We’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer (Frontend) to join our team to help build fast, easy and beautiful tools for thousands of restaurants. As a Senior Software Engineer (Frontend), you will work directly with the product designers and software engineers in the team to build and maintain the frontend architecture, build high-quality re-usable web-component on HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. You will bring to the team industry best practices around modularization, code-organization, accessibility, and responsive layouts.

We look for individuals with a deep knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and those who are ready to champion our web-based and mobile-first philosophy.

  • Experience with TypeScript, SASS, Node.JS would be a plus
  • You’ll contribute to core team culture and contribute code to efforts across a fast-growing company
  • You’ll support, maintain and upgrade code and participate in necessary design and implementation of a complex system
