What are our engineers working on?

As a frontend engineer, what are the primary focuses or challenges the teams are facing and what technology am I working with?

We run cross collaboration teams, so here is a snapshot from three of our frontend teams working in different areas.

Team 1: Our primary goal this year is to mature our micro-frontend infrastructure. We're building a component library on top of a shiny new design system. Storybook is the foundation for our FE design system. We're playing some of our BFF (BE For FE) with GraphQL. We're paying extra attention to performance and stability, and building observability and automation with DataDog and Cypress. We rely heavily on React and have little to no FE legacy codebase.

Team 2: We'll be looking to improve our UX across the Platform, and continue adding value to the platform by exchanging manual work we've been doing for our customers with platform functionality.

Team 3: We're expanding and improving our home-brewed RTS software so it can provide help desk functionality as well as specialized IT-related UX.

How do we hire?

Because we understand the value of your time, we keep our hiring process simple. Our focus is on understanding how you think and collaborate, as well as how your past experience might contribute to the future success of our team. A typical hiring process takes about three weeks.

We start with a 30 minute HR phone screen to understand your background and interests, and answer your questions. From there, we move on to a technical phone screen, followed by a 4-hour on-site where you’ll get to know the team, and collaborate on some software design and coding problems. Expect to spend some time at a whiteboard, but no need to cram on algorithms and data structures beforehand.

Hiring Timeline
  • 3 Weeks.
  • 1 HR Phone Screen (30 Min)
  • 1 Technical Phone Screen (30 Min)
  • 1 Onsite Session (3-4 Hours)
