Job Title : Senior Front-end Engineer
We're looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to join the engineering team at Touchcore. Want to create a simple product that allows anyone to do complex, incredible things with the world's APIs? Then keep reading!
We know applying for and taking on a new job at any company requires a leap of faith. We want you to feel comfortable and excited to apply at Touchcore.
Even though our job description may seem like we're looking for a specific candidate, the role inevitably ends up tailored to the person who applies and joins.
Regardless of how well you feel you fit our description, we encourage you to apply if : You care deeply about improving frontend technology so our customers can have a great experience using our product.
Things You Might Do
Touchcore is a small, fast-growing, and people-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization.
That said, here are some things you'll probably do :
Research, guide, and execute frontend architecture changes, including but by no means limited to GraphQL, server-side React rendering, and Flow typing.
Build reusable React components with modular CSS, manage data on the client with Redux and GraphQL, and test everything with Jest.
Measure and resolve performance bottlenecks, using tools like Chrome DevTools, Lighthouse, WebPagetest, or custom tooling.
Refactor or improve existing code. We've migrated most of our frontend to React, but we still have some Backbone code to clean up.
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.
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.
Python, 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.
