Engineering Team Lead - Frontend

Squarespace, New York, NY

Help the world share their story


Squarespace is seeking experienced frontend technology leaders to grow our products and the teams that build them. We’re looking for engineers who are hands on - both in terms of writing JavaScript and contributing to user experience discussions, but who also want to spend a part (<50%) of their time managing and mentoring more junior engineers on the team.

The Frontend team at Squarespace is responsible for building one the most advanced interfaces on the web. With it, our customers are able to easily create beautiful interactive websites and stores. If you are a Frontend Engineer who strives to push the envelope with what is possible in a web browser, and to rally other engineers around that vision, we want to hear from you! As a frontend team lead, you’d be setting the direction for a team of 3-5 other frontend engineers, and owning a key part of the product. That could be a vertical responsibility for a feature or area of the product, or a horizontal responsibility for a specialty like performance, internationalization, or accessibility. This role will report to the Product Engineering Manager in our New York City headquarters.

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Design and build new features into the Squarespace interface
  • Lead other engineers and collaborate with designers to deliver strong customer-focused experiences
  • Have regular 1-1 with team members, and take an active role in code reviews for junior members
  • Keep our product up to date with the latest frontend technologies such as React and ES2015+
  • Practice disciplined software engineering (e.g. automated testing, code reviews, and writing beautiful, pragmatic code)
  • Actively contribute to team and company standards
  • Mentor junior team members

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Strong JavaScript development skills, understanding of new ES6 concepts, and proficiency in React, Angular, or other modern JS frameworks
  • Experience managing a team of 3-5 engineers
  • Extensive experience developing large-scale application software
  • Have full knowledge of the DOM, new HTML5 constructs, and CSS3
  • Have experience with Single Page Application development
  • Keep up to date with the newest technologies
  • Develop features and create fulfilling user experiences
  • A strong understanding of, and practical experience with, web application development
  • A sincere commitment to crafting readable and reliable code
