Front-End Engineer

Engineering | San Francisco, CA | Full Time

Job Description

The Company:

At Liftopia, we’re building tools that are igniting a movement in the ski and attractions industries, bringing innovative changes that benefit both our partners and their customers. Our unmatched e-commerce, yield management, and business intelligence tools allow resorts and attractions to offer robust pricing strategies and advanced purchase for their tickets, lessons, rentals, and other recreational products. As a result, Liftopia helps its partners grow their revenue through advanced-purchase ticketing strategies, while consumers can enjoy their favorite activities more frequently and at more affordable prices.

Liftopia is already the largest largest seller of lift tickets online and the number one e-commerce provider for ski resorts, and is actively expanding to include partnerships with waterparks and other attractions. We are a growing, venture-backed company and our passionate team is the driving force behind our success. We are propelled by our vision to transform the online ticketing experience and increase the success of our partners. You belong here if this quickens your pulse and makes you want to roll-up your sleeves.

 

The Role:

We are looking for a strong Front-End Engineer and an all around awesome person to join our small team building the next generation of Liftopia’s platform and tools. Our immediate focus is consumer-facing web products which are built with Ruby on Rails and we are about to start a new project to deliver both iOS and Android apps using React Native. We are looking for Product-oriented engineers that love to collaborate across the stack and across the company. We love engineers who care about design and have a concern for aesthetic integrity.

 

Qualifications:

  • Self-motivated, experienced developer who enjoys owning projects from inception to completion and works extremely well with others.

  • You need to be a generally curious person who is always learning. You also want to build your brand by doing great things. 

  • Experience using Javascript to do great things. Our current stack includes a component based architecture on the front end, but experience with (relatively) established frameworks is a good thing as long as you are flexible and willing to work with the right tools for the job.

  • Know something about several front-end frameworks and have opinions about what they are good for and what they are not.

  • Love the good parts of Javascript and don't whine about the "bad" ones because that's not really relevant.

  • Ruby and Rails exposure is a big plus, but if you’re an experienced web developer in another language and willing to drink our Kool-Aid, let’s still talk.

  • You find satisfaction in beautiful CSS (maybe just SASS) and care about our mobile and tablet friends, not just the Cinema Display People.

  • End-to-end experience building, shipping, and maintaining consumer web and/or mobile products.

  • Startup DNA a must, including having a growth mindset, a sense of urgency, and be comfortable with challenging the status quo while charging ahead when the challenge is not successful.

  • A strong preference for order with the ability to work through chaos to get there.

  • Excellent verbal, written, and interpersonal communication skills.
     

Bonus Points:

  • E-commerce and/or travel experience

  • You care about using data as part of making decisions and have experience with tools and strategies for analytics and/or data visualization (hint-hint: D3)

  • Lucene-based search work in your portfolio

  • Strong Github and/or Stackoverflow presence

  • Involvement with and contribution to cool projects
     

What's in it for you? We thought you'd never ask!

  • A strong voice in the future of the company - you'll be a valued member of our team, whose ideas about how to grow a world-class company will be vital to our success.

  • The opportunity to truly change an awesome industry for the better.

  • Oh, and some great benefits!

    • Competitive salary

    • Stock options

    • Benefits plan including medical, dental, and vision insurance

    • 401K

    • Wellness program

    • Flexible time off

    • Casual office

    • Fun, outdoorsy culture

    • Nice deals on lift tickets!

    • Liftopia Days (company-wide off-sites)

    • Community service days
