Join Us @ Headstart Engineering

Front-End Developer

We are looking for a Front-End developer to join our Engineering team to engineer accessible front ends that our users love and engineers enjoy working on. In the next year we will move to a new level of front-end development, adopt a unified approach to building new components and and focus on delivering new capabilities to our users.

We already help recruiters assess hundreds of thousands of applications fairly. We are growing fast and are scaling our technology platform to support that growth. If you have experience architecting and building single page applications and components using React you could be part of this journey.

Working at Headstart is something amazing: I've been able to move to another country, learn another language, spend quality time with my family and even take surf lessons in not even a year! And all of that while working fully remote, meeting with the team, solving code challenges and trying to help reduce the bias that still exists in the modern world!

Joining Headstart is one the best moves I've made in my career. It's extremely rewarding being able to plan, design and build challenging technical solutions for a product that aims to make the world a fairer place. But the best part is that I can get to do all of this together with an awesome team, and in a very flexible and supportive environment.
