← Careers in Engineering at Movable Ink

Movable Ink powers meaningful experiences in email and on the web for the biggest brands in the world. They rightly expect our product to meet a very high standard of stability, performance, and an ever-improving set of features.

The Principal Front End Engineer will be a technical leader for a cross-product team of Engineers focused on front-end solutions. This will include: helping to bootstrap and set foundations for new initiatives; lead efforts to standardize best-practices in Javascript and CSS through training, pairing, and code reviews; create, manage and maintain infrastructure efforts across the product suite; and vet, contribute to, or create open source projects used in our stack.

Fast-forward one year. Here’s what you will have accomplished:

  • Identified and standardized similar, but conflicting patterns in our code base. (aka: You deleted a lot of code.)
  • Working with our design team, expanded and polished our shared UI library that looks great and is easy to use
  • Became a go-to resource for technical questions both because you have ways of quickly finding the answers and because you’re so darn nice about it.
  • Managed major changes in the codebase as a result of new and improved patterns in the Javascript ecosystem by both implementing and working with individual teams to incorporate into sprint work
  • Jumped into product team sprints for short bursts to help get a new project off the ground
  • Mentored developers newer to our frameworks and codebase


  • A meaningful set of experience working with Javascript and modern frameworks
  • Experience contributing to and maintaining open source projects (or frequently-updated shared projects within an organization)
  • A solid understanding of front-end build and development tools
  • Experience leading and/or mentoring other developers
