Senior Engineer (Frontend)
As a Senior Engineer at Rainforest QA you'll be part of an experienced and diverse team with members all over the world.
We were built as a distributed team from the beginning and we've committed to implementing tools and processes that allow for and support continuous and effective communication across the world.
What you'll do
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
Work on internal tooling to improve the development experience of other engineers and ship faster and safer
Collaborate with product managers and our customer facing teams to analyze customer problems and design high impact features
Lead projects to implement those features
Help other team members to achieve their goals
Continuously learn about new technologies and ways to solve problems
Work with our customer facing teams to triage, troubleshoot, and fix bugs
Write unit and integration tests (using our own product!) to ship high quality software
What we’re looking for
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
Even though this position is mainly frontend focused, we expect you to have some grasp of the whole stack to be able to effectively communicate with engineers across the team, and can make backend or infrastructure changes when the situation calls for it
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
Excellent communication skills and able to give and receive constructive feedback
Happy to review code and have your code reviewed
Can work effectively remotely with remote team members (we are a fully distributed company)
Comfortable working in a large codebase with many stakeholders
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.
How we'll reward you
Flexible, remote work options
Generous vacation time
Competitive compensation and stock options
Professional development, career coaching, and conference attendance
3 offsites per year: every ~4 months we arrange an offsite for the whole company to get together so we can get to know our colleagues better and understand what we need to do. The location is ever changing, so you will get to see some new places!
OUR COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
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.
