Sked Social helps our customers schedule and manage their content on Instagram and other social media platforms.
We work with customers from small businesses through to global brands, and everything in between. We're a startup with a team of ~25, profitable and scaling up our offering to customers.
We are looking for an experienced front-end engineer to be part of our team.
Our front-end is currently Angular1 with some React mixed in. We're looking for someone who will be able to help us progressively transition to React, as well as make some updates to the existing Angular1 code when it's not time effective to switch over (yet).
More broadly, we operate on a MEAN stack, so experience with NodeJS is helpful but not required.
Our iOS and Android apps are React Native, so experience with RN is also helpful but not required.
We have a fully remote team distributed around the world. We work hard to keep our customers around the globe happy, and we're proud of our success over the last 5+ years.
You'll be collaborating particularly with our head of engineering based in US Eastern timezone (that's the more important one!).
The core mission of our engineers is to build a product that our customers will love.
You will work hard to create new features, refactor code, and build new services entirely in collaboration with your engineering colleagues and our product team.
You'll be the owner of all things front end, from build processes to deployment.
You will bring your past experience to help us iterate rapidly and build for the future.
We'll know you are successful when you:
On the front end, we are mostly AngularJS (1.x) with Gulp for our build process.
There are some existing React components mixed in, but the expectation of this role will be to work with the product and engineering teams to identify the best path to progressively migrate to only React, refactoring and updating existing code along the way as necessary.
On the backend, we use NodeJS and MongoDB, with a bit of Redis and Elasticsearch.
Our servers are all in AWS, and we make use of tech like S3 and Cloudfront to make DevOps easy for delivering the front end.
It'd be great if you have experience working in an agile/kanban environment with Git for SCM (branching, merging, pull requests – we use GitFlow as our workflow).
Experience designing and writing unit tests within frameworks such as Mocha and Karma is also helpful.
Of course, you should be comfortable working with a command line (Unix/Linux, SSH).
You're a fit for this role if you:
Some understanding or experience in social media management and/or social networks (from a business users' perspective) is a plus, but definitely not required.
