Does the idea of empowering every professional in the world with the tools, guidance and community to grow their career appeal to you? Do you believe a Calm or Peloton for careers SHOULD exist? Then read on because we might just have the perfect job for you! 

We are looking for a  Lead Frontend Engineer to lead and define the architecture and execution strategy for all frontend efforts across the Teal platform. You will be working with our current front-end engineer who is fantastic and strong and loves his craft.

  • Grow and build the frontend engineering team

You Have Experience:
  • With our stack: React, Redux, Typescript
  • With testing, and you love it
  • Working in a startup environment where helping to build culture and processes is just as important as building code

What Awesome Looks Like:

At 1 month:
  • On Day 1 you’ve made your first pull request
  • In 1 Week you have a good idea of how to take the existing frontend client to where it needs to go in terms of high level architecture and low level pattern changes
  • You have moved the needle on the frontend client, structuring it in such a way that future functionality becomes easier, not harder to implement

At 3 months:
  • We are in flow, moving at speed because of the prior foundational work, adding new features, able to iterate and test and measure with confidence

At 6 months:
  • Your tools have been in people’s hands for months
  • You’ve personally seen that your work has affected the lives of thousands of people as they gain employment through the tools you’ve created
