About Motion:
Motion is growing fast (3x YoY), our product is sticky (120%+ Net Revenue Retention), and we recently raised $6M in seed funding. But we’re just getting started and we need your help.
We’re building a new category of software to bridge the gap between performance marketers and creative teams. Our creative analytics platform offers fast, visual reporting for Meta, TikTok, and YouTube ads to help creative teams understand what’s working and why.
Our team is still small, with 10 engineers and 35 company wide. After a successful 2023 we’re growing the early team to enable more product growth this year and beyond.
About you:
We are looking for a talented, driven, and experienced frontend engineer. In this role, you will play a crucial part in writing fronentd for customer facing features. As a company, we have a strong bias towards action and are looking for independent individuals with both technical and product savvy. You will use good judgment to make product choices and technical decisions from our customers’ perspective, we expect more than just shipping code.
The right candidate favours working on a cross-functional team, has opinions about good product experiences, and embraces a willingness to jump in and get the job done.
Motion is a fully remote company but we work closely as a team. We are looking for someone who has some overlap with both EST and CET, somewhere between UTC-5 and UTC+1.
Experience:
- 5+ years of experience as a front-end engineer, with experience building products people love and use every day.
- Strong grasp of front-end technologies, including React, TypeScript, GraphQL, and relevant frameworks/libraries within the Javascript ecosystem.
- Startup experience with a proven ability to thrive and lead in a fast-paced environment.
- Demonstrated ability to think beyond technical questions and understand the bigger picture of product development and customer value.
- Strong problem-solving skills and a pragmatic mindset that focuses on simple paths to delivering value.
- Some experience with full stack development, e.g. Node.js and MongoDB. A desire to just get things done on the backend, when the situation calls for it.
- Impatience for shipping product features to our users.
- Any past experience. Self-taught, bootcamp, degree, founder - we love talent from anywhere.
Week 1, you will:
- Onboard with our CS team to really get to grips with the product and our customers.
- Pair with a senior dev to get set up with our codebase and tooling.
- Push your first PR
- Have daily support from a member of the engineering team
In 30 days, you will:
- Be paired with an onboarding buddy to ramp up on our codebase, customers and workflows.
- Work closely with team members and get to know your colleagues across the company.
- Immediately start contributing smaller features and changes.
In 60 days, you will:
- Collaborate closely on cross-functional teams to build completely new features.
- Work independently on product solutions that get shipped to main.
- Actively contribute to the growth of the engineering organization by being vocal in meetings, setting the roadmap, contributing to the tech stack, etc.
In 90 days (and beyond), you will:
- Be an active contributor across the organization, not just on the engineering team.
- Continuously learn and tackle unique technical challenges within our evolving product.
- Advocate improvements to our development process.
- Come up with novel solutions to product challenges and customer problems.
- Contribute to making the engineering team better, in ways we haven’t thought of yet.
What you'll love about Motion:
- Fully remote team with incredible offsites and retreats to build camaraderie. Our last retreat was a week-long stay at Lake Muskoka.
- We've found product market fit but we're still so early that you will have a major impact on all the work left to do.
- The engineering team is small, eight devs, but established enough that we can ship serious features regularly.
- We’re a tech company so we have all the standard startup benefits: Great vacation policies, health care, modern tech, home office budget etc.
- Our team is ambitious, talented and low on egos
- A sense of urgency. We prioritize shipping quickly to users, pushing new features and iterations every two weeks. Moving fast is baked into the process.
We want Motion’s impact in the creative-tech industry to be up there with the Webflows, Canvas and Figmas of the world. We have a deep understanding of the problem space through many years of building in the industry. We know exactly what it’s going to take for Motion to win. We’d love for you to join us on the ride!
