About the Role:

Inscopix is building a next-generation platform for organizing, analyzing, and sharing neuroscience research data and we are seeking a Senior Frontend Engineer to join our small-but-growing data product development team.  As the usage and applications of our technology have grown, so has the need for products to enable managing, organizing, and applying analysis pipelines of neuroscience data at a large scale.  

You will not only be working with a group of knowledgeable and humble developers, but also data engineers that architect cutting-edge algorithms and neuroscientists that design and use the tools to analyze data in collaborations with academia and industry. You’ll be solving highly unique UI/UX challenges with an emphasis on usability, discoverability, and extensibility.

The platform's frontend is a React application written in TypeScript that communicates with our backend through GraphQL (with assistance from Apollo Client) and REST APIs. We test with Jest, React Testing Library, and Cypress. Our backend tech stack consists of Django/Python, Postgres, and Postgraphile. We run our services in Kubernetes on AWS. While your role will focus on the frontend side of things, we are a close-knit development team and like to keep each other in the loop with what we’re doing across the stack. We have a lot of curiosity and willingness to learn on the team and help each other grow.  We’re looking for someone that shares our enthusiasm for our collaborative team style and is open to offering their perspective and expanding their expertise.

If you have a passion for writing performant, maintainable, and reusable code, enjoy implementing intuitive, user-focused experiences, and are excited by the prospect of working within a small multidisciplinary team that ranges from computational neuroscientists to site reliability engineers, we’d love to talk to you! 

What you will be doing:

  • Collaborating within a talented cross-functional team to push the envelope on what’s possible in neuroscience research, creating novel and innovative solutions to problems of managing, visualizing, and analyzing multimodal scientific data
  • Contributing to the development of our new cloud-based platform, transforming proposed interfaces and requirements into functional interfaces and solutions in a React-based frontend application
  • Taking ownership of complex projects and assisting in the scoping and planning of roadmap features
  • Building UI components in a reusable and maintainable fashion, with integration and end-to-end test coverage
  • Actively sharing your knowledge and experience with the rest of the team, as well as learning from others through deep dives and collaborations
  • Maintaining high standards of code quality by relentlessly advocating for best practices, participating in the team’s review process, and helping drive our recurring quality-focused sprints

What we’re looking for:

  • Senior level experience (~5 years) building modern frontend applications in JavaScript with at least 3 years of that experience using React and TypeScript
  • Interest and experience coaching, mentoring and leading others. 
  • Exposure to modern testing frameworks
  • Exposure to GraphQL
  • Good knowledge about software design patterns and architecture
  • Focus on UX for both beauty and functionality in products that you design
  • Understanding of Agile development best practice
  • Passion for learning and expanding your expertise
  • Good communication and enthusiastic about sharing knowledge and experience
  • Currently based in Canada is highly desired. We'll also consider candidates based near our HQ office in Mountain View.

Bonus points if you have:

  • Experience with Apollo Client
  • Experience with Python/Django
  • Experience with data visualization
  • Experience with implementing real-time (e.g. websockets, polling, etc.) web apps
  • Maintainer of open-source projects or packages

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
