Full time
Help us make personal digital security understandable and accessible at Tall Poppy! Tall Poppy builds tools and services to help companies protect their employees against online harassment and abuse. We combine proactive security training, threat monitoring, and detection with incident response when an individual comes under attack. In addition to our standard service, we offer additional capabilities for high-profile or executive staff who face increased risk. About the role We are looking for a full stack, frontend focused web developer who will work with us in our San Francisco office. We're flexible about occasionally working from home, but we're a very small team and value the high bandwidth of in person collaboration. The successful candidate in this job is someone ready to take on the large responsibility of helping us grow not only our existing web app, but the overall user experience of protecting people from harassment online. Our current stack is Ruby on Rails with a multi-page application React frontend. We use Rails gems such as devise and administrate. We use Javascript packages such as styled-components and d3. What you'll day to day: Work closely with product and design to help define what is doable and when. Own what you build as you architect, test, and iterate on core pieces of functionality. Contribute to a web application that promotes self-care and compassion. Have opinions on code design and advocate for them appropriately. We hope you: Have several years of professional technical experience Are passionate about supporting people through traumatizing experiences Get excited about writing sophisticated frontends with React, CSS, HTML Have experience with backend frameworks (we use Rails, but Rails experience isn't required) Appreciate test-driven development practices Can write clear, maintainable code Have a degree in Computer Science, or equivalent work experience Are familiar with the basics of personal digital security, i.e. know how password managers work, understand what 2-factor authentication is and how/why to use it, are generally aware of security topics from an end-user point of view. Bonus points (definitely not required): Social work, trauma, or psychology knowledge or experience Crisis or incident response experience We highly encourage you to apply, even if you don't think you fit 100% of the criteria. We will help with relocation, if required.
