Front-end Developer

Website Nightwatch

SEO performance tracker and analytics tools

Overview

Collectively, we want to bring forward-thinking and innovative solutions to the world. We are a bootstrapped company that believes the future belongs to smaller companies that don’t subscribe to the 9-to-5 corpo way of doing things. We believe that the Silicon Valley era is over, and we are building a business which allows us to enjoy the freedom of working remotely where each of us has the autonomy and flexibility to have a high impact on the world with our work.

We’re looking for an experienced developer to become a part of our close-knit remote engineering team and help build high quality products and tools. You should have plenty of experience building advanced SPA web applications, having a knack for good UX, be a master in JavaScript and CSS, being able to inspect browser performance bottlenecks, adopt any kind of modern front-end framework, implement responsive visualizations, write tests and occasionally touch back-end code if needed.

If you are a positive-oriented hacker who does not fit the traditional internet company structure, and enjoys working in a connected team of developers who care deeply about writing clean, maintainable, and reasonably tested code, this job might be the right fit for you. We are not looking for someone who regularly switches companies, or who is only here for a huge salary. Our mission is to develop a strong team that shares our values of personal growth, education, compassion and true friendship.

Requirements

  • Advanced knowledge of layout libraries, such as Bootstrap, Tailwind CSS,…
  • Excellent sense for good UX practices,
  • Solid knowledge of Ember.js or exceptional willingness to learn it,
