Senior Front-End Developer
SpotOn - Chicago, IL (In-House only, but relocation available)
With a tech team based out of an open and sunny office in Chicago’s West Loop, SpotOn is a fast-growing Point-of-Sale, marketing, loyalty, sales, and reputation tracking platform that helps customers check in to earn rewards at their favorite local businesses using our web, mobile phone, and tablet products. Business owners can use data generated by these check-ins, as well as sales data, to reach out and connect with their customers, and manage their online reputation, and experience the benefits of loyal, returning customers.
No frontend software is totally complete without some tests to prove it does what you claim it does. You’ll be working with our other JS-capable developers and our automated test engineer to test, through CasperJS, as much functionality as possible - including writing tests for some pages written before we started focusing on this. Ideally, seeing a green checkmark next to your pull request (as certified by our automated Jenkins setup), which included some new tests of your own, makes you smile.
This position involves a lot more collaboration than reporting, but if you’re curious about structure, your work will be vetted by a couple of lead developers, and your pay stubs will be handed to you by the co-CEO himself - probably wearing a T-shirt or polo of some form.
