Job Description

We are looking for a Frontend Architect / Senior Engineer to join Hasura’s console team. The Hasura console is the most critical user-facing component for developers and teams using Hasura and is like an IDE for Hasura. The Hasura console is a large and complex codebase and as a frontend architect your responsibilities will also include improving the developer experience for developers so that they can build features easily and move faster.

As a team, we try to keep learning from each other in a collaborative environment and are extremely passionate about engineering. We’re open to bringing in new technologies, tools and patterns to make our engineering experience continuously better.

We’d love to hear from you if:

  • ExpandYou are an experienced front-end engineer who can build amazing user experiences. You are able to lead projects, engage stakeholders, and empower other engineers in order to achieve goals.
  • ExpandYou have experience building performant, reusable, and extendable components using React and associated tooling (webpack, different ways of handling CSS etc.)
  • ExpandYou have a thirst for evolving client-side architectures and modern web technology stacks.
  • ExpandYou take delight in shipping amazing products and being obsessive about the little things around user experience.
  • ExpandYou have some production experience with functional, typed languages/tools for frontend development (even side projects are good!).
  • ExpandStrong communication skills in person, on paper and in code.
  • ExpandExperience and comfort working in a collaborative environment like Slack, Github etc.
  • ExpandYou love to make an impact and thrive in small, collaborative, energetic teams.
  • ExpandStrong software engineering fundamentals: A Bachelors in CS or equivalent experience

Bonus points for:
