Jobs at Clearhead

Front End Developer

Location: Austin, TX

Department: Clearhead

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

Clearhead, named “3rd Fastest Growing Small Company” in Central Texas and now proudly wearing the recently awarded "Best Places to Work in Austin" for 2016 title is looking for a Front-End Developer to compliment our whip-smart team.



Highly curious and intuitive front-end developer with 1-4 years of experience and a passion for all things web.


You are interested in A/B testing and using data to make decisions.  You enjoy reverse engineering (hacking) others’ projects to figure out how to make them do what you want them to.  You are as interested in developing teams and culture as you are code.


Develop A/B test variation code for our clients using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. You will use A/B testing and analytics tools like Optimizely, Maxymiser, Adobe Target, Google Analytics (and more!) to test new front end user experiences and validate their performance with data. You'll also get to mentor junior developers and contribute to tools and best practices that help us deliver high quality code, so a genuine passion for development (both code & people!) is a must.

Success for this role is to creating high quality A/B experiments that provide Clearhead’s awesome Fortune 500 Clients with real data and actionable insights, so that they may make revenue impacting decisions based on the validated learnings derived from your work.


Your Day

  • Develop high-quality A/B and MVT experiments using custom HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and split testing software suites from the likes of Optimizely, Maxymiser, and Adobe
  • Collaborate with Clearhead’s Engagement, UX Design and Measurement & Analytics teams to validate our experiments to:
    • capture test data by leveraging tagging and analytics software solutions (e.g. Google Tag Manager and Google Analytics)
    • analyze test data, derive insights, develop recommendations and clearly present results to clients
  • Develop strong client relationships with client’s development and product teams to achieve a ‘trusted developer’ status, so that they always feel comfortable letting you hack their products
  • Define and iterate on the development and quality assurance processes that will make the Clearhead A/B test development team the best combination of agile, efficient, and bug-free possible
  • Work in this amazing space (http://www.pennfieldaustin.com/) in the best part of Austin (SoCo!)


  • Know you know a lot
  • Know you don’t know it all
  • Are methodical in your approach to writing, testing, and designing code
  • Have 1-4 years working as a web developer on both desktop and mobile web products
  • Have a rock solid understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Can write jQuery functions and regular expressions in your sleep
  • Have familiarity with Node.JS
  • Have some familiarity with popular JS frameworks, such as Angular, React, Backbone, etc.
  • Are painfully familiar with all the challenges of the various web browsers
  • Love web development with a passion and perhaps even hope that one day native apps will go the way of their desktop predecessors
  • Live in Austin, TX or are willing to relocate (it's gorgeous here!)

Bonus You

  • Have run an A/B or multivariate test and used the data generated from it to make a product decision.
  • Have experience with third-party JavaScript.
  • Have experience mentoring and/or training other developers
  • Love live music and/or office-dogs and/or sports and/or craft beer
  • Eager to be part of a team that lives their values
