Stripe Frontend Engineer, Payments Product

As Stripe looks beyond the API, we are hiring engineers to help build beautiful, usable interfaces for businesses building on top of Stripe. From constructing checkout workflows to routing money and making sophisticated reports, Stripe aims to provide great interfaces for understanding your business, fulfilling customers’ needs, and creating secure, usable payment forms. Stripe’s frontend libraries are loaded hundreds of times per second and account for tens of millions of dollars per day in online payments.

You might work on:

  • The new version of Stripe.js, Elements and Checkout. You’ll write code that Stripe’s users deploy to build powerful, performant, fraud-fighting checkout forms. Because Stripe.js runs in other people’s forms, globally, and across many different browsers, you’ll deal with tight performance constraints and bundle sizes. You’ll work on everything from build optimizations to API design to multi-frame platform abstractions to browser-specific animation tweaks, all in service of giving Stripe’s users less to worry about.
  • The Stripe Dashboard, which is Stripe’s single page application for running a business on the internet. What started out as a simple payments dashboard has grown to include business insights, account configuration and onboarding, security tools, Radar, Atlas, Billing, and every other product Stripe is building. Frontend engineers at Stripe work both on the platform for the Dashboard and on individual products themselves.
  • Support platform that powers our high-quality, high-touch support experience through products like live chat, click-to-call phone support, dynamic and contextual contact forms, and measure our success through quick customer satisfaction surveys.
  • Stripe’s vast array of internal tools, including Stripe Admin, used across teams to investigate merchants and charges, and Stripe Home, where Stripes go to learn about events, other Stripes, operating principles, and search our ever-growing internal knowledge base. Stripe amplifies its efficiency through investment in internal tools, and each of those tools has its own unique set of frontend engineering challenges and a tight feedback loop of approachable internal users.
  • Frontend experiences for Connect that make it as easy as possible to participate in the Internet economy and receive money online. Some of Stripe’s largest users are platforms that connect senders of payments with receivers of payments. Lyft connects riders to drivers, Kickstarter connects backers to projects, and Squarespace connects shoppers to online stores. All of them participate in doing business online, and all of them directly or indirectly use Stripe.

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Ideally 7+ years of experience shipping high-quality products
  • Empathy with the many different types of users who use Stripe’s UIs
  • An interest in building UIs with modern tools like ES6, React, Redux, PostCSS, Flow, and Webpack
  • An ability to think through customer requirements to come up with high-impact ways of quickly solving their problems
  • A passion about performance, accessibility, and API design
  • A high bar for quality of code and quality of user experience
  • Comfortability working in a large frontend codebase with many stakeholders
  • Attention to the details

What’s it like to work at Stripe?

Stripe is helping the internet fulfill its potential as a platform for economic progress by building software tools that accelerate global economic access and technological development. Stripe makes it easy to start, run and scale an internet business from anywhere in the world.

Stripe is, at its heart, an engineering company. To provide a missing pillar of core internet infrastructure, we hire people with a broad set of technical skills (and from a wide variety of backgrounds) who are ready to take on some of the most challenging problems in the industry – from reliably handling 100M API requests per day, to building adaptive machine learning as a result of years of data science and infrastructure work, and enabling entrepreneurs worldwide to start a global internet business.

We look at Stripe as a constant work in progress and the same is true of our people; for all of us, we believe the best is yet to come. We’re here to support each other in our curiosity and creativity – which we pursue through thoughtful discussion and knowledge-sharing among a diverse set of peers and colleagues.

We encourage all engineers to transition teams once every year and a half and also take on short-term projects with other teams across Stripe. This enables engineers to learn how different parts of Stripe work while also establishing stronger ties and cross-pollination between groups.

We contribute to existing open-source projects and the people working on them, and we release several tools as open-source.

We want to work in a company of warm, inclusive people who treat their colleagues exceptionally well. The kind of people who are committed to going out of their way to help other Stripes in the short-term and pushing them to improve over the long-term (by helping them to get better at what they do).

We’re a highly cross-functional organization and view that as part of the fun: we design our space to encourage as much collaboration as possible. We have long tables in the kitchen for a reason (to enable everyone to meet new people and learn from them). We also have a culture of transparency that we carry through to email communication, ensuring that Stripes all around the world have the information they need to make good local decisions.

In both our products and our people, we aim to reflect, represent and advocate for all of our users, globally. Our users transcend geography, culture and language; what we share, collectively, is a drive to create a fairer, more economically interconnected world.

Nava Frontend Engineer
  • Remote USA
  • Full-time

June 19, 2020

This job post is over 30 days old. It's very likely the position is already filled.
Try applying to a more recent job post instead.

Nava is at the forefront of reimagining how our government serves its people, and we’re looking for experienced designers and developers to help drive this mission forward.

You will work on small teams to build scalable infrastructure for our government -- designing, implementing, and delivering services that millions of Americans depend on. You care deeply about working on technology that improves people’s lives, but don’t think technology is always the answer. You are passionate about building large-scale systems that are inclusive, well-designed, fast, scalable, and secure, and you'll help set high standards for our teams in terms of simplicity, empathy, and accessibility.

You can work remotely, or work from one of Nava’s offices in DC, SF, or NYC.

Opportunities and Challenges

Nava provides opportunities to do meaningful, impactful, mission-oriented work. As a public benefit corporation, we have a social mission written into our founding charter. The people who work at Nava have a fiduciary duty to our stated mission: to improve access, effectiveness, and simplicity of government services. We see this as an opportunity, but it is also important to highlight the challenges we face in advance.

You will be working within the government ecosystem, which means working dynamically, with other government contractors and civil servants. Working with people outside of your company means you'll likely encounter different working styles and cultural norms. At the same time, working as part of a larger team allows us to deliver on projects of larger scale and complexity.

The government also imposes a level of bureaucracy that is typically not present in a company of our size in the private sector. We operate in a regulated environment, where checks and compliance is built into the process of building software. This can make the path to production slower and some decisions, such as tools and processes, lie outside of our control. However, beyond writing code, finding and recommending ways to improve the way government software is built is one of the highest-leverage ways we help fulfill our mission. While our work is to build new systems with up-to-date technology, we have to do that within an existing ecosystem. Our work is building functional, resilient software for production. We don't build flashy prototypes that don't work for real people.

What you'll do

  • Collaborate with the product team, government stakeholders, and other contractors to build new systems and make improvements to existing systems.
  • Design and spec out major functionality and flows.
  • Drive ideas from concept to production, from sketching and wireframing to implementation and launching to production.
  • Participate in planning and breaking down requirements into tasks.
  • Review code and give feedback on technical specs.
  • Make improvements by proposing new tools and practices.

What we're looking for

  • At least two years of experience working in an agile, multidisciplinary team environment, preferably designing and building medium or large-scale web applications
  • Experience mapping and driving systemic improvements within complex service environments
  • Understanding of web and mobile user interface design best practices
  • Significant experience in JavaScript, CSS, and responsive design
  • Demonstrated ability to design, build, and test semantic, accessible, Section 508 compliant web applications.
  • Understanding of inclusive design methodologies
  • Some experience with a modern JavaScript framework, such as React, Vue.js, Angular or Ember
  • Familiarity with a JavaScript testing framework such as Jest, Jasmine, or Mocha
  • Tenacity to dive into problems and iterate in working code
  • Equal parts systems thinker and advocate for users
  • Highly resourceful, reliable, and detail-oriented
  • Ability to think strategically around trade-offs and short term vs. long term benefits
  • An adaptive, empathetic, collaborative and positive mindset
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, technical and otherwise

Things that are not important to us

  • Whether or not you have a CS or engineering degree.
  • Whether or not you have GitHub contributions. (It's great if you do, but we don't expect it.)
  • Whether or not you have worked at a well-recognized company.

Other requirements:

  • Education: Due to contractual requirements, this role requires a Bachelor's Degree (in any discipline).
  • Residency: Lived in United States at least 3 years out of the last 5 years

We're a small team working to radically improve our government, so everyone that joins us has a direct impact on the direction and success of Nava. We are stewards – we hold a deep responsibility towards the systems that we work with. We are a community – we value collaboration both within our teams and with the many hardworking people within government. We offer generous benefits and equity.

We care deeply about diversity and inclusion at Nava. We are an equal opportunity employer and do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

Note: We participate in E-Verify. Upon hire, we will provide the federal government with your Form I-9 information to confirm that you are authorized to work in the U.S. This role is required to work from the contiguous United States.

  • Full-time

We're the tiny team behind open-source projects like Tailwind CSS, commercial products like Tailwind UI, and the book Refactoring UI. We're hiring another programmer to help us build more awesome UI tools for developers.

About the job

We're looking for someone to work closely with Adam (that's me, the guy who created Tailwind CSS!) to help shape and build the future of our tools and products.

You'd spend your time developing and improving existing projects, for example:

  • Building new component and page examples Steve designs for Tailwind UI
  • Implementing a componentization strategy for our Tailwind UI templates to extract repeated patterns and make our existing components easier to maintain and faster to develop
  • Building a system for exporting and synchronizing our Tailwind UI component markup with separate Git repositories that we give customers access to
  • Adding support for self-service upgrades to the Tailwind UI app

...as well as contributing directly at the product strategy and creative level to new projects, such as:

  • Designing and developing official React and Vue libraries using Tailwind UI components
  • Planning and developing a new Tailwind UI Ecommerce package
  • Building a live interactive demo application using Tailwind UI to help potential customers see what's possible
  • Adding support for multiple themes to Tailwind UI

We'd also do a ton of open-source work together, like:

  • Working on new Tailwind CSS features like dark mode support or animation utilities
  • Designing and building a typography plugin for Tailwind that makes it easy to style Markdown content
  • Prototyping and evaluating the potential for a CSS-in-JS version of Tailwind

You and I would spend a lot of time pair programming, brainstorming on hard problems, prototyping different ideas, throwing them away, and prototyping them again. You wouldn't be just churning through tickets in a backlog — you'd be helping to design entirely new products, figuring out what exactly we're even building and why.

We're only three people (you'd be number four) which means that even though we each have our areas of expertise, we all wear many hats. We're looking for a programmer, but you'd also help out with things like:

  • Managing GitHub issues and fixing bugs
  • Writing and improving the documentation for the tools we make
  • Answering customer support questions
  • Troubleshooting problems for users in places like Twitter and Discord

If you've ever maintained an open-source project, working with us carries a lot of the same responsibilities. The difference is we all get paid for it and don't have to squeeze in all our work on evenings and weekends.

Here are a few recent projects you might have worked on if you were already part of the team:

  • Building the first batch of Marketing Header components for Tailwind UI using Tailwind CSS, vanilla HTML, and a little bit of Alpine.js for the interactive demos
  • Building a Transition component in React that lets Tailwind UI customers easily style enter/leave transitions with Tailwind utilities
  • Refactoring the actual Tailwind UI application (a Laravel app) to read component data from an isolated SQLite database instead of from the same database that holds customer information, to simplify and speed up deployments without any down-time

About you

We're looking for someone with very strong front-end skills who is an expert in a modern component framework like React or Vue, with experience in a back-end framework like Laravel being a big plus. More important than specific technical skills though is that you're a strong problem solver who loves to learn — we're not experts in everything and we don't expect you to be either.

You might not call yourself a designer, but you know great UI design when you see it and you know when something isn't up to par. Details matter to you, and if the text in a button is off-center by a pixel you will go to the end of the earth to figure out why.

We don't care if you went to school (I dropped out of both university and college!), we just care about what you can do and how you do it. We're all just makers and tinkerers, so as long as you love to build awesome stuff you'll fit right in.

Here are some of the technologies we work with day-to-day right now:

  • Tailwind CSS itself is written in modern JavaScript (and targets Node.js, not the browser), and tested with Jest
  • The Tailwind UI web application is a traditional server-rendered Laravel 7 application, enhanced with a little bit of Alpine.js
  • Tailwind UI components are authored in plain HTML + Alpine (but we'd love your help migrating to a more maintainable approach)
  • The Tailwind documentation website is currently built with Jigsaw (a Laravel-based static site generator) and Vue.js, but we are planning to rebuild it with Next.js and MDX in the coming months

One of the biggest projects we're going to be tackling later this year is developing official Tailwind UI React and Vue libraries, so long term we will be doing a lot more complex front-end JavaScript work than we do right now.

Some of the challenges that we expect to face on that project include:

  • Designing user-facing APIs for these libraries that are extremely flexible and powerful, but also easy to get started with
  • Coming up with an approach that supports multiple color palette options, while still being PurgeCSS-friendly
  • Building the interactive components (dropdowns, modals, etc.) with all accessibility best practices in mind, including correct use of ARIA attributes, proper keyboard navigation, and handling complex issues like focus trapping

Pay and benefits

This is a fully remote, full-time (40 hour per week) position, and you can choose your own hours. All we ask is that you plan to overlap around ~4 hours per day with 8am-5pm EST because I am sick of always programming by myself.

The salary for this position is between $115,000 — $135,000 USD (or $160,000 – $195,000 CAD) based on experience, paid in your local currency. We'll do the currency conversion when you're hired and deal with any exchange fluctuation on our side.

The position includes 4 weeks (20 days) of paid time off, plus 10 additional days for local national holidays. You're also free to take additional time off here and there as needed for any reasonable reason, like of course if you are sick, but also if you need the morning off to take your pet to the vet, or need an afternoon off to drive a loved one to the airport, whatever. At the end of the day all that matters to us is that we're making progress on what we're building together — we're not interested in tracking time.

We are committed to working at a sustainable and healthy pace, and we believe 6-8 hours is more than enough time to get a solid day's work done.

We will buy you any equipment you need to do your best work, including a computer, external display, office chair — whatever you need. If you need to rent a desk at a co-working space, we'll pay for that as well.

We're a Canadian company, so the position is permanent/full-time in spirit but a contract role on paper since we can't actually hire anyone outside of Canada as a traditional employee. That means it does not include certain benefits like health insurance or a retirement plan, so we've tried to account for that in the compensation.

Wiki Education Software Developer
  • Remote Anywhere
  • Full-time

May 15, 2020

This job post is over 30 days old. It's very likely the position is already filled.
Try applying to a more recent job post instead.

As Wiki Education’s Software Developer, you will work with our Chief Technology Officer to build and maintain the Wiki Education Dashboard, an open source web app built with React and Ruby on Rails that empowers thousands of instructors, librarians, and others across the globe to organize newcomer-friendly Wikipedia editing projects and track the contributions of these new Wikipedians. You’ll create new features that help people do more and better work on Wikipedia, Wikidata, and other free educational projects. You’ll talk with the Wiki Education staff, instructors, and students who rely on your work. You’ll fix bugs, solve user experience problems, make accessibility improvements, and remove performance bottlenecks. You’ll contribute patches to the upstream projects we depend on. You’ll provide technical mentorship to interns and volunteer code contributors. You’ll refactor, write tests, monitor deployments, and ensure that we maintain a livable, newcomer-friendly codebase. Sometimes you’ll pair program, or work on WordPress and Salesforce, or use any of a wide variety of technical tools in the wider Wikimedia ecosystem. With the rest of the Wiki Education team, you’ll help make Wikipedia a more reliable and comprehensive resource for the millions of people across the world who rely on it every day.

Background

Wikipedia is an incredible community and a valuable educational resource. But the experience for new users has fallen behind, holding back Wikipedia’s potential to achieve its goal: a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge. There remains a large gap between traditional knowledge institutions — universities, libraries, archives, museums — and Wikipedia. Wiki Education’s mission is to bridge that gap, finding ways to bring new contributors and new knowledge to Wikipedia. As a small nonprofit with a technology stack outside of Wikipedia’s own legacy infrastructure, we have the freedom to experiment with new ideas, iterate quickly, and tackle big problems. We’ll build great free and open source technology, nurture a vibrant development community, and — if we can pull it off — save Wikipedia by supporting the next generation of contributors.

Minimum qualifications

  • Excellent communication skills
  • Strong frontend JavaScript skills
  • Strong HTML and CSS skills
  • Experience with React
  • Experience with Ruby on Rails

Bonus qualifications

  • Experience deploying and scaling Rails apps
  • Experience maintaining open source software projects with many contributors
  • Experience mentoring junior developers
  • Visual and UI design expertise
  • i18n and/or a11y expertise
  • Salesforce configuration experience
  • Experience with payment systems
  • WordPress development experience
  • Wikipedia editing experience
  • Familiarity with the US higher education system

About the position

We’re open to candidates with a range of experience levels. The ideal candidate will be a senior-level developer with extensive experience designing and building modern web applications; junior- and mid-level developers with a strong foundation in JavaScript and Ruby will also be considered. The position is full-time and remote.

Trips to San Francisco for Wiki Education all-staff meetings are required twice per year. Applicants must be legally authorized to work in the United States.

Salary

$80,000 – $110,000 (depending on experience), with generous benefits
