Frontend Performance Engineer (m/f/d)

Pitch, a new company from the makers of Wunderlist, is looking for a Senior Performance Engineer with deep experience in JavaScript and browser performance — if you’re interested in shaving milliseconds off of boot timingsand keeping rendering at 60 fps, you’re in the right place. We love performance optimizations, metrics instrumentation, and iterating on best-practices with the rest of the frontend teams.

Who we are looking for

  • 5+ years working with frontend frameworks and libraries professionally (and having built or contributed to some is a big plus.)

  • Knowledge of React (Reagent), Re-frame or similar reactive systems and their internals

  • Experience with ClojureScript, functional programming and immutable data structures is preferred, but not required

  • You know the weirdest parts of JavaScript and love working with it anyway.

  • You know your way around the performance profiling and debugging tools in your web browser of choice.

  • You will have the responsibility to dive into a new system to understand performance bottlenecks that excites you.

  • You are a strong communicator and are equally comfortable talking with your immediate team, other frontend engineers and backend infrastructure engineers.

  • You are ready to learn, but just as excited to teach.

  • You understand that the perfect solution is informed by the people who will be building on your work, rather than being purely dependent on technical merits. Empathy is a feature.

If you tick all these boxes we'd love to get to know you <3

We value diversity of perspective and seek to build an inclusive workplace that welcomes people from all different backgrounds (including dogs).
