LessonlyProduct Development 3-5 Years

Job Description

We are a tight-knit group with diverse backgrounds who value our culture. Individually, we strive to be humble, hungry, and people-smart. As a team we put learners first, we share before we are ready, we ask clarifying questions, we highlight what’s working, we have difficult conversations, we get agreements, and we make time for life. These aren’t just slogans we put on the wall…we love and live by our culture.

So, if you are a hungry engineer who is looking to jump on a path of continuous learning, continuous improvement, and a team that values impacting real people in a real way… look no further, you may be a llama and just don’t know it yet.

We’re looking for a front end engineer to join our team to help drive the development of new features and help with the development of our UI Component Library, the implementation in code of our design system. The ideal candidate will have strong opinions (weakly held) about what makes a good abstraction, experience writing code that other engineers depend on, and values team success over personal achievement.

You’ll be most successful in this role if you have a desire to grow in all areas of front end development. Specifically, a love for React, JavaScript, and CSS will take you a long way!

Roles & Responsibilities
Frontend Engineer (50-60%): As a front-end engineer, you’ll work alongside back-end engineers, designers, testers, and product managers to figure out how best to meet our customers’ needs in a lean, accessible, internationalized, and extensible way. Our frontend codebase depends primarily on React, Webpack, and SCSS-preprocessed CSS, with a sprinkle of legacy jQuery and Backbone that we’re working on replacing.

Code Reviewer (20-25%): All code at Lessonly is peer-reviewed before we ship it, not just for completeness and correctness but as a primary venue for collaboration and honing our craft.

Frontend Architecture (10-20%): Engineers across the stack are responsible for not just following but contributing to our various Style Guides. This individual will collaborate with all frontend engineers on changes with architectural scope (e.g. new patterns, conventions, and dependencies) and help continue building an extensive component and pattern library along with the templates, documentation and reference applications to get started. Additionally, this individual will help maintain the design system and push the project forward alongside other developers, designers, and product managers in an agile environment.
