About the role

Join our small and high-impact team. At Robinhood, our web engineers work on two different products: the consumer-facing web product our users love and the operational backbone that powers this and our other Robinhood products.

As a member of our web consumer team, you’ll contribute towards building our first web product, a rich client-side web application that powers the next generation of Robinhood.

As a member of the web operations team, you’ll build core frontend infrastructure and tooling to enable other developers to ship domain-specific applications across the financial industry.

As a Web Engineer, you will:

  • Architect new consumer features and reusable UI paradigms using ReactJS
  • Lead the product from inception to launch, and own large parts of the product’s execution
  • Build and test products to support Robinhood’s brokerage operations
  • Collaborate with brokerage and market specialists to rapidly iterate on the product
  • Design frameworks and tools that empower other developers

Some things we consider critical to being a Web Engineer:

  • Fluency in JavaScript
  • Understanding of functional and reactive programming paradigms
  • Great design intuition and user empathy
  • Passion for supporting power user and building developer tools
  • Familiarity with Python/Django and Go (bonus points)
