About the position
Wirecutter is seeking experienced Software Engineers to help build features that improve on the ways our millions of readers make informed buying decisions. As a Software Engineer on the Reader Experience team, you will sit in a cross-functional group that includes other engineers, product management, design, project management and editorial. Our mission is to be the most trusted and helpful recommendation service, and you will use your knowledge and skills alongside your team members to help us get there.
Specifically, the Reader Experience team’s focus lies in creating a beautiful and performant experience for mobile and desktop readers of Wirecutter, as well as developing and evangelizing a design system used by Wirecutter development teams. In this role, you’ll utilize your perspective and experience in UI/UX, design systems, and modern front-end technologies to help our design and product teams envision the best solutions for our business and readers. A great candidate is equally interested in details, like the proper margins around a byline, and big picture initiatives such as refactoring the grid layout of an entire page. You can find ways to be inquisitive, helpful, and move the team forward through those varying levels of problem solving.
We have a respectful and inclusive culture that values learning, creative problem solving, supportive teamwork, and shipping value. We flex where we need to flex and solve problems the best way we can with the information we have available. We support each other and celebrate successes together.
Wirecutter is powered by a modern web stack consisting of a variety of languages and frameworks including:
On the front end: SCSS, React, NextJS, Storybook.js, Node.js, Apollo GraphQL
And on the backend: Headless WordPress PHP, SQL, Laravel PHP
We are looking for engineers with a few years’ experience solving these types of problems, but time is not necessarily a measure of leveling, and we will work to level candidates to Wirecutter’s career levels during the hiring process.

In this role, you will:
Collaboratively tackle challenging green-field problems as part of a cross-functional team.
Work closely with Product and Design functions to ideate and plan technical approaches to new features.
Work across the different phases of the software development lifecycle including estimating level-of-effort, identifying the best approach, building, performing QA testing, deploying, documenting, debugging, and supporting features.
Participate and contribute to stand-ups, sprint planning, and retrospectives at the agile team level and up.
Perform code reviews with helpful and meaningful feedback for your teammates.
Mentor and grow peers in new technologies and methodologies.
Research, document, note trade-offs and recommend potential solutions around future product features.
Work collaboratively across the engineering department to ensure standard methodologies and processes are followed.
Lead by example.
You think critically, provide helpful feedback to your co-workers, collaborate well with others, tackle problems that achieve business goals, and are biased towards action. You own and learn from errors and mistakes, and work to help others not make the same mistake themselves. You are self-aware, can clearly communicate complex ideas in writing or in person, and have a genuine interest in learning and growing.
You should have a good mix of:
A team-first mentality and a desire to work with and learn from other disciplines.
Empathy for our readers and desire to improve their experiences.
Experience building complex, user-facing features from ideation to maintenance.
A strong perspective on software principles, scaling, performance, and quality.
Practiced and refined communication skills that allow you to convey complex ideas in writing or in person.
The ability to debug and communicate around complex issues.
Ability to use your technical skills to achieve business goals.
Analytical and creative problem-solving skills.
