In total, over 5 million people have been welcomed into a Peerspace location, and we're looking for people who want to help us reach the next 50 million.

The Role:

Peerspace is hiring a Software Engineer focused on the front-end stack (React, Redux, NPM, Node, NGINX) to join our team.

●   Work with modern front-end technologies like Redux, React, and Next.js.
●   Collaborate with the backend team as they define APIs and other services that support client applications.

●   Prior experience (1+ years) in a front-end focused role using a modern Javascript framework.
●   Experience with web caching strategies and use of CDN.
●   You thrive in an open and collaborative environment.
●   You like to share - you write code that is modular and extensible whenever possible and leave code better than you found it.
●   You love to ship - you can talk through examples of projects that you had end to end responsibility for.
●   You want to go home every day knowing your work is valued and will materially impact the experience of Peerspace hosts and guests worldwide.

About Peerspace

Peerspace mission Peerspace is an online marketplace that connects professionals and businesses to great spaces. Our goal since launching in 2014 has been to make finding and booking short-term space an easy and transparent process. We believe that innovation occurs at the intersection of smart people and the spaces that inspire them.

Whenever space is needed away from the home or office, it can happen with Peerspace.
