Staff Software Engineer - Frontend (EU)

Remote (Europe) /
Engineering – Frontend /
Full-time
Here at Pex, we have built the largest audio-visual search engine in the world allowing creators, musicians and rightsholders to understand the usage of their content and help them to earn more money while exposing their content to wider audiences.

We are building on this legacy of digital content identification and management to develop a market-making product we call the Attribution Engine. The Attribution Engine is a three-sided marketplace bringing rightsholders, platforms, and creators together to simplify the existing licensing process by making ownership information more transparent and readily available; bringing scale and consistency to the licensing process; and ensuring that copyright disputes are resolved quickly and cost-effectively. We believe that the successful launch of this product will position Pex to become the Visa of Digital Rights.

As the Lead Frontend Engineer, you will drive the technical vision and decision making and play a key role in setting the long-term direction of Pex’s frontend team. We value simple solutions to solve complex problems, so we’re looking for someone who isn’t afraid to implement new frameworks and libraries that can help simplify our code and enhance user experience. Our scale is massive, spanning tens of thousands of servers and trillions of rows of data so scalability and maintainability must always be top of mind.

We’re looking for an accomplished and pragmatic frontend engineer who will lead our frontend vision and its implementation across the engineering organization. Our engineering organization is made up of fully remote and cross-functional teams that have talented engineers from various backgrounds and skill levels.

The Role:

In this role, you will architect the front-end of our new product and lead the development and evolution of efficient processes. As an influential leader across development teams, you will also work closely with the product design team, collaborate with Engineering Managers and the recruitment team to grow our engineering organization, and play an active role in helping grow and mentor junior engineers. 

The ideal candidate has experience building products from the ground up in an innovative, fast-paced environment. If you have the desire to shape the future of how a growing team operates and have the domain knowledge, communication skills, diplomacy, and humility to lead, then this role is for you.

You:

We have a lot of people who did not follow the traditional career path. We value people who are curious and collaborative and bring their unique perspectives to work each day. While we’re excited to learn what you can bring to the team, there are a few key things you’ll need that are essential to success in this role:

• Deep understanding of JavaScript
• Experience working with leadership to set long term architectural strategy with the ability and desire to execute
• Comprehensive knowledge of at least one Javascript library and framework
• Experience writing large, scalable, and performant JavaScript applications
• Experience making and owning large scale technical decisions that impact the long term direction of a product
• Ability to communicate and work effectively in a fully remote and distributed team

• Equity, with perks like a 10-year exercise window
• Generous paid parental leave
• Day off on your birthday
• 30 days of paid time off + 9 paid holidays
