Why is a Senior Frontend Engineer important to us? 

Shapeways is looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to join our technology team. Our ideal candidate is a great collaborator with the technical skills to design and build complex projects despite roadblocks, grabbing others for help or insight as necessary.  The candidate should also have a wide breadth of knowledge in frontend technologies (i.e. frameworks, accessibility, build tools, etc.) that enable them to debug those systems effectively without flailing. Lastly, they must understand the business that their code supports and work to identify risks (in code, features, and design) and communicate them to the appropriate parties.  So, if you’re up for the challenge of helping us transform the 3D printing industry, then this role is for you!

As a Senior Frontend Engineer you will:

  • Design and develop user interfaces to support our Product team

  • Create and maintain reusable JavaScript and CSS components

  • Partner with business stakeholders to deliver features on time and to specifications

  • Collaborate with other engineers to refine our best practices and processes

  • Be comfortable working with, and helping to modernize, a legacy codebase

  • Participate in code reviews and write automated tests

You might be a good fit if you (have, possess, are):

  • 8+ years of experience writing native JavaScript (ES5/ES6)

  • Solid understanding of HTML5 and CSS3 (SASS)

  • Working knowledge of a JS framework like VueJS, React, Ember, etc.

  • Prior experience implementing style guides and/or design systems

  • Experience with an A/B testing solution like Google Optimize or Optimizely X

  • Ability to prioritize work in order to meet deadlines

  • Good understanding of Linux/UNIX systems

  • Good communication, analytical, and problem-solving skills

Nice-to-haves:

  • Familiarity with MVC frameworks (we use PHP)

  • Knowledge using/configuring Webpack/Gulp (or even WebpackEncore)

  • Familiarity in building/setting-up/deploying a JS package

  • Working knowledge of Node and isomorphic web applications

An Insider's view of Shapeways

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Shapeways cares about its employee's work/life balance by supporting flexible working hours, parental leave, and a genuine attitude of camaraderie and working together. I am thankful for the friendly environment and truly feel that our leadership team cares about the staff and how they're doing, both professionally and personally.

Leon Tsivin

Director, Product Management

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Every 3D model uploaded to Shapeways is unique: it's intended purpose, it's geometry, it's the owner. Whereas other industries may be able to take a 'one-size-fits-all customers' approach to solving problems, we are often faced with the challenge of making a solution work for a near infinite amount of possibilities.

Carolyn Dempsey

Director, Product Management

What does career growth look like on your team?

We introduced an Engineering Career Ladder to our team; we outlined all of our available roles and their respective responsibilities. That document, along with a related individualized Career Development Plan, serves as the basis for directing our engineers' career growth. Still, it's up to each engineer to drive their own career growth forward.

Reginald Mullin

Director, Engineering

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We strive to create a culture that empowers our team at all levels. We have an ambitious vision for the company, a clear strategy on how we can accomplish that, and goals that connect everyone to the same purpose. This starts by building and developing the team, communicating, being transparent, and celebrating our successes and failures.

Greg Kress

CEO

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I am surrounded by intelligent and fun people, and many of whom have become more than colleagues. The projects are often challenging, and I am continuously learning and growing every day. Our new HQ in Flatiron is great; open floor plan and very bright which allows us to be more collaborative with other teams.

Principal Software Engineer
