Job Description

Vitamin T is partnering with an AMAZING tech company looking for a Senior Front End Developer to help on a variety of projects. We need someone deep experience of JavaScript performance - if you’re more interested in shaving milliseconds off of boot timings rather than writing CSS, you’re in the right place. We love performance optimizations, metrics instrumentation, and iterating on best-practices with the rest of the frontend teams. We also work with backend infrastructure engineers to design new performant services to better support clients.

Requirements:

  • 5+ years working with frontend frameworks and libraries professionally (and having built or contributed to some is a big plus.)
  • You know the weirdest parts of JavaScript and love working with it anyway.
  • You know your way around the performance profiling and debugging tools in your web browser of choice.
  • You’ve dabbled with webpack or other build tools, and know how to squeeze more juice out of them than what comes preconfigured in the box
  • Diving into a new system to understand performance bottlenecks excites you.
  • You write understandable, testable code with an eye towards maintainability and scalability.
  • You are a strong communicator and are equally comfortable talking with your immediate team, other frontend engineers, or even backend infrastructure engineers.
  • You are ready to learn, but just as excited to teach.
  • You understand that the perfect solution is informed by the people who will be building on your work, rather than being purely dependent on technical merits. Empathy is a feature.
  • You have a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related field, or equivalent training, fellowship, or work experience.
