Web Developer

Meteor Development Group, San Francisco

The open source company for JavaScript and GraphQL

Our goal at Apollo is to make professional application development teams faster and more productive. We reach an audience of hundreds of thousands of web developers, and Apollo tools are used in production by some of today's most serious companies, including Airbnb, IBM, New York Times, KLM, and more. All of these people discover and learn about our tools and products through our web presence.

In this role, you'll work with designers, marketing professionals, product managers, and content writers at Apollo to develop marketing sites and interactive web experiences that form a large part of our company's public-facing communications. This includes our main website at www.apollographql.com, websites for events like our GraphQL Summit conference and Apollo Day, Apollo documentation and tutorials, and any other properties we'll need for the future. Many thousands of developers will be looking at your work every day, and the sites you develop will be the front door to everything that we're doing.

What you'll do

  • Develop our public facing websites based on mockups from a visual designer.
  • Work with people across the whole company to update web content quickly as needed.
  • Implement interactive website features like forms, spam-prevention CAPTCHAs, visualizations, animations, and navigation components.
  • Manage the tooling we use for building and deploying websites based on your needs, which might include a component library, CSS framework, static site generator, and deployment tools.
  • Ensure that our web properties are reliable and performant using common web performance tools such as Lighthouse.
  • Ensure that our web properties look great on all devices, and have the appropriate metadata for Google and common social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
  • Instrument our content with web analytics tools such as Google Analytics.
  • Expand your knowledge over time by gaining experience with JavaScript, React, and advanced web development frameworks.

About you

  • You care about the details, and love producing a polished result that you can be proud of.
  • You have a firm grasp of HTML and CSS, and enough JavaScript knowledge to implement some interactive features.
  • You're proactive about gathering requirements, content, and feedback from project stakeholders to ensure everyone is bought into the final result.
  • You have an eye for design, and feel comfortable making some design decisions on the fly during the implementation of a site.
  • You're excited about finding and learning better tools to make your work more efficient over time.
  • You have done web development in the past, and have some examples of your work.
Please include a link to an online portfolio or some examples of your work in your application, if you have any.

This position is located in our San Francisco headquarters. MDG is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a talented and diverse workforce.
