Job Description


Client needs a Senior Front-End Engineer to lead the development of enterprise web application and APIs asthey scale up the amount of data they are handling, the number of customers they have, their engineering headcount, and their product. You'll work very closely with their Product and Design teams as they go from ideas to designs to implementations. They are building a product that their customers will spend hours a day using -- you should be excited about not only building a usable product, but a delightful and engaging one as well. You must be a good communicator and be able to explain deep technical topics to your peers. You are a leader, a mentor, and a learner.
In this role you will also be expected to help spread front-end culture, best practices, and thought-leadership across the engineering teams.
They are a TypeScript + React shop with a self-built store system on the front-end, but they're not tied to our ways. On the API side they use Scala and Thrift for inter-service communication. As an engineer you'll take ownership of building out product and figuring out how they should build it.
You'll need strong system design fundamentals and staying up to date on industry standards is a must. For example:
  • Is the switch to Redux worth it?
  • Can RxJs standardize how we handle asynchronous operations?
  • Why is a specific API call so slow?
  • What is the ideal combination of unit and functional tests to enable developer productivity while also preventing bugs?These are the questions you should be asking yourself, and the team, on a daily basis as we grow our engineering team and figure out how to make them as productive as possible.
    Requirements
  • 5+ years experience in front-end development roles
  • Experience in establishing front-end, deployment, testing, and cross team best-practices
  • Experience with modern web-server frameworks: Express, Rails, Flask, Django, Play Framework, etc
  • Experience with React, Angular, or other modern web UI frameworks
  • Experience with persistence technologies: MySQL, PostgreSQL, Cassandra
  • History of leading teams through technical and architectural changes
