Our Systems Development team is looking for an exceptional Front End Developer to be part of one of our implementation teams. Their main objective will be to create functional and ascetically beautifully prototypes from concepts and ideas.

Since all work and no play make a dull office, we’re thoroughly committed to infusing our days with surprises, brain-stimulating activities and, when appropriate, costumes. As a team member at Warby Parker you can look forward to company outings, guest speakers, and all sorts of other fun perks.

What you'll do:

  • Build proof of concepts and functional prototypes
  • Provide real-time validations on the technical feasibility of designs
  • Contribute to our web stack—from static HTML and CSS to heavy JS interoperating with the PHP and Python backends
  • Create and maintain reusable JS/CSS libraries and components for reuse throughout our site

Who you are:

  • Comfortable taking ownership of your work with little coaching
  • A team player with stellar communication skills
  • Known for having a solid eye for detail and a great taste for aesthetics
  • Possess strong, well-formed opinions about what makes for a good user experience
