Description

Come explore with us

Who we are
----------
We're a small group of people (also, incidentally, a profitable company) dedicated to researching women's sexual pleasure, and developing compelling content based on what we've discovered during the process. (Spoiler: it's incredibly fascinating.) You can see our work at https://www.omgyes.com

We get a huge amount of positive feedback from our users, who tell us how much it has helped their relationships and sex life, and generally made them happier. It's been a wonderful, fulfilling journey.

What we would like you to do
----------------------------
There's the everyday side of running a busy website -- getting a better sense of what our users are doing (analytics), helping us build different user acquisition channels, making sure things like video work across devices and in all of our supported languages.

There's new site features and content development -- finding ways to present our new research insights, using data visualization, interactive models, videos, or whatever else might best convey information.

There's mentorship -- we have another frontend developer who is just starting along that path. We would like a mentor who can teach them well, and work together to build something great.

Who we're looking for
---------------------
You are completely at home in the browser and development environment. When someone proposes a new site feature, you've already assessed its impact on usability, figured out which files you'll edit, and half-written the JavaScript and CSS by the time they finish their pitch.

You haven't set out to memorize the MDN, but instead to think about *why* at all turns. Your experience has given you opinions and brought discipline to your coding practice, but not eradicated your sense of beauty.

You enjoy working both with existing and new codebases. Our existing codebase is like many -- it contains both flaws and elegance. Overall, it's pretty good. You enjoy getting into another dev's mindset, and learning to build new things without hating the old.

Who you will work with
----------------------
- A designer, to build out new UI
- The research team, to design new interactive content
- The backend developer, to create a clean and usable API and make sure content is served efficiently
- The marketing team, to help users find our site, and help us understand why they came, what they're looking for, and how we can better serve them
