  • Firespring only hires passionate, ambitious people—the type that will “bring it” every day.
  • We work hard, we play harder.
  • Once a year, we shave our heads together. (An optional activity, of course.)
  • Inc. Magazine named Firespring one of the “50 Best Workplaces” in America. We like them too.  
  • We love to give back to the community. In fact, every full-time Firespringer receives a paid day off every month to volunteer for a nonprofit organization of their choice.
  • We serve nearly 8,000 brands, businesses and nonprofits in all 50 states and 11 countries across six continents. I guess you can say we get around.
  • That’s the skinny on who we are. Now we want to tell you about who we’re looking for.

Job Description

Front-End Engineer—pretty straight forward, don’t you think?

But Firespring looks for something different in the engineers we hire. We're looking for someone who is passionate about web design and development. As mentioned in the job title, you will be working with our SBF team. Not abbreviated, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a nonprofit aimed at raising funds to help find cures for childhood cancer. That’s right, we have whole team dedicated to this organization. And you will be a part of it. Pretty cool, right? In addition to producing some stellar code, our engineers work in a highly collaborative environment. Our average day is spent coding, interacting, joking around and exceeding the expectations of our clients. In our opinion, that’s the perfect workplace.
