Folsom Labs is a small, agile, profitable startup where you will make an immediate impact while shaping our product and culture for the future. We are located in the heart of San Francisco, providing competitive salary, full benefits, and flexible schedules. We believe that a sustainable culture is rooted in fairness and respect. We listen openly and lift each other up every day to create a workplace where diverse voices thrive. By empowering people, we can power the planet. Join us to build a clean energy future!
We are looking for an experienced front-end engineering specialist to help us scale our team. The latest version of our application is built on React with Typescript and a Python backend, but familiarity with the specifics of our tech stack is just a bonus. We value
commitment to continuous improvement, and inclusive, empathetic technical leadership. Our product's technical surface is broad; the user experience is elegant and powerful. Under your guidance, we will extend its capabilities while continuing to delight our users and inspire our engineers.
Skills for this Role:
- Proven track record of delivering robust, web based products.
- A keen eye for elegant, robust patterns in front-end code and user experience
- Deep experience building, and creating web based architectures. This role will primarily be concerned with the front-end, but there will be plenty of opportunities to dive into the backend as well.
- Excited about a small team environment
- Commitment to quality craftsmanship as well as shipping
- Excellent communication skills
- Comfortable with autonomy and ambiguity that comes with small, fast moving startups
If you're curious about the nitty gritty of our tech: we run our web servers on Heroku and our heavyweight workloads are run on autoscaled EC2 instance groups. Our various backend machines communicate via celery task queues and a Redis temporary store. We store data both in PostgreSQL and on S3. Our frontend is a fairly standard React + Redux app. There are other parts of our tech stack that are less conventional, including parts running WINE, CUDA, and WebGL on the frontend, but we compartmentalize intelligently.
We are not wedded to any one language or framework or dogmatic philosophy. We strive to adapt and learn quickly, and to appreciate all the factors that go into even seemingly simple engineering decisions. We endeavor to build performant and robust systems. We value innate curiosity and diversity. Our culture is built upon the twin cornerstones of transparency and everyone rising together. Most importantly, we treat others with kindness and empathy. Join us in facing the challenge of our generation--building a clean energy future.
