Front-End Developer

WHY WORK HERE

We are an early stage, seed-funded, artificial intelligence startup doing amazing things in mostly stealth mode. You are an experienced front–end developer who understands the importance of building a clean, highly functional and addictive SaaS product. We believe in shipping a next-gen product while balancing pragmatism in our architectural and technology choices.

You’ll be a critical member of our early team and will work closely with the founders, engineers and designers. Your work will be very visible. You will have the chance to help shape the future of artificial intelligence, especially geared toward augmenting human decision making around global macro risks. This is a chance to mold the face of a complex predictive machine — you are the kind to grab the bull by the horns.

WHAT YOU NEED

  • Experience with at least one JavaScript framework (Angular/Backbone/Ember)
  • Experience with automated testing (Selenium/Jasmine or similar)
  • Deep understanding of JavaScript (past, present and future).
  • Deep care for pushing sensible enterprise SaaS products.
  • Advanced service integration techniques (Message Queuing, Microservices orchestration).
  • Production experience with monitoring and logging best practices.
  • Production experience with continuous integration and continuous deployment.
  • Bonus: Data visualization tools, especially D3 (or be pumped to learn D3)

YOU'LL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR

  • Working directly with the tech and business teams to define, architect, build, maintain and iterate solutions, including, a powerful SaaS tool
  • Writing quality, maintainable code with extensive test coverage
  • Providing accurate timing estimates on work
  • Collaborating efficiently with product management and technology teams across sites

IS THIS YOU?

Our ideal candidate will love working in an early stage, highly collaborative environment, applying Agile and Lean UX techniques while working with software engineers, designers and physicists to build a completely new software solution. We want someone who is hungry for a big challenge, can carve magic out of ambiguity and willing to go do stuff. Need to love deep tech, passionate about mastering new tools and be open to be amazed by raw power of data (all types, not just the Big one).

Location: Palo Alto or San Francisco, CA (no remote)
Position types: Full-time employees, Contractors, Interns.
