Lead Front End Engineer (we don’t support IE 6!)

at in New York, NY   —   Jul 09, 2014   |  
The spot:

We are seeking a Lead Front-end Engineer who combines a passion for technology with the skills and intelligence to make our solutions a reality. We work in a fast-paced but casual social environment, where we encourage innovation and participation through blogging, custom tool development, hack-day events and visits from technical and scientific big brains.

You must be a natural-born problem-solver with exceptional hands-on technical skills. Our current systems are predominantly Java-based, leveraging Spring’s Binding framework along with YUI for presentation. We’re on the move to CSS3 via progressive enhancement on the front end.

But enough about the stack – the question is, what are you going to build? We serve a thriving ecosystem of job seekers hoping to discover their next great opportunity, and recruiters and hiring managers seeking the brightest stars in our database for that next great opportunity. Your job will be to help us build highly interactive, visually compelling solutions that will guide our customers to the right opportunities or individuals, and surface and merchandise candidates and careers in the most flattering and authentic light. This is not a job-board development role; this is a chance to create a new product in a category by itself.

Based in SoHo in the heart of downtown New York City, we have an open-plan, Agile workplace. We foster small teams of world-class engineers that can solve problems and innovate at every layer of the stack, and we want you to provide expert guidance and insights to those teams to ensure the usability, quality and performance of our products. We practice continuous integration and peer code reviews and we are experimenting with pair programming, test-driven development, and other extreme programming methodologies. You’ll be on the cutting edge of current software-development best practices and in the position to assist in the introduction of new ones. We’ll provide you with excellent opportunities to learn, teach, and lead.

And you’ll get to pick your side in the age-old debate - Mac or PC.

The skinny:

• You will contribute to the implementation of our highest profile projects
• You will mentor junior engineers
• You will collaborate with your team and superiors in designing new solutions
• You will contribute to the improvement of our continuous integration and testing frameworks
• You will suggest tools, technologies, and best practices to improve our performance and site quality
• You will help us to staff, grow and maintain a world class engineering team
The specs:
You are energized by working in a collaborative environment
You abide by the “best tool for the job” approach to selecting technologies and languages
You are supportive, and able to motivate your peers and yourself to achieve short and long-term goals
You have shipped large projects working as part of a cohesive team, and you can point to them online
You are contributing to an open source project or hacking up a new app sounds like a great extra-curricular activity
You have 3+ years of experience in architecting front-end tiers for high volume websites
You have in-depth knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, JSTL, JSP tags, and associated frameworks
You have site performance profiling and code-tuning expertise
