Web Developer (Browser Development)

| Venice
System1 is hiring a Web Developer to join our team. This is a diverse role that will involve “hacking” on the Mozilla platform, mostly on the backend. You will work with experts who know the Mozilla platform inside-out, while being a key contributor to novel open-source products which already have a passionate and growing user base.
Key goals for this role: Keep a “classic” version of the browser up-to-date with security patches; update components where possible and create better compatibility with legacy add-ons for the newer version of the platform that supports them. Build system work is required for this role sometimes, but that’s one of the fun parts!
 

The Role You Will Have

  • Write code and tests, build prototypes, tackle problems, profile and analyze bottlenecks
  • Learn about a wide variety of problems and solutions across a large, mature codebase (ex: how can we improve on the UX, make transitioning from other browsers easier, support legacy add-ons better?)
  • Familiarity with several programming languages (e.g., JavaScript, C++, Python)
  • Work with driven, committed team members to help bring the most customizable web browser to a larger audience. 

What You Will Bring

  • BS/MS in CS, CE or 3+ years relevant work experience
  • You are comfortable reading JavaScript and C++ (and comfortable writing in at least one of these)
  • Care deeply about making the browser fast and customizable (it takes trial and error to make things work on this code base, patience is ideal)
  • Strong debugging skills
  • Experience working with version control systems (especially git). 
  • Bonus Points if You Have
  • Exposure to the internals of the Mozilla platform (SpiderMoney engine), or curiosity and drive to learn from experts on the team.
  •  Interest in privacy and privacy-aware technologies.

What We Have To Offer

  • Free Uber/Lyft to and from work every day!
  • Collegial and collaborative team with highly intelligent and motivated coworkers
  • Cross-team lunches and demos to foster learning
  • Unlimited Paid Sick Time, Competitive PTO and Benefits package
  • Daily catered meals and fully stocked kitchen
  • Bi-weekly happy hour at various bars, restaurants, and venues across Los Angeles
  • Bi-weekly onsite happy hour
  • Catered dinner on Tuesdays and Thursdays
  • Weekly fitness class with private trainer: high intensity training, yoga, beach volleyball, beach soccer, ultimate frisbee
  • Company parties and outings: Skyzone indoor skydiving, Medieval Times, Karaoke, etc.

An Insider's view of System1

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

Of all the companies I have worked, System1 has the best work-life balance. There’s a minimum number of last-minute requests and you get to work on projects on a consistent pace. I work on my own schedule and have control of my time after work. I do get pinged occasionally after work for emergencies but that’s part of being a software engineer!

Software Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

I definitely never have the same day twice! I truly look forward to going to work and a big part of that is the variety of projects I get to work on and people I get to work with. While I love digging in on the latest anomaly in the data, I’m also a people person, and this role is really the perfect balance of screen time and face-to-face time.

Account Analyst

How does the company support your career growth?

Since joining System1, I've grown in both my technical abilities as well as my interpersonal abilities. I've been given the opportunity to steer a complex migration that spans across teams and then provided with the freedom to pursue solutions that have a real impact on the daily operations of our engineering team.
