Full Stack Engineer - Postlight


Job Description

We’re hiring talented Full Stack Engineers who want to build ambitious products using modern tools. “Full Stack Engineer” can mean many things. At Postlight, it refers to a person who can build entire front end web applications and deploy complex services to the cloud that support those applications.

We ship, and we ship often. Millions of people use our products, and we support them for years. As a result, we care deeply about code quality. The thought process behind a line of code is just as important as the line itself. We review pull requests and love having discussions about how solutions can be made DRYer, clearer, and safer.

We use the right tools for the job. That means that we’re always evaluating ways to work smarter and faster and get the maximum amount of joy out of the job. The result is that we use modern tools on a modern stack.


Requirements

Below are two types of applications we build frequently: a modern frontend application and a modern backend API. We’ve listed example technologies we use for each part of the stack. The more apps you’ve built using the technologies below, the better fit you are for Postlight. We don’t expect applicants to have experience with every technology below. Many of our current full stack engineers have learned skills from this list on the job.

Modern JavaScript Front End App

  • Languages: JavaScript via Babel
  • Type Systems: Flowtype, TypeScript
  • Linting: ESLint, Prettier
  • Frameworks: React, React Native, Vue.js
  • CSS: Flexbox, PostCSS, CSS in JS (Aphrodite, JSS), Functional CSS (Tachyons, Basscss)
  • Build Tools: Webpack, Rollup
  • Graphics: SVG, D3

Modern Backend API

  • Languages: JavaScript, Python, Elixir, Java, PHP
  • API Standards: GraphQL, JSON API
  • Frameworks: Express, RESTify, Phoenix, Serverless, WordPress
  • Containerization: Docker, Vagrant
  • Data Storage: SQL, NoSQL, Firebase, Redis, ElasticSearch
  • Cloud Providers: AWS, Google Cloud Platform

Whether working on site or remotely, your communication skills will be as important as your technical ones. Collaborating across time zones requires constant, clear communication and coordination, via Slack, GitHub comments, documents, and frequentvideo conferences. Postlight is headquartered in New York City, but a third of our team works remotely. We know how to keep everyone on the same page, and so should you.
