Overview

You are a mature, intrinsically-motivated, well-rounded web engineer, with a deep understanding of what makes great websites and applications.

You write clean, well-architected, scalable, secure, and high-performance JavaScript code. You’ll fit right in if you are excited about the innovation in the browser space (e.g., AngularJS), and have a long history of using JavaScript frameworks (e.g., jQuery, D3.js, Backbone.js).

You have about 10 years of experience, possibly spanning both engineering and design/UX. You’re an expert JavaScript programmer, perhaps an open-source contributor, and know HTML5/CSS3 inside out. You also care a great deal about quality, as evidenced by your insistence on testing (unit, end-to-end, load, performance), application instrumentation, and continuous deployment.
