About the team


Evernote's note editor team is looking for a Senior JavaScript Engineer to help us improve our rich text editing experience. By shipping code on our team, your work will be used by millions of people around the world, of all languages and professions.


Our team ships the editor as part of the Evernote app on each major operating system (iOS, Android, Windows, MacOS) and on all major Web browsers. We utilize a wide range of modern web technologies and frameworks, some of which you may already be familiar with and others which will likely be new to you. If you love learning new technologies and working through unique technical challenges, our team can give you plenty of opportunities to explore.


The Evernote editor helps people create and update over 25 million notes on an average day. People use Evernote to store all kinds of information and it's our team's responsibility to make sure that experience is as robust and reliable as possible. As a part of this team, you will be expected to work closely with designers in order to make trade-offs in terms of user experience, business goals, and technical complexity.


Our team values autonomy, responsibility, and collaborative ingenuity in order to maximize the impact of each person. Many of our team members are located in Texas (Austin) and California (Redwood City and San Diego) but we also work closely with remote team members in other parts of the U.S. and Chile. If you're interested in working on a high-impact front-end web team, we would love to meet you!


What you'll do

  • Improve Evernote offerings by writing code in JavaScript (and TypeScript) and other front-end web technologies
  • Build features, write tests, and support changes across multiple platforms (i.e. web browsers and web views inside desktop/mobile apps)
  • Develop high-quality software using an agile style development process
  • Collaborate with other teams and functions (e.g. Design, QA, Product, etc.) to build robust, polished applications that satisfy real-word user needs


What you've done

  • Developed web applications for 5+ years
  • Built rich browser apps with HTML, JavaScript, CSS
  • Investigated advanced use cases and implementation details of frameworks/tools you use
  • Learned new technologies and shared that knowledge with teammates
  • Engaged in continuous integration, agile development, and work planning/estimation practices
  • Worked in cross-functional teams with developers, QA, designers, and product management


Bonus points for…

  • Familiarity with rich text editing in a browser (contenteditable) and related frameworks
  • Experience developing, adapting, and deploying libraries with WebAssembly
  • Deep understanding of low-level browser APIs and implementation details
  • Broad experience single-page web application architecture and frameworks like React
  • Knowledge of more than one programming language
  • Experience with server-side programming or desktop/mobile application development
  • Complementary knowledge in other areas (e.g. user experience, test automation, accessibility, etc.)


We are committed to an inclusive and diverse Evernote. We believe that different perspectives lead to better ideas, and better ideas allow us to better understand the needs and interests of our diverse, global Evernote Community. We welcome people of different backgrounds, experiences, abilities and perspectives and are an equal opportunity employer.
