The Role

As a senior engineer, you will be tasked with building a robust, maintainable web experience for the 1M+ campers using our website every month. We are currently in the process of expanding our campground booking system by building inventory management tools for campground owners and integrating with third-party campground listing providers. Our portfolio of campgrounds is set to increase significantly from this work, so this position is a good opportunity for engineers who want to grow their skills in site performance and scalability.

The current frontend is built with Next.js. Work varies from building highly interactive tools, like our search page and Trip Planner, to focusing on static rendering and page performance on our campground listings.

  • Are ready to learn and share knowledge — Everyone comes to our company with their own set of skills and experiences. Cross-training, code review, mentorship, and curiosity all help us build better products.
  • Play to win — We want to bring on team members who have a winning attitude and a willingness to think outside the box to get things done.

  • Proactively research best practices for modern JavaScript and for the frameworks and tools used on the job
  • Can identify and resolve performance concerns and look for opportunities to reduce technical debt
  • Can weigh multiple solutions for a problem against business needs and time constraints in order to meet company goals
