Here's to the crazy ones. The hackers. The doers. The passionate geeks in a world of corporate drones.

A cool, fully-remote startup is looking for a Senior Front-end Engineer… preferably one that does NOT suck! You must be speaking JavaScript through your sleep and know React.js and Next.js like the back of your hand.

First, let's get one thing out of the way. We know that our salaries are low, at least for the exceptional talent we're looking for. We plan to dramatically increase salaries by the end of the year when we raise a seed round. We have already attracted serious interest from top investors, but we're intentionally bootstrapping on our own till our public launch in time for Black Friday.

On top of the salary, you'll get generous stock options, performance-based bonuses, and annual profit share, as well as extensive training and mentoring, BUT…

You must be a perfectionist — you're simply too passionate about your work to call something "done" when it's not near perfect yet!

Do you remember how "Monica" from F.R.I.E.N.D.S was obsessed with the little details? Now, imagine if she became a front-end engineer somehow… Do you think this is you?

Okay, we want to hire you if you...

  • are an absolute expert in JavaScript, including vanilla code

  • have rock-solid skills in building SPAs and PWAs using React.js and Next.js

  • have experience with SSR technologies

  • can build mobile apps using React Native

  • are familiar with reactive programming, as well as modern trends in JS

  • can turn design system mockups to pixel-perfect code with attention to detail

  • know your HTML5 and CSS

  • know how to deliver a fully-responsive experience across different devices

  • care about loading speed and on-page SEO best practices

Extra points for:

  • experience with SVG animation

  • contributions to open source projects

  • UX design knowledge

  • knowledge of Swiss Design and other abstract influences

  • a rudimentary knowledge of Python, Django, or AWS

  • being a fan of Pink Floyd

On top of that, you...

  • are passionate about making an impact in an early-stage startup with a kickass product

  • are productive, attentive, and self-driven

  • like hacking pet projects, just for fun and kudos

  • have strong communication skills and fluency in English

  • can work in a fully remote environment and embrace asynchronous communication

  • document and test your code

  • are familiar with continuous delivery

  • are familiar with Agile methodologies

Your day at DealTracker

You will be working in a small team of A-players, reporting directly to our Tech Lead, and our CEO. You'll be taking the lead on the front-end side of things. We built a proof of concept using React/redux. You'll be working on turning it into a proper PWA in either React.js or Next.js.

So, on a typical day, you will:

  • build and scale new features on the front-end

  • improve and fix existing functionality

  • take care of your personal staging environment

  • work closely with backend, helping to define the APIs

  • participate in the design and architecture of new features

  • If you know React Native, you could also take part in building our mobile app

Are you the real deal? Let's talk!

If you can build kickass PWAs with Silicon Valley standards and you're up for a challenge building a 10x product alongside a team of A-player hackers, now is the time to apply. You'll be joining us at the perfect time.

We'll hire the best engineer for the job regardless of your location. Timezones are not a problem as long as you're able to overlap with us for 3 hours a day. Our process is super fast, and you'll know our final decision within ten days max, so let's talk!

  • Craft the core user-facing Flip product experience.

    At Flip, we're always looking for top tier frontend engineers and designers to join our core product team. From public pages like listings and search to e-signing lease agreements to guiding an Instant user through a move out, Flip aims to create interfaces that inspire trust and transform the extraordinarily tedious process of moving into something bordering on fun.

    The core experiences you might be working on:

    Taking Flip Instant users from the moment of purchase to move out. You'll create the core experience of receiving a move out package, setting up automated viewings of their apartment, getting notified about services like cleaning, and any necessary communication or documents required along the way.

    The experience of renting a Flip apartment. Interfaces for putting down and managing security deposits, automating rent payments, requesting a service appointment, and even things like renting furniture or putting items in storage are all fair game.

    Our public-facing content and experiences like search, listing pages, Learn content, and building pages. Site speed is an absolute critical measurement for our company, and so you'll work with extreme performance and bundle size constraints.

    The experience of listing an apartment on Flip and reviewing inbound renters. Everything from viewing an initial application with credit and income information, to providing building-specific requirements, documents and paperwork.

    We're looking for engineers that care about design as much as they care about performance. You'll need to have an attention to detail not just for how things look, but also how they feel. For this role, we like to see examples of frontend experiences that were both designed and built by applicants.

    The technologies you'll use are:

    • Javascript (quickly transitioning to Typescript)

    • React and ApolloGraphQL

    • CSS and Sass

    We're looking for engineers with experience, but it doesn't need to be traditional. Experience with our specific stack is useful, but not critical.
