Front End Engineer at Zapier () (allows remote)

StackOverflow Jobs Feed - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 14:04

Hi there!


We're looking for a Frontend Engineer to join the engineering team at Zapier. Want to create a simple product that allows anyone to do complex, incredible things with the world's APIs? Then keep reading!


We know applying for and taking on a new job at any company requires a leap of faith. We want you to feel comfortable and excited to apply at Zapier. To help share a bit more about life at Zapier, here are a few resources in addition to the job description that can give you an inside look at what life is like at Zapier. We hope you'll take the leap of faith and apply.



Zapier is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce.


About You


You love code. You love to take raw ideas and build great products with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. You know JavaScript is imperfect, but you embrace its functional side and genuinely enjoy coding with it. You might like to talk about obscure computer science topics, but really, you just want to write simple code and ship new products and features to customers (or improve existing ones).


You love great UX. You spend most of your time coding, but you also have an eye for great design and a feel for great UX. Maybe you were once a designer (or still are) or maybe your creative outlet has always been the code. Either way, you care about more than just the code.


You love learning new things. You love playing with new tech. Your focus is on frontend JavaScript code, but you can dig in wherever needed. Python, CSS, build tools, you name it. If you don't already know it, you're ready to learn it.


You can balance lots of concerns. Frontend apps have to take into account performance (using networks and devices that we can't control), customer demands, A/B tests, UX research, code quality, a rapidly changing ecosystem of languages and modules, and the list goes on. And we actually want to ship things too! You can balance those demands without getting overwhelmed and keep the needle moving forward.


You love helping others. You love sharing knowledge with the rest of your team, giving back to the open-source community, and directly helping customers.


Things You Might Do


Zapier is a small, fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:



  • Research, guide, and execute frontend architecture changes, including but by no means limited to GraphQL, server-side React rendering, and Flow typing.

  • Build reusable React components with modular CSS, manage data on the client with Redux and GraphQL, and test everything with Jest.

  • Refactor or improve existing code. We've migrated most of our frontend to React, but we still have some Backbone code to clean up. And we constantly find ways to improve all of our JavaScript code.

  • Work closely with our product, design, and UX teams to create amazing and intuitive experiences that make it effortless to connect different apps together.

  • Help put tools, processes, and documentation in place to improve our code quality.

  • Review code written by other team members or other teams.

  • Ship to hundreds of thousands of users every day while having lots of autonomy in terms of code and feature ownership.

  • Work with complex and varied data structures (APIs can be a little, uh, eccentric).

  • Help out with our Python backend or Node-based developer platform.

  • Share what you know and learn either one-on-one or with lightning talks to the group.

  • Give back to the community via open source and blog posts.

  • Experiment: this is a startup so everything can change as we experiment with doing more custom partnership work



  • As a part of Zapier's all-hands philosophy, help customers via support to ensure they have the best experience possible.


You’ll also have the opportunity to specialize in a variety of areas of the Zapier codebase, including core product or platform development. Focusing on a specialization will not limit your area for growth at Zapier as each engineer brings a unique perspective and can contribute differently in all areas. We encourage participation and will frequently have engineers contribute across teams to assist in projects.

    Weworkremotely Jobs - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 12:33

    • is well-organized, independently motivated and loves working with writers
    • is fascinated by the role technology plays in our day-to-day lives and the ways it continues to shape our future.

    • You are located in North or South America. For this role, it's critical to work hours that overlap with both Eastern and Pacific US time zones to support our writers.

    Basecamp: Data Analyst

    Weworkremotely Jobs - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 12:30

    Headquarters: Chicago, IL, USA
    URL: https://basecamp.workable.com/jobs/825115/candidates/new

    About Us
    Basecamp is hiring a data analyst to help us make better decisions in all areas of the business. This includes everything from running A/B tests with statistical rigor to forecasting revenue for the year to tracing performance problems to analyzing usage patterns.
    We’re looking for an experienced candidate who’s done similar work elsewhere, but nobody hits the ground running. You won’t be able to answer every question immediately or know how all the systems work on day one – and we don’t expect you to.
    We want strong, diverse teams built from different backgrounds, experiences and identities. We’re ready for the ongoing work that goes into building an inclusive, supportive place for you to do the best work of your career. That starts with working no more than 40 hours a week on a regular basis and getting 8+ hours of sleep a night. Our workplace and our benefits are designed to support a sustainable, healthy relationship with your work.
    Today, our team works from 32 different cities spread across 6 countries. You can work from anywhere in the world, so long as your normal working day has 4 hours or more overlap with Chicago time (CST/UTC-6). Nomads welcome.
    About the Job
    Data informs almost everything we do at Basecamp, but we’re not a “data-driven organization” in the sense that data dictates decisions. Data is there to clear the head, but ultimately we drive the company with our heart.
    This means the job isn’t about maximizing revenue or minimizing costs. Yes, we want to make money and we don’t want to be wasteful, but we also want to be kind, considerate, fair, flexible, and calm. You won’t be looking for ways to squeeze the last sour drop out of the lemon at Basecamp.
    But you will help us make sense of the data. Establish the facts. Put a price on the choices we make. Help us understand the business, our software, and its customers.
    Here are some examples of projects you might work on:
    1. Analyzing the performance of a new marketing page. Track the cohort that signed up with this variation. Keep us patient for a statistically significant result. Compute the value of the change.
    2. Identify when a brute-force login attack started, quarantine the IP addresses involved, work with technical operations to bolster our defenses, and write up the forensics report at the end.
    3. Analyze our purchase records to locate transactions within states that are starting to collect sales tax on software like ours, work with our accounting company to document that sourcing method, and help evaluate whether we should buy or build a sales-tax engine.
    4. Help product strategy analyze usage data to figure out whether a certain feature is working as intended, and if it is, who it’s important to.
    5. Illuminate how we’re spending money on cloud computing today, and estimate how much we’ll be spending next year, given our growth patterns.
    6. Answer the question: Has Basecamp 3 gotten slower in the last 6 months? Compare aggregate performance data to find the high-level trends, then help us pinpoint data tipping points or code regressions.
    Answering these questions usually means formulating and running queries against our big data infrastructure. But it also means just doing the basic math, and ensuring we’re being statistically rigorous. You should be able to do both the technical and statistical work to answer questions like the ones in the examples above.
    That’s a lot of different areas of responsibility! So you probably won’t be an expert in all of them, and that’s fine. A solid fundamental approach to analysis will pave the way.
    And you’ll have plenty of help! Basecamp has a Security, Infrastructure, and Performance (SIP) group that’s responsible for managing the data pipeline, storage, and analytical interfaces. And a Operations (Ops) group that’s responsible for running our servers, network, and cloud services. It’s a plus if you’re able to help evolve these systems, but by no means a requirement.
    About You
    In broad strokes, Managers of One thrive at Basecamp. We’re committed generalists, eager learners, conscientious workers, and curators of what’s essential. We’re quick to trust. We see things through. We’re kind to each other, look up to each other, and support each other. We achieve together. We are colleagues, here to do our best work.
    You'll probably have a degree that has exposed you to the rigor of the analytical work. Social scientists welcome. If you don't have a degree in Theoretical Statistics, that's not a showstopper—and it's not what we're looking for, anyway! We care about what you can do and how you do it, not about how you got there.
    While we currently have an office in Chicago, you should be comfortable working remotely – most of the company does! This means that the bulk of our work is written, whether that be in the form of long reports or short chats. We value good writers.
    We also value people who can take a stand yet commit even when they disagree. We subject ideas to rigorous debate, but all remember that we’re here for the same purpose: to do good work together. Charging the trust battery is part of the work.
    About our Benefits
    Our pay is within the top 10% of the industry, for the matched role and experience, based on San Francisco rates. This comes to a range at hiring of between $115,000 and $141,000, depending on your seniority and experience. No matter where you live. Plus, with two years under your belt, you’ll participate in our profit-growth sharing program.
    Our benefits at Basecamp are all about helping you lead a healthy life away from work. While we have a lovely office in Chicago, it’s not where you’ll find foosball tables constantly spinning, paid lunches, or any of the other trappings that companies use to lure employees into staying ever longer at work.
    Work can wait. Our benefits include 4-day Summer Weeks, a yearly paid vacation, a one-month sabbatical every three years, and allowances for CSA, fitness, massage, and continuing education. We have top-shelf health insurance and a retirement plan with a generous match. See the full list.
    How To Apply
    Please send an application tailored to this position that speaks to us. Introduce yourself as a colleague. Show us that future. As we said, we value great writers, so please do take your time with the application. Forget that generic resume. There’s no prize for being the first to submit!
    We’d like to hear about how you’d approach some of the example projects outlined in the description about the job. How would you approach these topics? What’s important to you?
    All that being said, don’t send in a copy of War & Peace. We hire rarely at Basecamp, so when we do, there’s usually hundreds of applicants. Be kind to the people doing application triage and keep your cover letter to fewer than 800 words and the thoughts on project approaches below the same.
    Go for it!
    We are accepting applications for this position until Friday, October 12. We’ll let you know that we’ve received your application. After that, you probably shouldn’t expect to hear back from us until after the application deadline has passed. We want to give everyone a fair chance to apply and be evaluated.
    As mentioned in the introduction, we’re eager to assemble a more diverse team. In fact, we’re not afraid of putting extra weight on candidates from underrepresented groups at Basecamp.
    We can’t wait to hear from you!
    (And again, imposters: We are too. Take heart. Step up.)

    X-Team: Game Designer / Dungeon Master

    Weworkremotely Jobs - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 10:16

    Headquarters: Remote
    URL: http://x-team.com

    X-Team is an international company founded in Melbourne, Australia, that helps companies scale their development teams by providing them with extraordinary teams of developers from around the world.
    We are 100% remote and believe in building a world where developers can have access to an environment of growth and incredible opportunities regardless of where they live.
    We are also a community of people dedicated to unleashing our potential. We’ve fostered a unique, active lifestyle and culture around this idea that continues to attract thousands of developers to apply every day.
    We proactively support our developers, fund their learning and growth, connect them in roaming hacker housesaround the world, and give them a remote environment that motivates and inspires them on a daily basis. While other companies merely place and drop their talent, we provide unified teams of developers centered around the same beliefs, values, and lifestyle. 
    We're uniquely situated to help shape how companies grow their businesses in the digital age and aid them in being able to do so properly with the right people. We work with big brands like Riot Games, Fox Broadcasting, Kaplan Inc., Coinbase, Google, Twitter and more…
    The Role:
    • This is one of the most unique roles in existence. After all, how many tech companies have a full-time Dungeon Master on their roster? And why?
    • We have a community of developers (aka geeks) and we give them Quests, which are month-long co-op Slack-based games designed to help them get energized and do more of what they love and get more productive. 
    • You can read about a very outdated Quest we made around fitness here: https://x-team.com/blog/fit-quest-our-slack-survival-fitness-game/ (We do much better ones now, just no time to write about them!)
    • Another example is a Spy Quest that encourages people to work outside of their home, sending them to cafes and malls to 'hack' security cameras and 'plant devices' (take a pic of your discreetly placed "microphone coffee cup") or 'hack an ATM' (take a photo of an ATM), all while trying to help catch high profile targets.
    • The closest similarity to all of this is Habitica: https://habitica.com/ But less lame and way more epic.
    • You'll be responsible for, each month, coming up with a new quest, playing as the GM/DM on it, compiling graphics you'll need for it (some Photoshop experience is a big plus here), writing minor storyline to help the quest progress, and creating all the mechanics that make it super fun to play with everyone while completing "real world" tasks.
    • You'll report to the CEO, our chief geek.

    The Pay:
    • Up to $15 per hour ($2,400 per month) based on experience and written English capability.
    • $2,500 per year budget given to every X-Teamer which can be used for various activities which help you learn, grow and get energized. Examples include: gym membership, fresh produce, courses, conferences, babysitter, games, and more.

    About You:
    • Aspiring game designer looking to start building some experience in game design.
    • Beloved dungeon master/game master who loves getting a group of friends together for an epic quest.
    • Passion for all or most of these: travel, gaming, tech, movies, fitness, photography, music, mental health.
    • Extensive knowledge of games, especially tabletop games, and ability to adapt their mechanics into Quests.

    Personal:
    • Independent, self-motivated
    • Fluent in written English
    • Proactive attitude
    • Possess a spirit of generosity

    Perks:
    • Live and work in one of our roaming hacker houses (X-Outposts) around the world.
    • Work from anywhere as part of a community of digital nomads.
    • Join our vibrant community, filled with opportunities to learn new skills together in study groups, join clubs (photography, gaming, etc.) and get free camera equipment/games/conferences/courses/massages/etc., charitable fundraisers, fitness & yoga programs (+gym membership), etc. This is the community to be in if you work remote.
    • We’ll provide up to $2,500 in funding for your learning and growth through our Unleash program, which provides opportunities to unleash your potential through initiatives that help you grow as a developer and explore your passions more each day.

    Safeguarding Monitor: Ruby on Rails Engineer (UK)

    Weworkremotely Jobs - Fri, 09/21/2018 - 09:31

    Headquarters: Nottingham, UK
    URL: http://www.safeguardingmonitor.co.uk

    Remote (UK home-based) with occasional paid travel£20-30,000 per year depending on experience
    Safeguarding Monitor provide systems to schools, colleges and multi-academy trusts to help keep children safe - the work we do really makes a difference. We were established a year ago and were recently acquired by Impero, a market leader in online safety. We’re a remote UK-based team and are looking for a Ruby on Rails Engineer to join us.
    We believe in creating careers, not jobs. During your time with us you’ll receive regular, honest, helpful feedback. We’ll be looking for ways to grow your expertise, and we will provide opportunities for your professional development. Although we’re a remote team, we speak every day, and arrange regular meetings both by department and as a company.
    We are first and foremost looking for developers who can demonstrate strong engineering principles, and whether you’ve been developing for one year or five we may have a role for you. We can offer you the technical challenges, high standards and opportunity to make a difference to our products. We have an exciting roadmap ahead and you can be part of that journey as we transition from a startup to a global product offering. Our team is growing in a way that will allow you to play to your strengths: enjoy maintenance and optimisation, data analysis, or building huge new features? There’ll be a fit for you.
    Our platform is built exclusively in Ruby on Rails, and we’re working towards continuous delivery - we currently deploy something every day of the week. We do the majority of our work and daily communication through Slack, with regular conference calls, screen shares, and opportunities for pair programming. We run two-weekly sprints in a kanban fashion, but don’t get bogged down in the process. Our roadmap and in-flight boards are managed with Trello, and code is peer reviewed regularly through Github. We’re running above 90% code coverage, with a test suite written in RSpec and continuous integration to run these tests and code quality metrics.
    Required skills:
    • Experience and skills developing web applications with Ruby on Rails
    • Experience with MySQL/MariaDB or another relational database
    • Experience with HTML, CSS, and jQuery
    • Experience with using Git or Subversion
    • An interest in test-driven development
    • Enthusiasm for understanding technical ideas and explaining them clearly to other members of the team
    • An appreciation of when things “look right”: we don’t expect you to be a designer (we have designers for that!) but we like attention to detail
    • A willingness to provide technical support to the team, and occasionally customers
    • Comfortable using macOS as your day-to-day operating system, or happy to learn
    • A strong standard of spoken and written English
    • An interest in the context and use of your work across education and safeguarding

    Other things that might be useful:
    • Experience in writing specs with RSpec
    • Experience working with and on Linux/Unix operating systems
    • Experience in server automation using Terraform or Puppet
    • Experience with data analysis, using R or a similar tool
    • Experience working remotely and in an agile environment

    The highlights:
    • Work remotely, with travel covered for training days and team building
    • Essential hardware provided, including a laptop and VOIP phone
    • Full training, including safeguarding, health and safety and information security
    • Staff Employee Assistance Program
    • 28 days’ holiday pro-rata, including bank holidays
    • Regular wage and benefits reviews
    • (Negotiable) reduced hours outside term time

    To apply: Send your CV to techjobs@safeguardingmonitor.co.uk and tell us in a personalised covering email why you are interested in this opportunity. Our selection process usually starts with a short phone interview, and then for shortlisted candidates, a visit to Impero's Nottingham offices for a face-to-face interview, practical exercise, and some time for you to meet and get to know the team. Please, no recruiters or firms offering subcontracting.
