Job Description


Our team is a nimble, multi-functional group of engineers, designers, marketers, data analysts, and a product manager working together to improve on all aspects of our website. We try new things and we learn quickly from our mistakes. The team works to develop new user acquisition channels (Referrals, Podcasts, etc.), optimize our existing channels (e.G. SEO, Paid, Email), increase subscriber retention rates, and improve our checkout process using a product development process rooted in metrics. You'll be a part of a team that's confronting difficult questions related to scale, architecture, and interaction.
What You'll Do
  • Build products and experiences people love: intuitive design, clear user experiences, and actionable data help us to create product features directly rooted in the wants and needs of our users
  • Develop new web pages and new features in our React.Js/Rails web application
  • Take your ideas from concept to reality: use our A/B testing service to test different variations of our pages to experiment, iterate, learn and repeat
  • Be a champion for developing and adhering to engineering standards within your team. We want to build high-quality software that's easy to understand, easy to change and works the way it's supposed to
  • Work closely with our Product, Design, Data Science and Marketing teams to come up with new ideas and bring them to reality
  • Put automated testing, tracking, and monitoring in place to ensure our website is always working as expected
What You'll Need
  • A minimum of 5 years of experience developing web applications using Ruby on Rails and JavaScript, including advanced knowledge of concepts like asynchronous programming, closures, types, and ES6
  • Expertise in HTML & CSS, with a knack for layout, specificity, cross browser compatibility, and accessibility
  • You know your browser APIs well and taking responsibility for optimizing for frontend performance is a challenge you'll gladly accept
  • Experience with frontend frameworks like react.Js or angular.Js
  • Experience with NoSQL (MongoDB) and SQL (Postgres) databases
  • Experience with containerization tools, such as Docker or Kubernetes
What Will Make You Stand Out
  • Experience building simple, efficient software ideally with Golang
  • Excited about the opportunities and challenges of working on projects touching all areas of our codebase and associated microservices
  • BS/MS in Computer Science, Mathematics, or engineering is helpful, but not required
