ABOUT SIMPLEPART:

SimplePart builds smart world-class eCommerce and Electronic Parts Catalog (EPC) solutions for the world’s leading automakers. If you’ve bought an OEM car part online from a car dealer in the last decade, you likely used SimplePart’s technology. Our marketing, platform and data connects more than 9 million monthly online shoppers to the parts, accessories and service they need to keep their cars running.

We are and will always be a data and engineering company – our products handle information at massive scale, extending well beyond off-the-shelf eCommerce. Our teams are fast-paced, versatile and ready to take on technology’s greatest challenges and make an impact on millions of users. Our stack is SQL (stored procedures), C# and Vue.js running a Component model on top of Webforms. We host on owned equipment (not cloud) and we do no outsourcing or offshore work of any kind. This is a fun, flexible, iterative team focused exclusively on our eCommerce and EPC platform.

THE ROLE:

In this UI Developer role, you’ll live on the Design team, working hand-in hand with both the rest of the Design team, as well as the Development team, in a hybrid agile (two week sprint) model. Your primary focus will be bringing to life front-end interactions and components to create elegant, simple, accessible experiences for our global shopper base. You will be working hands-on to prototype, develop, and refine user interface components, ensuring that these components and the overall application are robust, easy to maintain and scale, and pixel-perfect.
