In this role, you’ll work within a dedicated and fully staffed feature team to build and maintain user-facing features and libraries that are essential for cross-functional development teams.

You will work with React, Redux, and NextJS to build a robust platform for helping our users and admins create beautiful event pages, greeting cards, and custom media.

Your contributions will make a meaningful impact to a complex consumer product and be used by millions of users.

A little bit about us

The PP Engineering team, a highly collaborative group of developers and technologists, is charged with building and refining a consumer-facing product that millions of people interact with each month. Our individual feature teams each focus on a unique piece of the user experience and are made up of engineers, product managers, QA, and product designers. We prioritize creativity and continuing education, and our ongoing commitment to quality code shows in our pragmatic but brave approach to technology.

What you’ll do here

  • Maintain and implement a web-based editor and suite of tools for dynamic webpage creation, used by our users and in-house content team.
  • Contribute to a React (NextJS) and GraphQL codebase that is peer-reviewed and part of our continuous deployment pipeline.
  • Add to a growing library of robust tests using Jest and Testing Library.
  • Actively participate in developing useful API contracts between Front End and Back End
  • Coordinate with technical leads on best practices and align on implementation strategies.
  • Work closely with Product Management and Product Design to communicate new feature designs to other members of the team.

What you bring to the table

  • Experience and confidence working with modern Front-end development practices.
  • Experience working in and shipping features inside an established, complex codebase
  • Experience working on stateful frontend applications which balance performance and functionality
  • Ability to lead projects and feature development from definition through implementation
  • Ability to communicate complex concepts with both technical and non-technical stakeholders
  • Proficient in building consensus among collaborators and peers
  • Exposure to full-stack development preferred, including some familiarity in designing APIs, working with databases, and monitoring application performance.
  • Experience in Node.js, Ruby on Rails, or Go are all pluses.
  • Past experience developing creative tools or working with graphics is a plus.

Company-wide, we enjoy an amazing ecosystem of an even gender split and a balance of engineers and designers. Because Paperless Post isn't supported by ad revenue, we can focus our efforts on creating and improving on the ideal version of our platform, product, content, and partnerships for our users.
