Senior Front End Developer – Marketing Site

The web engineering team is responsible for the development and maintenance of all of Fastly’s public facing web properties. This includes some of our biggest, most impactful efforts like Fastly.com, developer.fastly.com, docs.fastly.com, and Fastly Labs. We are a fully distributed team looking for applicants who get excited about the prospect of building well crafted, highly available, performant, and responsive web experiences.

What You’ll Do

  • Long-term maintenance of web sites
  • Adding new features to web sites
  • Develop new features from whiteboard through to production
  • Contribute ideas for iterative improvements to both code and culture

What We’re Looking For

  • Strong CS fundamentals and extensive experience developing robust user experiences using React, JavaScript, CSS, and HTML
  • Experience coaching and mentoring teammates
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • A keen eye for good design and copywriting
  • Experience with automated testing of JavaScript applications
  • Solid understanding of Git (and GitHub)
  • Understand the HTTP request/response cycle

We value a variety of voices, so this is not a laundry list. It would be an added bonus if you have experience in ANY of these:

  • Experience working with distributed development teams
  • Experience with static site generators and headless CMS systems (we use Gatsby, Jekyll, and Contentful)
  • Experience with developing & maintaining design systems
  • Experience with Sketch or Figma
  • Experience with multilingual sites
  • Familiarity with Varnish (VCL)
  • Experience with Ruby

Why Fastly?

  • We have a huge impact. Fastly is a small company with a big reach. Not only do our customers have a tremendous user base, but we also support a growing number of open source projects and initiatives. Outside of code, employees are encouraged to share causes close to their heart with others so we can help lend a supportive hand.
  • We love distributed teams. Fastly’s home-base is in San Francisco, but we have multiple offices and employees sprinkled around the globe. In fact, 50% of our employees work outside of SF! An international remote culture is in our DNA.
  • We care about you. Fastly works hard to create a positive environment for our employees, and we think your life outside of work is important too. We support our teams with great benefits like up to 20 weeks of paid parental leave, options for free medical/dental/vision plans, and an open vacation program that enables our folks to take the time they need to recharge (some benefits may vary by location).
  • We value diversity. Growing and maintaining our inclusive and diverse team matters to us. We are committed to being a company where our employees feel comfortable bringing their authentic selves to work and have the ability to be successful — every day.
  • We are passionate. Fastly is chock full of passionate people and we’re not one size fits all’. Fastly employs authors, pilots, skiers, parents (of humans and animals), makeup geeks, coffee connoisseurs, and more. We love employees for who they are and what they are passionate about.

We’re always looking for humble, sharp, and creative folks to join the Fastly team. If you think you might be a fit, please apply!
