Frontend at Tessian

We’re looking for Frontend Engineers to join our frontend team. We are building an Enterprise dashboard that sits on top of our machine learning platform and allows detailed monitoring, analytics and management. We are well underway in our project to transition to a React first frontend backed by Python APIs.

You should be comfortable with Javascript and a frontend framework. If you're also able to use a little Python to plug our frontend into our backend that's a plus!

Dealing with massive datasets at scale requires ingenuity and strong analytical skills. Our agnostic approach to problem solving means we favour hiring engineers who pride themselves on the ability to learn new skills, their comfort with the unknown and their willingness to experiment.
