Web Developer

Why web development at Parse.ly?

Parse.ly is used by 300+ of the world's largest media companies, and our real-time dashboard is integrated with over 2,500 high-traffic websites.

To get a sense of our dashboard and its design, see screenshots 12345.

Currently, our website, www.parse.ly, is visited primarily by people seeking to learn information about our software-as-a-service for content/audience analytics. Like many otherSaaS companies, our website primarily serves as a brochure for the commercial products we offer.

This is changing, however. Increasingly, our website is becoming a destination in itself. For example, our referrer dashboard was cited by the press hundreds of times in the last few months, including places like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times, TechCrunch, Axios, Quartz, and many others.

We'd love to have that trend continue. That's where you come in. As a Web Developer on the Parse.ly team, you'll help turn our website into a living, breathing representation of our real-time data.

Web development is a team sport

In this role, you'll work with a talented team -- an amazing web developer who wrote the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript powering our current website and a talented designer who knows our brand guidelines and can make quick work of Photoshop and Illustrator tasks. You'll also gain access to our awesome marketing team, led by our brilliant VP of Marketing, for informing copy, positioning, and distribution.

To excel here, you'll need be a master of HTML/CSS/JavaScript; have experience with D3.js and similar JavaScript-based data visualization tools; and know how to rapidly develop public web assets that get visited by thousands -- maybe millions -- of people.

What you'll do

  • Write HTML, CSS (LESS), and JavaScript code that improves our front-facing website, blog, knowledge base, and related Parse.ly-owned sites.
  • Build interactive data visualizations in D3.js, which get published publicly and cited widely.
  • Come up with novel data presentation designs and data visualizations.
  • Help transition our static website to a more dynamic experience for visitors.
  • Participate in a redesign of our blog and knowledge base, shifting from Wordpress themes to using Wordpress as a headless CMS, and unifying its design with our othermarketing and public web assets.
  • Analyze website usage data to improve conversion rates and company goals.

What you should have

  • Ideally 4+ years experience shipping awesome web experiences.
  • Strong typography, layout, and visual design expertise.
  • Comfort with the command line and git.
  • Knowledge of one backend programming language (e.g. Python, PHP, Ruby, etc.)
  • Ability to communicate and collaborate with both technical and non-technical people.
  • Senior level of proficiency with JavaScript.
  • Dribbble, Behance, or similar design portfolio.
  • History of shipped user interfaces and web experiences in whose delivery you played a major part.
