Job description

Cypress is ambitiously changing the status quo of testing on the web with our next-generation open source Test Runner and a Dashboard Service that enable an unprecedented developer experience. Our mission is focused squarely on making testing faster, easier, and more approachable than ever before.

Cypress is remote-friendly, and we frequently hire directly from our own passionate user base. As a developer, you’ll help build tools or services that immediately impact the workflow of thousands of organizations and tens of thousands of developers using Cypress around the world.

Our stack & process

  • Our entire product-stack and codebase is written in JavaScript and TypeScript.

  • Our backend is written using Node, including REST based microservices and GraphQL API’s.

  • We use PostgreSQL as our primary datastore.

  • We use Redis to power our queueing system and also utilize it for caching.

  • Many of our core products are open source, and your public contributions will be visible to the community.

  • We care deeply about code quality and ensure everything we release is reviewed and well-tested in our CI pipeline.

  • We are an engineering lead company at our core, which means we encourage all team members to lead a proposal process for introducing new ideas and features managed entirely in Github.

Responsibilities

  • Develop new features, enhance existing features, and implement bug fixes in existing code in both the Cypress Test Runner and Dashboard.

  • Write lots of unit and integration tests.

  • Build highly performant web applications using Node.js and JavaScript.

  • Self document development processes.

  • Scope, estimate, and prioritize work.

  • Peer review others code and give actionable feedback.

  • Conduct demos and/or presentations to developers about our product and its use.

Requirements

  • Be passionate about quality software development.

  • Have experience developing highly performing web applications using Node.js and JavaScript.

  • Be proficient in writing test-driven code and excited about unit testing.

  • Comfortable giving demos, presentations, and guiding developers through testing methodologies.

  • Aware of cutting edge technology and tooling.

  • Value and understand the importance of open source and be comfortable commiting to a largely open source codebase.

  • Experience architecting applications and code that is tested, scalable, and performant.

  • Ability to research and make decisions on your own about best technologies to utilize for new projects.

  • Have a deep understanding of how the DOM works, web tooling, debugging, and memory profiling.

  • Learn fast and thrive in a constantly changing environment.

  • Be a self starter and take the initiative to complete tasks with minimal supervision.

Cypress is an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

    About Argent

    Join us as we reimagine the future of money and the internet. Our mission is to make them more open and fair, driving new economic opportunities and putting people in control of their digital lives.

    To start we've built the first crypto wallet with the simplicity and security of the best new bank apps - yet we never hold users’ assets. It takes the complexity out of Ethereum and is driven by our dedication to user experience.

    We launched in 2018 and have a world-class team with experience scaling mobile apps to tens of millions of users. Our eclectic backgrounds include PhDs in nuclear physics and quantum cryptography. We’re fortunate to be backed by the top VCs in Europe, including Index Ventures, Creandum and firstminute capital.

    The Senior Javascript Engineer role

    You'll lead the development of several important areas:

    1. The Argent Security Center. A core part of the Argent experience, this web application helps to secure our users' data. It's a customer facing React app that interacts with the Ethereum blockchain and our own backend services.
    2. The Argent Javascript SDK. You'll develop, publish and maintain this product. This is a vital part of how we'll help millions of people access a new, decentralized internet.
    3. Our Internal Dashboard. We have an internal view to help solve customer issues and keep our engineering team happy when debugging (also in React).

    You'll have extensive experience building and maintaining web products and be fluent in JavaScript. Ideally you'll also have some experience of Ethereum JS libraries. In the role you'll work closely with the founders and a small team of highly skilled and experienced engineers and designers.

    Requirements

    • 5+ years experience with building and maintaining web products
    • Fluent in JavaScript/Typescript and its functional style
    • Solid understanding of Javascript frameworks such as React/Vue
    • Experience with Ethereum JS libraries (web3js, ethers.js, ...)
    • Experience with Node.js
    • Fluency in written and spoken English

    How we work

    We work remotely, transparently and balance Argent with the rest of our lives. We’ve all got loved ones with unpredictable schedules, be they kids or cats.

    Although we’re a distributed team you'll need to be based in the UK or Europe. This is because we find communication much easier when we’re in similar time zones and a short flight away. Within Europe you can choose to work wherever you like!

    We get together for a week every quarter so we can collaborate in person, explore new solutions, and have fun. So far we’ve been to Nice, Toulouse, Brussels, Lisbon and Barcelona.

    Equal opportunities

    At the heart of what we do is making crypto accessible to everyone. We want the team itself to reflect that diversity so we’d strongly encourage applications from underrepresented demographics.

  • We're looking for a Senior Backend Engineer

    Join us on our mission to help the best products win.

    It's often said that:

    The best products don't win, the ones with the best distribution do.

    We're doing something about that. Blanket gives the best products an unfair advantage by giving them access to the best distribution.

    The first problem we're solving on our way to fulfill that mission is to automate the Sales Development process. That's prospecting, reaching out, crafting collateral, and booking sales demos.

    We're looking for teammates that need to see their work have an immediate impact, and enjoy fast-paced and high-growth environments. Join us and play a crucial part in building a platform that some of the most respected companies will use to increase their sales.
