Evite, the world’s leading digital invitation platform, is seeking a passionate and experienced mid-level Full Stack Web Developer/Software Engineer to join our team in Los Angeles and contribute to our mission of bringing people together to celebrate their most important life moments. 

Our platform supports a million people per day who use our web and mobile applications to help throw and attend parties.  To deliver on our mission to help people party you will need solid computer science fundimentals, and experience with web technologies (Javascript, HTML, CSS, React, as well as a backend framework like Django or Ruby on Rails).  Building websites is easy.  Building a platform at this scale and releasing new multi-platform features with zero downtime multiple times a week is hard.  We can show you how to do it, and our ideal candidate will have things to teach us as well.

We are a small team and we are often called on to use technologies that we haven’t used before.  Being a quick learner with a growth mindset is critical.

You will be developing world-class mobile web and desktop applications using Javascript, React,  HTML/CSS, Python, and working cross functionally with Product and Design teams. The candidate must possess communication skills, critical thinking capabilities, and be a cultural fit. Our ideal candidate should have strong communication that allows them to translate complex findings to all stakeholders. This individual should be driven by an inquisitive curiosity to learn, and can pick up new knowledge and skills independently. Evite is looking for motivated individuals to help bring our “What If” philosophy to life.

Core Capabilities:

  • Ability to build responsively designed client-side experiences across these four front-end technologies (Javascript, HTML, CSS, React)
  • Experience working full stack - our backend is built in Python and Django, but we won’t hold it against you if your experience is in some other backend language or framework.
  • Experience with complex projects and the ability to work cross-team to solve problems

 

Must Have Capabilities:

  • Critical Thinking - You love logic and data. Thinking strategically is your forte. You enjoy diagnosing complex problems and formulating plans of attack to resolve them. You enjoy an environment where everyone is encouraged to add value at the most strategic level.
  • Communication - You're an eloquent speaker who can explain anything to everyone. You are also a clear and concise writer.
  • Cultural Fit - You have a craving to fit in a fast-paced, high-integrity, low hand-holding environment.. EQ is as important as IQ. You want to help bring our "What If" philosophy to life.

 

Responsibilities:

  • Build new features that will be used by a million people per day with an eye towards scalability
  • Maintain existing features
  • Develop responsive browser-based software for both or desktop and mobile web experiences
  • Participate in development of unit tests and code reviews
  • Participate in our Agile Scrum process including standups, sprint planning, and retrospectives

 

Preferred Requirements:

  • At least 2 years of professional programming experience
  • Demonstrated experience with at least one frontend JS framework (React, MobX, Redux, Vue, Angular etc.)
  • Desire to expand your skill sets and learn new technologies
  • Experience with cloud-based platforms is a plus (Google Cloud, AWS, Azure)
