Happy Cog is looking for a full-time Frontend Developer to join our team. We’re a growing interactive agency of 70+ people with great clients (like Google, Airbnb, &pizza, Twelve South, Etsy, The Associated Press, New York City, St. Regis, Columbia University, and WPP) and an incredible roadmap.

You’ll be a member of our development team, working closely with our other fantastic front-end and backend developers during every phase of your projects. You’ll also be communicating directly with clients, project managers, and designers to understand their requirements and present your work. Your job will be fun, challenging, and interesting.

You’ll be working on 2-3 projects at any time; typically one large buildout and a few smaller projects to keep things fresh. 

You will:

  • Bring visual designs to life using the latest in libraries, frameworks, and tooling.
  • Learn new technologies on the job. We do not specialize in any one language, framework, tool, or methodology – we require our engineers to be resourceful when it comes to learning about shiny new things.

You may be a great fit for this role if you:

  • Are able to write high quality, well documented, and maintainable code.
  • Can empathize with our clients needs and recommend the best possible technical solutions for their unique situations.
  • Work on large projects with a team of multiple of engineers, UI designers, and product/project managers.
  • Have digital agency or freelancing experience.
  • Are an empathetic, caring, and emotionally intelligent human being - code monkeys need-not apply.
  • Are equallly interested in both modern stateful JavaScript frameworks and advanced frontend visual techniques.
  • Have demonstrable professional experience with at least one JavaScript framework, such as React, Vue, Angular, etc.

Projects you could work on:

Happy Cog is a growing company, and we have more projects than ever, which is why we're hiring! Every project is unique, and you'd be working on those that your skills and experience would be best suited for. Here are some examples of projects we've worked on recently so you can get an idea of what we do. Our tech stack varies from project to project, but some that are used more frequently include Node.js, Typescript, React, Angular, Foundation, Tailwind, Webpack, ES6, and (many) others.

  • Building out modular/component based visuals in tandem with HTTP APIs and modern CMS platforms (we're not big fans of rigid "templates").
  • Experimenting with advanced visual techniques and animations to test the limits of what is possible in modern CSS.
  • Defining and setting up a strong foundation for long term maintainability for large scale design systems, and architecting solutions for today's problems and accommodate what future iterations might bring.
  • Consult with our in-house visual design team on technical feasibility, prototyping complex interactions or dynamic interfaces, or brainstorming on possible solutions to the problem at hand.


  • You should have a minimum of 3 years of professional experience, preferably in a technical role.

What we offer:

  • Healthy work/life balance.
  • A creative environment to do the best work of your career.
  • An amazing team of developers, designers, marketers, and project managers.
  • Flexible hours.
  • Flexible paid vacation policy.
  • Health, Dental, and Vision insurance.
  • Retirement plan with company matching.
