Findery: Front end Developer

Posted by | September 13, 2012 | Web Pro Job Tips


Location: San Francisco, CA


Findery is seeking an early team member to work on our front-end web
interfaces. You’ll implement functionality and design on both desktop
and mobile, and you’ll collaborate with another front-end engineer, our
product team, and backend API developers to create a polished web
experience to match our native mobile ones.
About Findery
We’re a small team based in an awesome office in San Francisco’s
Hayes Valley neighborhood and want to meet creative people eager to help
others share the places that matter to them.
Founded by Caterina Fake, chairman of Etsy and co-founder of Flickr and Hunch, Findery
lets people create, share, and discover notes about the places around
them. We want to build something that millions of people will use and
love. We want people to put our company name on their license plates; to make cakes with our logo on them;
and to meet on Findery, fall in love, and live happily ever after.
We’ve built something like this before, and it was one of the most
fulfilling experiences of our lives. We’re doing it again.
Who we’re looking for
We’re looking for people who have a reputation for building cool
things, a knack for learning and reaching just outside their comfort
zone, and a passion for creating a virtual space that will foster
real-world experiences. Finally, we’re hoping to hire people with the
confidence to voice opinions and offer help, but have the humility to
welcome opinions and ask for help.
Plus, you oughta be fun to be around.
Preferred Skills:
• You have 3+ years of writing expert code in HTML, CSS, and
especially Javascript. Plus experience with jQuery and an understanding
of model-view-controller coding patterns (we use Backbone).
• You can write simple, accessible, and semantic HTML5. You can dress
it up with CSS3 so it looks great in all browsers–but even better in
the newest browsers.
• You’re thoughtful about end-user experience and community needs–and
able to collaborate with designers and product. Your implementation
should be spot-on, but so should your questions about design or specs.
• You’re eager to try out ideas and push code every day–we iterate rapidly here and deploy continuously.
• You know that simple, sustainable systems win and that adding a new
feature sometimes means refactoring old code. You code fast today, but
are always laying groundwork so the whole team can code fast tomorrow.
• You can work with a big code base with other developers (we use
Git) and communicate that work with both technical and non-technical

To apply: Please send a brief email to telling us about yourself and what you love to work on. Share any and all links that you feel help describe who you are and what you’ve done (GitHub, blog, Twitter, Flickr, etc.)
