Senior Frontend Software Engineer
Our Frontend team builds the extensible platform on which other teams can develop applications, ensures high quality architecture across the engineering organization, and defines the UX of Namely alongside Product and Design partners.
As a Senior Frontend Engineer, you will join an innovative, forward-thinking team responsible for:
- Developing clean, accessible, and modern web applications
- Building core libraries and components as part of our Design System
- Utilizing technologies like GraphQL, React Context and Hooks and Typescript
- Continuously improving our tech stack
- Ensuring personal and team career growth through high quality code reviews, cross-functional collaboration, and strong teamwork
We don’t believe years of professional work is the only measure of experience. We want to work with and learn from developers with diverse backgrounds who are passionate about what they do and are excited to dive into a challenging, high impact role.
Some traits we look for when considering candidates are:
- Enthusiasm for establishing and promoting best practices to ensure our code is readable, reliable, and testable
- Writing code that others use to write more code (e.g. open source or internal libraries)
- An interest in ensuring that applications are valuable and accessible to all users
- A knack for finding a balance between new technology and scalable, high quality solutions
- Being opinionated, yet open minded
- Investment and interest in the Frontend community and ecosystem. Even if you haven’t used the latest tech, you are up to date on happenings in the community and are excited to try out new technologies at Namely.
We understand the importance of being excited about the technology you work with, so we’ve included our stack below. You don’t have to be fluent or even well versed in all of it, but we want engineers who are excited to dive in and understand these tools and technologies:
- Framework: React
