Front End Software Engineer

Job description

Popular Pays is the leading platform for agile advertising. Advertising is in a moment of transition and we’re betting that the way that work gets done in the future is a powerful mix of creativity + technology. We’ve built the modern approach to advertising: a global network of creators, a platform to streamline operations, and an expert service team to guide you along the way. The results are that our customers' creative gets to market faster, makes a bigger impact, and we add flexibility into their operations.

Popular Pays recently was acquired by Lightricks, Lightricks creates award-winning apps - in the field of image, sound and video processing - used by hundreds of millions of content creators all over the world. We’re building the future of the creator economy together.

Responsibilities

Do you love Javascript and are looking for a new challenge?  You might be perfect for our Front End Software role we are currently looking to fill as we grow our team.

We’re looking for help with our client applications built on the Ember.js framework. If you have professional experience in modern javascript frameworks such as Vue.js, React we are interested in speaking with you, so long as you are excited by the idea of working in the framework. We believe the right person can get up to speed with a new technology and contribute in a meaningful way if the passion to do so is there.

You will be a go-to resource for input on architecture and implementation for front end based features scoped for our projects.

We love design and appreciate code elegance in building web UIs, but your specialty in Javascript could also be used in our scraper application, written on Node.js. The application is responsible for integrating with our social network partner’s APIs and payload normalization and is the backbone of the Popular Pays ecosystem.  

Does this kind of work and responsibility excite you?

Engineering Culture:

Here’s a high-level overview of the core values of our engineering team:

We believe engineering teammates are owners of the Product.

We believe in being lean, scoping projects, shipping continuously, communicating the good and bad.

We believe in failure - it makes us stronger.

We believe in shipping and iteration, not endless deliberation and inaction.

We believe you thrive in a feedback heavy culture.

We are opinionated, but open to ideas.

We believe in writing code that follows existing patterns where applicable and writing code that can be easily understood by the next person that works on it - we favor avoiding complexity over cleverness and over-optimized solutions.

We believe in asking for forgiveness not for permission - autonomy and self-management are important on our lean team.

We're an outcome not an hours motivated organization. We expect our teammates to be productive and active contributors to our business.

Pretty straightforward stuff, but we feel like it’s important to have an identity and practice what we preach.

Requirements

  • Javascript frameworks experience - 5+ years experience (ie. Vue.js, React.js, we use Ember.js)
  • Qunit - We write lots of tests.
