About the role

We’re looking for a motivated frontend engineer who will help drive the look & feel for our docs, website, and product. This is a great role for a talented frontend developer looking to build the core UI/UX for a fast-growing, open source security startup.

We use Tailwind CSS to unify the look and feel of our website, docs, and product. The ideal candidate will have experience with Tailwind CSS in order to hit the ground running. If you're not a Tailwind expert, that's ok! We value motivation to learn quickly and craft quality UIs above all else.

Responsibilities include:

  • Consistently apply our style guide across all of our brand properties
  • Translate Balsamiq Wireframes and Figma design files into Tailwind-powered clean HTML & CSS
  • Work with other full-stack engineers to build Phoenix Liveview Components for our main product
  • Integrate Tailwind-powered frameworks such as into our main docs and website

Here are the key features that make this role unique:

  • Design is core to security: Firezone keeps networks secure. Misconfigured security products are a common cause of security breaches, so your ability to craft a usable experience will be critical to why customers choose our product.
  • All of your work will be open-source at our main repo:
  • Opportunity to collaborate with other open-source developers from around the world
  • Stipend to spend on learning resources (books, e-courses, etc)

About the interview

Hiring Process

We value the ability to learn quickly, take ownership, and ship product features over raw years of experience or company logos on your resume. Our goal is to make a well-informed decision based on your ability to do the work you’ll be expected to do at Firezone without subjecting you to a long drawn-out process. Our process involves:

  1. Introduction Call - A chance to connect and see if there is interest from both sides, share more about our vision and roadmap, and learn more about your experience.
  2. Take-home Challenge - We're not fans of live, hours-long coding interviews since they don't resemble how most engineers get work done. Instead, we'll give you a 1-2 hour take-home challenge related to the role. You’ll be solving a problem similar to something you’d face in your day-to-day work.
  3. Take-home Followup Call - We’ll hop on a call to go through the completed take-home challenge and a few technical Q&A related to the role.
  4. Final call - If we have any additional questions we’ll schedule a short follow up call.
  5. Background and reference checks.
  6. Offer Decision
