    • Work on the Rainforest QA dashboard, our single page application where users manage their test suite, configure test runs, review results and set up their account

    • Work on our tester application, where our crowd of testers connect to our virtual machine infrastructure to conduct tests and submit their results

    • Extensive experience in Javascript and be extremely knowledgeable of the language and associated ecosystem

    • Extensive experience in React (or equivalent framework / libraries) and be extremely knowledgeable of the framework and associated ecosystem

    • Experience in writing and maintaining CSS for large projects

    • Enthusiasm with building web applications using modern tools like ES7, React, Redux, CSS Modules, Flow, and Webpack - amongst others

    • Even though this position is mainly frontend focused, we expect you to have some grasp of the whole stack to be able to effectively communicate with engineers across the team, and can make backend or infrastructure changes when the situation calls for it

    • Professional experience in engineering SaaS products

    • Experience leading projects with teams

    • An ownership mindset: you should look not only at what you’re asked to do, but ask why you’re doing it and how it impacts on the rest of the product, our customers, and whether it makes sense. We expect you to be responsible for your work and to resolve any bugs you might ship

    • Excitement to learn

    • Comfortable working in a large codebase with many stakeholders

    • Identify with our company values

    • No BS, No Ego: We are radically candid with each other in every interaction. This means a lack of politics, a lack of showboating, a lack of BS. This also means brevity, clarity of thought, and clarity of communication. We give and take feedback without ego, with the knowledge that we all are operating with good intent. No ego is the check system to balance no BS and keep it kind. No ad-hominem attacks.

    • 1% better every day: Continuous improvement is what motivates us. We design our product, our organization and our careers to be continually improving. Mistakes are only bad if they are repeated. Experiments are only wasted if they are not learned from.

    • Own the journey: We are all owners. We demand that of each other. The journey we own is threefold: our customers’ journey, our company’s journey and our personal journey. Our reason for existence is to nail our customer journey, so that we can scale our company’s success.

    • Flexible, remote work options

    • Generous vacation time

    • Competitive compensation and stock options

    • Professional development, career coaching, and conference attendance

    • 3 offsites per year: every ~4 months we arrange an offsite for the whole company to get together so we can get to know our colleagues better and understand what we need to do. The location is ever changing, so you will get to see some new places!

    Requirements

    All about you

    You Wordpress with finesse. Some people make an awful mess when they write code for the ‘press. This isn’t you. You’re an artisan. You write code with elegance. And you’ve got years of exquisite, custom Wordpress builds to back it up.

    Design is your superpower. While you’re great at coding widgets and pages, your passion is for making them stunning. You’re a whizz at translating brand guidelines into beautiful things. And you’re comfortable sipping lattes with studio and design teams.

    You know Timber isn’t just for lumberjacks. And you know how to use it when expanding custom themes.

    You know your way around Javascript ecosystems. Like Gulp. Or other ones that aren’t named here ‘cause no one briefed the copywriter.

    You’ve got the skills. In PHP and Javascript, that is. And if you haven’t already, you’re into learning Typescript.

    You say ‘yes’ to CSS. You don’t brag about it, but you’ve received plenty of compliments for your CSS skills.

    You’re a Git. But, in a good way. You’ve used Git and Github so much that it feels like a second home.

    You know what AWS is. And you’ve probably deployed Wordpress on it. If you haven’t, you’re open to learning.

    You’re most of the above. But not necessarily all. You can feel in your tummy if this is the right job for you.

    You’re committed to learning. You love filling your head with new stuff and taking on new projects that expand your horizons.
