Staance is a company that deals in emotion. We want users to firmly connect with our product. Delivering a beautiful, minimalist and intuitive experience will reinforce our brand in the hearts and minds of our valued community. Let’s deliver new and innovative solutions to millions of people on every continent so that they can interact with one another and share personal opinions on the stories that matter. We are challenging people to think concisely, speak up and be heard.

The web platform team builds the front-end tools and web experiences that empower Staance’s core web properties, which include Staance.com, social presence platforms, blogs and business tools to manage our content. These web properties must not only scale to support millions of unique visitors a month, but they must also handle rapid change and experimentation in a sustainable fashion.

As a senior engineer on the web team, you will be working on the front-end, where most people first encounter Staance. You’ll have cutting-edge technology at your disposal to make a powerful first impression. Your passion and expertise in all things HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and your ability to work closely with designers, will bring the best experiences possible without being hindered by legacy browsers.

HERE ARE THE KINDS OF SKILLS WE’RE LOOKING FOR:

  • Web Technologies. You’ve built side projects or professionally utilize the latest stacks and libraries such as Node.js, React, Angular, Rails, LESS, SASS, CoffeeScript, etc. You are excited by the amazing pace with which the web continues to evolve. You seek new methods and tools to make great websites faster and better, both on the front-end and back-end.
  • Bias towards action. You believe that speed and quality can be achieved at the same time. You’ve shown good judgment, shipping as fast as possible, products that are built in a responsible and sustainable way. You’re willing to make mistakes along the way and make sure you learn from them.
  • Make teams better. You can easily lead a team to the finish line or go deep on a huge challenge. You work well in fast moving teams and have no problem working with others to solve difficult problems. You support your team as much as your team supports you.
  • Experimentation. You have great intuition and offer well-parsed hypotheses regarding presentation, but you’re never too certain to test and test again.
  • 60fps makes the world right again. Nothing gets you pumped like buttery-smooth transitions and scrolling.

 PERKS:

  • Employees are showered with attention.
  • Offsite socials.
  • Sharp, motivated co-workers in a fun office environment.
  • The rare opportunity to work on a product with potential to impact how people all over the world discover and interact with today’s stories. We’re enabling real people to take a stand on the stories that matter to them, influencing real-world conversations and, hopefully, outcomes!

BENEFITS (U.S.)

  • Everyone loves free food, so while you’re in the office, food and drinks are free.
  • Catered lunches.
  • Paid holidays.
  • Medical/dental/vision package to fit your needs.
  • Unlimited vacation policy; work hard and take time when you need it without duress or guilt.

We’re bringing Staance to every person in the world with local-focused stories and international expansion. We need brains, passion and energy to make it happen and to do it with style.
