Front End Engineering Lead

Published date Posted on Indeed on May 05, 2022 (19 d ago)

What we're looking for

We are looking for a software engineer with 10-15 years experience to lead our front-end engineering efforts at Talentful. We are embarking on a mission to invent the future of recruiting, to change the status quo. You will be one of our first engineers on this mission, and will be part of the founding team reporting to the CPTO. This is a fully remote position, (almost) anywhere in North America.

What you’ll be doing

As the tech lead for the frontend you will have full ownership of the code structure, internal patterns and programming methods used to build the product. You’ll help promote a collaborative and learning team culture, where everyone happily pitches in wherever help is needed, and both teaches and learns from others without ego. You’ll be spending a large part of your day writing code as part of a 7 person (4 FE/3 BE) engineering team (by the end of 2022).

How we strive to work

  • Don’t be annoying, and don’t be easily annoyed

  • Bring the person you want to be to work

  • Design Matters

  • UX matters most

  • Programming is a team sport

  • We ship daily, we rest daily.

  • Unused code is debt

  • Quality is not a variable, only Time or Scope

  • Pragmatic over Dogmatic

  • Kanban not Scrum

  • Code not estimates

  • Debate over Deliberation

  • We like discussions and problem solving with our teammates live

  • We have daily zoom standups

  • We’re present when we’re present, zoom is camera on

  • Tickets are for tracking not discussion

  • If it’s blocked, unblock it

  • Waiting is losing

How we strive to engineer

  • If AWS solves it, we use it

  • Feature flags over Branches

  • You write some code you write some (unit & integration) tests

  • Key Value Stores over Relational Databases

  • We instrument and monitor all the things

  • Remote development environments

Our Tools

  • Java and Typescript/React

  • Github / Github Codespaces

  • AWS

  • Slack

  • GMail, Google Docs

  • In testing: Coda

  • All the rest, TBD!

About you

  • You love software engineering, the profession, the craft.

  • You appreciate and strive for great user experience and visual design

  • You care about the user, security, uptime, reliability and performance

  • You are driven to ship

  • You care about the tools

  • You care about the developer experience

  • You care about modern programming techniques (BDD / XP)

  • You’re a constant learner with an open mind

  • You strongly believe engineering is always in service of delivering great experiences.

  • You balance when you need to write deeply tested bullet proof code, and when you just need to ship.

  • Dan North’s missive on CUPID resonates with you:

What you’ve done

  • You regularly happily and successfully help others come up to speed on code bases and programming techniques

  • You’ve built a number of highly performant SPA’s with excellent design

  • You’ve handled countless on-call incidents and debugged and remediated plenty of production issues in the past decade

  • You’ve added your instrumentation to your code base to satisfy your curiosity and make sure it works.

  • You’ve read a bunch of articles on software engineering practices and tooling in the past month

  • You’ve spent 8+ years working with JavaScript / Typescript / React and associated technologies.

  • You wrote production level code this week


  • Excellent Medical, Dental, and Vision packages

  • 401k plan

  • Uncapped vacation policy

  • Monthly wellness stipend

  • Monthly company get-togethers and team outings

  • Monthly day of dedicated L&D (TalentDay)
