At Forestry.io, we believe the web is one of humanity’s greatest achievements and our mission is to help people build a better web. We’re building a Git-backed content management system (CMS) and an open source site-editing toolkit (TinaCMS), both focused on the JAMstack. We’re a growing company with big dreams and ample opportunities for you to have an impact and grow with us.



As a Senior Front-end Engineer--with a React focus--you'll help us build TinaCMS. A game-changer for content management on the web, you'll be at the heart of its development, evolving the technical architecture as well as building and supporting a healthy open-source community.



Because you are a product-minded developer, you easily connect the dots between our tech, the business and of course, our users. You are empathetic, thoughtful and a true team player, collaborating easily with your colleagues across the org. You love the fast pace of startups, the ownership that comes with being a part of a small team and are passionate about open source software and communities. If you're an optimistic self-starter who loves finding elegant solutions to hard problems, we want to hear from you!




What You'll Do:


  • Contribute to the vision and roadmap of the open-source project
  • Architect and build the APIs that power the developers using Tina
  • Interface with and support our open-source community
  • Contribute to the writing of docs, RFCs, migration guides, blog posts in order to support our community

Who You Are:


  • You’re a seasoned React developer with knowledge of advanced React patterns
  • You’ve worked on building APIs or libraries for other developers and understand the importance of a great DX
  • You have excellent communication skills both written and verbal
  • You enjoy digging deep and solving tough problems with code, as you’ll be building abstractions, refactoring and troubleshooting regularly
  • You're a highly effective collaborator, able to build great solutions with your peers at Forestry and with our open-source community
  • You have startup experience and enjoy the autonomy, entrepreneurialism and bias for execution

Nice-To-Haves:


  • You have experience maintaining an open-source project
  • You have experience working with TypeScript or NextJS
  • You have a strong design sense & awareness
  • You have familiarity with content management systems and/or the JAMstack in general
