Are you excited to use technology to help people find the best financial solutions for them?

Great -- we are, too! We're excited to launch a new division within The Motley Fool that connects people with superior financial products. Think the best credit card, mortgage, insurance, or broker for a given person. It's a ‘roll up your sleeves' endeavor that we want to 10x (No, seriously. We're aiming for 10x the revenue) in the next few years. If that tickles your inner entrepreneur as much as it does ours, you might be our Fool. We are seeking a front-end software developer and designer with experience building beautiful websites and interactive experiences that will help our members find the right product for their individual situation.

We'd love to work with you if:

You solve problems: You spot issues and inefficiencies from a mile away and aren't afraid to suggest solutions and then dive in to implement them. You know when to go looking for input from others, and are constantly looking for ways to improve our code, processes, and people.You pay attention to detail: Missed details erode accountability, and that hurts when customers are trusting us to manage and invest their hard-earned savings. You actively pull in other team members to review your code and understand the value of testing when necessary.You're curious and love to learn: Whether it's the latest technology, how the Foolish business operates, or investing; you have an insatiable appetite for knowledge. And, you love to share with your fellow Fools - dropping links in Slack is like breathing for you.You take pride in your work: The thought of a customer seeing a 500 error page keeps you up at night. When a member cancels, it brings a tear to your eye. You want to ensure that every customer has a great experience with The Motley Fool because of what you build.


You're an entrepreneurial self-starter who is comfortable moving quickly in a small startup environment.5+ years of professional front end development experience.3+ years building responsive web experiences on high traffic websites.Demonstrable experience creating flexible and scalable front-end template, javascript, and sass/scss architectures.You can share an online portfolio that showcases your talent.The desire and ability to create web experiences that delight our members.You are happy to use jQuery and Bootstrap but solving problems with vanilla JS and creating your own grid when needed is right up your alley.

We should, however, make you aware that there is one notable exception to this policy. It is our strict and earnest intention — and the company's historical record will bear this out — we will never hire any of the following: robots,replicants, or morlocks. Now keep in mind we are well aware that all of the aforementioned have intentions of world domination in the future, but as of now we have no place for them at The Motley Fool … unless the year is 2122 and the revolution has already occurred. If that is the case we welcome our new robot, replicant, or morlock rulers!!! Perhaps we have said too much?
