You’ll combine your expert knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript with your eye for stunning designs to produce unrivaled user experiences.
We are building extremely complicated single page applications which need to scale to millions of users. We pride ourselves with the patience to build the best solution and not the easiest. Our code is maintainable, expressive and elegant. We often ship several changes to our applications daily and test multiple versions simultaneously.
Because we are pushing the boundaries of what is possible with JavaScript/React in today’s devices, we are looking for more of the worlds most innovative JavaScript engineers.

  • Help to bridge the responsibilities of the Design and Engineering teams, spending time with both on the way to launching new products
  • Architect efficient and reusable front-end abstractions and systems that drive complex web applications

  • Experience in building large-scale web applications in a fast-moving team environment
  • A strong understanding of UX and UI design standards
  • The perfectionist’s touch on a pragmatist’s deadline: you strive for pixel-perfection and intuitive functionality

  • The ability to bring any design to life with HTML and CSS, with cross browser compatibility and accessibility
  • A comfort in using tools like Sketch or Photoshop to tweak and export assets from our Design team
  • Smarts, humility, communication skills, and equal willingness to teach and learn

Bonus Points

  • Demonstrated work beyond the front-end, experienced in integrating with a wide array of back-end technologies and services
  • You can straddle client and server development, creating APIs that drive web apps
  • Experience constructing data visualizations using libraries like D3.js
  • You nerd out making things animate with SVG, Paper.js, Three.js, Canvas, or WebGL
  • Experience with Stripe or processing credit cards
  • You understand the intricacies of timezones
  • Web optimization, performance tools, and load testing
  • You maintain or contribute to an open source project

An Insider's view of Boulevard

What are some social events your company does?

This year's programming is geared toward wellness. A meditation instructor comes in once a month for Wellness Wednesdays to provide balance and clarity in the workplace. We also host group workouts like boxing and cycling at local studios. It’s not all health & fitness though we still indulge in a Happy Hour once a month.

Valerie

Office Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We are working on "platformizing" our product. Our goal is to make Boulevard customizable and extendable to fit all types of appointment-based businesses. We want to open doors for new partner integrations all the while keeping the core of the system unbiased to the type of business using it.

Jared

Director of Engineering

What makes someone successful on your team?

I look for Product Marketers that are intellectually curious, critical thinkers who hold strong opinions loosely. We have to challenge each other as a team, but also be open to learning new perspectives to shape the most effective go-to-market releases.

Priya

Director of Product Marketing

What makes someone successful on your team?

Successful employees are true customer advocates. They must easily adapt to change and persevere through the many seasons of the customer journey without sacrificing the customer experience. Customer success is our success.
