About the role

Who we are

Rownd is building the internet of the future—one that protects the privacy of every individual using it. We’re building world-class tools that help businesses protect the privacy of their customers through consent, comply with data privacy laws, and build trust for their brands. We’re also building consumer-facing privacy tech so that everyone on the planet can take more control of their identity online.

Rownd is an early-stage startup, so you’ll be getting in on the ground floor of the privacy wave. You’ll get the chance to help drive our roadmap, determine what needs to be worked on day-to-day, and collaboratively set the stage for our collective success.

If you’re excited at the prospect of building the future in a fast-paced, rapidly changing environment, then apply today!

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for a Senior Front-end Software Engineer / Web Developer who is passionate about privacy and consent and about building great user experiences that work reliably across all major browsers and platforms.

You’re the right candidate if:

  • You think data privacy and consent are important to the future of the internet.
  • You’re passionate about user interfaces on the web and appreciate that good design is at the heart of great products.
  • You enjoy getting the details just right: from layouts to satisfying animations.

What you’ll do

  • Build and maintain core product user interfaces for our business and consumer-facing web applications.
  • Work closely with our team to define what’s possible, push the limits, and turn designs into working UIs.
  • Work as a member of the software engineering team to connect the front-end and back-end via REST and GraphQL APIs.
  • Own your services from inception to deployment.

What you’ll need

A good candidate for this job probably has many of these characteristics:

  • Experience working deeply with HTML and CSS, including animations, media queries, responsive layouts, etc.
  • Proven history of developing world-class front-end web applications in Javascript and React
  • Experience in full-stack development roles where working on both the back-end (~30%) and front-end (~70%) is necessary for success
  • Experience turning medium and high fidelity design mockups into beautiful, fully-functional user interfaces
  • Experience with REST APIs and OpenAPI specifications
  • A passion and love for data privacy

It’d be cool if you also had:

  • Experience using visual design (e.g. Sketch, Adobe XD, or similar) tools
  • Experience in a DevOps environment working with Docker, Kubernetes, and public cloud platforms
  • Experience with JAMstack deployments
  • Experience with a variety of programming languages and frameworks (like Node.js, Golang, etc)
  • Experience building and/or working with GraphQL APIs

Our commitment to you

At Rownd, we put our employees first alongside our mission. We want you to feel ownership and fulfillment in your work. We strive to create a remote-first work environment where everyone feels connected to their colleagues and empowered to get things done with minimal bureaucracy. Some of the benefits we offer include:

  • Mission-led: We’re radically changing the way personal data is gathered, stored, and managed. Be a part of history.
  • Privacy: We’re a data privacy company, so we’re 100% committed to your privacy.
  • Work remotely: at home or wherever you find it easiest to focus, including access to co-working space if you choose.
  • Time off: You must take at least 2 weeks off each year. Most of us take 3-4 weeks, in addition to locally recognized holidays.
  • Health: we pay up to 100% of disability, health, and vision costs for you, with competitive rates for additional family members and dental coverage. We also include complimentary life insurance coverage at 100% of your salary.
  • Equity: Every employee shares in the ownership of Rownd.

Hiring is a two-way street: we’re evaluating you and you’re evaluating us. As you apply with your resume, we’d also appreciate some links to your best work, if possible. Conversely, we invite you to visit our platform and determine at least one thing you think should change or improve. We'll invite you to share your feedback during your interview.
