Why We Do It

Knowing where you’re going is an amazing feeling, but sometimes the next step isn’t so clear. We are an entirely new approach to career fulfillment for everyone who’s stuck, looking to make moves, or simply wanting to do and achieve more.

We are the solution to that all-important question: Where Do I Start?

Our goal is to unlock the potential of everyone in the workplace so they can achieve success on their own terms. When you have what you need when you need it... That’s How You Land It!

Why You?

  • You enjoy transforming UI/UX wireframes, hi-fi designs, and clickable prototypes into well-crafted code.
  • You care as much about how the platform looks as you do how it works. The experiences you build will surprise and delight every Landit member.
  • You know how to optimize the performance of Javascript and React code to maximize performance, and structure your code in a way that's organized and maintainable.
  • You enjoy taking an active role in the product development process, working with UI/UX designers, product management, and other engineers to bridge the gap between graphical design and technical implementation.
  • You care about quality and you know what it means to ship high-quality code.

How You Will Change the World in this Role

  • Implement New Products—Work closely with the VP of Engineering, other engineers, designers, and product managers. Define, test, and execute new user-facing features using React, Redux, Material-UI, and other mobile-optimized technologies. Build reusable libraries and tools to help the team move faster and write more reliable code.
  • Optimize Application for Maximum Speed and Scalability—Our product and stack are constantly evolving, so we value versatile engineers who seek out the right tool for the job, and who aren’t afraid of exploring the unfamiliar. We'll count on you to identify new (or new-to-us) technologies, frameworks, and libraries that enrich our members' experience.
  • Contribute to Every Stage of the Product Development Process— Analyze the needs of our members, clients, coaches, and internal team to inform design and development decisions. Be a key contributor to our product development process, from conceptualization to launch to support.

Why We'll Love You

  • 4+ years of relevant work experience in front-end development with modern front-end frameworks such as React or Angular, with at least 1 year of production React-Redux experience.
  • A deep understanding of core front-end technologies (HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, DOM manipulation, and scripting)
  • Awareness of top web application security risks and techniques for mitigating them.
  • Experience with responsive/reactive web design and implementation, including grid layouts.
  • An understanding of how to structure your code using best practices and tools, including React architectural patterns and unobtrusive Javascript.
  • Experience with React Native is a plus.
  • A portfolio of previous work is strongly preferred.
