Job Description

Job Description

At Optimizely, the Frontend Application is the front lines of the user experience of Optimizely's platform and our ambition is to become the most user-friendly optimization platform in the world. This is an exciting opportunity for a frontend engineer to do work spanning all of Optimizely's product lines, including experimentation (web, full stack, mobile, and over-the-top-device), personalization, and recommendations.

Our stack: We build with React and manage state with NuclearJS, our open-source Flux implementation using Immutable.js data structures. We write ES2015 and leverage Webpack and Babel to deliver an application that is written with clean code and is performantly delivered to our users. Our React components and Sass code are reusable and generic, and live standalone in the freely available OUI.

We are looking for a Frontend Engineer to lead efforts in scaling both our application and our growing frontend team.

Why is this exciting for you?

* You believe that you can magnify the productivity of frontend engineers around you by investing in the proper tools, technologies, and patterns.
* You have a passion for taking ambiguous large scale problems and architecting a solution from the ground up, setting the path for engineers to build on top of the groundwork that you construct.
* You are a strong engineer who deeply understands the browser and its runtime, the internals of JavaScript frameworks, and the life of an API request from end-to-end. You can articulate these technical topics to your colleagues.
* You are excited by the idea of rallying engineers around you to solve a deep customer problem, even when no one asked you to.

What you will be doing

* Leading the design and architecture of the frontend application, ensuring that we consistently improve our platform so we can deliver features quickly with high reliability and scalability.
* Leveraging your experience to mentor junior developers on how to think about component design, data modeling, and system architecture to take an ambiguous product request to a concrete, testable solution.
* Monitoring the latest and greatest frontend trends to understand what the team can benefit from.
* Pioneering new frontend initiatives and championing them to the rest of the frontend team.
* Working with product managers and designers to implement novel, easy-to-use solutions to complex technical problems.
