Senior Frontend Engineer


Chronosphere, a platform for the future

Chronosphere is an early stage startup building an innovative observability platform for cloud native applications. Chronosphere enables customers to develop and operate reliable cloud native applications: with the ability to quickly identify problems and their causes; simply, affordably and at scale.

The Chronosphere platform is built on the open source M3 metrics platform and Jaeger distributed tracing platform- both developed at Uber Technologies, and proven in production at petabyte scale. The Chronosphere observability platform integrates both technologies into a single seamless solution, allowing users to jump straight from issue detection to root cause in a single click. The platform is delivered as a SaaS service that is easy to adopt and scale with customer needs.

About the role

You will be a key early hire in our frontend engineering team. You will pair your natural design instincts with a strong foundation in Javascript to build an intuitive, user-friendly experience that engineers, data scientists, and business analysts leverage every day. Our customers rely on the Chronosphere platform to visualize and manage the complex metrics that underlie their business, and you will be creating the interface that is critical to their success.

You will

  • Join a team of senior frontend engineers and work together on the critical path of projects.
  • Build rich and intuitive interfaces using Javascript and Reacts.
  • Use GraphQL and other strongly typed APIs to communicate with back-end services.
  • Partner with product leaders and designers to design amazing customer experiences.

What you will achieve 

In the first month, you will build a deep understanding of Chronosphere’s business and platform and begin contributing to the product. You will have time to learn about the space, our customer’s needs, and the underlying technology.

Within 90 days, you will have shipped customer facing features and contributed to designs that shape the direction of the product. You will become a go-to person for front-end development, acting as the domain expert on technology choices, and generally owning the engineering side of our user experience.

You have

  • Strong Javascript / Typescript skills and familiarity with modern Javascript frameworks such as React. You will be setting the standards for how we do front-end development, and we will be building around your strengths in this area
  • Experience leading complex frontend products targeting technical customers, with exposure to infrastructure systems and data visualization frameworks such as d3 or visjs. Our platform targets analytical customers working with complex datasets, and a background with similar types of products is important to understanding their needs
  • An excellent sense for good experience and visual design. You’ll be working closely with the product and design team, and will be key to shaping our user experience
  • A flexible, collaborative working style. We’re a small team working in a rapidly evolving space, and we’re looking for people that will help build a positive, supportive environment
