Bamboo is in its early stages of development so this is an exciting opportunity to exercise your expertise and help us build it into something great. You will do well in this role if you are comfortable collaborating with both designers and engineers to build reusable UI building blocks and a design system. Experience doing this on moderate to large sized teams is very valuable to us. We are looking for individuals with a deep understanding of HTML, CSS, UI design, and how to build accessible and reusable web components using JavaScript.

  • Seeks to understand the specific needs of peers and creates considerate solutions that accommodate varying concerns across teams.
  • Driven by desires for consistency, efficiency, and quality.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

What you'll do
  • You will be building components for cutting-edge web applications using TypeScript and React and following WAI-AA standards.
  • You will be building components with significant requirements outside the presentation layer, using an approach that accommodates these functional concerns.
  • You will be collaborating with designers and engineers to build Bamboo and evolve our existing UI to use it.
  • You will be building scalable and informative documentation in the form of references, guides, and code comments while reinforcing Bamboo at each step.
  • You will help improve the entire engineering team's processes around building UI and using Bamboo.
  • Experience with React, TypeScript, Figma, Storybook, or as a designer is a plus.

An Insider's view of Tock

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The best way I can describe it is “chill focus”. It’s much different than the kitchens I came up in. The best part about working here is the people. No one is here simply for a paycheck, but to be a part of something bigger. Everyone helps move the company forward while still being a great person.

The 8 foot dinosaur watching over us helps too.

Jeremy

Hospitality Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Every day in sales here is different than the last, and we have the flexibility to create our own schedules. Some are spent researching and reaching perfect matches for Tock, some are spent meeting with some of the world's best chefs in the coolest cities, and some are spent rolling up our sleeves and ensuring successful onboarding for our clients.

Brian

Sales Development Executive

What makes someone successful on your team?

A successful member of our team needs to be determined, passionate about our product and the success of our partners, persistent and flexible in trying new ways to reach potential new partners, and organized to easily manage your deals and leads. An optimistic and friendly attitude also goes a long way!

Maggie

Territory Account Executive

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

For those that love food and eating out, what if I asked you, where should I go to dinner. What would you say? Tough question, right? The restaurant scene in Chicago and across the entire world is more crowded now than ever before. So at Tock we’re helping restaurants compete and succeed with tools to make them better businesses.

Dan

Director of Design

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I've never worked with a more collaborative, talented, and hard-working group of people, across all of our teams. Everyone is willing to learn and adapt as the company grows and scales. Not only do all departments have full visibility into what the others are doing, but we actively seek out ways to help and improve lines of communication.
