Our newest client, a rapidly expanding social media platform, is actively looking to hire a Staff Software Engineer to join their incredibly talented team.

With the goal of reinventing the way we interact with each other, this exciting new platform, already boasting upwards of 35 million users, requires an experienced engineer who knows the intricacies of JavaScript like no one else. As Staff Software Engineer, you will be responsible for all manner of things across the stack, from building out web-based APIs to turning wireframes into web pages.

The ideal candidate for this role will possess the following qualifications:

  • B.S. in Computer Science or a similar technical field
  • 5+ years' experience as a software engineer
  • Extensive knowledge of Frontend technologies like HTML5, CSS3, and (most importantly) JavaScript
  • Proficiency in at least one JavaScript framework/library, ideally React.js
  • Have experience working with Node.js
  • Ability to communicate both with fellow engineers, as well as non-technical individuals (i.e. Product Managers)

Compensation for this role will go to about $180,000 base salary, with benefits such as equity, unlimited vacation, and all the free snacks you can eat!
