Senior Software Engineer - Frontend

3+ months agoÅrhus, Denmark

The Team

Building, deploying and running microservices at massive scale are our team's finest tasks. We build a platform that empowers engineers to seamlessly deploy their services to 1000s of hosts, distributed across our own data centers and cloud zones in AWS and GCP, while balancing capacity, debugging failures and managing networking at ease.
Our mission is to build a best-in-class cloud platform for Uber engineers to manage their microservices. Reliability and usability is essential when Uber engineers globally rely on our platform to run Uber, so we're looking to expand our team with a collaborative and pragmatic engineer, who knows the value of great user experience.

What you'll do

We believe that achieving our mission requires a modern tech stack, so we use the latest React for our frontend and our backend is written in Go. We take pride in writing clean code with high unit and integration test coverage. For unit testing we're using Jest and RTL and our integration tests are written using Playwright. All our changes are peer-reviewed to ensure robustness and spread knowledge amongst us.
Soon after joining, you will:

• Design, implement and ship reliable and well tested features to our users
• Help defining the future of the platform, both technically and product-wise
• By interacting with users and understanding relevant data, you scope the next big problem to solve
• Coach and develop your team members and help them grow
Engineers on our team have a direct impact on the way our system looks and feels. We favour a data-driven approach to product development, leveraging web analytics and metrics to inform our decisions. We also talk directly with our users to ensure their needs are met so they can stay productive and happy while running Uber's business.

Your background

Our team consists of engineers with a broad range of experiences across the industry. We value ideas over hierarchy, getting things done, and having a measurable impact on the business. As an engineer in this role, you should have a profile similar to the following:

• 5+ years of experience with frontend or full stack development
• A degree in computer science / engineering (or equivalent practical experience)
• Excellent coding and software design abilities
• An eye for product design and a desire to provide great user experiences
• Experience with React and Typescript, or similar technologies
• Ability to drive complex projects from idea to launch and beyond
