Front End Development Lead

Glympse® is the pioneer in real-time temporary location sharing technology. We incorporate location sharing into a wide variety of consumer and business scenarios, providing better customer experiences and a robust platform.  We’ve partnered with many organizations including Charter Communications, BMW/MINI, TruGreen, GM, Gogo Inflight, Origin Energy, Orkin, Jaguar/Land Rover, Mercedes, Rogers Communications, Samsung, Sky, Verizon, Virgin Media, and Volvo which have integrated the Glympse brand and enterprise platform into their own products and applications.

Glympse has many unique internal and external customers to satisfy, with a wide range of design and development challenges that need solving. As the Front End Development Lead you will set the standard in development practices related to the front end stack, and serve as a key technology visionary and leader to the team at large. You will act as a go between and a key technical advisor between Products, Platform and Executive team members on the design and development of software initiatives and coordinate with UI/UX designers and back end developers to implement desired functionality

You should have an overriding passion for solving complex tech problems in interactive mobile, user-level applications, and/or real-time location-based services. The team is driven to go the extra mile to get the product right, make it better, and do what it takes to create better experiences.  Flexibility goes a long ways at Glympse. Everyone in the company is naturally flexible across roles and responsibilities, across functions and vertically within functions. We need people to do whatever job needs doing – running a test script, writing a prototype, developing a new feature, etc.

Day to day you will:

  • Prototype and develop products that leverage Glympse’s core real-time location-tracking functionality.
  • Build medium to large, dynamic web applications of moderate to high complexity using modern JavaScript design patterns and tools.
  • Support and maintain existing production code and develop new enhancements and products.
  • Contribute to both design and implementation for web applications and mobile libraries.
  • Provide technical leadership by mentoring less experienced developers and new team members.

What we look for:

  • Extensive experience with JavaScript, CSS, HTML
  • Experience with at least one modern client side JavaScript framework or library including React and Angular
  • Experience with common libraries like Express.js and using Node as a web server or microservice
  • BS in Computer Science or related degree, or work history equivalent

Other preferred qualifications include:

  • Active and demonstrable work on the current iOS and Android platforms
  • References to shipped products in the App Stores that represent your skillset
  • Participation or desire to contribute back to open source projects.

What we offer:

We are a small engineering team that works well together. As an organization we are customer focused and passionate about building quality software.  We listen closely to what customers tell us they need and we work to deliver and ensure our platform, applications and services are meetings those needs. We are open to trying new things, whether it’s an improvement to an existing feature or something radically different.  We want to listen and deliver on these ideas.

Glympse offices are centrally located in the heart of Capitol Hill with modern space that speaks loudly of our culture: collaborative, fun and committed to creating a diverse and open environment. We have daily stand ups and weekly company updates by our CEO over catered lunches that allow us to stay connected and be on the pulse of our business and technology. We take time to celebrate successes big and small, so you will often find us at the hot spots in the city celebrating another milestone achieved!

Our salaries are competitive and there is a range of benefits to choose from.
