Job type: Full-time

Category: Software Dev


Pitch, a new company from the makers of Wunderlist, is looking for a Senior Performance Engineer with deep experience of JavaScript performance - if you’re more interested in shaving milliseconds off of boot timings and keeping rendering at 60 fps, rather than writing CSS, you’re in the right place. We love performance optimizations, metrics instrumentation, and iterating on best-practices with the rest of the frontend teams.

Who we are looking for

  • 5+ years working with frontend frameworks and libraries professionally (and having built or contributed to some is a big plus.)

  • Knowledge of React (Reagent) and its internals

  • Experience with ClojureScript, functional programming and immutable data structures is preferred, but not required

  • You know the weirdest parts of JavaScript and love working with it anyway.

  • You know your way around the performance profiling and debugging tools in your web browser of choice.

  • Diving into a new system to understand performance bottlenecks excites you.

  • You are a strong communicator and are equally comfortable talking with your immediate team, other frontend engineers and backend infrastructure engineers.

  • You are ready to learn, but just as excited to teach.

  • You understand that the perfect solution is informed by the people who will be building on your work, rather than being purely dependent on technical merits. Empathy is a feature.

If you tick all these boxes we'd love to get to know you <3

We value diversity of perspective and seek to build an inclusive workplace that welcomes people from all different backgrounds (including dogs).
