Senior Front-End Engineer

Jun 13, 2018
Workfront Inc.

As a Front-end Software Engineer at Workfront, you will work with your Engineering team and partner with Product Management to take ideas for Workfront’s products and turn them into realized features in our Work Automation Cloud platform. You will work in an Agile environment and estimate assigned work, create OO and/or functional designs, provide task breakdowns and implement features and micro-services using using ES6+, React, Node, Python, Java, multiple frameworks (Spring, Docker, AWS) and data technologies (NoSQL, RDBMS, Kafka, ElasticSearch).

As a Senior Front-end Software Engineer, you are more than just a coder. In addition to your software engineering responsibilities, you are also expected to guide a small to medium sized team to deliver in a product area by being a planning consultant to the project managers, helping identify dependencies and risks for the group, recommending improvements to our engineering practices and helping other engineers become more proficient in solving specific problems.  You will excel as you identify and apply front-end industry best practices in order to produce a quality, testable, and intuitive user experience with the use of cutting-edge front-end technologies. We expect a passion for front-end development.

A TYPICAL DAY IN YOUR WORLD:
-Meet with your team and tell them the awesome things you did yesterday and what unspeakably incredible things you will complete by this time tomorrow.
-Create new features using our development technologies that will delight and inspire marketers, IT professionals, and other knowledge workers worldwide.
-Create simple engineering designs that solve complex problems.
-Fix occasional bugs in our SaaS platform - when your day was only somewhat less than awesome and unspeakably incredible.
-Debate the optimal design and ideal user experience for a variety of unrealized features identified by our Product friends. Or propose some ideas of your own!
-Help QA and other software engineers find the best way to test your work to ensure that, not only does it work as advertised, but will continue to work and perform at mass scale when thousands upon thousands of people are using it at the same time.
-Lead discussions with your team about what emerging tools, technologies and processes are coming that may impact how we improve our products and our SaaS platform in the future.
-Provide your well-considered opinions to the creation and modification of our technology roadmaps.
-Have a fabulous lunch with people you respect and admire. Enjoy a free soda. Or 10 because, hey, they’re free!
-At the end of a release, as the rest of the company is validating that, in fact, you and your team’s work is indeed awesome and unspeakably incredible, take some time to do some research, train in a new technology or even play a game – em, we mean participate in a team building exercise – with your team.
