We're looking for a mid or senior-level front-end engineer to jump into a variety of projects. Due to the size of our team, this isn’t a great fit for someone fresh out of school or looking for their first role.
You’ll work closely with the rest of our team to implement new designs and iterate on existing web apps. We primarily use Vue, Nuxt, React Native and Tailwind in our front-end projects and typically build and interface with REST APIs. Tests are also an important part of our process, for testing we use Jest and Cypress.
Eye for design
The ideal person for this role is passionate about good design and cares about getting the little details right. You’re not a designer, but you’re not afraid to open a Figma file either. You love adding subtle transitions, hover effects and visual details to your work.
You care about testing & documentation
We want our clients to be successful long term, so we build everything to be able to hand it off at any point. This means good test coverage, continuous integration, clean documentation and lots of comments.
Excellent communication skills
The best developers are great communicators and teammates, not just great programmers. As a remote team, communication is a vital skill, so we value communication skills over lengthy experience building scalable applications.
Ability to balance trade-offs
At Krit, the most challenging problems are often time and resource problems. We work with seed stage companies who are trying to balance scale with speed to market. We look for people who can balance trade offs and are excited by the impact on the business as much as the technology.
While we put more value on talent, communication and willingness to learn, experience with technology we use is a big plus. Ideal candidates have some direct or comparable experience with one or more of the following:
Vue, React or other modern JS frameworks
Nuxt, Next or similar SSR frameworks
Testing frameworks like Jest or Cypress
You’ll be working with clients and the rest of our production team to architect and build new products, as well as to build out new features on existing products. You’ll regularly contribute to documentation and test coverage, and review PRs from other Kritters. You’ll also help improve development processes and influence how we approach engineering work at Krit.
Your responsibilities will include:
Scaffolding and setting up new greenfield projects
Building new features for and optimizing existing products
Contributing to documentation and test coverage
Reviewing PRs and offering constructive feedback
Troubleshoot bugs and help teammates do the same
Contributing to product roadmap decisions
Helping define and document new development processes
Finding opportunities to elevate the design and experience of the applications you’re working on
Contribute ideas and feedback to the design of projects
You’ll be a human, not a number
While we’re not perfect, we are super passionate about creating a great place to work. We’re striving to build a culture that’s respectful, kind, supportive, and challenging. You won’t just be a number here, you’ll have a measurable impact on the direction of the business.
You’ll be a part of an inclusive, transparent company
One of our goals is to build a more diverse company. To us, this means diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, disability, and national origin. We strongly believe in building an inclusive workplace where everyone feels safe and invited. We are also a fully transparent company. We share our finances, salaries, pipeline and more.
You’ll be part of an engaged team
Every day at 4:00 pm EST we have a standing meeting where we check in and make sure we're staying on track. Each month we have a team meeting where we look at project milestones, our finances, marketing plans, and the pipeline. Once a month you'll also have a one-to-one meeting with Austin (our Creative Director) where you'll look at your goals, progress, and be encouraged to give us feedback.
💸Competitive salary + profit sharing
We’re looking for a mid-level or senior-level engineer for this role. Our salaries and raise process are completely transparent, you can see our Compensation Model here (this role would be a Level 3 or Level 4 Engineer, which pays $95,000 - $115,000 per year). Everybody is paid based on their role, and years of experience. All full-time team members also participate in our quarterly profit-sharing program.
If you’re based in the US we offer competitive healthcare plans, as well as fully-covered dental and vision insurance and access to a 401k with up to 4% contribution matching.
All Krit employees get 15 vacation days as well as 10 company holidays. Sick days don’t count as vacation, if you’re sick don’t make it worse with work.
🌎Remote, United States
While we have a home base in Charleston, SC most of our team is remote. We have team members in South Carolina, Tennessee, Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois, Texas, and Washington, D.C.
Note: For logistics reasons, you must be able to work in the US without requiring sponsorship.
Everyone is different. As long as you can be available for team meetings and are able to communicate effectively with the team, work when you work best. We do expect you to average about 6 billable hours per day.
Every new employee gets $2,500 to spend on equipment, so you can pick whatever works best for you
👼Paid family leave
We offer a family leave plan of up to 4 weeks paid vacation and 4 weeks unpaid regardless of your gender.
