Senior Frontend Engineer

At 8returns, we're transforming one of the most frustrating, environmentally damaging and costly aspects of e-commerce — returns. Our customers love 8returns because it delivers a seamless returns experience, frees their team from tedious manual tasks and is more sustainable for our environment. We are funded by well-known industry leaders and early stage investors.

As a small team, we’re all generalists and constantly picking up new challenges. When it comes to code, we’re looking to work with experienced people who can pick a problem and solve it. If you are someone with a strong drive to build something new, while tackling any obstacles in your way, and motivated by constantly learning and becoming better, 8returns is for you.

What you’ll do:

You'll be one of the first engineers and a member of the founding team, joining a team of 5 engineers. You will work closely with our founder and product lead to create and implement the front-end for our products. This requires you to take product ownership, initiative, be creative and reliable. Our stack is Ruby on Rails + Postgres + React.

Who You Are:

We're looking for an experienced Frontend Software Engineer to join our engineering team. Someone who has a solid understanding of web technologies and wants to help design, implement, and launch major user-facing features.

You should have senior level experience (~5 years) building modern frontend applications in JavaScript, HTML, and CSS, with at least 3 years of that experience using React.

You should have significant experience designing, debugging, and optimizing frontend applications to make them fast and reliable. You have significant experience with REST APIs and thoroughly understand HTTP requests. You have experience participating in code reviews and providing overall code quality suggestions to help maintain the structure and quality of the codebase.

You should have great product sense and be able to think through user experience issues before diving into the code, and you exhibit a love for great UI.

You’re comfortable working in a fast-paced environment with a small and talented team where you're supported in your efforts to grow professionally. You are able to manage your time well, communicate effectively and collaborate in a fully distributed team.

You’ll be able to work remotely and (mostly) set your own schedule.
