Title: Senior Frontend Developer

Location: Remote, Portland OR

Reports to: Web Team Lead

About The Dyrt

The Dyrt is the #1 ranked camping app on both iOS and Android. With more than 1 million user-submitted campgrounds, reviews, and tips — more than anyone else on the Internet — The Dyrt makes it easier to find campgrounds for the 80+ million people who camp across the United States.

Role Summary

As a senior engineer at The Dyrt, you will be tasked with building a robust, maintainable web experience for the 1M+ campers using our website every month. We are in the process of splitting our Ember single-page app into multiple codebases in order to improve site performance. This position is an opportunity for engineers looking to grow their architecture skills as we undertake this transition.

Work varies from building highly interactive tools, like our search page and Trip Planner, to focusing on static rendering and page performance on our campground listings. In this position we will be looking to you for experience, knowledge, and the confidence to make the case for what each situation merits in order to provide an ideal experience for site visitors.

You’ll be working on a team with 3-4 other frontend developers and collaborating closely with our API, Mobile, and Design teams.

Essential Responsibilities

  • Leading execution on new features and improvement projects
  • Helping define the longer-term technical vision for scaling and maintaining our frontend codebase
  • Translating comps and wireframes from our Design team into site architecture and components
  • Estimating complexity and dividing up tasks when new projects are brought to the team
  • Responding to support requests and troubleshooting live bugs
  • Assisting with deploys to production

Skills & Qualifications

We’re looking for engineers who:

  • Have at least 4 years professional experience developing web apps with JavaScript and modern component-based frameworks like Ember, React, Vue or Angular; extra credit for experience with static site generation and server-rendered content.
  • Care about writing easy to understand, maintainable code
  • Provide constructive feedback on pull requests and are enthusiastic about mentoring junior developers on the team
  • Proactively research best practices for modern JavaScript and for the frameworks and tools used on the job
  • Can identify site performance concerns and look for opportunities to reduce technical debt
  • Have strong writing and communication skills for documenting project requirements and coordinating with other teams
  • Can weigh multiple solutions for a problem against business needs and time constraints in order to meet company goals
  • Are committed to equity and will respect and value your coworkers opinions no matter their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.

Type of employment

This is a full-time, remote position. We’re primarily based in Portland, OR and expect your working hours to overlap +/- 3 hours with US Pacific time. You may need to be present online for a couple of hours later than usual during a big feature rollout, but generally late nights and weekend work are unnecessary.
