Lead Frontend Developer

Action Verb

Remote

We need someone to lead the front end development of our core product, BrickFTP, as well as other projects that are in various stages. We recently transitioned to React for the frontend of BrickFTP, and want someone to take charge of adding new enterprise features, keeping everything modern, and problem solving the unique issues we face as a major file transfer and storage service. And as the frontend team grows, this person should be capable of managing them.

For This Role, We Want To See This Track Record of Results:

  • Experience building and delivering React.js applications that have seen actual production usage.
  • At least 5 years of applicable experience.
  • Strong understanding of the Javascript language itself, including changes in ES8, ES6, as well as recent updates to CSS.
  • Understanding of how to write secure frontend code and an awareness of common web application security vulnerabilities.
  • Testing and the ability to write unit tests/specs (we use popular JavaScript testing frameworks).

Bonus points for making contributions to major open source projects. If you want to keep making open source contributions, we would support that!

About Action Verb

We believe that everyone in the company should have some programming skills. Our customers are primarily engineers, and in order to relate to them and support our products at the highest possible level, we should all be engineers too.

We believe that the best Engineers tend to be polyglots with a wide variety of programming language experience. We don’t hire for specific programming language skills, but rather look for engineers who are fluent in several programming languages. We want our staff to be adaptable and ready to evolve to what’s next.

We believe that allowing and supporting 100% remote work gives us access to great people we wouldn’t otherwise be able to hire. We tend to hire folks who are later in their careers, which means they usually have their family established somewhere. By offering remote work, we can hire the best people, no matter where they’re located.

We believe that the best way we can acquire top talent is by being an amazing place to work. Work from home, travel with the team, and surround yourself with top tier people at Action Verb. Read about everything we’ve done to make working at Action Verb great.

We believe that building great infrastructure and platform products requires a great internal infrastructure. We have Continuous Integration, a full staging environment, and considerable test coverage. We built our own application deployment system. We self-manage our server environment on Amazon Web Services and custom hardware.

We believe in using the right tool for the job. Our core applications are built in Ruby, JavaScript, Java, C++, and PHP. We use Rails, React, Chef, Qt, Jenkins, Github, Honeybadger, CircleCI, Maven, AWS, MySQL, Redis, Memcached, Haml, Sass, and many other exciting open source systems. We don’t want to get stuck in the trap of using a language or a tool just because “that’s how it’s done around here.”

We believe that engineers should support what they build. We expect our teammates to take responsibilty for the engineering decisions they make. If there are performance problems in production, nobody should have to chase anyone down. All engineers participate in a 24/7 on-call rotation and all engineers speak to customers.

We believe in building products that we actually use ourselves. We are our own toughest critics and we put all of our products through their paces every day.
