Our goal is to listen, engage, and activate voices across Red Ventures to ensure that all identity groups and perspectives are represented in our work. Our aspiration is to have diverse teams at every level of the company, and we seek candidates who bring unique personal experiences, curiosity and an eagerness to embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion.

At a Glance

Bankrate.com, a division of Red Ventures, is looking for a talented, results-oriented, innovative Front End Software Engineer to join the team! This individual will play a major role in developing the applications which provide the backbone for the Bankrate.com brand. This person will have strong experience developing cloud native solutions and have excellent problem-solving skills. This person will interact with developers and business partners at all levels and with teams across a geographically diverse company. This individual will be responsible for promoting a collaborative and communicative culture.

The team you’ll be working with is a supportive and fast-moving team that builds the key software for the brand. We create software that is sustainable in the long-term, which requires each of us to be committed to the company’s goals and values. This is an opportunity to have significant input into the technical direction and architecture of our content platform.

What You'll Do

  • Design, implement, and test software to support Bankrate authenticated experiences.
  • Collaborate closely with business and design teams to scope and deliver valuable projects on time.
  • Teach and learn new skills with your fellow developers, producing quality code with consistent standards.
  • Continually look for opportunities to build value in the codebase: set standards, build tools, and automate jobs to make yourself and your team better and faster.
  • Demonstrate a sharp eye for detail. Debug issues and execute so everything “just works.”

What We're Looking For

  • 3+ years of experience in front end web development
  • Strong HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript fundamentals: you should be comfortable working with the command line and git, you should be capable of building things with HTML, CSS, and JS.
  • We don’t need you to be a designer, but we want someone who can partner closely with our talented design team. Experience with InVision and Figma is helpful.
  • Working knowledge of the way front-end systems run in the cloud and download to the browser. Can you diagnose a caching problem with a CDN, and do you know how to fix it

Even Better

  • Experience with page speed optimization. Working knowledge of web image formats, font loading techniques, and strategies for optimizing Core Web Vitals.
  • Experience implementing Web Accessibility Standards.
  • Experience building websites with React or Vue. 
  • Ability to wrangle build systems. Webpack? Parcel? Gulp? Do you know the difference between “npm i” and “npm ci,” and when they should be used? Can you compile CSS from SASS while adjusting for certain browser compatibility?
  • Experience writing high quality documentation
