We’re looking for a senior JavaScript developer with an itch for applying the most exciting JavaScript resources in the market to build client-facing and internal tools.

  • Make decisions that matter in the full development process.
  • Participate in code reviews and share knowledge to ensure we ship quality code.
  • Be a mentor for less experienced team members within the development team.
  • Improve development practice within your team.

Who You Are:

  • 5+ years of hands-on experience with JavaScript, including backend (e.g. Node.js, Express) and frontend (e.g. Vue, Angular, Svelte).
  • Experienced with modern JS/TS tools (Babel, SWC, esbuild, current ES standards) and statically typed languages or typing tools for JS (TypeScript, Flow, Elm).
  • Hands-on experience with databases (SQL or NoSQL).
  • Experienced with git and team collaboration through pull requests.
  • Knowledge of JS testing frameworks (Jest, Mocha).
  • Experienced with frontend build tools (Webpack, Rollup, Vite).
  • Understanding of web hosting, server infrastructure or server management.

Our Benefits:

  • Flexible and remote-first environment.
  • Annual remote expense budget.
  • Flexible PTO.
  • Paid parental leave.
  • Annual professional development budget: available after one year with Kinsta.
  • Sabbatical: available after three years with Kinsta (and every three years thereafter).
