Are you self-motivated? Results-driven? Do you want to be on the ground floor of building out a tech stack and a tech team? Yes?! Then we want to talk to you. Here at FIGS, we are building out a software engineering team to build and extend our growing e-commerce platform. We are looking for an exceptional engineer who can help us architect and build our frontend stack. Our current frontend experience is built on Shopify, but we have a mandate to grow on top of and beyond it.
We know we are going to use React. We are leaning towards working in Typescript. And we are hoping we build it out with a GraphQL presentation layer. It will probably be built with Node. Beyond that, everything is up for grabs. Sass or CSS Modules? Let's debate. A PWA architecture? Let's explore. Writing our site’s build process in Haskell? LOL, no. We have limits.
Does this sound interesting? Keep reading.
What you'll do:

  • Partner with our Product, Design, and Backend Engineering teams to: * Define and build out our core theming and reusable component libraries

  • Define the common SPA architecture we will use to build frontend applications

  • Define and help implement the core data models that will power our presentation layer APIs

  • Use what you have built to build cool internal and customer-facing frontend applications


  • Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent work experience or education

  • 3+ years working on frontend applications

  • Strong computer science fundamentals

  • A preference for TDD-style development over YDD (YOLO driven development)

  • Extensive experience with Vanilla™ JavaScript

  • A commanding knowledge of HTML, CSS, and building rich user experiences with them. (e.g., What’s the box model?)

  • Prior experience with SPA frameworks like React, Vue, Ember, or Angular

  • Experience using Node.js in a production environment

  • Awareness of cross-browser compatibility issues and client-side performance considerations

  • Awareness of common web security vulnerabilities and how to avoid them

  • Demonstrated ability to architect scalable and maintainable frontend JavaScript applications

Bonus points for:

  • Familiarity with DevOps technologies like Docker, Vagrant, Terraform and Kubernetes

  • Experience with building and maintaining traditional Shopify sites and experience working on Shopify Apps and Themes

  • Experience setting up CI/CD build processes and pipelines

  • A desire to work with statically typed languages like Typescript

  • Familiarity with server-side MVC web application frameworks, like Ruby on Rails or Django

Other must haves:

  • Desire to learn: we are not looking for specific experience with our tech stack—just the willingness and sufficient experience (with an equivalent stack) to pick it up fast

  • Excellent communication skills

  • Desire to collaborate: we work in small cross-functional teams and as individual engineers. We are not afraid of challenges and working together to tackle them.

  • Positive attitude: we are self-starters who love to solve problems with technologies

  • A strong work ethic, with integrity and entrepreneurial mindset

  • 100% Awesome. Like our scrubs

A little bit about us…
The $50 billion medical apparel industry is antiquated, highly fragmented and, until FIGS, was driven solely by low-cost providers offering a limited selection of poor quality products sold through third party distributors. FIGS is revolutionizing the medical apparel industry by creating the highest quality medical apparel in the world and by selling directly to medical professionals through our branded ecommerce site.
FIGS’ foundation is built on product quality, and we have a relentless focus on three key areas: fabric, fit and function. We developed our proprietary, performance-oriented fabric technology to meet the demands of the medical profession. FIGS’ Technical Collection fabric is wrinkle resistant, stain and liquid repellant, moisture-wicking, odor proof, lightweight, breathable and offers four-way stretch. Our designs are tailored, sophisticated and innovative, incorporating features such as yoga waistbands, smart storage (pockets, zippers, hidden pockets) and inspirational sayings inside each garment that appeal to modern healthcare professionals.
By offering a branded and customer-centric online shopping experience, we are changing how medical professionals buy their workwear. Through our website, social media, and participation in medical conferences and events, we have built a strong following within the medical community and a meaningful connection with our customers, which allows us to understand their needs and to ensure that FIGS is continuously improving and innovating.
FIGS’ Threads for Threads initiative is central to our mission. FIGS has donated hundreds of thousands of scrubs to healthcare providers in need in over 35 countries.
