About the role

Think of the software that is so fundamental to the way people work that they could not imagine doing their job without it.  Sketch and Adobe for designers; JIRA for engineers; PowerPoint for biz ops.

 

As a Senior Frontend engineer, you will help us redefine the way millions of Americans are selling and providing services to buildings in the US - think janitorial, fire life safety, elevators, HVAC.  You’ll be an early hire working closely with the founding team and early employees to establish the frontend architecture for years to come.

 

Beautiful software makes the complex simple.  Our product, Atlas, abstracts the maddening complexity of commercial property data and each of our customer’s bespoke workflows to a product with Gmail like simplicity – the only product of its kind in the market.

 

We are based in, and love, the seven square miles of San Francisco, but our customers are in every corner of America. We have shipped an impressive amount of product with a lean team, but now we have to scale to meet the demands of our customer base which is growing in both size and sophistication.

 

That is why we need you.

 

The Product

 

Our flagship product, Atlas, is a “consumer grade enterprise product.” Think Apple experience with Oracle utility. Atlas supercharges our users’ work by providing them with information on virtually every commercial property in the country. There is literally no other data source like this available anywhere. All that data is interesting, but it isn’t powerful unless you have the ability to work with it, which is why we are building a full suite of specialized software tools on top of it.

 

The Role

 

We’re looking for a talented Senior Frontend Engineer to grow our team working across our web and desktop products. As a Senior Frontend Engineer, you will be responsible for:

Owning core, complex components of the Atlas application

Drive and deliver on our product roadmap, working alongside our Head of Design, Chief Product Officer, and Product Manager to turn ideas into features

Find elegant solutions to usability problems

Provide leadership and mentorship to other engineers on the team

Ramp on new web technologies that will make Atlas better

 

Everyone has their own preferences, but we all share responsibility for and work on the entire platform from UI to database.

 

Every commercial property means gargantuan data sets, which in turn means high performance and architecture demands on the software you build. We operate in small teams of high performers with clear product goals. We use Swift, Ruby, Postgres, PostGIS, Google Maps, AWS, Angular, and Python among others.

 

Requirements

 

·       A bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related subject

·      5-7+ years of professional frontend engineering experience working on external facing applications

·      3+ years of experience with a frontend framework such as React/Redux, Angular, or Vue

·      Expert knowledge of JavaScript.

·      Strong experience with HTTP, HTML, CSS, and web security concepts.

·      Experience using Javascript typing languages / linters (Typescript, ESLint).

·      Comfortable using the Unix command line

·      A selfless and team oriented personality, proactive tendencies, excellent communication skills

·      A strong work ethic, and the experience or desire to work at a growth stage startup

·      The desire to improve yourself and be a positive influence on those around you

·      An instinctive drive to write quality code, the humility to understand and improve existing code, and the wisdom to make tradeoffs between elegance and efficiency without sacrificing product quality

 

Nice to Haves

 

·       Experience with any of the following: Base Web, Fusion.js, GraphQL

·       Solid understanding of user-centered design and interaction design principles

·       Strong attention to detail

·       Stay up to date with technology and how to apply it to solve real-world business problems

·       Want to form the core of a growing engineering and develop its culture
