Kickstarter is looking for a Front End Engineer in our Brooklyn office who wants to help bring creative projects to life.
About the Team
Whether it’s a first-time backer or a superbacker, our Backer Development Team’s mission is to connect people with projects they might like and to build the story of what it means to be a Kickstarter backer. Working with features like discovery, push recommendations, newsletters, and search, we build excitement about creative projects, make connections between backers and creators, and grow communities centered around creativity. We are a group of engineers, designers, data analysts, community support specialists and more who work to understand and serve both existing backer communities and new communities of potential backers and patrons.
