Remote Jobs

Senior Frontend Engineer

We, at Octopods (https://octopods.io), are a small, sharp-focused and deliberate team. We built Octopods to connect businesses using live chat software (like Intercom) to the most popular messaging channels out there (like WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook, etc). We started small, and we want to keep staying small, bootstrapped, and very profitable. But we do dream big, and we have plenty of big plans. We want to tackle our next set of exciting challenges in the next years to come and this is where YOU come in the picture, we want your help for us to do so.

About the role,

We are looking to hire a Senior Frontend Engineer to join our small distributed team around different parts of Ireland, Canada and other spots around the world. Ideally, we are looking for a frontend generalist, someone who can wear many hats, someone who is pragmatic, and most importantly, who thinks from first principles (https://fs.blog/2018/04/first-principles). We work remotely, and so this is a 100% remote role. You can choose to work anywhere you'd like having at least 6 hours overlapping with GMT+0.

  • Building or choosing a UI Kit and wrap it up with framework components.

  • Collaborating tightly with our Product Designer to solve complex design problems, empathetically.

  • And a few more equally exciting and challenging projects!

  • You worked with Javascript, and would probably put an argument choosing Typescript over it.

  • You worked extensively with Vue.js or React.js in the last 4 years & above.

  • You worked & architected data flow patterns with a front-end app.

  • You worked with WebSockets, and/or realtime web technologies.

  • You worked & grokked with Webpack and can set up reliable build pipelines.

  • You have solid HTML5 + CSS3 foundations.

  • You worked on a SaaS product before, and you understand the Laws of UX well.

  • You did some work with Ruby. The more exposed you are to it, the merrier.

  • You write your code with empathy for your fellow Engineers, and for future readers.

  • You have are self-driven, and can self-manage.

  • You can write and communicate in English succinctly. You wrote technical plans before, we do write a lot.

  • You love to take on complex problems, and you don't shy away from fixing issues.

  • You have some remote experience, and you understand its challenges.

  • You can take, and give feedback openly.

  • You are kind, and there is ≥5% a chance we will see you smile. :)

  • You like to work in a small team, and have direct ownership of your work.

  • You think of technology, not as an ideology but rather as means to push value into the world.

Your engineering skills are as important as your entrepreneurial skills to us. We value frontend generalists who can take a problem from its most ambiguous state and deliver its end value to solve a real world problem for our customers.

About pay & benefits,

  • A salary up to 4,000$ per month or up to 48,000$ yearly (USD).

  • 1 full-month yearly bonus subject to yearly performance.

  • Reimbursing your monthly internet bill.

  • A new laptop and equipment that you will need.

Front-end Engineer

Glowforge is a beautiful device that sits on your desk. It uses a laser to carve and engrave products from raw materials like wood, leather, acrylic – even cardboard. If you haven’t already, check out our video on glowforge.com. While you’re there, you’ll notice something amazing: Glowforge is the largest crowdfunding campaign in history.

There is an incredible demand for what we're creating. It's not a geeky tool for the tech elite or a garage workshop; we're crafting an iconic product that is going to change the way people think about creativity. Our customers include consumers, digital designers, crafters, engineers, teachers, artists, and more. It's already the biggest crowdfunding campaign in history, and now that it's available at retail, the fun is really starting.

This is a full-time role in Seattle, and we are happy to help new employees relocate to this beautiful city.

Why We Need You

One of the unusual things about the Glowforge architecture is that we moved many of the hard engineering problems from hardware to software. Our cloud service does the heavy lifting for features like alignment and autofocus, making what was once a tedious and error-prone process delightful and simple to use. It also makes it dead easy to diagram, draw, or doodle your invention and print it directly to wood, acrylic, fabric, leather, or paper.

Our team is composed of software generalists and we expect you to be one too, but we particularly want your passion and thoughtfulness around front-end web development. While you’ll do lots of things here, you’ll be asked to tackle some of our most challenging UX innovations for the web, and will spread your knowledge and experience through an organization that is eager to learn. We are pushing the envelope on web-based interaction models for fabrication devices, and we need your help to make this the best possible user experience for our customers.

While this role is written for someone with a four-year degree and several years of industry experience, if you’re great at what you do and excited about what we do, we want to talk to you — whether you’re brand new to the industry or you’ve been a veteran architect for decades.

Here’s what you’ll be doing

This is a full-time role in Seattle, and we are happy to help new employees relocate to this beautiful city.

  • First and foremost, any task that helps us create an amazing product for our customers — which will include stretching your coding skills in new directions and pitching in when your colleagues need help.

  • Collaborating daily with designers, including our head of product, in-house UI designers, and our customers (many of whom are designers themselves).

  • Creating novel and intuitive user experiences that enable Glowforge’s amazing capabilities with minimal training.

  • Iterating tirelessly on those designs based on user feedback and not being afraid to kill your darlings.

  • Massaging the latest web technologies into a buttery-smooth implementation of our product vision.

  • Participating in planning sessions with the whole product team and helping build the user stories, requirements, and specifications that will drive development.

  • Building the software to fabricate the future – not just another CRUD app.

You need these qualifications

  • You write copious amounts of thoughtful, high-quality code.

  • You’ve been responsible for shipping a product that people love.

  • You’re excited about being personally responsible for making Glowforge successful, and you’re comfortable navigating ambiguity that arises in a startup environment, adjusting to changing priorities, and moving confidently even when guidance is limited.

  • You’re thoughtful about human-computer interfaces, responsive design, and applying software engineering principles to front-end implementations.

  • You have deep proficiency in HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript, and know the strengths and limitations of all three.

  • You’re passionate about writing great software… and still know that you sometimes have to make some tradeoffs to ship quickly.

It would be nice if…

  • You’re experienced with mobile technologies, responsive design, browser compatibilities, and how best to mix web and native implementations.

  • You have 2D graphics and animation experience, either with SVG or Canvas.

  • You have 3D graphics and animation experience, like three.js or webGL.

  • You can wield jQuery effortlessly, and know when it’s best not to use it.

  • You’ve worked with libraries like React/Flux, Backbone, or Angular for structuring UI implementations

  • You’re comfortable with Rails, Python, and Node (we have multiple technologies powering our web services).

Please send us your resume, plus something so we can get a sense of your work. For example, we’d love to see your Github repository and links to sites you’ve built.

There's one more, very important thing. We are an equal opportunity employer. We search for amazing people of diverse backgrounds, experiences, abilities, and perspectives. We take care of each other to create an inclusive work environment where we love to come to work every day. We'd be happy to provide reasonable accommodations to help you apply - just email us at jobs@glowforge.com.We hope you can join us.
