About the role:

The most successful companies understand that data and analysis are the foundation of any effective business strategy. Modern enterprises live and breathe data that they leverage through all sorts of dedicated analytics platforms: customer, product, supply chain, finance, etc. But until now, there’s never been an effective software solution to understand, measure, and optimize companies’ most important asset: their brand.

Survata is a venture-funded startup building the Brand Intelligence Platform. We offer a comprehensive set of tools that help our Fortune 100 clients understand and improve how they’re perceived in the marketplace, how aware consumers are of the value they provide, and how much consumers trust them to provide the value they promise.

Survata has already built an excellent backend system for gathering and statistically analyzing data on consumer sentiment. To fully unlock the power of our system, Survata now needs to build out a suite of interactive, visually compelling, self-serve analytical tools to help marketers ask and answer sophisticated strategic questions (and visually communicate their results to internal stakeholders).

Our front-end team is small but growing rapidly, and we need a Sr. Front-end Engineer like you who can provide strong technical leadership to our ongoing effort to build React/Redux-based interfaces that satisfy complex, data-intensive client needs while remaining simple to use, efficient to build, and easy to extend and maintain.

This is an opportunity to have a pivotal impact on the development of a modern, professional-grade set of tools for data visualization and advanced statistical analysis. These tools will be used daily by some of the largest companies in the world to directly guide how they invest hundreds of millions of dollars of marketing budget (with that amount growing more than 100% year-over-year).

What we're looking for

  • You have experience with developing powerful, intuitive, highly-functional user interfaces for professional end users. You understand the benefits (and drawbacks) of the single page app, and you’ve built robust, high-quality SPAs before.

  • You deeply understand and enjoy programming. You’re familiar with the modern JavaScript landscape, and you know which frameworks to use and when (and when not to use a framework at all).

  • You value and practice rigorous engineering methodology. You believe that well-structured code, comprehensive testing, and solid engineering methodology are a must.

  • You’re comfortable working together with backend teams and you have strong opinions about what makes a good API. You’ll not only help guide our API development but you’ll also be a customer of it, so you’ll help keep our entire architecture effective and lean.

  • You like solving real-world business problems. Our clients use our data to make their businesses more effective, and you’ll use your skills to turn theoretical ideas into concrete tools and improvements that will help Survata satisfy our clients. You should enjoy collaborating with Product on specs and designs that solve real needs and will delight end users.

  • You’re humble. You understand that you’ll be responsible for making sure we end up with great systems by making sure the best ideas win, even if those ideas aren’t yours.

  • You’re curious. You care about understanding the world around you and want to learn more about why it works the way it does.

  • You’re the type who fixes problems instead of worrying about who’s responsible for fixing them. You own and take responsibility for your actions and your work and you want to stake out a meaningful area of expertise within the constant swirl and change of startup life.

  • You believe that well-oiled, high-trust teams are more effective than the sum of their parts. You know that participating effectively in a team takes deliberate effort and compassionate, effective, and non-violent communication. Survata works hard to foster a welcoming, inclusive climate where people feel safe and supported and actually want to work with each other. You’re comfortable being evaluated for what you add to the team, not just what you add to the codebase.

Bonus points:

  • At least some experience building tools to visualize and explore large, dense datasets.

  • Experience working with React/Redux.

  • Experience at a startup or fast-growing company.

  • Experience with marketing technology, advertising technology, or market research companies.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
