This is an opportunity to not only join an unrivaled company, one that is scaling quickly, but is also a chance for those who desire a leadership role, to pursue that path.

Responsibilities:

    • Lead our front-end web development from start to finish. In many cases you'll have pixel-perfect designs to work from; in others you'll run with back-of-the-napkin sketches
    • Drive the selection and implementation of a JavaScript framework
    • Work closely with our Product and Marketing team members to identify and implement tests and improvements to our user experience

Qualifications & Requirements:

    • 7-10+ years experience developing websites from scratch using JavaScript (ES6), HTML and CSS.
    • You love getting your hands dirty and take ownership and responsibility for products you're working on
    • You're an expert with a front-end framework (e.g. React, Vue.js, etc)
    • You’re comfortable and effective working autonomously on a fully-remote team during US-timezones
    • You’re an exceptional communicator, both verbally and through writing (we’re a remote team and frequently work asynchronously)

What we value:

    • Be a team player
    • Embrace change
    • Advocate for subscribers
    • Communicate clearly

Perks & Benefits:

    • Competitive compensation and equity
    • Unlimited PTO: We are a travel company, after all
    • 401k with a company match
    • Medical, Dental, and Vision: Premium plans for you and your dependents (for US-based employees)
    • Paid Family Leave - 3 months of paid leave for you and your new family
    • Equipment: We'll make sure you have the MacBook or other hardware that'll help you succeed at your job

We're a 100% diverse remote team:

    • Our team is distributed around the globe and as a remote-only company we have all of the infrastructure in place to work well both synchronously and asynchronously including Slack, Zoom, Google Team Drive, Geekbot, etc.
    • Since we don't have any offices, nobody accidentally gets left out while the rest of the team huddles in a conference room or water cooler.

Please let us know by applying. We look forward to receiving your application. Be sure to include any information you think is relevant and why you’d be an excellent fit.
