  • Own sections of front-end development and work alongside other engineers on web applications (front-end experience with React.js and Node.js preferred, though we welcome anyone with interest in learning new tech stacks)

  • Writing clean, testable, scalable, efficient, and well-documented code in an agile environment (TypeScript, etc.)

  • Contributing to product roadmapping alongside the founding team and prioritizing features according to customer needs

  • Participating in architectural reviews to ensure proper balance of short-term and long-term trade-offs

  • Taking on an entrepreneurial mentality to independently identify and pursue opportunities for the organization

  • You have made contributions to full-stack engineering projects, preferably having started from scratch and worked through all phases of product development, from planning and design to execution and release

  • You are highly self-directed and resourceful, with experience working on collaborative teams and translating technical language and concepts to non-technical people

  • You have the ability to design and implement automated testing to ensure the production of robust code (Jest, Karma, Jasmine, Mocha, Lighthouse, etc.)

  • You value design and would enjoy building a web application that has the complexity of enterprise software combined with the user experience of best-in-class consumer products

  • You exhibit a willingness to test, learn, and iterate by validating new features and quickly moving on if they don't work

  • You have a general knowledge of most, and advanced knowledge of some, common web front-end technologies (HTML, CSS and preprocessors), module bundlers and front-end testing frameworks.

? Bonus points

  • You have experience or interest in chemistry, AI, enterprise SaaS, or an end market in which we operate (e.g., beauty)
