Our main website, documentation website and blog are all very important to us, and we have a dedicated team building these. The Web Engineering Team collaborates very closely with the Design, Marketing & Documentation Team to provide the highest quality web experience for new and existing customers.

The tech stack for this team has changed a lot over the last few years (and will change a lot in the future too), but Gatsby is the core web framework that powers most things. The Web Engineering Team leverages a CMS platform so that most of the content on our public web properties are editable by members of our Marketing Team. This CMS needs to scale to hundreds of pages and thousands of resources.

Required Skills and Experience

  • Professional experience working with the modern web development toolchain including: React and frameworks such as Next.js or GatsbyJS, CSS 3, modern JavaScript (TypeScript experience would be a plus).
  • Experience working with headless CMSs such as Contentful, Contentstack, Builder.io, Sanity, Prismic or Netlify CMS.
  • Search engine optimization, web accessibility, web performance, cross-browser compatibility.
  • UI testing with tools such as Cypress.
  • Working with REST and GraphQL APIs.
  • Attention to detail. Providing a top notch web experience requires a strong design mindset.

What you can expect from this role

In the first 3 months:

  • Onboard into the public website and documentation website codebases, add small features, fix some small bugs.
  • Get to know your teammates, learn about the team's roadmap and stakeholders.
  • Dive deep into GatsbyJS and slowly become an expert in it.

In the first year:

  • Have become fully comfortable with most of the codebase.
  • Start working on some developer experience improvements such as upgrading package dependencies or accelerating build times.
  • Start speccing and scoping larger projects with the rest of the team and own longer end-to-end projects across Marketing, Design and Engineering.

  • We tackle hard problems every day, from databases, to infrastructure, to enterprise usability; there’s opportunities for growth everywhere in the company.
