We’re helping our customers create work cultures that people love. By focusing on our values - ownership, collaboration, empathy, pragmatism, and learning - we are changing the way that employees grow and organizations transform culture.
The Advanced Video Team is hiring a Senior Frontend Software Engineer to expand Bridge’s ability to deliver high-performance video learning at enterprise-scale.
Built on top of React, AngularJS, and Bootstrap, and ingesting a JSON API, our Frontend application will offer hands-on experience solving problems with some of the industry’s most in-demand skills.
Working alongside a small, efficient and fully distributed team, the Senior Engineer will help to design and implement new features, improve our existing code, migrate away from AngularJS, and build the next generation of interfaces that will integrate with our sister products.

- An advanced knowledge of CSS and browser quirks.
- Strong understanding of the Node / npm ecosystem.
- Experience executing on designs for various viewports including mobile, tablet and desktop.
- The ability to help troubleshoot user interaction problems efficiently.
- Excellent communication skills! We're a completely distributed remote team, and most of our communication happens through Slack and video chats. Although we welcome candidates with a different first-language, advanced comprehension of English is a must.
