Senior Frontend Engineer


Remote (USA timezones)

As a Senior Frontend Engineer, you will be a key contributor to the growth, innovation, and continued improvement of Scott's Cheap Flights. You will be collaborating with a lean team to write code designed to scale.

In the short term, you will:

  • Become familiar with our code base, code style, tech stack, development and deployment process, and our project management process
  • Individually build and test frontend components as well as work with a cross-functional pod to support development of new features
  • Refactor, QA, and improve existing code

In the long term, you will:

  • Be an expert with all of our tooling: Bugsnag, FullStory, HotJar, Metabase, Heroku, New Relic, and more
  • Bring creative solutions to projects to support the continual improvement of Scott's Cheap Flights
  • Take ownership of end to end feature and product development and help scale our frontend
  • Serve as an advocate for engineering best practices and help the team explore and implement new technology

What you bring to the table:

  • Experience working on new product development
  • Hands on expertise with JavaScript frameworks, and ideally, an affinity for React
  • Basic Rails understanding, or a strong interest in learning
  • Experience writing automated unit tests, with bonus points for integrated and functional testing experience
  • Templating and styling expertise, developing websites and apps from scratch using HTML5 and CSS with bonus points for any styled components in React
  • You care about performance, usability, and accessibility across all devices
  • An interest in mobile development is beneficial, but not required
  • Empathy and passion to build production-ready features
  • Clear and earnest written and verbal communication skills
  • High standards for yourself and the code you write
  • Flexibility and an open-mindedness and willingness to learn

Technologies we use:

  • Ruby on Rails is our primary server framework
  • React is our primary front end development framework
  • Postgres and Redis are our primary storage engines
  • Heroku for deployments and infrastructure
  • GitHub for source code management
  • Circle CI for continuous integration
  • Notion for documentation, collaboration, and project management
  • Conspicuously absent from the above is Jira ;)

Why you might love working here:

  • 100% remote work environment, so go ahead and bring your dog to work or wear your PJ's to the office
  • Open vacation policy, with a 3 week minimum!
  • Comprehensive health, vision, and dental insurance
  • 401(k) with a 5% match
  • Up to 12-weeks of paid family leave
  • Meetup meals when you cross paths with a co-worker
  • Continuing education & development reimbursement
  • Yearly team retreat (this year we went to Riviera Maya!)
  • Challenging problems to solve and an awesome team to collaborate with every single day

We want you to bring your whole self to work every single day.
