In this role you will be reporting directly to our Head of Engineering and working alongside 15 other developers and 5 QA engineers.

Your Qualifications:

  • 3-10 years of frontend programming experience for web-based applications
  • Solid understanding of underlying web technologies
  • Proficiency in JavaScript, TypeScript, React, and Redux
    • Knowledge of websockets, LivewView (via Phoenix), Webpack, Vite, and Storybook are nice but not required
  • Aptitude to pick up a new language and frameworks, desired to continually improve your front-end craft
  • Already know your way around git, and can work with agile and kanban
  • Love solving problems, and strive to improve processes and workflows and make others lives easier
  • Take pride in writing code that is well-tested and documented for maintainability
  • Able to enter into and handle conflict with others in a humble, honest manner
  • Can handle competing priorities in a dynamic, entrepreneurial environment
  • Are authorized to work in the U.S.

What we Offer:

  • Competitive Base Compensation: $120,000 - $150,000 based on experience
  • Stock Options: Offered on a four-year vesting schedule with a one-year cliff
  • Growth Opportunity: Ground floor opportunity as an early member of the Semsee team
  • Our Culture: An inclusive company culture that is being built intentionally to foster stimulating, healthy, meaningful and long lasting work relationships.
  • Hybrid Distributed Workplace: Offices in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Columbus, OH +Remote Team Members
  • COVID Vaccination: Must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to be in-office, travel and safely attend company funded events.
  • Time Off: 4 weeks (20 Days) + 9 company observed holidays; Total 29 Days/Year
  • Benefits: 70% Funded Medical/Vision/Dental; 100% Funded Life Insurance; 401k, Roth IRA; Generous 12 Weeks Paid Baby Bonding Leave, +more
