Senior React Engineer (PUBLIC)

Description

Kahani is bringing full screen video/story content to the web. As our Senior React engineer, you will take over ownership of the Kahani Module and work with our full stack engineer & design team to take it to the next level. Our product and team are growing rapidly and we’re looking for the right person who can help us unlock new capabilities.

Responsibilities

  • Turn wireframes into complete, functional applications without guidance from other React engineers or a lot of Googling

  • Take ownership of continued development on the Kahani Module & Customer Portal

  • Get excited about what we’re building and bring your own ideas into the mix.

  • Regularly deploy code that has been appropriately QA’d on a variety of platforms on both desktop & mobile

  • Remote OK (our team is already distributed), but most your working hours should mostly overlap with US Central Time

  • We operate a professional environment, but are also a startup. Priorities and requirements will shift frequently as we work towards product-market fit

Experience/Skills

  • At least 5 years building React applications, full time

  • Knowledgable about React state management (ex: Context, Redux, ...)

  • Capable of setting up a new React project with the right architecture that we would be proud of

  • You can write detailed CSS in your sleep

  • You have a set of go-to pipeline tools (ex: Babel, Webpack, Parcel, ...)

  • Experience displaying streaming video on the web

  • Experience implementing smooth JS/CSS animations

  • Bonus:

    • Shopify app or theme experience

    • Experience instrumenting a UX for performance tracking (ex: Fullstory, Google Analytics, Segment, ...)

    • Experience running A/B tests

    • You’ve worked on very small teams before and prefer it that way

    • You have an eye for design. We have no full-time designers and would love to add someone who has more of a flair for it than we do
