Sr React / Frontend Engineer

Website Whitespectre

Whitespectre is a product-centric, Rails-led technology consultancy for both VC funded start-ups and large, established companies across the US and Europe. We’re also a product incubator with our own applications and B2B SaaS platform. As long-term partners to our clients, we’ve played a critical role in their growth – both through the products we co-create and the expertise and processes we bring. Proudly remote first since 2013, we’re a close-knit team of 75, working in fast-moving, cross-functional agile pods to solve interesting technical challenges and drive real business impact.

 

What’s it like to be a Frontend Engineer at Whitespectre?
Our front-end developers have the ability to make beautiful user experiences come to life. They can partner with UI/UX and are able to think like product owners- being able to advocate for code quality as a long term strategic investment while knowing when to adapt a more start-up mentality to deliver rapid business value. They can go full-stack when needed to make the frontend functional, but their passion is to stay up to date with the latest visual and Javascript techniques / trends. And, of course, share with and learn from the collective Whitespectre rails brain trust.
Whitespectre operates on a fully-modern tech stack- toolset includes ReactJS, Typescript, Webpack, REST/GraphQL, Rails, Postgres, Elastic, CI/CD with Docker, Heroku/AWS, etc. Working smartly is important to us; automation, dynamic environments spin up with new feature branches and slack bot integrations control our production releases.
The majority of our projects involve building greenfield applications and our delivery teams typically own products end to end – your thinking and contribution make a big impact!

To have a “product” mindset – that you’ll enjoy the challenge of collaborating with UI/UX Designers and Product Managers to advocate for technology solutions while bearing in mind the tradeoffs for business results
