ABOUT RETOOL: 

At Retool, we’re changing the way software is built. We’ve developed the fastest way to build internal tools, saving companies time, resources, and engineering bandwidth. Whether it’s refunding orders, underwriting loans, managing marketplaces, rolling out new features, analyzing transactions, or providing customer support, Retool makes it dramatically faster and easier to build internal tools that teams need. We believe that the future of software development lies in being a force multiplier for developers and technical builders, helping them move considerably faster building a lot more software.  We’re looking for highly collaborative people as we build a world-class team to support this mission and we’d love for you to join us!

WHY WE'RE LOOKING FOR YOU:
 
Retool is both an interface used to build internal tools and the runtime for those apps. It's used simultaneously by technically-demanding engineers and productivity-focused end users. As you can imagine, it's critical that we build a performant, usable, and powerful front end.

As a front-end engineer at Retool, you’ll be building a platform that thousands of customers rely on to run their operations.

We have a small but mighty engineering team. We’ve done a lot with a little, but there’s much more work to be done to continue our fast-paced growth, we need to hire a world-class engineering team. You’ll help us get there by owning end-to-end projects, talking with customers, and ultimately supporting the growth of Retool (both the product and the business). 

WHAT YOU'LL DO:

Front-end engineers at Retool collaborate closely with our design team to craft a product that delights our users. You will help extend the core functionality of our application editor, which requires both attention to detail and an understanding of performance implications. To keep Retool blazingly fast we may end up experimenting with Core React functionality, Web Workers and WebAssembly.

New features often start off as customer ideas. You’ll take those ideas and scope, build, test, document and ship them to production . Outside of customer feedback, you’ll also weigh in on our product roadmap which is set collaboratively by design and engineering.

You’ll be working primarily in React and Typescript with a Node.js backend.

WHO YOU'LL WORK WITH:

At Retool, we work cross-functionally with designers, customer engineers, and support engineers, as well as the marketing and sales teams. Engineers make a lot of product decisions and you’ll partner frequently with designers as you scope and build your projects. Everyone on our design team is comfortable both in Figma as well as code.

We're a hard-working, passionate bunch who are motivated by collaboration, strong results, and bringing the impact of Retool to our customers. When we’re in the office, we enjoy eating lunch (and occasionally dinner!) together, and swapping stories. But at the root of it all, we come together to show our customers and not-quite-yet customers how Retool can make them and their companies more efficient and successful.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you! 

THE SKILLSET YOU'll BRING:

  • 5+ years experience in professional front-end development, ideally some of which you’ve spent in startups
  • Significant experience working with Javascript/Typescript and React
  • Previous experience working closely with designers, building flexible, composable libraries and components
  • You sweat the important details and are passionate about maintainable, scalable CSS
  • Experience owning technically challenging and demanding cross-functional projects
  • A record of identifying valuable projects, communicating the strategy for them, and executing on them autonomously
  • A customer-first mindset and an interest in talking with customers to make sure what we’re building is a polished product meets their needs
  • Habit of introspection and understanding what’s helped you be successful in the past
  • Bonus points if you have experience in mentoring other team members

Retool offers generous benefits to all employees. For more information, please visit the benefits and perks section of our careers page!

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.

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.
