    Your role:

    As a Front-end Developer, you’ll be joining a small team of developers to work on the web apps of our core products; Todoist and Twist. Both apps are highly interactive and complex, allowing you to leverage modern tools such as React and Redux, to deliver a unique experience to over a million of our active users around the world.

    Like every member of the team, you’ll own the projects from day one and help the team make core architectural decisions. Within this role you’ll also have the opportunity to collaborate in cross-functional teams to drive exciting initiatives like @mentions for Twist or the new dark mode for Todoist.

    > Work-Life balance. That means 8 hours of work, 5 days each week (for a total of 40 hours) because the time you spend outside of work is just as important as the time you spend working.

    > 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!).

    > Generous paid vacation. 40 days of paid time off to use however you like (vacation, national holidays, etc.).

    > Paid parental leave. 18 weeks of paid maternity leave and 5 weeks of paid paternity/adoption leave.

    Our ideal Lead Front-End Developer will embrace and believe in our Core Values. In addition to embodying these values, the Lead Front-End Developer will demonstrate the following competencies and skills required for success in this role:

    Team Mindset & Positive Attitude

    We believe that we’re stronger as a team because of our ability to work and win together. All employees play an integral role within our culture, and we value people who contribute passion and ideas to the growth of our product, business, and original content. We believe in the power of feedback and confronting harsh realities with optimism, and our developers foster trust and respect by developing and practicing honest communication amongst each other and other departments at Soundstripe.

    Adaptability & Collaboration

    Soundstripe is growing fast. Our team is energized by change and the personal and professional opportunities it affords. To best serve our organization, our users and the industry, our Lead Front-End Developer will need to thrive within an agile, changing environment, enjoy collaborating with a team in planned and unplanned meetings and helping to define criteria for the technical growth ahead. The strongest candidate for this role will grow with our company and demonstrate the ability to adapt quickly to the evolving needs of our industry, organization and users.

    Strong Communication

    As the Lead Front-End Developer, you will be expected to demonstrate both strong written and verbal communication. The ability to understand and prioritize priorities, needs, requirements and constraints, and then clearly articulate those to various people and departments, will be critical.

    Attention to Detail

    In this role, you work in the minutia. Detailed nuances matter. Details can dramatically change the outcome, output, or delivery of your work, and you are therefore expected to stay attuned and response to even the slightest of details in your everyday tasks. Constantly thinking about edge and race cases should be your bread and butter.


    As the Lead Front-End Developer, you will work with other developers to create large, scalable web applications. In doing so, you will need to not only be able to offer and receive healthy critique from experienced developers, but you will need to enjoy teaching and mentoring less experienced ones. We expect all developers to have a love for sharing knowledge and helping others grow. This ties directly into our core value, “Be humble and retain a giving and serving heart and mind.”

    Problem Solving

    As the Lead Front-End Developer, you will be expected to engage in constant technical problem-solving, identifying or developing options and selecting solutions to problems which occur in the role. This may include following standard procedures to gather information and to identify problems and their solutions, analyzing data and using initiative to select from available resolutions, carrying out research or collecting and analyzing a range of data from different sources, resolving problems where an immediate solution may not be apparent, or anticipating and dealing with highly complex problems.
