Hi everyone!

We are looking for a Senior Front-End (React) Engineer, that will help develop UI/UX for the new web app.

More info in the form of Q&A below.

What do we do?

The Company is a localization and translation management platform for agile teams. We are the fastest-growing language-tech B2B SaaS.

The Company was included in the top 100 European cloud tech companies under $1b by Accel.

Why do we do it?

Our goal is to eliminate the hassle of localization by providing tools to automate, integrate, and better manage your translations. We are a better way for growth-minded businesses to expand their mobile apps, games, software or digital content into multiple languages.

How are we (as a company/project) different from others?

Our culture is all about transparency, removing bureaucratic obstacles, and quality. We try to move as fast as we can (we are in the hyper-growth phase) but not losing quality.

How do we do it? (what technologies we use, etc.)?

Our core business logic will be kept in PHP, but services that are new and being built in our platform are already built with Golang, Python, Node.Js, React (Typescript), etc.

  • Understanding of latest ECMAScript specifications
  • Good knowledge of GIT

Would be a big plus:

  • Knowledge of PHP
  • Experience working with Symfony

What would I have to do?

  • Deliver world-class user experience and user interface while executing understandable, maintainable and well-tested code
  • UI/UX improvement and refactoring of existing web app
  • Seek a clear understanding of technical requirements through interpreting user stories and UX documents
  • Work closely with Product, UX/UI, and the Engineering team to execute business deliverables
  • Remediate bugs throughout the development process
  • Cover own code with unit tests
  • Generate technical and support procedure documentation
  • Gain in-depth product knowledge and become familiar with the software localization process over the globe

Why is there a vacant position?

Growth and development of the project.

What are the growth/development opportunities in this position?

What is the size and structure of the team? How many testers/developers are there in the team?

We are building cross-functional teams. Each team consists of: backend engineers, frontend engineers, product owners. QAs are in a separate team, but in the future, they will be incorporated into teams. We have a separate “Platform” team where DevOps, Cloud Engineers, and SRE helps us to scale and grow our solution.
