Second Street is hiring a Senior Front-End Developer for our cross-functional product development team. We work together to ship code every day and are constantly looking for ways to improve. This role includes project work and guiding teammates through particularly vexing issues and large projects, all while keeping an eye toward usability and user experience.

Position Summary

Are you looking to join a fast-paced team and help lead 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 communities across world 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 in downtown St. Louis which is made up of designers, product managers, testers, and software engineers. You'll enjoy a high level of autonomy while also working very collaboratively 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: 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 senior front-end developer you'll take on project work and guide your teammates through particularly vexing issues and large projects, all while keeping an eye toward usability and user experience thanks to your front-end experience.
