Job Description

Whitespectre is a product development company that creates high-performing platforms and apps, both for our long-term client partners and our own products. Founded in 2013, we partner with both large established companies and high-growth start-ups in the US and Europe. We're a close-knit team of 70 smart and diverse people, working together remotely and meeting in person in Barcelona!

We are looking for an experienced Frontend / React Engineer to join one of our key delivery teams on a full-time, long-term basis. In this role, you’ll work within a cross-functional squad of backend and front-end engineers, product, & UI/UX designers to solve interesting technical challenges and create products that drive real business growth at scale.

As a senior member of the team, you'll help to drive architecture and implementation decisions, help product make smart trade-offs to deliver a great user experience in a scalable way, and mentor other engineers.

What will you do?

  • Building complex Javascript (mainly ES6, webpack, React, Typescript) presentation layers to consume RESTful (and sometimes GraphQL) APIs in a performant way.
  • Collaborating with backend engineers in designing logical flow, specifying api contracts and implementing services to decouple functionality
  • Occasionally going full stack and, depending on the project, either diving into the node.js service or the Rails services to add a new endpoint or modify behavior (and we can help you learn here too)
  • Identifying bottlenecks, using tools to diagnose and refactor code for scale
  • Ensuring the robustness, performance and failure characteristics of the system.
  • Writing well tested, defect-free code with CI/CD
  • Taking ownership of production applications - managing issues, releases and ensuring quality

Requirements

  • 2+ years of production experience of React frontends
  • 4+ years of software engineering experience, preferably in modern JS frameworks e.g. React/Vue/Angular/Backbone.
  • Experience using Agile Methodologies in a remote team
  • Excellent communication skills (both verbal and written)
  • Availability to work full-time within a fast-moving cross-functional team, crossing over with 11 am - 7 pm Central European Time

Benefits

  • Interesting challenges: We’ve done everything from scaling high-performance backends, building beautiful (but complex) user interfaces to apps with low-level bluetooth communication with hardware devices.
  • Competitive rates: This is a contract position with a long-term outlook.
  • 100% Remote: We've been proudly and successfully remote-first for 7+ years
  • Impact: Our delivery teams are fast-moving, highly collaborative, and own products end to end - your thinking and contribution make a big impact!
  • Great environment: We provide a great working atmosphere where you can share and learn with other smart people.
  • Career progression: We want you to grow with us and provide the opportunities, knowledge sharing and mentorship to do that.
  • Work-life balance: love your work, but know that it doesn’t take over your life.
  • Paid Meetups: Come meet with your colleagues in Barcelona or at a local meetup.

You must live outside of the US. Please no recruitment agencies.
