About us:

Parabola is the spreadsheet alternative where you combine the data running throughout your company and create automated processes.

Pull in data from any source you can imagine—from scattered spreadsheets and tools, to emails and PDFs—and build logic that replicates the manual work you do every day. Use our canvas to combine and transform your data, and surface the results to the right people at the right time so you can do more with the data you rely on. In the process, you’ll codify the steps for every workflow you manage so they become repeatable, shareable, and usable for the whole team.

Create solutions for the problems you’ve always wanted to solve, and make your work more shareable and impactful along the way.

Parabola is proud to serve companies like Flexport, Sonos, Uber Freight, Brooklinen, and Chubbies and is backed by OpenView Partners, Matrix Partners, Thrive Capital and more.

About the role:

As a frontend focused Senior Software Engineer on our growing team, you’ll be technical leader as you design and build our drag-and-drop canvas, reinforce and evolve our technical foundation, and work with our unique stack to build a flow-based calculation engine.

You’ll have the opportunity to architect key frontend features including an intuitive canvas for building user’s flows, a robust and customizable data-visualizations platform, and a highly performant surface for understanding current flow calculation state. You’ll be a key decision maker in how we structure our frontend as we scale our tool to be both highly performant and delightfully intuitive.

We’re open to both frontend specialized full-stack engineers or true frontend engineers for this opening!

What you'll be doing:

  • Building a best in class drag-and-drop canvas for constructing data transformation “flows”.
  • Architecting our frontend to be fast, intuitive, and delightful.
  • Designing and expanding our Redux store, writing React code in a mature TypeScript codebase.
  • Partnering with product managers and designers to define, plan, and build new product functionality from start to finish.

  • Collaborating with a small-but-mighty group of engineers with a wide array of backgrounds and areas of expertise.
  • Implementing the logic behind the steps that make up Parabola flows.
  • Helping our team define processes and practices that will serve us for years of growth and success.

What (we think) you'll need to do it:

  • 4+ years of previous experience as a full-stack or frontend developer (this will be a frontend focused role).
  • Expertise in developing with React/Redux and Javascript/Typescript.
  • Experience architecting and organizing highly performant frontend-heavy applications.
  • You’re not afraid to ask for help, and you’re happy to give it, too.
  • You care about the craft of engineering, and you’re dedicated to making sure your work is visually polished, highly performant, and user-friendly.
  • You’re an enthusiastic communicator and you like working with a team that provides both mutual support and thoughtful critique.
  • You're excited to join a hybrid team and work out of our NYC or SF office ~3 days a week.

Nice to haves:

  • Experience working in dynamic high-growth organizations
  • Experience building visualizations or canvas based products.
  • Rich interests and can bring a unique perspective to our team
  • Interest or experience in working with AI systems in a thoughtful way.
  • Experience writing Python, Typescript, or Node.js in a professional setting.
