision control systems such as Mercurial or Git.
      • Fluent in English with excellent written and verbal interpersonal skills.
      • Ability to work independently - accountable for your own actions and able to act with both urgency and integrity.
      • Desire to work in a caring, transparent, and giving work environment, in line with Hotjar’s company valuesculture and ways of working.
      • Will submit to a background check, confidentially processed by our third party.
    • We are looking for an expert Javascript developer to help us build frontend apps for our products and services. You will be working with the Vue.js framework primarily, bringing UX to life and developing all the frontend interface and interactions. Experience of working with Vue.js is obviously a plus, but more generally you will need to be a strong all-round Javascript developer with a solid grasp of HTML/CSS as well. If you're also proficient in working with backend Node.js as well, that would be a bonus.

      You will need to be a creative problem solver, as much of the work requires creative approaches to unique technical challenges which often don't have much - if any - coverage on sites such as Stack Overflow.

      The complexity of the software is also a key component. Much of what we are building is concerned with complex data structures (including SVGs) as well as the inevitable complexities of scaling an app out into large organisations. As such, you will need to have a strong engineering mindset with the ability to think through problems in a structured way. Or to put it another way, you should be able to produce robust, tested code that will stand up in production.

      Responsibilities

      • Building robust frontend apps with the Vue.js framework, including unit tests
      • Creating custom single-file components for use in the interfaces
      • Developing applications for parsing and working with XML structures including SVG data
      • Writing clean, well-documented and well-tested code with strong adherence to modern ECMAscript standards
      • Optimising applications for maximum speed and scalability
      • Working with the team to solve complex challenges and contributing ideas and solutions regularly

      Skills and qualifications

      • Strong understanding of vanilla Javascript and latest ECMAscript standards
      • Basic understanding of web markup, including HTML5 and CSS3
      • Minimum 2 years experience of working with the Vue.js framework
      • Experience of working with state management systems, preferably Vuex
      • Experience of writing unit tests in tools such as Jest or Mocha (or component snapshots)
      • Familiarity with frontend build tools, particularly Webpack
      • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools including Git
      • Good understanding of browser rendering behavior and performance
      • Bachelors degree in computer science
      • Excellent communication skills
