The Opportunity
We are looking for an experienced Front End Architect with expertise in React (with TypeScript) to join our team to help build the future of work. We'll be leaning on your experience in building amazing user experience on the front-end.
Successful candidates will be working closely with cross-functional engineering teams across multiple divisions to help them deliver awesome software that our customers love. You will have a crucial role in designing, implementing, and maintaining a robust and user-friendly frontend architecture, with a focus on component library development, user experience, accessibility, security, and performance.
You'll work closely with people across different offices, mainly with the design lead on the west coast timezone. You may also be required to travel to our HQ in Redwood City and our office in Toronto. We are open for candidates on the west coast.
Your Job Responsibilities
What you will be doing:

  • Own the architecture and big-picture thinking across the platform in relation to front-end development.

  • Collaborate closely with the design head to ensure seamless user experiences and translate design concepts into intuitive and visually appealing frontend interfaces.

  • Working closely with the design team, own the reusable and scalable component library to promote consistency and efficiency in frontend development across the enterprise application.

  • Advocate for and implement accessibility best practices to ensure that the frontend application is usable by individuals with disabilities, adhering to accessibility standards and guidelines.

  • Implement robust security measures to protect sensitive data, prevent security vulnerabilities, and ensure compliance with security standards and regulations.

  • Optimize frontend performance by identifying and addressing bottlenecks, reducing load times, and improving overall application speed

  • Provide technical guidance, mentorship, and thought leadership to frontend developers, and influence the team at large to adopt best practices and continually think about great user experience and high code quality.

  • Collaborate with QA teams to define testing strategies, participate in code reviews, and ensure high-quality frontend deliverables through automated testing, linting, and other quality assurance practices.

  • Identify and implement tools, frameworks, and processes to enhance developer productivity, streamline workflows, and enable efficient collaboration within the frontend development team and with other stakeholders.

  • Establish and enforce coding standards, best practices, and conventions to maintain a clean, maintainable, and scalable codebase.

    Your Skill Set
    What makes you a great fit for our team:

    • You are user-focused - we solve our customer's problems together; everybody has a say in planning, design & execution.

    • You're a great communicator. This role will require leading discussions with multiple teams from different functions of the business. Presenting ideas and answering questions in open discussion is no problem for you.

    • 5+ years of React experience with a strong understanding of its internals as well as a thorough knowledge of the wider javascript ecosystem.

    • 10+ years of overall experience with at least 5+ years of experience deploying and maintaining applications on AWS. Although this role is mostly front-end, a good understanding of the entire stack is a must.

    • You love identifying new technologies, patterns, and techniques and planning out how we can roll them out across teams to improve productivity, code quality, and user experience across every division.

    • An affinity for profiling and analyzing code to identify areas for improvement as well as a solid understanding of browser internals.

    • Experience building an in-house component library with a good understanding of modular CSS and bundlers.

    • Comprehensive understanding of all aspects of automated testing and CI/CD including challenges specific to the frontend domain.

    • Strong knowledge and understanding of functional programming patterns.

    • Excited about working in a fast-paced startup environment.

      We'd especially love to hear from you if:

      • You have proven excellence in writing readable and efficient TypeScript code.

      • You have a good track record of project leadership and mentorship of software engineers.

      • You have experience working with micro-frontends and associated technologies like federated modules and single-spa.

        Our job titles may span more than one career level. The starting base pay for this role is between $180,000 - $240,000. The actual base pay is dependent upon many factors, such as: training, transferable skills, work experience, business needs and market demands.
