React Engineer

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.

As a Software Engineer (Frontend JavaScript) at SpotOn, you’ll be tasked with building component-based web software, using modern best practices and a “Keep It Seriously Simple” approach where possible. Our frontend architecture was retooled last year with ES2016 (through Babel), RiotJS (we’re currently the largest user of this library that we know of aside from the authors), Redux, and Webpack. We’re looking for someone to build out new products using these technologies (or better ones, if you can make an argument for them!), as well as continue migrating our ever-shrinking pile of BackboneJS pages to the new setup.

We know frontend (or arguably even JavaScript in general) development can be a mess, so we try to target only the best platforms and use only the best tooling we can find. You don’t really need to worry about anything older than IE11, you won’t be writing (or reading much of - many of our rewrites are completely white room) any messy ES5, and we kicked NPM to the curb the morning Yarn was released.

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.

If this describes you…

  • Able to work on-site in our Chicago, IL office on a full-time basis
  • Experience and Familiar with the Node.js ecosystem
  • Have 3+ years of real-world experience with modern JavaScript best practices
  • Component-based architecture
  • One-way data flow
  • Asynchronous programming (callbacks, promises, async/await)
  • Transpilation and source maps * Bonus points: you can MacGyver together some survival level (or better) Python to feed your frontend with data.
  • Mega bonus points: You have published npm modules

… then here’s a bit about what we have to offer!

  • Health, Dental, and Vision insurance
  • Relocation stipend available
  • Reasonable work-from-home flexibility
  • West-loop office has easy access to all major CTA & Metra train lines
  • Casual dress code
  • Kitchen stocked with drinks and snacks
