Movable Ink powers meaningful experiences in email and on the web for the biggest brands in the world. They rightly expect our product to meet a very high standard of stability, performance, and an ever-improving set of features.

The Principal Front End Engineer will be a technical leader for a cross-product team of Engineers focused on front-end solutions. This will include: helping to bootstrap and set foundations for new initiatives; lead efforts to standardize best-practices in Javascript and CSS through training, pairing, and code reviews; create, manage and maintain infrastructure efforts across the product suite; and vet, contribute to, or create open source projects used in our stack.

Fast-forward one year. Here’s what you will have accomplished:

  • Identified and standardized similar, but conflicting patterns in our code base. (aka: You deleted a lot of code.)
  • Working with our design team, expanded and polished our shared UI library that looks great and is easy to use
  • Became a go-to resource for technical questions both because you have ways of quickly finding the answers and because you’re so darn nice about it.
  • Managed major changes in the codebase as a result of new and improved patterns in the Javascript ecosystem by both implementing and working with individual teams to incorporate into sprint work
  • Jumped into product team sprints for short bursts to help get a new project off the ground
  • Mentored developers newer to our frameworks and codebase


  • A meaningful set of experience working with Javascript and modern frameworks
  • Experience contributing to and maintaining open source projects (or frequently-updated shared projects within an organization)
  • A solid understanding of front-end build and development tools
  • Experience leading and/or mentoring other developers
