About DuckDuckGo

We're raising the standard of trust online, making privacy simple and accessible for everyone. (We're hiring, too!)

Actively Hiring

Hi, we’re DuckDuckGo, the Internet privacy company for everyone who wants to take back their privacy now. For over a decade, we’ve been building our all-in-one product, developing new privacy technology, and working with policymakers to make online privacy simple and accessible for all.

Our app is now downloaded more than 75M times a year, and our private search engine packaged with it has become the #2 search engine on mobile in over 21 countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Germany, and the Netherlands. Oh, and we’ve been profitable since 2014 with revenue currently exceeding $100 million a year! Now, we’re rolling out a suite of new privacy solutions, including Email Protection, App Tracking Protection and our first-ever Desktop Apps for Mac and Windows.

We’re looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer, JavaScript to help shape our all-in-one privacy solution and join our mission to show the world that protecting your privacy online can be simple.

The Opportunity

In this role, you will lead and contribute to developing new and existing products and features, demonstrating ownership over major components of our codebase while taking responsibility for their maintenance and improvement over time. By writing pragmatic, performant, and testable code that works consistently across settings, devices, and browsers, you’ll play a key role in improving the frontend software architecture, all while prioritizing privacy and user experience throughout the engineering process.

As a senior engineer, you will mentor peers and work closely with cross-functional team members through remote collaboration opportunities, including product brainstorms, technical design discussions, code reviews, and more.

What You Will Bring to DuckDuckGo

  • 7+ years experience in positions where your primary responsibility was writing code.
  • Advanced level of at least one modern Javascript framework (React, Vue, Angular, etc).
  • Advanced level of JavaScript/HTML/CSS expertise.
  • Advanced level of web application architecture expertise.
  • Experience building large-scale web applications.
  • Experience leading engineering projects with little to no oversight, including identifying success criteria and metrics and validating decisions against those metrics.
  • Experience collaborating with engineers on the backend and other platforms, such as Android and iOS.
  • Experience collaborating with product and design to build polished consumer-facing products.
  • Ability to contribute to technical architecture decisions for complex products.
  • Willingness to learn new technologies and ideas.

How We Will Support You

Our core values — build trust, question assumptions, and validate direction — underpin how we work day-to-day and the support we give our team members. We strive to empower our team members to be self-directed and self-motivated in their work.

  1. Remote First, Always: We’ve always been a fully distributed company with team members all over the world. We trust you to get your work done wherever, and whenever.
  2. Commitment to Personal Growth: Every team member has an annual budget of $1,250 USD to invest in their professional development. Every team member also has a dedicated Career Advisor, who serves as a guide to help you develop your strengths, identify your motivations, and understand your opportunities for growth.
  3. Leadership: We have many different types of leaders and possible combinations of leadership roles, so you can grow your career in a way that aligns best with your personal goals. You can seek additional leadership roles by being directly responsible for projects, taking ownership of areas of the company, developing and maintaining internal processes, or pursuing advisory roles.
  4. Work/Life Balance: Team members have the freedom and flexibility to organize their own work schedules. We want you to thrive both in and out of the office. We trust you to use good judgment and take the time off that you need to bring your best self to work.

Compensation

Annual compensation: $170,000 USD and stock options. Compensation is the same within a professional level, regardless of geographic location or functional area, and the compensation for each professional level is transparent across the organization.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We want to ensure that our hiring process is accessible. If you need reasonable accommodation for any part of the application process because of a medical condition or disability, please send an email to c[email protected] to let us know the nature of your request.

If you think you might thrive in this environment, we would love to hear from you.

  1. Sometimes we meet up! Expect to travel at least two times a year: once for our all-hands meetup and again for a team retreat (each around 4-5 days). While extenuating circumstances may impact attendance, everyone is strongly encouraged to attend.
  2. While we offer a flexible work arrangement with no core hours, expect an average full-time commitment of 40 hours per week.
  3. A successful candidate will be subject to a background check and must receive satisfactory results of the same, as a condition of joining the team.
  4. By applying for this role, you confirm that all information submitted is accurate and complete. You further acknowledge that providing false or fraudulent information during the application process is cause for denial of an offer, revocation of any existing offer, or other adverse action, up to and including termination after the start of your commencement of work.
