What we're looking for
We're looking for an experienced frontend focused engineer to join our team of 5.
We're looking for candidates from diverse backgrounds who are interested in:
  • Developing the core foundation of a realtime collaborative web app using CRDTs and WebSockets
  • Building complex AI workflows into the product
  • Moving fast and shipping to production daily
  • Thinking about frontend performance as a top priority
  • Building sophisticated and performant drag and drop interfaces
  • Debugging thorny and complex bugs without much to go on
  • Reading and suggesting improvements to open source projects that are at the core of the Gamma web application
  • Building out integrations and embedded apps
Above all, we're looking for someone with a passion for JavaScript and creating awesome web apps. We care as much about your attitude and curiosity as your technical knowledge, and less about how long your resume is.
Requirements
Must Have
  • 5+ years experience as a frontend software engineer
  • A strong understanding of:
  • Modern JavaScript / TypeScript and ReactJS (w/hooks)
  • Asynchronous programming in JavaScript (promises, macro/micro tasks and the event loop, async/await, etc...)
  • The browser document object model and React's virtual DOM
  • How mutation observers and event propagation work
  • Experience with the state management in React, preferably with Redux
  • Strong grasp of computer science fundamentals (e.g. you're capable of writing vanilla JS instead of using lodash or jQuery)
  • Experience working in large complex production scale frontend codebases
  • Experience working with mature APIs (REST or GraphQL)
Nice to Have
  • Experience with large language models and AI prompting
  • Experience programming with Typescript
  • Experience with Prisma and Apollo GraphQL
  • Contributions to open source projects (big or small)
  • Experience with websockets and realtime data synchronization
  • Experience with Node, NestJS, or Express
  • Experience with NextJS
