We’re only able to consider applicants based in the United States at this time. (You can work remotely anywhere in the United States, or from our office in San Francisco.)

We are looking for an experienced front-end engineer who knows their way around React to help us develop an online platform (we’d need your help with the web side of things). We’re a small (<20) engineering team distributed around the US & Europe, with an office in San Francisco. We iterate quickly, ship every day, build for the long term, and are looking for smart, independent engineers who want to ply their trade with like-minded people.

Responsibilities

  • Architect, build, deploy and iterate on new features and capabilities of the Archipelago application stack.
  • Collaborate with other engineers, design, and product to build out new capabilities and designs.
  • Build fast but design for the feature through architecting efficient and reusable components.
  • Own the quality of your deliverable through good design, implementation and unit testing.
  • Ship code to production frequently.

Experience and Qualifications

  • 5+ years of frontend SaaS application development experience
  • Experience building responsive and cross-browser compatible web applications with a strong UI focus
  • At least some production environment coding experience with ES6/ES5, TypeScript, HTML, CSS, or similar.
  • Proven track record of delivering highly-performant and scalable software solutions, and commitments to demanding business customers.
  • Knowledge of best practices & patterns for large scale web applications.
  • Ability to work as part of a team but also focus and execute on your deliverables.

Desired but not Required

  • At least some production environment coding experience in ReactJS and related technologies
  • Experience building applications for the insurance industry.

Benefits

  • You’ll join at an early stage of the company, so you can take something from 0 to 1
  • We’re a supportive team who will give you as much assistance or independence as you like

We have an office in San Francisco, but most of your engineering teammates work remotely from around the world. Pre-existing remote work experience would be a big plus. If you’d like to work remotely, please note that we’re only able to consider applicants based in the US at this time.
