As a core member of our Experience team, you’re passionate about building digital products people will love. You understand the importance of great visual design, and love transforming mock ups into delightful, interactive experiences. You’re a geek at heart who loves to learn, take on technical challenges, and be empowered in a fast-paced and transparent culture. You're comfortable finding the right tool or pattern for the job, and are willing to push for improvements to the way we work when you feel like there is a better way.

We are looking for a Software Engineer who will be responsible for coding, testing, and deploying customer-facing applications. While this role will be primarily Front End focused, the ideal candidate we’re looking for would be interested in contributing code across the full stack. Our engineering teams work closely with Jetty’s Product Managers to create high quality products for our customers, internal teams, and beyond. This is a technical role expected to engineer, debug, review, and contribute code using modern technology strategies.

In return, Jetty seeks to invest in you. Whether it's by pushing to incorporate a new feature, or evangelizing your favorite framework, we aim to give every engineer room to grow and to empower them to do work they're proud of. Jetty is growing quickly, and there are always new opportunities to make a difference. 

Our Tech Stack: 

  • Current: serverless SPA architecture, built via Webpack + Next.js and served via S3. Technologies include: React, SASS, ESLint, Cypress.js, Nightwatch, CircleCI, various AWS services (S3, Cloudfront, Lambda, etc)
  • Roadmap: Typescript, GraphQL, Apollo

What you will do: 

  • Develop meaningful user experiences ranging from application code to animation
  • Contribute to our core javascript libraries through clean, scalable code
  • Collaborate with product and design teams, lending thoughtful technical insight throughout the product development cycle, e.g. communicating capabilities, alternative solutioning, design feedback
  • Work with our ‘backend’ Core Services engineering team to outline solutions across the full-stack of application development, e.g. defining endpoints, designing payloads
  • Lend your expertise through code reviews and architecture sessions with our growing team of engineers
  • Help evolve our tech stack and style guide by proposing new technologies and advocating for developer experience

Technical Skills:

  • 2+ years of production experience with an API-backed, front-end javascript framework (React preferred)
  • Proficiency in various aspects of UI development, e.g. CSS, responsive interfaces, browser quirks, animation techniques
  • Experience working with UI designers, and translating designs from tools such as Figma, Principle, or Sketch
  • Solid understanding of beyond-the-browser javascript; e.g. build processes, testing frameworks
  • Experience or interest in full stack development
  • Python experience (a plus)

Softer Skills:

  • A well-developed sense of user empathy
  • A strong ability to communicate complex technical concepts to non-technical stakeholders
  • A mastery of all things time management, whether it’s completing work, delivering estimates, or adapting to shifting deadlines
  • The ability to share your hard-earned technical wisdom in a collaborative, low ego environment
  • The desire to communicate proactively and frequently, be it through tickets, documentation, or video calls
  • Enthusiasm, curiosity, and the flexibility to thrive in a start-up atmosphere of constant change and growth with a healthy dose of humor
