Are you looking to join a fast-paced team and help bring it to success? Are you a well-rounded team player with front-end development experience that can work with the team to find a great solution, write the logic to make it work, and then make it beautiful with CSS? Do you want the ability to impact meaningful change and develop a community where you work? Second Street could be exactly what you've been looking for!
You will be a member of our cross-functional product development team which is made up of designers, project managers, testers, and software engineers. You'll enjoy a high level of autonomy while also working very collaboratively in-person and remotely using Slack, Trello, and GitHub. We work together to ship code every day and are constantly looking for ways to improve. We are responsible for a suite of long-lived products that receive constant innovation, feedback, iteration, maintenance, and new feature development.
Software engineers at Second Street are fully involved in every part of the process, from planning, to development, to testing, to launch. We care deeply and we do things right with version control, automated testing, code reviews, and occasional pair programming. We also focus on work-life balance, including a flexible schedule and work-from-home opportunities, so you won’t be burning the midnight oil here. As a front-end software engineer you'll create features, fix bugs, and iterate on our existing software, all while keeping an eye toward usability and user experience thanks to your front-end experience.
We are an audience engagement software platform that is used by over 4,000 media companies and marketers. Some of our leading-edge products include online contests, ballots, polls, quizzes, sweepstakes, email, audience insights, and more.
