Resume Search.  ‘Find and Engage the People you’ll Hire’
Helping people to get jobs is hard, even in today’s market. Hundreds of thousands of recruiters sift through millions of resumes. Our vision is to use technology to disrupt the status quo and enable recruiters to be more effective. We will use the right tool for the right situation (e.g., machine learning and other automation techniques) to offload the repetitive, time-consuming tasks so that recruiters can concentrate on customer service. For example, our system will match the best candidates to each job, based on both skills and culture fit. Recruiter will receive recommendations, rather than having to manually search.

There are numerous opportunities for building new systems and product features, but we need talented, passionate people working together to make this happen. We are looking to grow our teams with people who share our energy and enthusiasm for creating the best experience for job seekers.

Your job.

As a software engineer focused on user interfaces and the overall user experience, you will be expected to build new UIs, create reusable components, and incorporate new front-end technologies into our stack (e.g., remote-rendered UI plugins). You will work with Product Managers, UX Designers and Researchers, and other Software Engineers to deliver code frequently and experiment (e.g., A/B Testing) relentlessly. Our UI framework is based on React,  Javascript, and Java. We’ve had to invent new experiences and interaction models, as existing design patterns may sufficiently raise the bar for our customers. If you enjoy the collaborative culture of a start-up, are looking for opportunities to grow, and want to have fun while making history – join us!

About you.

Responsibilities

  • Work alongside other software engineers and UX designers to design, build, and maintain UIs that enable recruiters to find, connect with, and hire job seekers.

  • Continually improve code quality, performance (i.e., reduce latency), and reliability in our products, with a focus on front-end technologies.

  • Collaborate with Product Managers and QA to ensure that our products and features provide the best possible customer experience

  • Evaluate front-end technologies and contribute to decision-making conversations about applying them to our products.

 

We're looking for someone who 

  • Is passionate about software quality, improving the design/development process, and constantly raising the bar on customer experience and usability.

  • Thrives in a highly collaborative, cross-functional environment

  • Has a strong interest in learning to understand and modify backend systems in addition to the front-end.

  • Can drive a culture of usability and customer-centric design throughout the team

 

Requirements 

  • 5+ years professional experience in front-end engineering, including experience working on at least one public-facing product with a global presence and significant traffic.

  • Self-directed and capable of working effectively in a highly innovative and fast-paced environment.

  • Significant practical experience with client-side JavaScript, CSS, component-driven UI development, and front-end tooling. While comfort with “vanilla” JS is a must, experience with TypeScript is a plus.

  • Ability to effectively collaborate with and influence members of a full-stack product team. 

  • A demonstrated pattern of staying abreast of modern front-end technologies and practices, while being judicious about introducing new technology to existing codebases.

  • Experience providing front-end engineering guidance to a team and being accountable for the results.
