Oportun via Stack Overflow

San Carlos, CA

Jul 25th 2018


We are continuing to grow our Front-end Engineering talent.  We're looking not only for a proven engineer, but for a great team member--someone who is comfortable working with our product, platform, and design teams to bring the next step in our company vision to life.

In our team, we put a high degree of trust in our leaders to deliver against the commitments we make to each other and to our business partners. Therefore, you'll need to demonstrate a high degree of accountability, the ability to spot a problem + own it to resolution and the ability to inspire others to cross the finish line strong.


  • Desire for quick-iteration--working closely with design and product teams to make incremental and impactful enhancements to the frontend
  • Flexibility to work on multiple projects at once
  • Experience with responsive web design (knowing what media queries are, for example, and when to use them)
  • A passion for quality design, and pixel-perfect implementation.
  • Ability to influence, guide, and reinforce the adoption of design and coding standards across engineers.
  • Ability to work with and mentor junior developers
  • Comfort in delegating and distributing work to junior developers
  • An understanding of what it takes to write testable and maintainable code
  • Comfortable using the Atlassian tools to track your tasks and code (JIRA/Bitbucket)


  • MS or BS in Computer Science or equivalent
  • 7+ years (or more) experience shipping quality code
  • 3 year's experience with leading frontend frameworks like AngularJS and Angular 1.5/2
  • Experience contributing front-end code to a publicly available, consumer-focused web application.
  • Solid experience and understanding of HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript (vanilla js and popular libraries like Underscore.js and jQuery)
  • Experience with REST-based APIs


The team makes use of the best tools and frameworks to deliver an exceptional experience to our retail agents.  We primarily work in Javascript frameworks, making heavy use of AngularJS/SASS/Grunt and Node.  Most of the team uses Sublime Text and Textmate in OSX, but we won't judge you if you prefer Vim or VS Code.  We trust you to choose the right tools for the job.
