Junior Software Engineer

Apply Now

We are seeking a capable, front-end-focused Software Engineer.


As a junior- to mid-level front-end developer, you will collaborate with product owners, project managers, QA testers and other software engineers to create new, engaging and useful audience experiences. You’ll work closely with stakeholders to understand requirements, build prototypes, and deliver world-class products and features.

You are:

  • A communicator: Whether written or oral, your communication skills are outstanding in any context. Your interactions with stakeholders and coworkers move business forward in a dynamic, exciting, entrepreneurial working environment. You are as good – maybe better – at listening as you are at talking and writing.
  • A problem-solver: You’re a results-oriented multi-tasker who runs toward a challenge. You’re able to work on multiple projects simultaneously and think independently. You are personally committed to completing a project with a conscientious attitude and good follow-through. You see to it that all assignments are completed correctly and uphold department and company standards.
  • Accountable: You are the greatest critic of what you deliver. You are proud of your work, and you stand by it. You are humbled but not defeated by failure and accept it as a critical part of learning. You are honest and never blame or project frustrations onto others.

All must be met to be considered.

  • 1-3 years of professional Web development experience

Specific Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:
