100% Remote Opportunity

The Files.com Frontend Engineering team is 100% remote. However, we travel for regular in-person meetings with the team and the entire company to meet and work together face to face. These meetings are in cities around the US, including Scottsdale, Austin, Orlando, New Orleans, San Diego, Las Vegas, and New York City.

In-person events combine work and fun and are designed to make up for the in-person interaction that occurs in an office job.

We are very excited that COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted and we have fully resumed company travel. πŸŽ‰

About The Role

Our frontend developers are responsible for all client-side code that runs in browsers and mobile apps here at Files.com. We use state-of-the-art tooling, such as React 16, Redux, Redux-Saga, and React Native on the mobile side.

We obsess about testing, code reviews, and keeping production code size low.

Files.com currently has many features that are available in its API that are not available in its frontend UIs, so a considerable part of this job will be building out new features and releasing them to customers as soon as they're ready.

Here are some example projects that our Frontend Developers have worked on recently or will work on soon:

  • Rebuilding our internal CRM dashboard in React.

  • Building a browser-based file uploader that works in all browsers, supports resume, and is able to automatically detect the closest server for uploading.

  • Building notification panes that show "push notifications" to our users about updates to their files or workflows.

  • Enhancing our security by adding several new Two-Factor Authentication methods, such as U2F, SMS, and Yubikey.

Ready To Up-Level Your Career?

We would like you to write a cover letter telling us why this opportunity speaks to you. Please specifically cover the following things in your letter:

  • What is the largest application you have personally worked on where your code is currently in production? How many users interact with it, and can you share any other information about the scale at which it operates?

  • What is the largest contribution you have made to open source software and are there any repositories that you maintain personally?

  • On a Scale of 1 to 10, please rate your knowledge of JavaScript for front-end web development, including a knowledge of the community of libraries, frameworks, etc.
