Job Description

Front-End Engineer—pretty straight forward, don’t you think?

Not exactly. Firespring looks for something different in the engineers we hire. As our newest Front-End Engineer, you will be working with our SBF team. Not abbreviated, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a nonprofit aimed at raising funds to help find cures for childhood cancer. That’s right, we have whole team dedicated to this awesome organization. And you will be a part of it. Pretty cool, right?

In addition to producing some stellar code, our engineers work in a dynamic environment. Our average day is spent coding, problem solving, strategically thinking, and exceeding the expectations of our client. In our opinion, that’s the perfect workplace.
