CustomMade looking for a Principal Front End Engineer

A former member
Post #: 14
Happy New Year Front-Enders!

CustomMade is currently on the hunt for extremely talented, principal level front-end engineers. We're creating a site where we are teaching consumers that they can get anything they can imagine created for them, custom-made and co-created with an artisan. This is going to take some amazing, intuitive front end work --- and lots of iterations. That's why I'm passing this along to the group. A detailed job description is below, feel free to pass along and if at all interested don't hesitate to reach out directly. I'm always happy to hop on a call or grab a coffee if only for the sake of spreading the word about what we're building!

Principal Front End Engineer

CustomMade, a Google Ventures company, is changing the way people shop by making buying custom easier. We want to be an alternative to big box retailers by providing an online marketplace that connects consumers with artisans across the country. Take a look at our vision for this:­.

We are creating a consumer experience where consumers can connect with an artisan maker to co-create something unique. Customers won’t see a shopping cart or checkout tag on our site. Instead they will meet thousands of makers who are thrilled about the prospect of creating something with them.

CustomMade is seeking a Principal Software Engineer to join our team as a front end engineering lead. You’ll have the opportunity to create intuitive, responsive front ends essential for a rapidly growing two-sided commerce marketplace already used by millions of people. Your ideas will directly impact how our product looks and how we build HTML5, CSS and JavaScript interfaces faster and more efficiently.

About Our Engineering Team
The Engineering team at CustomMade is a small team of highly talented engineers who believe that creating great software is a work of passion, creativity and skill. Inspired by CustomMade’s artisan makers, we believe that small teams of empowered engineering makers can create amazing technology. Here are a few of the interesting challenges we are tackling:
• Enabling consumers to visualize things that do not even exist yet
• Building the ideal knowledge graph for a custom two-way marketplace
• Making co-creation between consumers and artisan makers seamless and intuitive

Our current platform is built on Python (Django), Solr/Lucene, MySQL, and more. However, we always keep an eye out for new technologies and approaches to create the best custom marketplace.

About The Job
You will be a hands-on Front End web and software engineering lead with a key voice how we design major portions of our platform and user experience. You’ll—
• Work collaboratively in small, fast-moving teams
• Serve as a technical expert for product and design and a technical lead for fellow engineers
• Turn PSDs into interactive and responsive UIs using HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript
• Optimize our platform experience for all major browsers—desktop, smartphone and tablet
• Create standards, practices and templates improve site manageability
• Contribute to automated testing approaches for the presentation layer

You will be able to make an impact, fast. The work you accomplish will directly correlate with the success of our company. You’ll quickly see your ideas and work live, on our platform and in daily business processes. You will have many opportunities to grow your role and contributions as we continue to grow.

About You
You are passionate about creating the perfect user experience and often think like an end user. You have a mastery of HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript that proves why a web interface cannot simultaneously be rich, interactive, dynamic, and fast (on all major desktop and mobile browsers). You are borderline-obsessive about creating reusable CSS and high-performance JavaScript (perhaps you have even presented or led efforts to help others do this). You embrace using rapid deployments and A/B testing to iterate until you get the user interface and experience “just right.”

Ideally, you can dabble with PhotoShop and love prototyping with product managers and designers. You are comfortable enough working with backend developers to collaborate on API design. You have also mastered Git—preferably in a continuous deployment environment using automated test tools.

What You’ll Get From Us
We love our product. We love working together and going home with feeling that we accomplished something every day. Here is a look at how fast we have grown in 2012 (and how we like to have fun): http://blog.custommad...­.

If you’re passionate about the custom revolution and have what it takes, email Extra bonus if your application comes with a portfolio or link to Github, BitBucket or StackOverflow.
