Senior Product Engineer

San Francisco, California
Full time
The role - Help tens of millions of frontline workers excel

We're looking for frontend product engineers who relish the subtle interaction details that make products delightful, the hard technical challenges involved in making powerful web / native apps, writing highly reusable code, and thinking about how to build better systems of abstraction. Product intuition is as much a necessity as technical knowledge or familiarity with best practices of front-end engineering. Our frontend apps are developed from a unified React / React Native, so an ability to write clean, clear code which will run across many platforms is paramount.

What you'll do

    • Spec and build user interfaces that are beautiful, consistent, fast, that thrive under varying use cases and that earn the trust of our customers through predictable, reliable, and thoughtful interactions.
    • Invent patterns and abstractions that our team can use to develop world-class product experiences for our user-base.
    • Work with React, React Native, GraphQL and HTML/CSS to build and maintain new Myagi features. You will also have the opportunity to work on our Django / Python backend if that interests you.

Who you are

    • You have deep experience with modern frontend JavaScript frameworks and tooling — React / React Native expertise is a bonus, but we believe the best frontend engineers can learn these technologies if needed.
    • You have strong product and design sensibilities and enjoy perfecting the details that matter.
    • You take a thoughtful approach to decision making; knowing when to move fast and when to do things right.
    • You want to work in a product-driven environment.
    • You are excited about mentoring and collaborating with ambitious team members.
    • We are not focused on where you got your education or minimum years of experience.

What it's like to be an engineer at Myagi

Engineers at Myagi are typically generalists with one or more key specialties. Working at a fast growing company means our  engineers get to work across the entire stack and to be responsible for critical projects - thus, we value people who are excited by the idea of having a large impact on the future of our business and user-base every single day. We also value people who enjoy working autonomously, cross-functionally and who are always looking to develop skills in areas which interest them.

Because of this, our team consists of people who are excited about finding elegant solutions to difficult technical challenges in-order to deliver exceptional user experiences. Recent and upcoming challenges include: Building a powerful frontline messaging app to rival the likes of Slack and Whats-app, shifting to fully immutable infrastructure deployment using Docker and AWS, developing an automated network growth engine to connect companies in our network and building an innovative on-device video download system to conserve bandwidth for enterprise customers.

Finally, a large part of our focus as an engineering team is on self-development and mentor-ship. Partly, we encourage this through our weekly rotating lightning talks and reading groups. But more fundamentally, we make it a core responsibility of every team member to do what they can to help the rest of the team improve. Aptitude for this responsibility is something we are especially focused on when hiring.
