As a frontend engineer, you will be tasked with the development of a highly optimized & resilient, low latency mobile and later web-app experience (FYI: we plan to use React & React Native). We highly value previous expertise in building smooth and pleasant mobile experiences, and we would like you to leverage your expertise and work very closely with the backend engineerings and our designer to optimize the mobile app experience.
Additionally, our application will have a CAD (Computer-Aided Design) component, so any experience in this area will be helpful. 3D game-development experience for example is a big plus.
We are headquartered in Seattle and are building a hub in NYC. We allow for remote work, provided that you are able to spend a week, once a quarter, onsite in Seattle.
