Senior Frontend Engineer
Moving to a new home -- whether across town or across the country -- is one of the more stressful experiences in life. Bellhop was founded to fix that. We’re a fast-growing, well-funded tech startup that aims to make moving seamless and enjoyable. From an engineering perspective, this requires a focus on scalability, reliability, logistics, and most importantly, customer obsession. After all, customers' personal belongings are in our hands.
To be successful, a strong candidate finds opportunities for efficiency, is a natural problem solver, and is capable of multitasking and working cross-functionally with stakeholders across Product, Engineering, Customer Experience, and other teams.
As a Senior Frontend Engineer on the Web team, you will be an independent contributor for large initiatives within an Epic oriented squad.
What you'll be doing:
- You will be responsible for building both client facing applications as well as internal tooling applications.
- You should be able to translate our company and customer needs into functional and appealing responsive applications based on limited design direction using existing UI’s as a point of reference.
- While this position does not require extensive UI/UX design experience, a basic understanding of UI/UX principles and best practices are expected.
- Ultimately, you should be able to create both functional and attractive applications while ensuring a clean user experience and consistency in designs across our product suite.
- Assist in grooming tickets with Product owners.
- Maintain and improve our marketing site and internal tooling applications.

- Write functional requirement documents and guides.
- Help Backend developers with troubleshooting client side implementations.
- Ensure high quality UI standards and brand consistency.
- Stay up to date on emerging technologies.
- This position covers a variety of products and an ability to alternate between code bases within a sprint is necessary to be successful in this role. As this position is remote, consistent and predictable access to Slack is required.
- Take products from MVP to production. You think an MVP is the best way to make a point. The sooner you can ship and iterate, the better.
- Manage individual project priorities, deadlines, and deliverables.
- Advocate for software engineering best practices and principles.
- Build robust and scalable web applications that are resistant to failure.

- Familiarity with software like Figma and content management systems.
- Excellent analytical and multitasking skills.
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
- Ability to work effectively in a fast-paced environment, managing multiple projects simultaneously and consistently delivering on time.
- High degree of organization and eye for detail.
- You thrive in ambiguity and bring an optimistic view of what can be accomplished.
- Ability to get stuff done (GSD) on a small team with ownership and accountability.
