An overview of this role

Our Engineering Productivity (EP) team is looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to drive our frontend dependency management, specifically making it more efficient and automate where we can.

The team is globally distributed and very collaborative, so there's a lot of asynchronous communication. 

The EP team has a large and unique opportunity to enable our teams to be more productive, which has an outsized impact on the product and customer results. This can be in the form of efficiency improvements, reducing toil, or even completely replacing an existing system to give orders of magnitude improvements.

  • Strong experience working with Javascript
  • Strong experience working on Vue.js or React
  • Demonstrated experience working on Webpack/Vite
  • Experience actively contributing to architecture/solution design as the Frontend subject matter expert
  • Ideally have experience working in an EP team (or similar)
