Senior Front-End Software Engineer

The Critical Stack team lives at the intersection of the network, development, and security worlds. We are industry veterans who have been instrumental in defending dozens of global firms as employees, consultants, developers, and mentors.

You should have a strong knowledge of CSS and Javascript frameworks for implementing and extending the core components in our product.

  • Strong knowledge of Javascript with experience designing products on modern Javascript frameworks like React.
  • Strong knowledge of HTML and CSS.
  • Strong development practices in an rapidly-shipping, Agile team (writing tests, maintaining clean and readable code, and writing supporting documentation) in a professional capacity or within an open source community.
  • Experience with an open source architecture and programming on Linux.
  • Demonstrated ability to thoughtfully evaluate & choose technologies in designing features and communicate these decisions up and down.
  • Good organizational skills and production estimation skills (ability to accurately break down and scope work from user stories in JIRA).


  • Own and participate in product and engineering design and decisions in a small, nimble team.
  • Build on a modern open source stack using modern development practices - learn about new technologies such as Kubernetes and incorporate them into a world-class product.

Basic Qualifications:

  • High School Diploma, GED, Equivalent Certification or Military Service
  • At least 5 years of experience with product design, delivery, ownership
  • At least 5 years' experience in building web application back-end server side scripting
