Job Description

As a Web Engineer you will help build and optimize web technology that delivers billions of page views to our client's website. In this role, you'll be responsible for evolving our current UI practices, while creating the next generation of front end on a cross-functional and fast-moving team. Our web engineering team has recently migrated all of our legacy JavaScript to a modern ES6 build process and are working to adopt ReactJS and progressive SPA practices in place of server-side rendered experiences. We are a test-and-learn culture that allows our front-end engineering and UX team members to launch A/B experiments that impact hundreds of thousands of users per day.
You'll have the opportunity to work with our product and UX specialists to turn mock-ups into features and assist product and technical leadership in project planning and influencing technical decisions. You will build and deliver consistently performing UI's and abstracting these into reusable patterns.
As a member of the web team, you will be responsible for the delivery of high-velocity, high-performing web experiences that have been thoroughly tested and built to the highest standards of our product team.

To be successful, you'll need:
:2-5 years experience building applications and services in JavaScript, Node.js, and Java
:Experience building and sharing JavaScript libraries and modules for a feature-driven engineering team
:Strong knowledge of front-end web languages (HTML, CSS, JavaScript)
:Experience with backend Java, with ability to navigate old Java code to be able to rebuild in more modern language
:Expertise on at least one client-side JavaScript framework (Experience building React applications preferred)
:Expertise in developing complex UIs that leverage RESTful JSON APIs
:Driving opinions on responsive design techniques, and progressive enhancement
:Strong written and interpersonal communication skills
:Creativity, fearlessness and an unwavering commitment to putting the customer first

This position is full stack but leaning front end. It involves about 60% front end work and 40% backend.
