At Forestry, we’re helping people build a better web. Our Software Engineer’s mission is to help build a CMS for the next era of the web. If you’re aligned with our mission, enjoy solving complex problems, and like shipping features with a cross-functional team, this could be the perfect role for you.

We are looking for an engineer who can have an impact across our stack -from our React front-end to our Rails back-end, with more emphasis on the front-end. In depth experience with both frameworks is not required, but the more experience with these or similar frameworks, the better.

We strive to create a workplace that enables mastery, autonomy, and purpose (from Daniel Pink’s work).

What You’ll Do
  • Design, build and maintain features for our CMS using efficient, reusable and reliable JavaScript/React and Ruby/Rails code
  • Identify bottlenecks and bugs, and suggest and implement solutions to these problems
  • Help maintain code quality, organization and automation
  • Work on a cross-functional team, providing input to and helping out in areas beyond coding (helping define requirements, testing, technical documentation)

To Be Successful In This Role, You’ll Need
  • A minimum of 2 years experience building and designing web applications
  • Experience developing with JavaScript and a front-end framework (React preferred)
  • Experience working on the back-end of a web application
  • To be driven by solving hard problems and taking ownership over development tasks
  • To take initiative and suggest solutions and improvements
  • A solid understanding and appreciation for automated tests
  • To be proficient in the English language, both written and verbal

Extra consideration will be given for candidates that:
  • Have experience across more of our technical stack (JavaScript/React, GraphQL, Ruby/Rails, Kubernetes, terraform, AWS)
  • Have experience with static site generators
  • Have a passion for the solving the needs of our users
