Senior SEO Front End Engineer

| Santa Monica
We are a 150+ person team funded by top-tier firms, based in Santa Monica, CA with satellite offices in San Francisco. We are a low-key but tight-knit group of hard-working people working to fix America's broken healthcare system. Americans spend over $400 billion per year on prescriptions and too many people simply can't afford the medications they desperately need. Join GoodRx and help us solve meaningful problems that help us make people’s lives better every day.
About the Role 
You work where design meets code meets content meets SEO. You know HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript like the back of your hand. You understand caching all the way from the origin server to the browser cache, know the details of Content Distribution Networks intimately, have used the new features of HTTP/2 in production and are obsessed with metrics like "First Content Paint", "SpeedIndex", and "Time to Interactive". You are passionate about experimentation, innovation, and playing around with the latest front-end technologies. You write clean, compatible, powerful user interfaces with speed and you have a passion for understanding your audience and dreaming up ways to build great technological futures for them.
 
As our SEO front-end engineer, you’ll be part of our cross-function SEO team, including world-class designers, product managers, content writers and subject matter experts to turn new ideas into tangible user experiences used by millions of people each month using modern web technologies. Our frontend stack includes: React.js, NodeJS, Express, Webpack, Redux, AWS, and Fastly.
 
Responsibilities:
  • Collaborate with our cross functional SEO team and the broader team of Product Designers, Product Managers, and Engineers to deliver compelling user-facing products
  • Design and implement methods to improve our page speed metrics across the site
  • Architect efficient and reusable front-end systems that drive complex web applications
  •  Write clean, fast, compatible, easy-to-use, automated-testable React JSX to realize our ideas
  • Build our UI framework to help us create rich applications to interact with our data—code, widgets, and all—and help us identify and document its emergent rules
 
Skills & Qualifications: 
  • Hard skills—code: Fluent, and we mean fluent, HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. You know jQuery but know why it’s insufficient. Experience with and full knowledge of how to use React and Node to build a full web app—back and front. Encyclopedic knowledge of browser and device compatibility.
  • Hard skills—performance: You've personally identified and fixed performance issues that lead to improvements in speed metrics like "Time to First Paint", "SpeedIndex" and "Time to Interactive". You have experience with server side rendering and reverse proxy CDNs such as Fastly in a high volume, production environment. You are knowledgeable on Webpack bundle optimizations, modern compression algorithms such as Brotli or Zopfli and modern image compression like WebP and JPEG200. 
  • Experience: Minimum 3 years developing and shipping clean, efficient, and compatible web apps where SEO was critical, and executing with all the hard skills above
  • Portfolio: A portfolio of real projects—better yet if one or two are open source you can walk us through your work on GitHub
 
Good To Have: 
  • Familiarity building clickable prototypes with Keynote, Balsamiq, Adobe Fireworks, or a similar tool
  • Knowledge of how to build and use databases like MongoDB and MySQL and the ability to set up continuous integration, automated testing, and deployment with tools like Travis, Circle, Heroku, AppEngine, or similar

An Insider's view of GoodRx

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

GoodRx hires team members we can trust and empower. With thoughtful hiring, we have assembled a team that is inherently self-motivated, driven and doesn't require (or want) micromanagement.

Reena Scoblionko

Director of HR

What makes someone successful on your team?

Willingness to reach out and ask for help when needed, as well as a desire to offer new ideas and implement them when the opportunity arises.

Justin Kinney

Senior Proofreader

What are some things you learned at the company?

One of the best things about being at a legitimate hypergrowth, profitable company is learning how it breathes and thinks on a daily basis compared to most startups. You have seasoned management and a “radically candid” environment. At our size, you still touch all facets of the business before we grow to 500-1,000 employees in the next few years.
