Senior Front End Engineer at AlphaSights (Remote)
[Disclaimer: We are currently focused on building a strong team of remote engineers based in Brazil to partner with our US and UK based teams. As a team that focuses heavily on collaboration and learning, please be aware of English language requirements (interview process, work communications, etc. will be conducted in English)]
At AlphaSights, we search through more than 500 million professionals working in the world today to find the small handful of experts qualified to answer our clients needs. They use these insights to drive amazing progress within their organizations. Our mission is to provide access to dispersed, hidden, and underutilized knowledge.
We’ve made terrific progress working in this new space, but there is still an incredible amount of work to do. We’ve only just scratched the surface on how we can apply technology to this problem.
AlphaSights' Engineers build features across our ecosystem of products and services, both internal and client facing. As a Fullstack engineer you will remove pain-points, optimize workflows, and enhance the intelligence and capabilities of our systems. You'll work closely with a variety of people in the business to arrive at the best solution, immediately see the impact of your work, and get feedback directly from users.
We're looking for people who are interested in building software systems to an incredibly high standard, comfortable working across multiple languages, and learn quickly when new technologies are introduced.
We care more about your engineering skill versus your deep knowledge of a particular language or framework.
