About Hodinkee

Hodinkee is an online wristwatch magazine featuring reviews, critiques, and reports on watches of a particularly high caliber. Hodinkee writes about watches in a way that everyone can understand in hopes to spark increased awareness and interest in horology with people of every age.

Job Description

HODINKEE is the foremost destination for all things in the world of horology, making watches and information about them accessible to all. Now is an exciting time to join our growing team of creative professionals who are passionate about collaborating on unique projects and providing an outstanding experience for an avid community of watch enthusiasts. Our team consists of editors, designers, engineers, customer experience specialists, operational wizards, and so many other key players who have helped cement HODINKEE’s position as the most trusted source for watch news and products.

Over the past decade, founder Ben Clymer and team have grown HODINKEE into a robust media and retail platform by providing its respected point of view on industry news and releases, investing in engaging and creative storytelling, producing a designated podcast, printing a bi-annual publication and launching and growing its own retail outlet, HODINKEE Shop. At its core, HODINKEE’s goal is to bring its readers and consumers the best in wristwatches in a way that is approachable, authentic, and honest.

What You Will Do

HODINKEE is looking for a full time Sr. Full Stack Engineer to help build the top platform for everything watch related. We are the combination of an editorial outlet, an e-commerce/retail platform, and a tech-forward product team. As a Sr. Full Stack Engineer at HODINKEE, your work will touch most of the business and enable technology to keep the experience for our readers and customers on the bleeding edge. 

From an engineering standpoint, you will need to be able to implement new features, as well as understand, work with, and refactor existing code. We are looking for someone that prefers to solve problems in the best way instead of the quickest way and is comfortable enough with development to solve problems on their own. We are a small team, so you must be organized and comfortable working in relative autonomy. 

Who You Are

At a minimum, candidates should have at least 5 years of experience in the following:

· Extensive experience working in Ruby (deep Rails knowledge is a plus)

· Extensive JavaScript experience, including knowledge of modern tooling and development techniques (proficiency with React is a plus)

· Proficiency with relational databases and SQL (Postgres preferred but not required)

· Proficiency with non-relational databases such as Redis

· Experience designing and building API’s, as well as working with 3rd party API’s

· Ability to implement responsive designs and work closely with our designers

· Proficiency working with git version control

An exceptional candidate will have some additional, preferred qualities such as:

· Experience working with Shopify or any other e-commerce platform, or experience working with technology integration in a retail commerce setting

· Experience working with languages other than Ruby and JavaScript that could bring value to our platform

· Experience working on content management systems or parts thereof, e.g. WYSIWYG editors

· Some knowledge of performance optimization, either at a language or a system level

· Familiarity with Heroku

For bonus credit, you should definitely let us know if you have:

· Experience in machine learning or other emerging technologies

· A deep interest in watch collecting and or other luxury goods

HODINKEE is proud to be an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer. We’re committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace and strongly encourage applicants from all backgrounds and walks of life. · Candidates must possess authorization to work in the U.S.
