Senior Frontend Engineer


Formidable is a boutique engineering consultancy and open source software organization, specializing in React, React Native, GraphQL, Node, and the architecture of large-scale JavaScript applications. We are a team of consultants working together to find holistic and sustainable solutions to challenging problems for our clients. We build products for some of the world’s biggest companies while helping their internal teams develop the skillset to create and maintain thoughtful and scalable systems.

You will work with other Formidable engineers using a modern JavaScript stack to implement new applications, features, and tools for companies ranging in size from startups to Fortune 100s. You will regularly collaborate with client teams to provide project leadership, mentorship, and technical expertise. When you’re not working on client projects, you’ll have a chance to contribute to our community-leading open-source software.

We make sure our employees get opportunities to grow within Formidable and participate in daily decision-making processes. Our engineers are leaders in the community and frequently speak at key conferences. Working with other Formidables, you are guaranteed to continually cultivate your skill set by staying atop of industry trends and tools.

This is a full-time position which will start out as a work-from-home role initially. Once we are able to safety return to in-person working offices we will work to provide a nearby regional office for you to access, though working from the office has never been mandatory. (Sorry, no relocation assistance is available.)

If you’re interested in joining a collaborative community that supports employees and understands the importance of maintaining a work-life balance, we would love to talk to you!
