Sr. Principal Front-End Developer

CA Technologies provides IT management solutions that help customers manage and secure complex IT environments to support agile business services. Organizations of all sizes leverage CA Technologies software and SaaS solutions to accelerate innovation, transform infrastructure and secure data and identities, from the data center to the cloud.

Help Us Prototype + Build the Future

CA Technologies is looking for a creative Sr. Principal Front-End Developer who enjoys solving problems and developing future-oriented software experiences.

Based in our new Design Center in Santa Clara as part of a design SWAT team, you will be responsible for prototyping UI ideas and future experiences, coming up with new, technology-driven ways for people to interact with products and services. You will have strong front-end development skills and a deep appreciation for beautiful, usable user experiences, having worked on a few yourself.

What You’ll Do

  • Work on ground-breaking design projects, building dynamic and engaging prototypes that look to the future
  • Craft and code elegant, fluid interfaces that strike a balance between beauty and function
  • Collaborate with designers, researchers, product managers, content specialists, and developers to solve complex challenges
  • Champion great product experiences by being an advocate of the user
  • Represent the forefront of new technologies and tools, discovering, sharing, and implementing them on projects

How You’ll Stand Out

The perfect applicants for this role are passionate about coding / prototyping and UX design. Ideally, you:

  • Are insatiably curious; you love to experiment in code and try new things
  • Take pride in the details and quality of what you deliver
  • Understand what a good product is and how they get built
  • Are creatively oriented and driven, with a keen desire to ship world-class work
  • Can show evidence of the above through examples, side projects, or ideas that haven’t seen the light of day
  • Bonus: you’re up to speed on AI, VR, AR, dabble in Arduino or Little Bits, perhaps attend Maker Faire

Key skills

  • 10+ years of experience
  • Strong UX prototyping skills; expert proficiency with HTML5, React and/or Angular, JS, CSS, and / or tools such as Principle, Swift, Pixate, Origami, Form
  • Advanced understanding of motion + animation as it applies to UI / UX (transitions, reveals, interactive elements, etc)
  • Good sense of modern product design – can tell the difference between something that works and something that rocks
  • Strong communication + presentation skills; can clearly articulate ideas and decisions to multiple stakeholders
  • Excellent collaboration ability, able to work across different disciplines

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you. Given the nature of the role, a presentation of work and projects will be a key part of the interview process.
