We are looking for a Frontend Engineer to join team Editors, the team responsible for building out our video and image template editors. For some more context as to what they build out, check out this blog post or the official support article.

As part of team Editors, you will be responsible for a flagship part of Smartly's product offering, and will have a massive impact on the company's ambitions for the future. Our customers rely on our creative production tooling to generate tens of millions of advertising creatives, and your future team will be placed in the center of all of this effort.

We are quite agnostic about technology and always aim to choose the best tools for the job. Our editor canvas is built using React/Redux with TypeScript. We manage a public API for other internal services that consume our creative templates. Our service runs on NodeJS orchestrated by Kubernetes. We also integrate with some BI tools (Snowflake, Redash, Google) for analysis of our creatives used across social advertising platforms. We use Webpack and Github Actions for our build and deployment pipeline.

We will be focusing heavily on bringing new innovations to the editor, all the while reacting to customer demand and feedback. Our templating solutions are in heavy use: during peak times, we've rendered 16 billion (16 000 000 000) images on hundreds of servers monthly.
