Demand.io: Senior Front End Engineer at Demand.io (Los Angeles, CA) (Los Angeles, CA)
Posted: Jan 19, 2022
Demand.io is building the best way to discover, compare and save on the products consumers want — helping creators and brands thrive along the way. We harness the power of community to provide answers to shopper questions (big and small), help consumers find the products that are best for their needs, curate the internet's most reliable coupons, inspire shoppers to buy with confidence, and more.
If you're a Front End engineer here, you'll be partnering with the Heads of Product and Technology to bring this vision to life by developing world class user experiences that engage millions of shoppers across the world. We're looking for someone who carries a strong user-focused mindset with a deep passion for solving real world problems. You're comfortable dealing with lots of moving pieces and carry the horsepower and zeal to jump between crafting pixel perfect, interactive user experiences that are production ready to prototyping new concepts for testing how we shape the future of our brands.
We're driving business decisions through quant/qual data to make informed decisions and see every idea as hypothesis that requires experimentation to evaluate how it resonates with users. It's critical that we serve users wherever they are — which means embracing the opportunity to develop for new technologies and platforms. There's a lot of work to do to become THE shopping tool for consumers, and we'd love you to be a part of it.
