Junior Front End Engineer
Kirkland, WA /
Who is Wyze?
Come and be a part of what GeekWire calls a top 100 “most popular and trending” Pacific Northwest tech company at one of Built-in-Seattle’s “100 Best Places to work in Seattle 2021.”
Wyze’s mission is to make great technology accessible to everyone because we believe that when great technology is accessible, curiosity thrives! Founded just over three years ago, Wyze started out as a smart camera company, has since branched out into the entire smart home ecosystem.
Our headquarter is in Kirkland, WA, an outstanding city just east of downtown Seattle and nestled around beautiful Lake Washington. We also have offices in Beijing and Shenzhen, China!
At the announcement of the pandemic reaching US borders, Wyze employees quickly adapted to WFH setups and we, as well as any new hires, will continue to thrive from the safety of our homes until we can make a safe return to work in our new, COVID-conscious office space.
This role is based full-time at HQ and we are happy to help new folks relocate to this wonderful, tech-savvy city!
A Look Inside the Role:
The Junior Front-End Engineer will play a key role as Wyze Commerce expands and pushes traditional “eCommerce” boundaries. This role will suit someone looking to gain experience in front end development. You will be tasked with building product and content pages that will be served to millions of visitors, as well as developing parts of our design system. We work in a constantly evolving work environment where being focused, dynamic, and thinking outside of the box will be vital for the success of this role. Our team works closely together across multiple subject areas (business, design, and development) but we do not believe in micromanagement so being autonomous is key. This is a phenomenal opportunity to become familiar with development workflow as well as work with our other developers and managers to expand your knowledge.
