A bit about us:

Our client is based in the “Silicon Slopes” of Utah. Their goal is to connect businesses with consumers through state-of-the-art business texting platform.

They work very hard to make text messaging the primary communication tool for any business across the U.S. and Canada. Texting is the way the consumer wants to do business. It’s time for businesses to embrace that trend and stop the constant game of voicemails, phone tag, and making customers wait on hold.

Why join us?

Our client builds React and React Native applications that empower customers to communicate efficiently with their customers via text messaging. Our client's applications talk via JSON APIs to their micro-service backend system. The entire ecosystem runs inside of Docker containers running in Kubernetes on Google Cloud Platform.

Frontend engineers at work closely with UX and Product to build delightful user experiences. Often that takes a level of care and craftsmanship to ensure that we are balancing all of the micro interactions that happen in a modern UI. As such, we expect our frontend engineers to be passionate about user experience and the users they are serving.

As a Principal Frontend Engineer, you will bear primary responsibility for making sure we're making the best technical trade-offs in our product. You will own the roadmap for our frontend technologies as well as the roadmap for paying down our technical debt. We will lean heavily on your technical expertise from the discovery and project planning phases through delivery
