At Fraction, we're redefining the way small and medium sized businesses use technology to help their businesses succeed. Our flagship product is a 5-minute setup tool for creating, distributing, and accepting digital offers that require no customer apps, no emails, and no POS integrations.

We are looking for someone to help us create simple, beautiful, data driven applications that our SMB customers view as an integral, yet delightful, part of running their business. At Fraction, we appreciate and value the delicate balance of building simple, yet powerful, user interfaces and experiences: the myriad of tiny decisions that go into crafting a smooth, effortless interface for the user.

We're looking for someone who enjoys the process of creating intuitive user interfaces: designing, prototyping, testing with real users, collecting data, and then iterating on the experience.

As the first dedicated frontend engineer on our team, you will have the opportunity to grow into a leadership role in this area while wearing many hats and learning our engineering system. This role is perfect for someone who wants to not only have a significant impact on our customers' experiences but define those experiences.

The kinds of problems you’ll work on include:
- Creating engaging user interfaces with intuitive interactions
- Developing efficient and reusable front-end components
- Analyzing and improving application usability

When applying, please tell us about some of the real world applications that you’ve built.

- Strong knowledge of JavaScript, HTML, CSS and the tooling associated with modern development in this area
- Demonstrated knowledge of good design principles
- Successfully taken designs from concept to production
- Experience with modern JavaScript libraries such as Vue and Webpack
- Strong Computer Science fundamentals
- 3+ years of software development
- Awareness of cross-browser compatibility issues and client-side performance considerations
- Authorized to work in the United States
- Design experience

Here are some of the reasons we love working on the Fraction engineering team:
- We encounter a wide range of problems everyday: there are a number of high-impact problems across a range of fields, from security to UI/UX, and as you grow into this role, you can define the projects and areas that you want to work on.
- Difficulty of problems: Building reliable, secure, and scalable mobile wallet infrastructure from scratch is hard, especially as a small team.
- Strong software engineering principles: We put a lot of thought into the way we architect our systems and use specification-driven coding principles to generate our systems.
