Team Lead, Front End Development

Dotdash - New York, NY

About Your Role:

Dotdash is looking for a Team Lead focused on front-end development with a demonstrated track record of mentorship, innovative thinking, and technical excellence. You will work in a collaborative Agile environment to support and expand the website of one of our flagship brands.

As the technology leader on your scrum team, you will be responsible for helping to set technical direction, realizing your ideas in code, and collaborating with other groups within the organization.

About Your Contributions:

  • Manage and mentor front-end developers on your team, to grow their skills and prepare them for increased responsibility.
  • Prototype and develop responsive and elegant cross-platform functionality on a custom server-side component framework, built on Java but leveraging SCSS, Freemarker templates, and ES6 on the front-end, with VueJS increasingly used for more interactive components
  • Contribute to / maintain Dotdash’s commitment to highly performant sites
  • Research new technologies to solve problems and improve existing systems.
  • Lead discussions about project architecture and technical feasibility, make decisions, and justify your development approach.
  • Work in close collaboration with the business and product stakeholders to launch new features while maintaining engineering standards.
  • Organize, track and lead the paying down of technical debt

About You:

  • 4+ years in a front-end or full stack web development position. The ideal candidate will have spent at least one year mentoring or leading junior engineers
  • High levels of skill with HTML, CSS, and vanilla Javascript; significant experience with one or more other languages.
  • Significant experience with at least one server-side templating language - think JSP, Twig, Handlebars or the PHP templating in WordPress. Alternatively, experience working with a component-based web framework, particularly one with a server-side templating aspect (e.g., Vue+Nuxt).
  • Experience and knowledge of web performance standards and Google’s Core Web Vitals
  • The ability to translate technical concepts into business-friendly requirements – and vice versa.
  • Comfortable using the tools of modern collaborative Agile+Scrum SDLC, including Git, Jira, etc
  • Interested in expanding your history of mentorship and guidance into a leadership role.
