Software Engineering  

San Francisco, California

Zoosk has always been interested in pursuing cutting-edge technologies and these days we are looking for a Sr. Software Engineer - JavaScript guru for Web to join our team.  

Zoosk’s Web applications for desktop, and separately for phone/tablet are Single Page Applications written on top of Google Closure (the JavaScript library behind Google Docs, Maps, GMail) and AngularJS. And now we’re looking for someone sharp, smart, passionate, and team player to help us maintain and expand our applications further.

Zoosk’s headquarters are conveniently located in downtown San Francisco near Powell’s BART station. We have a dog-friendly, open office with high ceilings, a kitchen with plenty of snacks, and a variety of perks that support developers so they can focus on their work and enjoy their environment.

About You:

  • You have 5+ years of related experience in front-end development with JavaScript, some experience with Angular.js. 
  • Bachelor's in Computer Science, or equivalent required. Master's preferred.
  • You know JavaScript very well which includes knowing the difference between “undefined” and “null” and not being surprised that “typeof []” returns “object”.
  • You can also explain the concepts of hoisting and closure to someone who just knows GW-Basic.
  • You are very comfortable working with AngularJS and can explain why usually digest runs at least twice to detect a change.
  • You have a very good grasp of Computer Science fundamentals—you know what a Collision in Hashmap is, what the Builder pattern in OO is, and you can write a Ternary search function by yourself without searching it in Stack Overflow. 
  • You have worked with Google Closure, CSS3/Sass, or PHP before.
  • You have worked on Single Page Applications before.
  • You have contributed to Open Source projects and have a showcase in your Github account.
  • You have experience working in a startup, on small teams, and doing fast-paced development. We utilize continuous deployment here at Zoosk.
  • You have created an account (just for test, at least) at zoosk.com and can name and describe at least five of the 200+ REST endpoints in our server-side that our SPA calls through out an authenticated session.
