WHAT YOU'LL DO:
- Tackle problems on the boundary of software, hardware, and the real world.
- Own front-end development for customer-facing portions of our core product and marketing activities
- Work across multiple teams, including growth marketing, product management, engineering, design, medical, and operations; utilize your background in A/B, user flow testing and managing dynamic content
- You’ll expand to work with Forward’s design team, translating mocks to premium, responsive UI including performant animations across browsers and platforms
- You’ll develop reusable libraries and components useful across all teams at Forward
- Work with top-flight software and hardware engineering talent from places like Google, Amazon, Nvidia, Palantir, and NASA JPL.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR:
- Impact - You’re deeply mission-driven and you think there’s more to life than software that enables puppy ears to be superimposed on photos. Although we concede those are cute.
- UI/UX Experience - You have rapid prototyping experience, as well as some formal training or professional experience in design/animation and a strong portfolio of good-looking, high-performance webpages.
- Product passion - You care about the bits you ship ending up in users’ hands. You don’t really need a product manager because you’re basically one yourself.

- Team player - You know how to make those around you better and feed off their energy. You take care of your teammates.
- Curiosity - You like to mess around with computer vision, hardware hacking, or bioinformatics in your free time? You made your own smart mirror? Boy have we got some fun things for you…
- Familiarity with one or more major frameworks preferred (React.js, Vue.js, Backbone.js, Angular, Ember, etc.)
- Experience with and opinions about complex design systems. You’re familiar with a constellation of tools such as Sketch, Zeplin, and Photoshop.
