About the Role:

 Our mission is to make a marketplace platform accessible to anyone - product developers, branded partners, or end-users.  We're powering nearly a dozen marketplaces, and with many more ready to launch, our numbers are growing at a staggering rate.  Our front-end has the responsibility of delivering a generative experience for all, and with that comes some interesting problems to solve: api availability, scalability, optimization, and modularizing a data-driven ui.

JavaScript engineers from an entry-level to the most senior-expertise are an integral part of our UI Engineering team, responsible for generating a flexible and robust user interface from APIs that can stand up to a variety of customer requirements. Projects include building templates and live template editors with Backbone.js, releasing open-source javascript libraries for our billing engine, designing and building interactions on marketplaces, and applying high standards for accessibility, performance and browser compatibility.
