ABOUT THE TEAM AND ROLE
The Tech team at theSkimm is a group of experienced, resourceful programmers who build tools throughout the tech stack, often connecting components together in innovative ways to maximize scalability and maintainability. At theSkimm, engineers work in lockstep with product managers, designers, analysts, and key business stakeholders to devise project plans that prioritize improving our audience's experience while balancing frequent iterations and thoughtful source code changes. Our mission is to enable our partners across the company, from Editorial and Audio to Marketing and Advertising, to achieve their goals with the best systems and processes we can offer. We build, share knowledge across departments, and learn quickly so we can take best advantage of what's coming.
As we grow, we're looking for an experienced mentor and programmer to be responsible for our frontend web tools - both externally-facing sites and internally-facing systems. Reporting to our Frontend Manager, you'll be responsible for working alongside product, design and other teams to help define new components and refine existing ones as we advance on an aggressive product roadmap.
WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR
  • 4-6+ years of industry experience building fast, reliable, scalable web-based applications
  • Experience with modern web technologies, e.g. ES6, Babel, React, Redux
  • Experience with CI/CD techniques and tools, including CircleCI, GitHub Actions, and the related processes that support them
  • A commitment to building the best user experience through innovation and attention to detail
  • An empathetic mentorship style that encourages open communication and trust
  • Ability to thrive in a dynamic, fast-paced, collaborative, and high-growth environment
  • Facility in presenting and discussing the trade-offs in employing different engineering solutions to a problem, valuing pragmatism over idealism
WHAT WOULD SET YOU APART
  • Experience developing server-side components that support your applications, powered by programming languages such as Javascript/Node, Ruby/Rails, Python, or PHP
  • Experience working in an Agile environment (Scrum)
  • Knowledge of and experience with isomorphic React principles
  • A history of leading and guiding high-performing technical teams
  • Familiarity and enthusiasm for theSkimm: a passion for our audience and mission
WHAT WE OFFER
  • Comprehensive insurance plans, commuter benefits and 401(k) starting on your first day
  • Competitive salary & equity packages
  • Flexible vacation policy and generous holiday observances
  • One Medical Membership
  • Gym membership reimbursement
  • Complimentary access to theSkimm's growing suite of membership products
  • The opportunity to be part of a values-driven, hardworking and diverse group of people building a membership company that makes it easier to live smarter
