About the Opportunity

We’re looking for a Front End Engineer to join our team as our second full-time engineering hire. As a Front End Engineer at Joshin, you’ll do a little bit of everything, and it’s all in the name of making life a little bit easier for families with special needs and the caregivers providing these families with services. A typical day at Joshin… there’s no such thing as a typical day here! We’re continuously pushing solutions to new problems, rapidly iterating on existing features in use today, dreaming up what we can build tomorrow that will have an even greater impact, and getting our hands dirty wherever work is needed along the way. We’re a small tight-knit, scrappy team, looking to bring on a pragmatic problem solver with an eye for design and experience who puts our customers first and asks for permission later.

Links to your github and other open source repositories of your work are appreciated.

  • Collaborate closely with a small team to rapidly iterate, plan, build, and deliver features and fixes

  • Explore a broad landscape of problems, and apply your skills to add as much value as possible (feature development, testing, automation, analytics, reporting, assisting operational teams)

Who We’re Looking for

  • Entrepreneurial minded individual who sees the big picture
  • Exceptional collaboration and communication, we move fast and need to stay aligned
  • Team player who is willing to jump out of your lane to help others, and willing to ask for help from others
  • Scrappy and gritty, you get excited about diving into difficult abstract problems, and keep an eye out for the simplest solution
  • Strong core engineering concepts, understanding good software architecture/design, writing modular and testable code
  • Understanding of the full web stack, from quirks of cross-browser compatibility, to server-side scalability

Preferred Qualifications and Experience

  • 3+ years of front end or full stack application development, preferably with React
  • Experience working in a start-up environment
  • Proficiency on the front end: JavaScript, React, Typescript, HTML5, CSS3
  • Bonus! Proficiency on the back end: Node.js, Typescript
  • Bonus! Infrastructure and mobile experience: React Native, AWS, DynamoDB, Lambda, Serverless

What We Offer

  • Competitive salary
  • Paid time-off
  • Flexibility
  • Working at an emerging company early
  • We’ll leverage your passion and experience to make an impact
  • We are a casual group, who work hard and celebrate every milestone we achieve as a team
  • And more…
