The Points Guy is looking for a passionate, results-oriented Front End Developer with the skills and the drive to build and maintain first-class digital experiences. Our goal is to help the world return to travel safely and ambitiously, with all the tools they need to carry them through their travels. Each day, you'll create, code and optimize websites and user experiences in a workplace where you can see the impact of your ideas. You’ll architect, write, test and maintain code for mission critical applications in an environment where celebrating wins is part of our culture. We’re all about learning and personal development -- you’ll have space to be curious and will be encouraged to push the boundaries and think outside the box before settling on a solution. You’ll work closely across the disciplines -- with Product, QA, DevOps, Data Engineering, Backend Engineering -- to pinpoint areas of opportunity and optimization and lean in to help achieve the results. We offer exciting projects, plenty of space for career growth, and also, a pretty great bunch of peers who believe in having fun and working hard in equal measure. 

What you’ll do:

  • Design, implement, modify and test engaging, consumer-facing web experiences.
  • Collaborate closely with business and design teams to scope and deliver valuable projects on time.
  • Teach and learn new skills with your fellow developers, producing quality code with consistent standards.
  • Continually look for opportunities to build value in the codebase: set standards, build tools, and automate jobs to make yourself and your team better and faster.
  • Demonstrate a sharp eye for detail. Debug issues and execute so everything “just works.”

What we’re looking for:

  • 3-5+ years experience in front end web development
  • Strong HTML, CSS, and Vanilla JS.
  • Experience building websites or APIs with PHP7 and Wordpress.
  • Experience with page speed optimization. Working knowledge of web image formats, font loading techniques, and strategies for optimizing Core Web Vitals.
  • Experience developing your own wordpress themes or plugins.
  • Experience with Test-Driven Development (TDD) and Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery CI/CD environments.
  • Experience with javascript frameworks (ReactJS, VueJS or AngularJS)
  • Experience with Monitoring and Metrics tools such as New Relic, DataDog, ELK stack etc. 
  • Eager to take ownership of work, including collaboration with stakeholders and developers through the product development lifecycle

Even Better:

  • Ability to architect and develop your own API’s
  • Experience integrating SaaS products into websites, especially digital marketing products (like Segment, Mailchimp, Iterable, or Optimizely) and adtech products like Google Ad Manager (DFP).
  • Experience implementing Web Accessibility Standards. (compliance with WCAG 2.0 Level AA preferred)
  • You’ve built a side-project that shows off more advanced skills
  • You contribute to an open source project
  • You volunteer or mentor fellow developers
