We have a great opportunity for an experienced Front End Developer to join the Kinvey team. In this role, you will be responsible for building elegant, robust user interfaces that turn the complex problems of managing an app back end into a beautifully simple experience. You’ll be working alongside a team of experienced developers building new functionality, improving client-side performance, and keeping pace with newly emerging frameworks as well as ever-evolving best practices. If you love solving complex front end problems and want to work on a tool built by developers, for developers, then we want to hear from you!
As a Front End Developer, you must have a deep understanding of the browser environment, a passion for flawless user experiences, and the ability to build complex and maintain complex client-side applications.
At Kinvey, we are building a platform that makes it possible for mobile developers to never have to worry about building and operating a back end. Our customers are engineers like you. They choose our platform because they want to focus on what matters most - the User Experience - and they leave the back end to us.
You love learning
You strive for the flawless user experience
With every page, every form, every widget, you are thinking of the edge cases and failure modes. You understand the difference between perceived performance and objective performance, and you ask the questions like: How would a new user approach this page? What about a power user? How do we test our assumptions?
You think beautiful enterprise software doesn’t have to be a contradiction
You’re excited at the challenge of tackling the complexity of enterprise-level problems, and the chance to prove that enterprise software can be beautifully designed and deeply functional.
You want to make an impact
You want to find a small team where you can have an oversized impact. Where you can do more than just crank through bug fixing, but take charge and spearhead new features, design new solutions, and tangibly impact the customer’s experience and success.
You’re a team player
You are opinionated yet thrive in a collaborative environment; you bring your ideas and an open mind, not your ego, to brainstorming sessions. You take the view of “strong opinions, weakly held”.
You’re a good communicator
Whether it is in email, chat, voice, tickets, code comments, or in person, you communicate well with other people.
We love what we do. You should too!
