As a Frontend Software Engineer on the Leader Onboarding and Expansion (LOE) pod, you will work with a vertically integrated team including design and product expertise to tackle mission critical questions: How do we discover new leaders that will thrive on our platform? How do we build a wonderful onboarding and learning experience for these leaders? How do we help them build healthy, vibrant communities to interact with? You’ll have the opportunity to make significant contributions to an exciting range of product features on our web platform and find creative solutions to our most important user interface and experience challenges.
You will be working with a distributed, remote-first team that spans across North America, Europe, and beyond. Your day-to-day would be spent writing code, pairing with other engineers, and working with product and other teams to deliver innovative features on a cutting edge stack. Last, but not least - we are growth-oriented, both as a company and as individuals: we take learning seriously and invest in growing our skills and our team’s capabilities.
What You’ll Do:
Work cross-functionally with our backend, design and operations teams to build products that scale massively, look fantastic and engage millions of end-users
Write code with best-practices (including testing) and participate in the code review process.
Build new services and component libraries.
Be encouraged to participate in open-source projects
What You'll bring:
3+ years of professional experience building scalable, microservice-based Front end components, preferably in a fast-paced startup environment
Passion for building high-impact, testable, well-performing user experiences
Curiosity about the world and desire to learn and grow
Here's a breakdown of the interview process: 1. Recruiter Screen (30 min, phone call) - a chance to get better acquainted, learn about your interests and aspirations, share details about the role/team, answer initial questions, break down interview process and share how we think about compensation 2. Hiring Manager Interview (45-min, video call): Expand on role responsibilities, engineering culture, get a sense for the candidates general technical skill set, specialized domain knowledge (if applicable), and overall interests 3. Technical Interview (60 min, video call):
Peer Interview (45 min, video call): this interview will take place with 1-2 engineers that the candidate would work closely with if they were to join us. We ask questions around collaboration, values, work styles, etc. This interview is a great chance for candidates to ask questions around the day-to-day role, engineering culture as a whole, and what sort of challenging projects they could expect to work on together
Cross-Team Interview (30-min, video call): This is the final part of the interview process and will include one member of our backend team and one member from Product. All of our pods are cross functional so its common for a frontend engineer to need to communicate with BE/Product folks rather frequently. This interview is weighted less than others, but is still important in establishing baselines around communication norms and expectations.
As a company we are still challenging ourselves in this area every single day. A few things that we've done recently:
Expanding Voices - monthly company wide session to facilitate dialogues around diverse communities. We invite thought leaders and pioneers who combine their passions with activism to drive change to come share and learn with us. Our first session was in September w/ Karen Okonkwo and Joshua Kissi, co-founders of TONL.
WOMXN - this is a space for information sharing and support for anyone at Community who identifies with womanhood. We meet once a month as a large group and once a month in small groups of 4-5.
We challenged our executive team to amend our core values after realizing we didn't have one that really spoke to who we are and who we aspire to be as a company. The value is as follows:
We are a single community made of distinct individuals. Our differences make us who we are as a whole. We stand for inclusivity across race, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, body size, disability, age, and class - in everything we do. We challenge ourselves to learn and are comfortable being uncomfortable. We are different people growing in a shared direction.
