Content analytics that drives growth and conversions. Thousands of content teams use Parse.ly to gain visibility into content analytics, measure their content's performance, and ultimately, prove content conversion and business impact.

We are seeking a senior developer who loves programming and shipping production software, but who also has keen design instincts and an ability to simplify, simplify, simplify -- until the data speaks for itself.

Our frontend team owns the core experience of Parse.ly’s customer-facing SaaS products -- most importantly, its real-time analytics dashboard.

Parse.ly is a fully distributed team, which means 100% of our engineers, designers, and product managers (including our founder & CTO) work out of home offices. Most of the product team is located in US/Eastern and US/Central timezones. We'll give preference to those timezones, because even though we operate on a distributed/async model, we like to have timezone overlap for f2f (video) collaboration and pairing. We prefer to hire US-based candidates, but we'll consider Canada, Mexico, and Argentina for this role.

Your Perspective on JavaScript

JavaScript has gone through a lot of iteration in the last decade. Parse.ly has existed across three JavaScript maturity waves: (1) simple rich web apps built with Python/Django and a touch of jQuery & D3.js; (2) full AngularJS 1.x SPAs powered by a Django REST API, during the peak of Angular 1's popularity; (3) componetized React and Vue applications powered by REST APIs & GraphQL, more recently.

Given this evolution, Parse.ly frontend engineers develop a mastery over JavaScript and web technologies, pick the best tool for the job, and don't fuss about the particular framework du jour. You'll be working on a modern JavaScript codebase -- parts of which might leverage AngularJS, D3.js, React, Vue, or other libraries. Since you're a senior JavaScript engineer, a mix of frameworks doesn't bother you in the slightest, as you realize it's the nature of the beast for a set of successful production web applications developed 2013-2020. And, since you're a senior software engineer, cracking open the middle tier -- which is written with established & stable technologies like Python, Django, and Postgres -- doesn't bother you either.

What You’ll Do

  • Write JavaScript code using the best practices.
  • Come up with novel interface implementations and data visualizations.
  • Write code in Python that powers our Django-based HTTP API.
  • Creatively sketch and design new product features.
  • Analyze customer usage data to improve shipped features.

An Ideal Applicant Will Have

  • 5+ years experience in technology.
  • A preference for self-sufficient productivity.
  • Senior level of proficiency with modern JavaScript.
  • Comfort with git, the command line, and Python.
  • Experience working on cross-functional teams.
  • A customer focused mindset with a strong desire to ship.
