Senior Front End Developer (US only please)

Retrieved 3 months ago from StackOverflow

Job description

We’re creating a progressive web app to help artists find their fans anywhere around the world and perform in their fans’ home or business and, in so doing, gain a sustainable living wage.

We’ve received a top-tier grant from Google’s startup program by the Director of Engineering and Head of Startup Programs who have both shown deep interest in what we’re building from both a technical and cultural level.

The back end of our PWA is very well architected and about 85% complete. It was developed by Henrik Joreteg using Preact (a faster alternative to React), Parcel, and Workbox with a focus on light weight and highly performant code.

Henrik has been an outspoken and internationally recognized proponent of web-first development. He was the Lead Architect on Starbucks’ recent PWA (which was highlighted at Google I/O 2018) and is now helping a Fortune 10 company build theirs.

Henrik has created extensive documentation and hours of screencasts explaining the architecture decisions as it was being built, so it should be relatively straightforward for a senior-level developer to jump right in.

Before applying, we want to make sure everyone understands that this is a contract position. While Threshold has been offered seed funding from several investors, we’re currently bootstrapping the business so that we can keep focused on our mission: to help bring artists a living wage. Based on our forecasts, we have about a 2 year runway to become self-sustaining- something we think is definitely feasible should we execute well. But, like any startup, there’s an inherent risk.

In addition, because we’re a small company with limited HR resources, we can only hire people within the US at this time. That being said, if you’re a world class developer and feel like this would be a perfect fit for your skills, personality, and worldview feel free to apply and we will put you on our list should we expand in the future.

Thanks for your understanding.
