    • 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.

      The web engineering team is responsible for all things unsplash.com.
       
      We use modern and well-supported tools to build the best possible version of our product in collaboration with the API and design teams.
       
      At a high level, the web architecture consists of a Node server (TypeScript), with React for rendering on both the server and client.
       
      Over the years, we’ve taken Unsplash from a humble Tumblr blog to a fully-fledged web app supporting tens of millions of users and tons of useful features. At the same time, we’ve improved its performance by leveraging modern techniques like SSR, dynamic chunk-splitting, CDN HTML caching, complex state management using memoization and Observables, etc. We’ve done all that with a lean team of just 2 web developers: frequent code releases and in-depth code reviews help us share knowledge and identify problems early. But there’s still so much more to learn and do, and that’s why we need you!
       
      We designed our company in a way to get as much of the stuff that’s not the creative work out of your way, so you can do your best work. We don’t believe in a top-down, shoulder-tapping, 9–5 type culture. You have the autonomy to manage yourself. We don’t work set hours. We respect flow. We believe you should be able to structure your days for what makes you feel the most energized and creative.
       
      A glance at some of our blog posts and open source work can give you an idea on how we approach and solve our problems:
       
      Recently open sourced libraries:
       
      Recent blog posts:
      You
      If you tick (most of) these boxes, you should get in touch with us:
       
      • You’re comfortable being part of a small, autonomous and distributed team.
      • Being a small team, we dive into everything. You are comfortable working across the full stack, from writing CSS to fine tuning a CDN—although we don’t expect you to know these skills upfront, but you should be willing to learn them when they become necessary.
      • You’re a quick learner who’s able to pick up new concepts whenever necessary.
      • You’re able to adequately prioritize between improving UX, optimizing performance, and building new features.
      • You’re comfortable with React.
      • You care about the end-product beyond just writing the code that makes it work.
       
      It’s a bonus if you have experience with:
      • TypeScript, Redux, Reselect, Observables.
      • front-end performance (e.g. optimising page load, page layout, and React rendering).
      • building a large-scale app
       
      Our team is made up of people who enjoy making things people love. We care about details and we care about quality.
       
      • Generous vacation: 3 weeks MINIMUM vacation.
      • Work from home: We’re a remote first company.
      • Workshops/conferences: Conferences & Learning budget.
      • Company retreats: Team retreats 1-2 times a year.
      • Relocation: If you’d like to relocate to Montreal, we provide $8,000 lump sum to cover out-of-pocket costs associated with relocation
      • Flexible hours: You manage your time. You set your working hours.
      • Maternal/Paternal leave: If you have a baby, you’re paid for any time you need to take off. The time you take off will be your judgment. This is an important time and we don’t want to be deciding which days you should be taking off or not. We’ll be there for you. If we feel the balance is not quite right or if you have any questions, we’ll chat.
      • Pet friendly: Obviously if you work from home, but also if you relocate to Montreal. Our office is pet friendly.
      If you want to work with us, all we want to see is a message from you. Please don’t send a resume. Instead, tell us who you are. Show us relevant things you’ve done that you’re excited about.

      At LightStep, our mission is to deliver confidence at scale for those who develop, operate, and rely upon today’s powerful software applications. We created LightStep because we understand the massive architectural transformation underway in the software industry, and we saw an opportunity to accelerate it, all while improving the quality of the developer and end-user experience. While we learned a great deal from our experiences building Dapper (Google’s distributed tracing solution) and Monarch (Google’s high-availability metrics solution), LightStep is in many ways a reaction to and a generational improvement beyond those approaches. Our story as individuals and as a company revolves around continuous learning, careful listening, and the belief that these fundamentally new software architectures require fundamentally new solutions.

      The OpenTracing project defines a standard that makes understanding, building, and improving distributed systems easier. In doing so, it improves the quality of open source tools and applications across the board. LightStep wants to support that goal: we all benefit when complex software becomes self-describing. We’re looking for a teammate who is knowledgeable about popular open source technologies and best practices, eager to be an expert on distributed systems performance, and can lend a hand as a teacher, communicator, and open source code contributor to help move the OpenTracing community forward.

      The OSS Engineer role is for software developers with a love for working open source, and interest in product management. In addition writing code, the OSS engineers are expected to show leadership by helping others contribute, champion issues, and managing project roadmaps and backlogs.

      Valued strengths

      • You are self-motivated and are great at prioritization, even when there’s “too much to do.”
      • You have experience working on distributed systems and performance at scale.
      • Capable of engaging with other large OSS projects and champion their adoption of OpenTracing.
      • Comfortable working in multiple languages, and strong language-level expertise in at least one.
      • You’re capable of mediating conflict and managing people who don’t work for you.

      Bonus points if…

      • You’re already an active participant in the OpenTracing community.
      • You have previous experience managing or contributing to a large open source project.
      • You’re a good teacher and public speaker.
      • Have a positive voice on social media.

      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
      To learn more about the company, visit www.beargroup.com
       
      We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
    • Development specialized on the free software project Open edX, used by many universities and companies to run online courses. See edx.org, stanford.edu or fun-mooc.fr for examples of Open edX instances.

      The Open edX platform is a large Python/Django codebase, with good code standards and architecture (a lot of the edX engineers come from MIT). You would work on different clients contracts using the platform. The clients list/references include Harvard, MIT, edX themselves, the French government, and various startups & universities currently running their own instances, or looking to create one. Tasks are very varied, from developing core platform features, custom exercises and tools for specific courses (XBlocks), customizing and deploying instances, working fullstack, operating our service infrastructure, improving our hosting platform, etc. You won't get bored here.


      Most of your work is published as free software (Open edX is released under the AGPL license, which requires clients to release modifications under the same license), and you would also contribute to the free software project, pushing most of your developments upstream through pull requests, contributing features, documentation or help on mailing-lists.


      - 3+ years working with Python
      - Experience with Python web frameworks, specifically Django
      - 3+ years of HTML, Javascript, and CSS (experience with React is a big plus!)
      - Experience with unit testing
      - You feel comfortable working in a Linux environment, specifically Debian or Ubuntu
      - Experience with databases: MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL
      - Experience with contributing to free software projects, and communicating within a free software community

      You would have to work with tasks from the following categories, but you would be able to pick up the skills on the job if you don't master this yet:

      - DevOps experience, especially on Debian/Ubuntu servers, Terraform, Vault, Packer, Prometheus, ELK, Docker. We are building a modern infrastructure and having a strong DevOps presence on top of core software engineering skills is a big plus with us.

      - Cloud computing, like AWS or OpenStack

      - Configuration management tools such as Ansible

      - RabbitMQ, Redis & Elasticsearch

      - git source control

      - Mobile development (iOS and/or Android)

      - Managing clients & projects from beginning to completion (senior developer)

      - Public speaking at conferences (you would present a talk every year at the Open edX Con)


      We are a team of twenty developers, all working remotely from Europe, North & South America, Asia & Australia. You would arrive at a critical moment, as we scale up to handle increasing demand from clients on the edX platform. The company is not affiliated with edX, but contributing and working with them on various projects. This is a full time position, were you would be able to work remotely from anywhere you want, as long as you have a good internet connexion. : )

      As our platform grows, so must our team. We’re currently looking for a Software Engineer with experience shipping production software to join us.
      We're a distributed, diverse, and growing team currently spread across four continents. While we have a small office in Santa Monica, CA, all of our positions are remote roles. Everyone is welcome to visit and work from our office, but it's not required. Although we are remote first, we appreciate quality time with our co-workers, so we meet in person once a year for our annual All Hands.

      About this Role:

      You'll remotely work with a team of engineers within our distributed engineering team to:
      * Build intuitive UIs for retailers and merchandisers
      * Define patterns for extending or augmenting storefront and operator UIs
      * Engineer methods for securing core and custom GraphQL APIs
      * Increase accessibility of all our applications
      * Improve tooling for building and shipping new UI components, storefronts, and operator tools
      * Improve performance, reduce page weight/cost, and decrease load times for our storefront and operator UIs

      About You:

      * You have developed and supported software systems in a production environment.
      * You see the value in reviewing and documenting code, pair programming and get excited about improving tools and processes.
      * You love being a mentor and compassionately teach patterns and best practices to engineers on your team.
      * You actively seek and appreciate the input of peers, designers, infrastructure engineers, and product owners.
      * You're comfortable working remotely and believe in the value of distributed teams.
      * You believe in building an inclusive community with and for your co-workers.

      About Our Stack:

      * React and Apollo GraphQL on the client
      * Node with some services in Clojure on the server
      * GraphQL API
      * MongoDB for most application data.
      * Apache Kafka for modeling both streams and tables.
      * Elasticsearch
      * Docker and Kubernetes on Amazon Web Services
      Do you want to know more about what our team is working on and how you might be able to help? You should apply!

      More about Reaction:

      We offer 100% coverage for medical, dental, and vision insurance, and up to 50% coverage for dependents. In addition, we offer a 401K, and U.S. employees benefit from 12 weeks of parental leave. We aim to offer the same benefits to everyone across the globe, but some of these may vary based on location and local laws. All remote employees are offered a budget for an ergonomic chair and standing desk at home.
      We discourage our team members from working unreasonable hours, beyond the typical 40 hours per week. And it's important that we take time off and recharge when necessary, that's why we have a minimum vacation policy that encourages us to take a minimum of 15 vacation days per year. We also value continuous improvement with a monthly learning stipend, so there are plenty of opportunities to learn new subjects or hone existing skills.

      We believe in good documentation and proactive communication. Inclusivity is a priority of everyone on our team. Read more about our team values and our operating principles in this blog post.

In addition to our SaaS solution we're working on bringing this same simplicity of deployment and automation to customers who want to run and manage multiple Elastic clusters on-premise (in their own data centers).You will be contributing significantly to both initiatives.

      We are looking for a thoughtful, detail-oriented developer to be the next member of our growing developer-owned, remote-friendly, people-first, hyphen-loving company. 

      The ideal candidate would have several years of experience working in open source web frameworks. They would also be eager to learn, grow, and foster healthy working relationships. 

      If you have experience building production web applications and are as passionate about helping customers as you are about working with new technologies, then we want to talk! 

      Requirements

      Skills & Requirements


      Do you love to work directly with customers to solve business problems?


      We believe great software is discovered by understanding the core problems our clients are facing – and that is best achieved through frequent and direct communication with the subject matter experts. We provide leadership to support and guide interactions, but we need you to be comfortable talking with clients, discussing problems, and proposing solutions, which may not always be more software. 

      Do you have experience writing production web applications?

       

      We strive to support our team’s growth, learning, and taking on new roles at the edge of our comfort zones. At the same time, our clients expect us to bring a certain level of expertise. If you have never worked on a production web application, it is unlikely you will succeed here, even if you have other types of engineering experience.


      Are you able to work remotely, within +/- 2 hours of US Eastern time zone?


      We all mostly work from home. This requires the ability to self-direct and communicate well in writing. It also offers tremendous freedom and power, which comes with, uh, tremendous responsibility. We currently require our team to be within a 2hr time zone difference of Richmond, VA and physically based in the United States.

       Bonus Points

      Being within easy driving distance of Richmond or Charlottesville is a huge plus!

      Experience with:

      Open source web development platforms (Rails, Django, Node.js)

      Writing tests and using automated testing frameworks

      Modern HTML/CSS (nothing crazy, we have a design team)

      JavaScript and front-end JavaScript frameworks

      Linux/Infrastructure/DevOps

      AWS/cloud architectures

      Mobile-first development, iOS/Android, React Native, etc.

      WHAT WE OFFER

      A Great Team – Our team of engineers and designers is the best part of working here. We only hire people who are fantastic teammates – competent and smart, sure, but also humble, positive, and generous.

      Great Clients – We work with mostly small and medium clients, for whom our projects make a huge impact. We prioritize clients who are pleasant and good to work with, people who share our values of transparency and empathy.

      Work From Home – We are a distributed company. Everyone works from home, though the leadership team all live in central Virginia.

      Negligible Travel – In general, we don’t travel routinely for projects. If this is a specific concern, we’re happy to discuss.

      Flexible Work Schedule – We require a certain amount of overlap with the rest of the team, but if you have a predictable schedule, we can probably support it, e.g., ending at 3:30 every day or being out every Friday morning.

      Good Work Life Balance (really) – We ask our team to work 40 hours a week*. That’s all: a good, productive 40 hours. And then we try our best to leave you alone off the clock. We do this in part because that’s how we want to live but also because we want our team to be recharged and ready to do their best when working. *If you need to work fewer than 40 hours, that might be possible too; let’s talk.

      Competitive Compensation – We offer highly competitive salary and benefits, including generous time off, 401k, FSA, medical and dental insurance.
