To take our platform to the next level and make Swing Education a world-class product, we’re looking for our first full-time Product Design Lead. You’ll own how we think about user experience and design, and will drive execution of that vision in future versions of our product (both web and mobile).

You’ll be responsible for designing the UX and UI for all customer flows and touch points across web and mobile. The ideal candidate will understand user behavior, tradeoffs of workflow and design decisions, detail-oriented, possess a great visual eye, and passionate about modern design principles.

Who we are

We help schools access more subs and offload tedious work associated with sub onboarding (recruiting, screening, payroll, etc.). And we help subs find jobs, gain experience and build their professional network.

This position reports to the VP of Product and is based in San Mateo, CA. Swing is a revenue generating, Series A, Y Combinator company (through ImagineK12).

ThemeIsle: FrontEnd Developer

Authentic Jobs - Full Stream -

Full-time

(Anywhere) DESCRIPTION

I bet you don’t want to end up being that person who always complains about their work when talking to friends and family, do you? Bet you’d much rather have something to brag about instead and do something that has real impact on the community and possibly on hundreds of thousands of people around the world. This is the kind of job we want you for!

Hi, we’re ThemeIsle and we’re looking for a skilled front-end developer to join our team.

We’ve been on the WordPress themes market for a couple of years now, and we’ve developed a number of successful themes during this time. For instance, our flagship creation – Zerif Lite – is used on 150,000 websites, and if we safely assume that each of those sites has 20+ visitors, that’s a reach of over three million people. Additionally, two of our free themes are in the top 20 most popular themes in the official WordPress directory.

If you feel that your skills can get us even further, read on.

The first thing we expect from a front-end developer is to be very result-oriented and have the dedication to get the job done. You’ll be given a lot of freedom, and you’ll have real impact on our biggest and best products.

But as you know … with great power comes great responsibility. Ideally, you should be ready to lead our front-end development across all of our WordPress themes and the rest of our projects. 

REQUIREMENTS

(Remote work from the other side of the globe is okay. But if you’re from Bucharest and willing to work with us at the office, that's bonus points for you.)

  • Extensive WordPress development skills/experience, an understanding of the platform, its abilities and limitations
  • Knowledge of JavaScript, jQuery, HTML5 and CSS3, SASS
  • Good sense of UI and UX design
  • Responsive Web development with Bootstrap 
  • Experience with Photoshop and Illustrator 
  • Ability to work with a team in an organized way
  • Genuine goal of helping people through the creations you’re building as a developer

Nice-to-have skills:

  • Angular, React experience 
  • Experience with Git
  • Experience with WordPress themes development

You don’t need to have years of experience, but you have to be willing to learn things quickly and not be afraid to experiment with technologies that are new to you.

BENEFITS

You’ll get to work with a young team of WordPress enthusiasts, programmers, designers, and even active bloggers and writers. WordPress themes don’t have to be boring(!) – that’s our primary motto – and we’re doing everything we can to prove it … starting from our site design (focused around pirates and rum), to our whole work attitude in general.

- Be part of a diverse team - we're 20 people spread across three continents 

- Flexible times - results are more important then the time you arrive at the office

- Super nice workspace (dual monitor environment, standing desk)

- Downtown office, in an easy to reach area (Piata Romana). Remote working is also an option.

- Yummy coffee 

- Private medical insurance 

- Attending yearly WordCamp Europe (the largest WordPress conference) with the rest of the team

- Fun activities and retreats
