Front End Engineer

Candidates need to be located in the Portland, OR metro area. Unfortunately, we cannot support fully remote employees or relocation services at this time.

Hi there. We’re Bumped. A tech company on a mission to build meaningful, lasting relationships between customers and companies by turning loyal shoppers into shareholders. Along the way, we make the (traditional, sometimes stodgy) stock market more approachable, understandable, and—dare we say it—fun.

You can see the details about our culture in the section below, but to summarize: we’re building something great to help turn everyone into an owner, and partnering with brands that are passionate about relationships with their customers. After all, it's not about us. It's about customers and the brands they love, loving them back.

We’d like to add a Front End Engineer to our dynamic technology team. We're excited about what we are doing and are energized by our social mission, helping people while creating a new market dynamic and are looking for someone who is passionate about collaborating, solving problems, and all things design, code, and front-end related. If you are the kind of person that can take ownership of what you’re building and feel pride in your contribution, then Bumped may be the right fit for you.

The Role

This role will likely have a lot of responsibilities that revolve around taking our current product and helping finesse it into a well-oiled machine with a lot of polish. We're bringing a platform to life and giving it the work it needs to be something that really helps people and makes them feel delighted to use it.

  • Design, build, and maintain front-end features of the Bumped app and other internally/externally facing user interfaces
  • Work with our team to learn, create, and iterate.
  • Work with the Product and Design teams to ensure technical feasibility of UI/UX designs.
  • Optimize solutions for speed and scalability
  • Be able and willing to wear multiple metaphorical hats and contribute in whatever capacity is needed to ensure mutual success
  • Work constructively with others to discuss potential solutions, make a decision as a team, and move forward decisively and quickly. Be able to align with and support the team’s direction.

Experience & Skills

Humility is our #1 job requirement. We hope that candidates will bring the following competencies and expertise, not their ego. If you get the impression that you would be a great fit at Bumped, but don’t necessarily have experience with all skills below, that is okay, however, please be aware that we will not consider candidates without either signifcant on-the-job experience (at least one year) or a strong portfolio of projects (e.g. a portfolio or github profile with professional-quality work you're proud of) We are looking for someone who can find what they love and own it.

Core skill requirements:

  • Ability to collaborate and facilitate clear communication within your team and across the organization
  • Mid to high-level proficiency with JavaScript (vanilla, modern ECMAScript, React, or other JS frameworks), semantic HTML, and CSS
  • Experience with React (our ideal candidate already uses hooks in their components)
  • Demonstrated experience building interactive user interfaces (bonus for work with slick features you're extra proud of)
  • Broad knowledge of web standards, trends, and cross-browser compatibility

Advantageous skills include:

  • TypeScript or any strictly typed language
  • GraphQL and Relay
  • Passion to implement and advise on accessibility, performance, and usability
  • React Native (Bonus points for Expo)
  • Experience with unit and functional testing methodologies
  • Building reusable components and design systems

Working at Bumped

Here at Bumped, we believe in a culture of leadership. That means that all of our employees...

Own It: Leaders own results—whether things go right or wrong. We hold ourselves and each other accountable, we learn from our mistakes, we don’t point fingers.

Get the Big Picture: Always seek to understand what’s happening beneath the surface—from how we make company decisions to how your team prioritizes projects. Ask questions when you don’t understand directives or decisions. It’s much easier to believe in a mission when you fully understand it, as opposed to doing so simply because it was a directive.

Assess Your Alignment: Make sure everything you do—on an org, team, or project-level—is aligned with our overarching company goals and values. We must move in the same direction, or nothing will get done.

Be Advanced Humans: We value diversity, inclusivity, and humility. We’re working hard to do something big, and we never lose sight of ethics and respect for all.

Let’s build something great, together
