You’ll have a strong frontend engineering background (React.js/JavaScript) and will thrive on working in a fast paced environment where you will be working on multiple experiments at any given time. Preferably you’ll have some previous experience of running experiments, A/B testing and using data to help you make decisions. Exposure to Node.js or another backend language would be highly preferable.

This position will directly impact millions of users, so if you want to be a part of something big, this one’s for you!
