  • Pushing the bar for front end quality and excellence.


  • Have 5+ years of professional programming experience
  • Have 3+ years of professional experience as a front end engineer building responsive interfaces, working with different kinds of user events, manipulating UI elements, and applying animations/transitions.
  • Hands-on experience in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
  • Good hands-on experience with modern frameworks, ideally with React.
  • Experience writing unit tests and integration tests in Javascript.
  • Experience building various front end applications (i.e., web and mobile), with an understanding of how. interfaces render on different sizes of screens.

  • A love for cross-functional collaboration and transparent communication.
  • Knowledge of best practices in areas like accessibility and security, including experience building according to WCAG AA guidelines.
  • Links to any public git repos, open-source contributions, or apps/websites you’d like to share.

About the interview

Phone Screen

This stage is a more informal call for candidates to get to know more about the role, and for you to evaluate whether it’s a good fit for you. We are looking for people with a strong interest in joining a growing team and motivation to help them.

Behavioral Interview This stage non-technical and geared specifically toward the vision, values, and mission of the company. This conversation gives the candidate an idea of what the culture of the company is like and gives us to opportunity to see how candidates will contribute to it.

Architectural assessment This stage is a 60-minute architectural technical assessment done via screen share. About 45 minutes of the interview are spent in an actual coding environment, with the rest set aside for introductions and questions from the candidate. The coding is meant to be collaborative, somewhat like a paired programming exercise. The coding tasks are meant to be as reflective of the real on-the-job work as possible and often include writing from scratch as well as editing existing code.

Technical Founder Interview The final step in the interview process is a single 30 minute video interview with Nick Sedlet, the technical founder of the company. It's an opportunity for candidates who have a high likelihood of receiving an offer to gain higher level insight into the role the engineering team plays in the business at large, from the person who started it all.

Interview Process Timing The typical interview process takes about 3.5 weeks from start to finish. This tends to be mostly based on our engineering team’s availability. That said, we have moved more quickly and look to accommodate candidates who might have a short timeline or competing offers. The more information you can share about your situation and where you are in the process, the more we can either attempt to expedite/match, or save you time if we cannot.

Why you should join HireArt

We are trying to solve one of the biggest problems in hiring: how to effectively measure a person's fit for a job. We want to do it in a way that is intuitive and transparent for both employers and job-seekers, and which scales to support organizations of any size. We believe that the right solution requires both algorithms and human judgment, and we are developing technologies which incorporate both. We believe that by building a product around new standards for assessment in recruiting, we can dramatically improve the accuracy of hiring decisions, as well as the job-seeking process.
