React Job Details

Hey there! We are a Sequoia backed SaaS startup on a mission to help e-commerce brands embrace conversational commerce as the future of selling online.
Currently, 2000+ Shopify brands across 50+ countries use BiteSpeed to drive 20%+ revenue doing everything from Whatsapp marketing to chatbots & handling support across channels.
About the role
We’re looking for a Frontend Developer to join our founding team and lead our product development. If you’re someone who thrives on high ownership, can figure stuff out on your own and wants to be part of the zero-to-one journey, this might be for you.
What you’ll do
As we’re still early at building a dedicated frontend team, responsibilities will have breadth over a lot of cool stuff
Realise Pixel-Perfect Designs: Develop Pixel-Perfect end-to-end network optimised, responsive Web Apps;
Write Robust & Reusable Code: Write clean, maintainable and reusable code and libraries for cross project sharing with solid test coverage;
Drive Performance in Frontend: Optimising performance of existing & future applications for full scale production deployments
Work directly with product, design and the backend teams to contribute to the product roadmap
And after all of it of-course, be ready to jam to this every time we push to prod -;
What makes you a good fit
If you can write code that works, we should be good but read on (disclaimer: most of what follows is not a hard requirement);
Preferred tech stacks: React & Next;
You have 2-5 years of experience building and scaling frontend systems from scratch;
You've built efficient, reusable code backed by solid test coverage in React or Vue.js (Brownie points if you have worked with state management libraries like Redux);
You have optimised performance and builds for frontend deployments at scale ;
Most of the above is us trying to sound legit about our stack, so if you’ve not worked with some of it & are open to learning or have better ideas, it’s totally cool;
Salary and Location
Location: Bangalore
Expected CTC: We pay top of market for the right folks and also offer generous equity (ESOP) to everyone in the team
Over time we’ve realised that while we’re super excited about shaping the future of commerce, a big part of why people join us and stick with us is because they resonate with our way of life. You could call it work culture - but it ends up becoming more than just that.
It’s taken us time to discover and articulate what our culture feels like, this evolving document is an attempt to candidly share what it’s like working at BiteSpeed.
Our Purpose
At BiteSpeed, work is personal. You could blame this on us being existential, but most of us are spending the best years of our lives doing this and we want to be purposeful about the kind of workplace we’re trying to create. Our purpose is about why we’re here and what we care about:-
Personal Transformation
Wealth Creation
Winning Together
Our Values
Our values are about how we do what we do. Values define the right thing to do. We hire, reward and sometimes have to let go based on our values. We have 5 core values:-
Go Above And Beyond
Making Things Happen
Say It Like It Is
Progress Over Perfection
Don’t Take Yourself Seriously, Take Your Work Seriously
Perks & Benefits
Small things we’ve done to ensure we take care of our wellness, learning & keep things fun:-
Health Insurance - Health insurance cover and accident coverage for extra cushion and mental peace when rainy days hit us
Work From Home Budget - Your gadget quirks are taken care of with our WFH budget, whether its a standing desk to burn those extra calories or showing off your cool desk setup, we’ve got you covered
Quarterly Off-sites - Quarterly off-sites are a core part of the BiteSpeed culture. Our off-sites range from intense quarter planning sessions to crazy mafia nights and competitive cricket matches (with a lot of trash talking)
Cult Fitness Membership - All work and no play makes jack a dull boy. Cult Fit and Cult Play passes to make sure we hit the gym more often
Personal Development - We sponsor courses, conference tickets, books on a case to case basis to ensure we’re constantly growing
Unlimited Leaves - We trust people to make good decisions on when they need a break and for how long (leave management systems are expensive, but that’s a separate discussion)
Salary In Advance - Trust first, by default. We pay out salaries in the first week of the month
