Frontend / Javascript Engineer

Ranker - Los Angeles, CA

Posted a month ago

We are currently looking for a full time Frontend / Javascript Engineer to join our growing team Los Angeles based team. This is a great opportunity to work on a leading, high traffic site (over 60 million unique visits a month).

Despite the immense traffic we generate, we do all this with a small, talented team of dedicated software engineers who love working with interesting, complex projects. We are now looking to expand this team to North Carolina as we continue to scale out operations. As part of the Frontend team you’ll be building and optimizing front-end implementations of various desktop and mobile web properties, with a heavy skew to Javascript projects. You will also be expected to take part in building our stack for the future via recommendations, implementation of new technology and optimizations, which combined, will continue to keep us ahead of the curve on load speed, paint and memory performance.

What’s in it for you:
  • Work on a very high-traffic platform, solving unique challenges only seen on sites of this scale.
  • Collaborate in a team environment, with a variety of developers across the United States.
  • Contribute directly to the technology, processes and methodology used to solve problems day-to-day.
  • Very competitive compensation including meaningful equity in a profitable, mid-stage technology company.
  • Fully-paid medical, plus heavily subsidized voluntary dental and vision plans.
  • 10 paid holidays, plus additional days of paid time off per year.
  • Casual workplace with a fully stocked kitchen including free snacks, soda, Perrier, Mexican Coca. Cola; we also do catered lunches and breakfast weekly, and free massages every other week.
  • Located conveniently in the Mid-Wilshire district, minutes from Beverly Hills, Miracle Mile, and the 10 Freeway.
Who we believe will do great in this role:
Besides the usual skill set for a Frontend Engineer (i.e. competency in Javascript, HTML, CSS), you MUST have:

  • At least 3 years of commercial frontend software engineering experience.
  • Extensive working knowledge of hand-coded, standards-based, object-oriented Javascript.
  • Experience with REST APIs, and/or social network APIs.
  • Experience building complex HTML layouts by hand, without a grid system.
  • A Bachelors in Computer Science or equivalent academic background (although not a deal-breaker).
Bonus points if you have:
  • Work experience in an Internet startup, particularly in SEO-driven or Ad-driven industries (ie online content, ad tech, social media, etc).
  • Expert knowledge and extensive experience in one or more of the following domains: HTML/CSS/Javascript.
  • Experience working in a high-traffic environment or with optimizing code for performance, paint or memory use.
  • Working knowledge of advanced CSS concepts such as BEM, OOCSS and SASS.
  • Working knowledge of Object Literal, Module Pattern, ES6 or ES20xx.
  • Experience using Webpack, NPM or Yarn.
  • Experience with setting up and using Javascript unit test environments.
  • Expert knowledge of Mobile Web environments and the complexities and inconsistencies the platform brings.
