Job type: Full-time

Category: Software Dev


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!

    What you'll do

    • 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!
