Full-Time
At Tradeshift, we are changing the way companies do business together. You will have the opportunity to make a difference as we strive to connect all of the companies in the world and make business applications better for people. Of course, this will not be easy; you will face a lot of complex challenges in our growing, global, fast-paced startup.

We believe in team-based component ownership, development and quality assurance. We expect engineer involvement in all user stories from their inception through deployment and monitoring. Our teams have great autonomy and responsibility to choose the best solutions, technologies and approaches to bringing Tradeshift to the next level.

About you
You will be responsible for contributing to the technical design, development and implementation of the Tradeshift app platform. We believe in shipping code, and we have just enough process in place for everyone to remain productive. But we expect you to do more than just write production code; in a typical week, you could be:

• Brainstorming technical architecture options on a whiteboard with your team
• Reviewing PRs from developers in our European offices
• Fielding questions from product managers about new features
• Fixing a bug you randomly came across and improving unit test coverage
• Giving a presentation to developers in our San Francisco office about a new technology you have been experimenting with

What you'll be doing
We’re looking for an outstanding Senior Frontend Engineer with the skills and courage to challenge, extend and improve our products. We expect you to be immersed and energized by new trends, frameworks and technologies, and have the ability to evaluate the longer-term value and quality of new developments. You should be able to:

• Strike a balance between shipping soon and finding a perfect solution, and understand the tradeoffs in a situation
• Develop and maintain a world-class responsive frontend framework, and engage in discussions about making both incremental and drastic changes
• Build beautiful, robust, cross-device compatible UI, and ensure there is sufficient coverage with automated tests
• Bridge the gap between intended user experience and practical implementation, and communicate the options clearly and concisely to designers and product managers
• Lead a team in taking a product from concept to release, and assume responsibility for the success of the product and the growth of your team
