Job Description

Tumblr launched in 2007 with the belief that people need a place to say what they want, be who they want, and connect over what they love. We continue to build out Tumblr as a platform for free expression, individuality, and human connection. That's why we need smart, humble, funny people to keep Tumblr growing. We're big enough to give you the resources you need and still small enough that you can work on things that matter. Come work with us.

* Recommend modifications to processes and procedures, and contribute to best practices, architecture and implementations


* Solve challenging performance and reliability issues



Who we're looking for

An ideal team member is someone with:

* Strong JavaScript, CSS3, and HTML5 fundamentals and an understanding of how web browsers work


* An ability to drive projects independently


* Dreams to innovate and bring new things into the world


* A strong sense of pragmatism and the ability to decide what's "good enough" (and when to iterate)


* Working knowledge of modern API design patterns and principles


* An understanding of code quality, unit test coverage, and site performance


* Motivation to directly improve the business's bottom line


* Empathy and the desire to elevate those around them


* The belief that it is just as much about the journey as the destination
