Front End/UX Developer
Posted: May 22, 2019
Founded in 2005, today over 300,000 websites have used Crazy Egg to understand how their audience experiences their website and their product. We are pioneers in data visualization, in conversion rate optimization, and in helping small and medium businesses get immense value quickly and accurately from incredibly large data sets. That's what we love to do. We are looking for a Front-End/UX Developer to help build on that foundation and improve the user experience of our products.
You will be joining a small, but passionate Crazy Egg team as a Front-End/UX Developer and assist us in building smooth, beautiful and pixel-perfect user experiences.
Here's what that looks like at Crazy Egg, and here are the values you’d be excited to stand behind:
As a team we strive for:
- Direct, undeniable, customer impact. We have incredible customers that we're grateful for and we believe the best teammates are the ones who, regardless of function or discipline, are eager and excited to find a way to connect their work directly to customers.
- Trusted independence with interdependence. You are fully trusted as a full owner of the work you do; self-determined, responsible, accountable, and celebrated. With that freedom, you acknowledge, a broader social context. We work together, we partner, we collaborate, and we make sure the work we take on and hand off is done thoughtfully and with care.
- Assume positive intent. All outcomes may not be what we desire, what we expected, or what we needed. But they happened because people take chances and are willing to make decisions. We assume people try their hardest and try their best, we assume their actions started with the most positive of intentions. Every conversation, assessment, piece of feedback, starts with that assumption, on both sides. This ensures our team is built on a foundation of trust.
- Care and inclusion; sincerely. We work at Crazy Egg because we believe in the opportunity, we believe in the vision, we believe in our people, and we believe in our ability to build something wonderful. It is those beliefs that also mean we care about the market, we care about the vision, we care about each other, and we care about building something wonderful. When all of this falls into place, our customers are able to build better businesses and succeed.
As a developer what we hope you strive for:

- Assist in the research, design and implementation of pixel-perfect user experiences.
- Have the ability to work on the front-end for multiple different application stacks, including based on HTTP/REST APIs and GraphQL.

- Mentoring and helping others grow and make an impact.

- Understanding of best practices for web development, design, and devops principles.
