About the role

Submittable is looking for an experienced Front-end Software Engineer to join our dynamic, growth-driven team in Seattle, WA or Missoula, MT.

This position is open to remote candidates and is an incredible opportunity for someone looking to take on a meaningful technical role in a growing company.

We're looking for engineers who can take a feature from idea to delivery. You'll manage the implementation of new features and the refactoring of existing portions of our widely used platform.

You will be a full-time individual contributor role and report to an Engineering Manager.

The Front-end Software Engineer responsibilities include:

  • Jump into our software and infrastructure, quickly coming up to speed
  • Implement new front-end features on the platform
  • Refactor or "burn down" legacy features and components
  • Identify improvements to our existing front-end. The improvements might include enhancements to our developer experience, our infrastructure architecture, and our primary software, to support near-term growth and stability
  • You'll work with a wonderful team of test engineers, product managers, and product designers
  • You'll write and review code

You will have these qualities and experience:

  • 4+ years Software Engineer experience
  • Legacy and modern Web Application design paradigms and familiarity with at least one stack. Expertise in at least one modern, JavaScript framework. Our front-end uses React and Redux
  • Software Engineering and Agile principles
  • Familiarity with modern cloud native infrastructure and design principles, specifically in the context of AWS
  • How to work well with other experienced software engineers and mentor less experienced software engineers
  • How to write well, and a preference for writing things down
  • We are interested in every qualified candidate who is eligible to work in the United States. However, we do not sponsor H-1B visas
