Senior Front-End Web Developer
Two Barrels is hiring a Senior Front-End Web Developer for $150,000/year. You will be a traditional company employee. This is a full time 40 hour/week position with company benefits. This is a remote position. Our main office is in Spokane WA, and we have satellite offices in Austin TX and Salt Lake City UT.
As a Senior Front-End Web Developer at Two Barrels, you’ll be given large-scale web projects and be asked to break these down into tasks for Junior Front-End Developers and Front-End Web Developers while maintaining focus on larger goals and projects. Our ideal candidate would be someone who has been successful in multiple front-end positions over the years and is looking to mentor a crew of talented, less-experienced developers and help take our websites to the next level. That will require you to be someone who doesn’t believe there’s only one right way to do things and your mindset is focused on growth, not the way things currently are.
What’s in a title?
Here at Two Barrels we don’t take titles very seriously. We know for recruiting purposes we need to call our jobs something, so we started with labeling and differentiating them in a fairly traditional way with “junior, mid, senior”. However, we’ve realized that was putting our employees in a box and wasn’t allowing us to uniquely identify their individual contributions, strengths and professional goals. Once you join our team the titles kinda get dropped as we expect everyone to work with everyone regardless of title or experience. We have taken the approach of evaluating candidates and employees on a “level” basis. It makes it a little easier internally to talk about growing into the next level without there being this huge chasm between what it means to be a Junior Engineer vs. a Mid Engineer. Our levels have expectations set for each one and it’s the responsibility of the manager and employee to make sure there is alignment. We do this through quarterly conversations where we discuss employee progression, if the work is challenging, and to ensure they feel fairly compensated for their work and expertise. Basically, levels gives us more flexibility to help people grow in their careers. But sure, you can post your title on LinkedIn as what makes sense to the rest of the world.
