Front-end Software Engineer

Menlo Park, CA

Who You Are

You are an outstanding Front-end Software Engineer who excels at building modern browser-based JavaScript applications that make Ajax calls to RESTful Microservices. You have worked with client-side JavaScript frameworks such as React or AngularJS. You want to go deeper with client-side technologies to build the next generation of web applications.

You hold yourself to a high standard when it comes to writing clean, performant, and maintainable code. You are productive and deliver high quality front-end software where the separation of concerns is clear and follows architectural best practices. You apply software patterns well and take testing your code seriously. You write unit tests while writing production code rather than as an afterthought. Your code meets the rigorous standards needed for Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment workflows. 

You care deeply about your work and its impact on your team’s productivity. You work well in cross-functional settings that include User Experience Designers, Product Owners, Data Scientists, and Service Layer Engineers. You are constantly proactive in finding new ways to improve the design, performance, and testing of the software that you and your team build. You value the security of a company with a proven business model and enjoy the opportunities a startup offers.

You have a great work ethic and are able to take on projects from start to finish, either solo or collaborating with other engineers. You inspire the best in your teammates. On a personal note, you are fun to work with; you maintain a positive attitude throughout the Agile Sprint cycle.
