ABOUT THE ROLE:
The Front End Developer will work on all web properties at Resy. You’ll be working closely with product, bizdev, and marketing to create specs and build products to help us meet our goals. You’ll be an important part of our small but growing team and have the opportunity to work on projects that are vital to our business.
Web properties include resy.com, os.resy.com, restaurant analytics, internal facing admin tools, and an embeddable booking widget used on restaurants' websites such as Lilia (NYC), Alter (MIA), The Dabney (DC), Animal (LA), and Petit Crenn (SF). Tens of thousands of users a day are looking for reservations on the web through Resy. Restaurants rely on us to run their businesses. Help us build the new restaurant experience.
WHO YOU ARE:
- You want to make websites that are beautiful, fast, and work on every screen. As such, you code responsive and mobile first. You work closely with designers and are comfortable in Sketch or Photoshop grabbing assets you need out of mockups and optimizing for use on the web.
- You have experience working on websites that have high traffic and need to be highly scalable. You care about performance and take great satisfaction in getting every bit of speed out of the frontend that you can.

- You have worked on an e-commerce or other highly transactional site. You're used to working with large data models for things like products and complex interactions with APIs to manage transactions.
- You are capable of working both collaboratively and independently. You enjoy working with others to find the best solution. But you can also take a rough direction and fill in the details yourself.
- You care. You care about the work you’re doing. You care about code quality. You care about what we're all working together to accomplish.
- You have experience with the following:
- React and Redux or strong experience in similar frameworks (e.g. Angular and ngrx)
- Unit Testing: we use Jasmine and Jest
