Main Responsibility

  • Collaborate with our design team and define the best approach to our Product’s UI/UX
  • Discover new best practices and advocate for them with the rest of the engineering team for the frontend portion of the stack
  • Participate in code review and mentor less-experienced engineers

Secondary Responsibilities

  • Work on backend services on occasion
  • Auto the testing of frontend code for deployment processes

Needs Being Fulfilled

We need ownership right now of the frontend stack. We need leadership of a person who will distill down what needs to be done and then do it and/or get others involved as needed. And that needs to be a permanent role of ownership, not a temporary post.

Extra Projects

We have two main projects that need to be accomplished first:

  • Lift and shift our backend templates into an SPA. This includes all the server side tooling and processes that need to be identified and then implemented. Additionally, this needs to be done without interrupting the current feature flow.
  • Workout how to do automated UI integration tests so that we can rely less on humans remembering to do UI click throughs on every deploy.

Future Growth and Responsibilities

Limited to None. This role is a leadership role and an IC role and should continue to be on an on-going basis.

  • Lead our move from server-side templates to a single-page application (SPA) approach

  • Discover new best practices and advocate for them with the rest of the engineering team for the frontend portion of the stack
  • Pursue improvements to the platform and push forward initiatives to implement them
  • Participate in code review and mentor less-experienced engineers

Requirements

  • 5+ years engineering experience.
  • Professional experience with VueJS or another modern JavaScript web framework (React, Angular, etc)
  • Experience using Git in a professional environment
  • Proficiency in the English language, both written and verbal, sufficient for success in a remote and largely asynchronous work environment
  • Demonstrated capacity to clearly and concisely communicate about complex technical, architectural, and/or organizational problems and propose thorough iterative solutions
  • An inclination towards communication, inclusion, and visibility
  • Self-motivated and self-managing, with great organizational skills.
  • Demonstrated ability to work closely with other parts of the organization
