Imagine texting with artists, celebrities, and visionaries the same way you text your mom or best friend. Here at Community, we’re defining a new category of connection: Social Messaging. We pair the simplicity of a text message with the scale of a social network to instantly communicate with the people you want to reach (or hear from).

Share new music, send inspirational messages, release limited-edition products or even grant exclusive access. Whatever content you dream up, send messages individually, or collectively to your community and get instant results. With text messaging open rates over 90% and double-digit engagement, you’re building an authentic and personal connection with every member.

About the role and your impact

As a Senior Software Engineer on the Core pod, your work will help our leaders to interact with their audiences by filtering, aggregating, and searching high volumes of text messages in real-time. Your pragmatism and deep experience in React/JavaScript will help improve our current application in an Agile fashion. Your curiosity will help us evaluate new frontend technologies to delight our users with rich experiences. Beyond technical impact, your growth-oriented mindset and positive attitude will reinforce our engineering culture as a whole and support leadership in decision-making.


What you'll do

  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to deliver product features in an Agile environment.
  • Decompose and refactor complex and ambiguous logic into manageable components.
  • Instrument, monitor, and test frontend components that are performant under load and handle large data sets; participate in on-call rotations.
  • Help lead engineering efforts by authoring technical design documentation; break down complex projects into small executable units.
  • Work with other frontend engineers to strengthen and scale the web platform; institute best practices to improve consistency and development velocity across all teams.
  • Mentor and coach less experienced engineers.

What you'll bring

  • 7+ years of frontend experience building and operating multi-tenant SaaS applications, using modern web development technologies.
  • 3+ years of experience in React and a deep understanding of React/Javascript frameworks.
  • Strong proficiency in Node.js, CSS, and HTML.
  • Passion for building high-impact, testable, well-performing user experiences.
  • Desire to explore and share new frontend technologies.
  • Bonus: Experience in maintaining a component library.
  • Curiosity about the world and desire to learn and grow.

Our stack

  • Our backend is largely asynchronous, written in Elixir, running in Docker containers, on a distributed, scheduled platform on AWS. We work w/ PostgreSQL, Cassandra, Redis, and RabbitMQ among others.
  • The front-ends are in React, iOS, and Javascript.
