Sittercity’s mission is to make child care finally work. We pioneered tech enabled child care in 2001, and we connect millions of parents with babysitters and nannies every year. Recognized as a Chicago Innovation Award winner and one of the best places to work by Crain’s and Built in Chicago, we are building a platform that is radically simplifying the way we find, book and pay for trusted care. Headquartered in Chicago, we serve families and caregivers nationwide. We're also incredibly excited to have joined the Bright Horizons family. Child care is essential for letting parents get back to work and keeping our economy functioning. Sittercity and Bright Horizons are coming together to strengthen our mission to make child care finally work!
What You’ll Do
As a Front End Developer at Sittercity, you’ll join a squad of teammates drawn from a variety of disciplines, working to solve real problems for thousands of users. You’ll have direct input into product decisions, and help ensure that your team’s work helps parents and caregivers connect efficiently and safely. Our stack is in transition, with both an older Rails monolith and a newer client web app that uses Vue and GraphQL. You’ll have the chance to help plot a course from where we are to where we want to be. You’ll work with teammates to execute feature code, refactor existing functionality, write unit and integration tests, and strengthen our platform. We value diversity of opinion, openness to feedback, and continuous learning. We strive to produce quality software, and you’ll join us in our ongoing quest to improve our tools and skills.
Why you should join us
We offer an innovative and fun environment that rewards passionate and curious individuals. Due to COVID-19, this will start as a remote role with the potential to eventually rejoin our team in our Chicago office. Our recently renovated office provides a bright and energized space for collaboration as well as many quiet areas for concentration.
