Recount Media is a media startup backed by A-list investors including USV and True Ventures focused on high quality journalism with a simple mission – to deliver the news that matters in good faith and without wasting your time or insulting your intelligence. In our fractured news environment we want to reimagine how people find and consume news making it easier than ever to stay informed.. This is a fully remote role; we expect to have offices at some point post-COVID but remote will remain an option.

About the Role
We are looking for an experienced frontend software engineer with a focus on design and UX to build out our news product. As our first dedicated frontend engineer you'll guide the development of both our consumer-facing website and our internal publishing tools. You'll work closely with designers and editors to build experiences that are intuitive and engaging.

Core Responsibilities

    • Contribute to the design and development of new features in our website and publishing tools
    • Help define the best-practices and culture of our growing team
    • Work with a variety of technologies to build new features and products

Who You Are

    • Experienced in writing and architecting client-side web applications
    • You aren't afraid to learn new things or dip your toe into new areas
    • You are outspoken about your opinions on software development
We care deeply about building a diverse team, and supporting every team member in their career and skill growth. We are dedicated to creating and maintaining a respectful workplace that values everyone on our team bringing their whole selves to work. We are committed to paying market-competitive compensation.
