Front End / Full-Stack Engineer

| Boston
We’re looking for a hungry and highly-motivated front end or full-stack engineer to join our small team and contribute to the development of a new product through their creativity, design, and coding skills. As an early hire on a brand new technology team, you will have an immediate impact in growing our online consumer business through rapidly iterating on solutions to the problem of “making Lovepop a habit” - fundamentally improving our site experience as well as working to test and build new systems from scratch. This isn’t a superficial ecommerce marketing problem - you’ll be working to fundamentally reshape (and rebuild) the way people give to one another.
Here at Lovepop we believe data is king - we measure everything and test heavily. You will be working closely with product and marketing stakeholders to learn what metrics drive a high-growth consumer company to be successful and how a wide array of technologies can be integrated to quickly make a huge difference.

Our technology stack is microservice based with back-end services in Clojure and Rails and front-end single page applications in a variety of modern front-end frameworks (we believe in using the right tool for the right job). We use AWS heavily and are building for high-availability and operational maturity from day one. We approach our development with a strong eye towards TDD on both the front-end and back-end.

Responsibilities Include:

  • Own key functionality in our technical platform through its entire lifecycle (working with product/stakeholders to flesh out definition, architect, discuss design trade-offs and technology decisions, build it in a principled TDD manner, own its release and maintenance)
  • Bring your expertise in a bunch of cool technologies/architectures. We are still a young team and are looking for people passionate about technology who can contribute to setting and solidifying our technical direction for years to come
  • Ship code - you should be someone who has a history of driving projects to completion in quick, iterative ways

You'll be great if you:

  • Have a background in any of: Front-end web development including modern web frameworks (React, Ember, etc.), Full-stack API and web development, basic knowledge of SQL and data architecture, UI/UX with a strong eye for usability and always putting the customer first, CSS / HTML and responsive design concerns
  • Have a strong understanding of common development patterns, data structures, and algorithms (e.g. all that CS101 stuff)
  • Are strong at communicating both with a highly technical engineering team and business partners
  • Are looking for a job where you work on an exciting and tangible consumer product that your friends and family will understand (and love)

Requirements:

  • Undergrad or graduate degree, CS degree strongly preferred
  • 2+ years of software development experience, ideally on a fast-moving lean/agile development team
  • Have owned, and succeeded at delivering, a key component or system for a product that was successfully launched

At Lovepop, we believe that relationships are the most important things in our lives and people respond to things that are unexpected, personal. We build stronger relationships through products that let truly let you connect with people you care for.
