We are seeking someone with 2 to 5 years of frontend experience working within a Rails/React ecosystem to launch products that people find easy and delightful to use. We believe that good software should be fun to use and you should, therefore, enjoy building it. We are a team of engineers who all have a bit of imposter syndrome, but that's okay. If you've launched products, talked to your users, and heard their feedback, you might be a great fit.

About the Role:

We work on anything from launching small features scoping the work to 1 to 2-week cycles to more substantial features taking 6-weeks to daily bug/feedback releases. You will usually work with 1 or 2 designers and 2 to 3 engineers. Our pace is fast, but we want to maintain quality and delightfulness, so we are calm and try to be precise on what we choose to take on. We value honest talk about what can and cannot be achieved.

You will be helping support our customers directly, whether that is the occasional chat/phone/email or face to face meeting. We believe that engineers need to interact with their users to build the best products.

About you:

Everyone at Sawyer is what the Rails creators call managers of one (signalvnoise.com/posts/1430-hire-managers-of-one). We are curious, excited to learn, kind, and full-stack humans. We thrive on trusting each other and knowing that support is how great teams exceed expectations. Engineering at Sawyer is not about building a cult of ideas based on the cool new thing, but we do want people who share our values on customers centric software design. We care about clean, easy to read, performant code that you would be looking forward to refactoring a year from now.

Being a frontend engineer, you should be familiar with the ins and outs of HTML/CSS (SCSS) and JavaScript (ES6+). Being comfortable working with front-end JavaScript frameworks is the utmost importance; that being said, it's a bonus if you have experience working with React/Material-UI. We believe engineering is more than just knowing a language. You will be working closely with design/product shaping, implementing, and refining UI/UX experiences.

• 2-5+ years of experience with HTML/CSS/JS
• 2+ years of experience with front-end JavaScript frameworks
• 2+ years of experience with CSS frameworks
• Comfortable transforming visual designs into code
• Strong understanding of responsive web design and browser limitations
• Knowledgeable and comfortable with a wide variety of technologies
• Strong passion and drive for excellence and success

• Competitive salary
• Company stock options
• Medical, vision, and dental health plans
• Unlimited Vacation
• 401k plan, Commuter Benefit, HSA, and other benefits
• Office perks: Unlimited seltzer, coffee, tea, candy, pretzels, snacks, and the occasional office sheet cake

How to Apply:

Send an email to engineering@hisawyer.com telling a bit about yourself, some favorite things you've built (or others built), GitHub links, resume, and anything else you think would help us see what it would be like to work with you.
