Venmo was founded on the principles of breaking down the intimidating barriers around financial transactions to make them intuitive, friendly, and even fun. And it worked: people love sending money with Venmo, and we're growing by leaps and bounds!
Engineering at Venmo
Engineering is a craft, and at Venmo we want the internals of our software to be as elegant as the end user experience we are designing.
The Engineering Team at Venmo is a tightly-knit group of contributors, service owners, architects, managers, and operations. We spend our days scaling our platform and building features that are data-driven and human-centered. We teach and learn from one another, and push each other to be at our creative and analytical bests.
Frontend Software Engineer
The Web team is responsible for our Venmo.com experiences and webviews used in our mobile applications. Our products are used by millions of users every day and must operate at a scale that meets our hockey-stick user growth and rapid portfolio expansion. We are seeking customer-focused frontend engineers who will work closely with our product and design partners to build, user-test, and iterate new features in our web platforms. We are a new small team that values ego-free code reviews, code quality, staying intellectually curious and always searching for better ways to get things done.
As a Frontend Software Engineer, you will assist us in creating delightful user experiences for our customers. You will be responsible for making engineering design decisions and building innovative, human-centered, high-throughput web applications. You should be equally comfortable starting from scratch as well as diving into an existing project to make it better. You will also be expected to be a role model on coding standards, tools, platforms and other best practices for the web team.
Things you'll do:
Design and development of frontend features and components for Venmo.com and webviews used in mobile experiences
Develop frontend architecture and influence implementation that is aligned with business objectives
Iterate with our UX and Product teams in an agile environment to bring features from conception to launch
Collaborate with Platform, Infrastructure and InfoSec teams to ensure web apps operate at scale and meet security requirements
Write clean, high-quality code and tests while keeping the user experience fast and reliable
Reduce the level of technical debt of the web codebase
Build the optimal design and model for the UI that incorporates responsive design and accessibility concerns
Help triage bugs, track software defects, and ensure their timely resolution
Lead and participate in development life cycle activities like design, coding, testing and production release
Define and steward technical standards and code quality
Conduct peer code reviews for pull requests
Provide mentorship to fellow Web engineers
What we are looking for:
3+ years of experience building single page applications with popular JS frameworks and libraries (React, Angular, Ember, Babel, Webpack, Underscore, etc.).
Experience with test automation: TDD, unit/integration/functional testing.
Experience with HTML5, CSS3, Sass, Bootstrap, and cross-browser and device development.
Have a passion for quality and writing clean, solid, readable code that scales and performs well. Strong desire to learn, think creatively, and share knowledge with others.
Strong communication skills with the ability to understand and explain technical issues to a non-technical audience
We know the confidence gap and imposter syndrome can get in the way of meeting spectacular candidates. Please don't hesitate to apply.
