If you’re a Software Engineer who loves leaning into the creativity of frontend, then I reckon I might have just the thing for you! The Magnet squad at 99designs by Vista are looking for the next Mid Level Engineer to join them. They’re all about (…you guessed it) magnetism – how can we pull people into the 99d platform to find & create great designs. Think: all things front of funnel, there’s elements of growth, branding, and designer marketing. This would be a great gig for a frontend engineer & aspiring (but not quite yet) fullstack-er, the team would love to help you grow.
99designs by Vista is the world’s global creative platform that makes it easy for clients and designers to work together to create designs they love. Since 2008, their freelance community has brought more than one million creative projects to life for thousands of genius entrepreneurs, savvy small business owners, and brands with big ideas. As part of the Vista family, which includes VistaPrint and VistaCreate, 99designs helps small businesses thrive with expert design at their fingertips.
Why join now? You’d be joining a high calibre and mature product tech business that’s small enough for you to have real impact.
Working in the Exploration group you will truly go forth and explore! This team owns all of the product discovery and recommendation experience of 99d, where folks have their first interactions with the 99d platform: which should be both delightful and practical for users. They focus on capabilities to search and discover products and designers — it’s all about gathering the right kind of data to, in turn, show people the right things (and at the right time).
Working in the Magnet team your focus is all about pulling people into the platform, by improving the channels of understanding and finding 99d. A love of beautiful UI and championing SEO sits at the heart of their engineering craft. What’s unique about this space is the joy and fun to be had in their microsite projects, such as the 99d awards page. There’s a lot of creative freedom that comes along with showcasing a distinct brand – you get to build something custom from the ground up & even sometimes leverage different tech and tooling.
The techy bits
Every team is fullstack and looks after an end-to-end, vertical slice of the 99designs product. This means that you own part of the front-end, back-end, storage, and operations – the goal is for teams to be in control of delivering a great end-user experience.
Safe to say – it’s a big stack! Experience in web development is enough to get you started (any language is fine!), and the drive to learn the rest will work beautifully. We would also love to hear from frontend candidates who would love the opportunity to grow into a fullstack engineer too!
