Senior Front-End Engineer

Twilio is looking for a full-stack developer to join the team that drives twilio.com and all other digital properties. In partnership with the brand design team, the Marketing Engineering team builds flagship collateral to help articulate our API products to other developers.

The team experiments in implementations involving dynamic SVG animation and rendering, deep content interactivity, and live demos integrated into collateral that make phones ring. The right candidate is someone looking to work in a high-velocity environment and constantly pushing the boundary of what's available on the web.

About the job:

  • You drive full-stack implementation on our digital properties. You bend HTML, CSS, Javascript, and PHP, and data stores to do your bidding.
  • You're driven to iterate. Twilio ships code every six hours. You read that as a challenge.
  • You love building pages that deliver the best user experience on any modern browser. You love front end frameworks, but use them sparingly.

Responsibilities:

  • Author fast-rendering reusable components using HTML/CSS.
  • Design and build a page to help communicate various parts of our brand and messaging.  
  • Play well with others. Collaborate across the company and interact with our customers (software engineers) to define, design and ship new stuff.
  • Juggle multiple projects and stay on top of tight deadlines in a fast-paced environment.  Your turnaround time will be days to weeks for projects, and you will keep projects moving quickly through the pipeline.  
  • Drive the front-of-the-funnel engagement through user activation, as well as ensuring that all things we ship are compatible and usable cross-platform.
  • Provide leadership and guidance to the Marketing Engineering teams and drive/grow processes and best-practices for a rapidly expanding team.
  • Be the technical eyes & ears of the brand team to inform on best new technology & implementation ideas.

Requirements:

  • Experience working in a high-velocity environment where new pages are being cut on a weekly basis.
  • 3+ years building rich, high fidelity front-end web experiences in collaboration with visual designers
  • 3+ years of experience in full stack engineering in PHP or Python - must have a proven track record implementing & maintaining large-scale deployments involving client-side and server-side interaction
  • Familiarity with MongoDB and MySQL
  • Strong understanding of object-oriented programming and build patterns common to web technology stacks
  • Experience working on a production pipeline from concept to engineering handoff; you love shipping beautiful products.
  • You have a honed attention to detail. You sweat the little things.
  • You are obsessed about making user interfaces look right and work right. You dig the science of user experience and have opinions.
  • You love to make an impact and thrive in small, collaborative, energetic teams.
  • You communicate well out loud, on paper and in code.
  • CS background or comparable in-field experience
