Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web. 

We’re looking for a Staff Software Engineer, Frontend to help us build thrilling user experiences with the latest web technologies: Node.js, Mongo, AWS, React, Flux architecture, CSS-in-JS, ES2015+, Mocha, Cypress.io, Jest, and Flow. Webflow empowers hundreds of thousands of people and we need your expertise to make us even better.

About the role 

  • Location: Remote 
  • Full-time

As a Staff Software Engineer, Frontend, you’ll:

  • Lead, architect, and manage feature work for a product engineering team enabling visually developed asynchronous workflows, using Javascript, Node.js, GraphQL, and React.js
  • Write performant and accessible UI components (React) that power visual design experiences and websites (check out CSS Grid, E-commerce, Interactions, and more!)
  • Collaborate with software engineers, product managers, designers and QA analysts in an autonomous, supportive team environment
  • Build and maintain unit and integration tests (Mocha, Jest, Cypress)
  • Mentor other engineers on best practices, code design considerations, and quality

That said, these responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. 

About you 

You’ll thrive as a Staff Software Engineer, Frontend, if you:

  • Have 5-10+ years of experience in scalable, multi-tenant environments that drive rich front-end experiences. 
  • Have 2+ years experience tech leading teams, including helping scope and breakdown work. 
  • Have developed a scalable SaaS product or service that builds customer trust through accessible and reliable user experiences
  • Value testing and documentation as much as you do code
  • Are comfortable with ambiguity and scoping solutions with your teammates
  • Have consistently communicated trade offs throughout a project to meet both technical and business requirements
  • Get excited about encouraging and developing earlier-career engineers

If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements.
