Software Engineer (Javascript Developer)


We’re looking for incredible, well-rounded web developers to join our team. If you’re the right one for us, you love building products with web technologies like JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS3. You take great pride in your work, enjoy coding in your spare time, and have too many github repositories to count.  You see 30 lines of code but know you can do the same with only 5. You can take a conceptual idea and transform it into an awesome web application with your own code and UI/UX expertise.

You have an insatiable appetite for learning new skills and constantly improving existing ones. You’re going to help us make Spotify even better, whether it’s by command-line hacking, building new features, product design, or optimizing performance. We are passionate about what we do; and we expect no less from you!

Responsibilities:

  • Build web-based applications on the Spotify platform with focus on infrastructure services, data visualization and enabling internal and external developers by creating great libraries.

  • Interface with other teams to incorporate their innovations and vice versa

  • Conduct design and code reviews

  • Deployment of your code and coordination across teams


Requirements:

  • Expert knowledge of developing rich applications using Javascript and other web technologies (HTML5/CSS3)

  • The ability to write high-performance, reusable code for UI components

  • Strong product design and user experience skills

  • Aware of but not reliant on MVC Javascript Frameworks (Spine.js, Backbone, Ember)

  • Passion for performance debugging and benchmarking

  • Excellent analytical and problem solving skills

  • Strong spoken and written communication skills


Nice to have:

  • Enthusiasm for working with Agile processes (Scrum/Kanban/TDD/XP/...) in a team environment

  • Solid experience developing web applications using PHP, Ruby or Python

  • Dedication to unit testing, code review and other quality-oriented practices

  • Passionate about building beautiful and intuitive user interfaces

  • Participation in free and open source software development
