Front End Application Developer

at Privy in Boston, MA   —   Apr 07, 2014   |  
Overview
Privy is looking for a front-end engineer who can round out what is currently a very small engineering team. All the usual benefits and trade-offs for working at relatively early start-ups apply.

Our mission is simple. We’re building a self-service marketing product that lets small businesses tailor their own promotions, and share them with their most relevant networks. By launching promotions from their websites, Facebook pages and other online channels, a small business can better engage and grow these networks over time.

We already have a product with a solid, growing client base (and revenue!). We’ve done the initial ground work, but our product is expanding quickly.

Privy is looking for an engineer that is passionate about front-end product development. We want someone who displays mastery of Javscript, CSS, and HTML. You value snappy UI, efficient code, and beautiful user experiences. Our ideal candidate has a CS background, but we are most interested in your skills and personality.

Of course this is a startup, so we are looking for some of that jack-of-all-trades, help-where-it’s-needed attitude. “Full stack” development experience isn’t a necessity, but a willingness to learn is... and a desire to learn would be better.

Privy is currently a small company and you will play a significant role in building our company culture.
We use a number of community driven, open source frameworks. We would highly encourage you to contribute back to those communities for your own personal (and thus Privy’s) glory and spiritual satisfaction.
