Philosophie - Los Angeles, CA 90035

Posted a month ago

Immediate Opening!
We're gearing up to help our client (a well-known technology company), design a system that will support hundreds of complex business workflows. We're seeking a front-end developer with several years of experience who enjoys rapid prototyping in React. You will be working with a UX designer to quickly and iteratively prototype a system using our client's proprietary system. You will work onsite at our client's office.
We're looking for someone who can work onsite in Los Angeles for at least 4 weeks, with a possibility of extension. When applying, please include work samples.
You are a front-end engineer who enjoys rapid design prototyping. You are comfortable being the sole engineer on a collaborative, multi-disciplinary team. You delight in building excellent products, not just excellent code. You aspire to collaborate with a team/client to take new products from idea and vision to functional code.
This is an exciting time for Philosophie. We’re helping world-class enterprises and start-ups effectively use new technologies. We're looking for someone who is available to work from our client's office in Los Angeles.
Please share your Linkedin or a resume, along with a link to work samples. Please provide context for the work samples you've provided, including any technologies used.

At Philosophie, we love making things. We are a diverse team of designers, engineers, and product strategists. With different backgrounds and skillsets, we come together to make useful technology. Our clients (Fortune 500 to startups) come to us with early stage product ideas; and we prototype those ideas to life. Teams make decisions collaboratively and lead clients to successful outcome. We’ve been around for almost a decade, but we still apply a startup mentality to everything we do. We work out of our beautiful, creatively inspired offices in Los Angeles and New York.
Our people describe our culture as caring, collaborative, experimental, and ethical. We are proud to have received Inc.'s Best Workplaces award, the Healthy Mothers' Workplace award, and twice recognized in Inc.'s 5000 Fastest Growing Companies.
At Philosophie, we believe that different perspectives lead to better ideas, and better ideas lead to better products.
