VICE x Team


VICE’s Front End team is looking for a talented and experienced Senior Front End Engineer to join our Williamsburg office to focus on the development of our editorial properties. The role will have the opportunity to influence a large number of projects that reach across the entire VICE ecosystem. Our technology stack is primarily JavaScript (ES6+ features); Node.js, React, TypeScript; driven by GraphQL. The ideal candidate will be comfortable with a microservices architecture with expert-level knowledge in all aspects of front end web development, along with mentoring a team of talented engineers.


Role x You



  • Implement modern and elegant design patterns as it pertains to feature development and code maintainability.

  • Collaborate on and produce consistently clean and measurably performant code. 

  • Build and maintain reusable javascript components while adhering to coding standards and best practices.

  • Create unit tests using frameworks like karma / mocha / chai / jest.

  • Experience with working with GraphQL, including building and optimizing queries.

  • Intimately familiar with Chrome/Firefox/Safari dev tools.

  • Mentoring engineers as well as interface with other teams within our product and engineering organization.


Qualifications



  • 5+ years of professional development experience.

  • Expert level knowledge of JavaScript (including server-side), ES6+ features, and Redux-type architecture.

  • Experience with NPM and Webpack or Rollup to build and distribute JS modules across multiple applications and code bases.

  • Familiarity with AWS and building large scalable web experiences.

  • Experience with Continuous Delivery and Continuous Integration.

  • Experience utilizing React frameworks such as Next.js.


You have these:



  • Existing mentorship experience is a plus, but not mandatory.

  • Knowledge of UX design, including working with React Storybook is a plus.

  • Experience with agile software development and best practices.


We’d love if you also had:



  • Proficiency working on a fast-paced team, with product owners, designers and other developers.

  • Ability to work autonomously and comfortably on features from start to finish.


We want to find people who believe in our goals and feel inspired enough to grow while they’re here to fill the role, rather than someone who checks the boxes but isn’t invested. We encourage you to apply and show us what you’ve got. 


If you require reasonable accommodation during the application and selection process, please let us know.  We will work together to best meet your needs.
