      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.

We're a multidisciplinary, fully remote team that's passionate about creating products, like Todoist and Twist, that improve people's lives. We thrive on innovating new solutions to old productivity challenges and we seek to rethink how productivity tools are made.

      • Feeling empowered to achieve their ambitions
      • Inclusivity, open-mindedness, and diversity
      • The wellbeing of their teammates and the people around them
      • Making long-term, high-impact decisions, even if they’re harder
      We invite you to visit our blog to learn more about us, our values, and how we work. Your role As a web developer at Doist, you'll be the technical lead on some of the company's key projects, working closely with the marketing, design, front-end and back-end development teams every step of the way from strategy, planning, and design to implementation, testing, and optimization. This role is for a self-starter who's excited to build and maintain internal projects from end to end, optimize existing channels and explore new possibilities for engaging and growing our different communities.

      Requirements

      About you:
      • You have 3+ years of experience in web development.
      • You have a solid foundation of front-end development fundamentals (HTML5/CSS3/ES6) and enjoy turning design specs into pixel perfect UIs.
      • You're proficient in responsive design, smooth web animations, and email development.

      • Flexible schedule and location. This is a fully remote position, so you can work from wherever you please and on a schedule that works best for you. All you need is a computer and access to a stable internet connection (which we sponsor!).

      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.

You'll contribute to some of the most critical parts of the product process: understanding user needs through research, creating interactive prototypes, user testing, designing high-fidelity interfaces, defining components with the engineering team, and extensively testing your product to make sure it meets all the project goals.

      This is a full-time position in our San Francisco office. In addition to a competitive salary and equity package, we include: medical, dental, and vision plans, employer-funded HRA plan, 4+ weeks of paid vacation, catered lunches and stocked kitchen, new Apple gear, commuter benefits, $100 monthly Lyft credit, paid parental leave programs, in-office bicycle storage, and fun team-building events.

      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.
