Work remotely from anywhere as a Software Developer

Remote Senior Frontend Engineer JavaScript/AngularJS/React

THE OPPORTUNITY


We are a young, lean, funded AngelPad company looking for an experienced Senior Frontend Engineer with experience building SaaS products. We are a fully distributed team with people working all around the world. You will have the flexibility and freedom to work in the environment of your choosing, whether that be at home, a cafe or co-working space. We're looking for a senior engineer to help build our API-First core app using JavaScript/AngularJS/React and Scala/Play.


ABOUT YOU


You love code. You love to take raw ideas and build great products with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. You know JavaScript is imperfect, but you embrace its functional side and genuinely enjoy coding with it. You might like to talk about obscure computer science topics, but really, you just want to write simple code and ship new products and features to customers (or improve existing ones).


You love great UX. You spend most of your time coding, but you also have an eye for great design and a feel for great UX. Maybe you were once a designer (or still are) or maybe your creative outlet has always been the code. Either way, you care about more than just the code.


You love learning new things. You love researching new tech and driving forward with the implementation details. Your focus is on frontend JavaScript code, but you can dig in wherever needed. Scala, CSS, build tools, shell scripts, you name it. If you don't already know it, you're ready to learn it.


You can balance lots of concerns. Frontend apps have to take into account performance (using networks and devices that we can't control), customer demands, A/B tests, UX research, code quality, a rapidly changing ecosystem of languages and modules, and the list goes on. And we actually want to ship things too! You can balance those demands without getting overwhelmed and keep the needle moving forward.


You love helping others. You love sharing knowledge with the rest of your team, building shared tooling for other engineers, giving back to the open-source community, and directly helping customers.


WHAT YOU’LL DO



  • Research, guide, and execute frontend architecture changes, including but by no means limited to planning our migration to React, implementing Redux best practices, and transitioning code to TypeScript.

  • Build reusable React components, migrate AngularJS components to React, manage data on the client with Redux, and test everything with Jasmine.

  • Measure and resolve performance bottlenecks, using tools like Chrome DevTools, Lighthouse, WebPageTest, or custom tooling.

  • Refactor or improve existing code. We're planning to migrate our frontend to React, but we still have a lot of AngularJS code to clean up. And we constantly find ways to improve all of our JavaScript code.

  • Work closely with our product, design, and UX teams to create amazing and intuitive experiences that make it effortless to connect different apps together.

  • Help put tools, processes, and documentation in place to improve our code quality.

  • Review code written by other team members or other teams.

  • Ship to hundreds of thousands of users every day while having lots of autonomy in terms of code and feature ownership.


WHAT YOU’LL BRING



  • 5+ years of software development experience

  • Experience with building and maintaining a SaaS product at scale

  • An affinity for creating software that is extensible, performant, and easy to read

  • A degree in computer science, software engineering, or a related field
