About the role

Feather is redefining furniture rental for city living and helping people feel at home no matter where they live or how long they plan on staying. By giving people smarter options, Feather is able to keep more furniture in homes and out of landfills.

We are looking for a talented Senior Frontend Engineer to join our team. In this role, you’ll play a key part in the development of software solutions in a mostly uncharted space: reverse logistics and subscription to physical goods. Our Frontend Engineers build innovative web applications focusing on usability, accessibility, performance, and designing exceptional UIs.

What you’ll do:

  • Work with our Design/UX team to create beautiful, modern UIs
  • Build applications that our internal and field operations teams use every day
  • Work with the UX and Data team to deliver key analytics about how users interact with our applications
  • Be a proponent of testable, scalable solutions
  • Collaborate closely with senior engineers while providing guidance to other engineers as the team continues to grow
  • Help define the coding standards and best practices for our engineering team as we grow

What you have:

  • An eagerness to join a fast-paced, growing, and evolving environment
  • 5+ years of experience building performant UIs with modern languages and frameworks
  • 3+ years working with ReactJS/Redux (or similar, such as Angular/Vue)
  • 3+ years configuring and optimizing Webpack builds
  • Strong understanding of modern asynchronous architecture (lazy/optimistic loading, handling 'offline' application state, etc.)
  • Strong understanding of how to measure and optimize frontend performance and pagespeed metrics
  • Experience developing with a test-driven mentality
  • Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills

Technology Stack: You don't need to have experience with all of these. We’re looking for talented and smart engineers who are willing to ramp up on these technologies.

  • Language: Typescript, ReactJS, and NodeJS
  • Datastores: MySQL 8 (RDS), Redis, and Elasticsearch
  • Infrastructure: AWS, Docker, Git, and Circle CI
  • Other: Storybook

What you'll get when joining Feather:

  • Competitive compensation
  • Health, vision, dental, and life insurance
  • Access to 401(k) and commuter benefits
  • Flexible vacation and paid time off
  • Sponsored lunches and unlimited office snacks
  • Monthly in-office massages, team events, and a monthly wellness stipend
  • A 50% discount on your own Feather subscription
  • The latest hardware to get the job done

Why you should join Feather

Feather is redefining furniture rental for city living and helping people feel at home no matter where they live or how long they plan on staying. By giving people smarter options, Feather is able to keep more furniture in homes and out of landfills.

Monthly furniture payments can go toward ownership or you can simply return the furniture you no longer need. Those items endure our extensive refurbishment process before they are sent to live in their next home. Our reverse logistics platform allows our customers to swap and add new furniture at any time, helping limit furniture waste.
