Senior Front-End Software Engineer

5d - Indeed
Socrata - Portland, OR
We are looking for a remarkable Senior Front-End Software Engineer to join us! We’ve built a team of not just the best engineers, but some really awesome humans as well. This team builds cloud software (platform + apps + ecosystem) to accelerate the flow of government data into the hands of citizens, developers, businesses and researchers.
During the current distributed posture we are in due to the pandemic, we are open to candidates who are located just about anywhere in the U.S., not just Seattle.

This means a few things:
  • We are solving some pretty cool data access problems (ex. how do you extract, host and visualize every taxi ride in NYC so that any resident, anywhere can access it?).
  • What we do matters. New York, Seattle, San Francisco and 300+ other cities, states and counties use us to connect citizens with information that matters to their day to day life.

Front-End Software Engineers here build experiences that the amazing workers within the public sector around the world rely upon to use the data they have in abundance to drive better decisions and serve their communities more effectively.

We want to hear from you if:

  • You have significant HTML, CSS, and JavaScript experience - at least 4 years for our current need for team members with more experience. We are currently using React/ES2016 supported by Redux, jQuery, Lodash, Typescript and Ruby on Rails.

  • You want to build customer-facing experiences that encourage transparency and drive better, more efficient governance.

  • You care about scalable, robust, well-tested code and have experience with testing frameworks like Mocha, Chai, RSpec or similar tools.

  • You want to work in company where everybody believes in a shared mission and has a strong sense of shared responsibility.
  • You provide code reviews to your team members, especially any more junior engineers on the team. You are a strong communicator, both within and outside of engineering, with a willingness to both mentor and teach when appropriate.

We especially want to hear from you if:

  • You are comfortable making technical decisions when there is no clear correct answer.
  • You have a proven track record of shipping great products.
  • You are not afraid to hold yourself accountable and learn from mistakes.
