Software Engineer - Front-end
Full-Time / CDI
Every day MadKudu is helping our customers engage their users in the most relevant way, and we're looking for a Front-end Engineer to help us build our applications to deliver this value to our customers. We're looking for a pragmatic generalist, passionate about creating value and building great applications in a fast-paced environment.
What does Engineering look like at MadKudu?
We're a small engineering team today (1 CTO, 1 engineering manager, 2 full-stack engineers, 1 designer, 2 back-end engineers), which means you'll have the opportunity to get to know every one of your colleagues, learn from them and share with them, and learn new things every single day.
We're growing fast, but we're still a human-sized company (20 people) which means you're joining a rocket ship right before liftoff ⚡️
We're working with some amazing customers 🤩 like InVision, Segment, Shopify, helping their marketing & sales teams make better decisions every day.
We need engineers who are passionate about creating value for customers and comfortable solving a problem 80% of the way in 20% of the time. We expect you to be independent and rapidly gain full ownership of the projects you're working on.
We've built our application using Node.js (TypeScript) and AWS services and are constantly improving our stack to match our needs. We're big proponents of technology choices that maximize ownership, flexibility and asynchronous work (continuous delivery, microservices, infrastructure-as-code).
Why are we looking for a front-end engineer?
Even if we're a data company, our goal is to deliver a great self-serve product to our customers, to empower them in their MadKudu usage. To achieve this goal, all the critical parts of the product must be translated into user interfaces, and the user experience must be uniformly excellent (beautiful, rich, and, above all, usable).
The future first real front-end engineer of the team will be in charge of making this vision a reality, with taking the good architectural decisions, fostering a front-end culture, helping the team grow, and delivering the features and screens that our customers are expecting.
Are you a creative front-end engineer looking to work on an exciting application? Then apply today! We can't wait to get to know you!
What will you be doing?
- Design, develop and release new screens and critical features on user-facing applications
- Lead and own front-end architectural decisions impacting the whole company
- Create and foster a front-end culture at MadKudu and help the team grow
- Assist designers in design decisions
Skills and experience
- Professional English proficiency (as we're an American company 🇺🇸)
- 3+ years of experience in front-end engineering
- Passion for creating value for customers and users
- Expertise in JS, ReactJS and web technologies (HTML, CSS, etc.)
- Ability to make and roll out architecture decisions
- Knowledge in UI/UX

- Experience working with startups, particularly in SaaS
