Senior Front End Software Engineer
The kind of person we’re looking for...
Rdio is looking for front-end software engineers, mid and senior level. We typically take designs from the product team and implement them in a short time span, and are responsible for the quality of the features we ship. We push code to production several times a day if necessary. We are looking for people that can have an immediate impact, so experienced front-end engineers are preferred, but anybody with experience working on user interfaces and a passion for detail are encouraged to apply.
If you join us, you can look forward to a lot of impact and a lot of freedom. With that comes the responsibility to ship quality code, so we’re looking for people that take quality as a point of pride.

- Implement new features for the Rdio web app
- Interact with product designers to make sure all user interactions are designed and implemented correctly
- Fix bugs as they are found
- Test features across all major browsers (except IE6!)
- Identify and fix performance issues.

- Experience with HTML/CSS
- Knowledge of native DOM APIs
- Has an opinion on innerHTML vs. document fragments
- Has an opinion on Crockford's JS style
- Understands non-intrusive JS techniques and their pros and cons
- Knowledgeable on the latest web technologies and how they may be used effectively
- Experience developing complex software with many moving parts
- Obsessive about quality
- Having developed your own client side framework or library is a big plus
