Freelance Front-end Engineer

Thinx

At Thinx Inc. we are committed to breaking the taboo around menstruation and incontinence. By reimagining feminine hygiene products to provide support, comfort, confidence, and peace of mind, we aim to eliminate shame and empower women and girls around the world.

This is an open position for a freelance front-end engineer to join our team. Our wider team is currently composed of 4 other front-end engineers + Associate Director of Engineering, a 6 person UX and Digital Design squad, and a 2 person Data/Analytics team. As a member of our team, you’ll build user experiences, launch products, and support the marketing efforts.

You'll work closely with our other Front-end engineers, as well as our UX Team and report directly into our Associate Director, Engineering. Furthermore, you'll work alongside Brand Marketing, Digital Growth Marketing, Content, Operations, and Customer Experience teams to bring new creative initiatives and digital products to the world. Some interest in UX/UI, digital product management, marketing, and e-commerce is important for finding success in this role.

No college degree is necessary and we do hire autodidacts and bootcamp grads. However, at least 2 years of real-world experience (Shopify/ecommerce, in particular, would move you to the front of the line) is necessary to be considered for this role.
