Senior Frontend Engineer, API & Workflows


Job description

We bridge the gap between our platform providing machine learning at scale and our customers' needs.  We give our customers a seamless way to gain insights, make decisions, and navigate the ever-changing world of fraud fighting.  We provide customer-facing automated workflow tools running on highly-available services architecture.  We’re also responsible for providing third-party extensibility points, giving our customers simple ways to use our product within their current workstreams.  Together we provide the platform that makes high-volume streams of data understandable, actionable and usable.

What we’re looking for:

We’re looking for a highly experienced full stack engineer to help drive our product forward, helping to shape our architecture, and sharpen our toolset as we scale up for our enterprise customers.  
Great candidates will bring experience in taking your ideas from concept to customer at scale, with high quality, and on time.  You thrive on high-growth, high-impact opportunities at a growing startup.  You have a clear sense of how you can leverage your strengths and past experience while learning new things.  You excel at distilling simplicity from complexity, and creating order from ambiguity.

What you’ll do:

  • Partner with Engineering Leadership and Product Management to determine the right balance of scope and schedule, as we build industry-leading services that promote digital trust and safety
  • Collaborate with, and help mentor other members of our API & Workflows team as we continue building industry-leading products to promote digital trust and safety
  • Drive the architecture and technical direction of the API & Workflows components - our front-end framework and backend services
  • Lead the way in creating/improving our forward-looking service and platform architecture
  • Evaluate technology that we will use to scale our business and metrics to scale to our next level of enterprise customer
  • Proactively drive improvements to our engineering practices

What would make you a strong fit:

  • 5+ years experience designing/delivering highly-available services
  • Expertise in Javascript, HTML, CSS, and React
  • Experience with RESTful services, API design
  • Familiarity working in Java or Python
  • Familiarity using large-scale NoSQL databases like HBase or BigTable
  • Familiarity with distributed systems and/or highly scalable, customer-facing applications
  • Familiarity with cloud infrastructure (e.g. GCP, AWS)
  • Strong communication & collaboration skills - a team-first, product-first mindset
