Front End Software Engineer

San Francisco Bay Area

Full-time

We're currently on the lookout for talented software engineers to join us in our (fast growing) studio in SOMA, San Francisco.

So if think you’ve got what it takes to build digital products and services that break new ground for some of the biggest brands on the planet, we can’t wait to hear from you.

About the role

At Potato, best in class software development and human-centred design are at the heart of everything we do. We’re a talented bunch of problem solvers who are committed to finding a better way; delivering smarter products that provide more satisfying experiences and more valuable outcomes for our clients and their users. Our clients include Google, Mozilla and the BBC.

There are plenty of technical acronyms or different frontend frameworks, but fundamentally we're looking for intelligent people who have an eagerness to learn new things, and the communication skills to be able to explain them to humans such as project managers and our clients.

As part of one of our friendly, supportive, proactive Agile product teams, you’ll play a vital role in helping us build excellent simple, reliable, maintainable software, meeting user and stakeholder needs and timelines (no pressure). We want to put you and your team in a position to write and deploy the best code that you can.
