  • Taskade is building real-time collaboration for distributed teams, starting with tasks. We are a team of startup veterans obsessed about improving team collaboration, workflow, and productivity. At Taskade, you’ll have the chance to work with a small, closely knit team and make a big impact on our product, business, and engineering efforts.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    • We are looking for skilled front-end engineers with a deep understanding of user interface and design. We’re a small team, and in order for us to thrive we need members who have the drive and ability to work on a wide array of products.

    • From working on our landing pages, templates showcase, to the user on-boaridng experience, you’ll get the chance to experience a wide variety of development scenarios.

    We value “T-shaped” people. That is, people who are both generalists (highly skilled at a broad set of valuable things—the top of the T) and also experts (among the best in their field within a narrow discipline—the vertical leg of the T). An expert who is too narrow has difficulty collaborating. A generalist who doesn’t go deep enough in a single area ends up on the margins, not really contributing as an individual.

    REQUIREMENTS

    • Experience with JavaScript

    • Experience with React, React Native and Redux

    • Deep understanding of cloud architecture and application deployment.

    • Be deeply interested in the long-term view. Yes, we need to deliver value rapidly, but our problem domain will grow dramatically over time. Figure out where we need to be in a year and identify how we'll get there incrementally, while helping us manage and constrain technical debt and other forms of unnecessary complications which will in the long run serve us poorly.

    • To be a quick learner. We’re looking for software engineers who thrive on learning new technologies. As a startup, and we have a lot of problem domains that need to be worked on, and you should have the ability and drive to adapt accordingly.

    • Versatility. You understand how all the pieces fit together (front-end, database, network layer, etc.) and how they impact the performance of your application.

    • Work on the Rainforest QA dashboard, our single page application where users manage their test suite, configure test runs, review results and set up their account

    • Work on our tester application, where our crowd of testers connect to our virtual machine infrastructure to conduct tests and submit their results

    • Extensive experience in Javascript and be extremely knowledgeable of the language and associated ecosystem

    • Extensive experience in React (or equivalent framework / libraries) and be extremely knowledgeable of the framework and associated ecosystem

    • Experience in writing and maintaining CSS for large projects

    • Enthusiasm with building web applications using modern tools like ES7, React, Redux, CSS Modules, Flow, and Webpack - amongst others

    • Professional experience in engineering SaaS products

    • Experience leading projects with teams

    • An ownership mindset: you should look not only at what you’re asked to do, but ask why you’re doing it and how it impacts on the rest of the product, our customers, and whether it makes sense. We expect you to be responsible for your work and to resolve any bugs you might ship

    • Excitement to learn

    • Identify with our company values

    • No BS, No Ego: We are radically candid with each other in every interaction. This means a lack of politics, a lack of showboating, a lack of BS. This also means brevity, clarity of thought, and clarity of communication. We give and take feedback without ego, with the knowledge that we all are operating with good intent. No ego is the check system to balance no BS and keep it kind. No ad-hominem attacks.

    • 1% better every day: Continuous improvement is what motivates us. We design our product, our organization and our careers to be continually improving. Mistakes are only bad if they are repeated. Experiments are only wasted if they are not learned from.

    • Own the journey: We are all owners. We demand that of each other. The journey we own is threefold: our customers’ journey, our company’s journey and our personal journey. Our reason for existence is to nail our customer journey, so that we can scale our company’s success.

    • Flexible, remote work options

    • Generous vacation time

    • Competitive compensation and stock options

    • Professional development, career coaching, and conference attendance

    At Rainforest QA we believe that diverse teams improve our business. We are an equal opportunity employer and do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
