The Team:

Our mission is to help our customers feel confident with their money, and that starts with our engineers being confident in the software we build. Everything we write is designed for simplicity and maintainability. We take security very seriously.

We're a team who strongly believes in a culture of learning, and we're looking for engineers who share that view, and are as excited about writing code and trying out new technologies as they are about sharing their experiences and mentoring others.

You'll work most closely with your fellow engineers, across multiple domains (Backend, Android, iOS, DevOps, etc) along with Product and Design to create the next generation of Simple.

About You:

You're an experienced engineer who loves to ship high-quality software, and one who does so by supporting the team around you. You've worked collaboratively in team environments where there are multiple features in flight.

You're able to mediate technical discussions, establish consensus on a team and drive adoption of best practices when things aren't working as well as they should. To you, code review is an opportunity to collaborate, learn, and mentor.

In your code, your focus is on quality, safety, stability, and correctness, while making reasonable trade-offs. Testing is a key part of your workflow, and you're always looking for ways to improve our confidence in software that we give to our customers. Most importantly, you're an engineer who is continuously learning and improving your craft.

What You'll Do All Day:

As a Frontend Engineer at Simple, you'll primarily build customer-facing applications on the web platform, while also contributing to internal tooling. Most of our applications are built primarily in JavaScript, React, Redux, HTML and CSS; some may also have a server-side piece written in Ruby or Node.js.

Frontend engineers also support production applications in an on-call capacity, and write tests for their code. Additionally, some Frontend engineers may be called on to work in a full-stack capacity, including building out APIs (RESTful or using GraphQL) and interacting with data using PostgreSQL.

A typical day could look like:

Participating in practices & improving team processes

Contributing well tested and documented code as part of the feature development process

Up-leveling the more junior members of the team, via mentorship, documentation, and the PR process

Participating in and potentially leading organizational improvements

We'd Like To See:

5-7 years of strong development experience using JavaScript, React, HTML/CSS

Preferable experience in Webpack, Typescript, Functional Programming (JVM-language preferred), PostgreSQL

Experience building RESTful API's

Strong communication skills, with an emphasis on empathy

Passion & experience mentoring junior engineers

Experience writing consistent, readable, testable, developer-friendly code.
