(Senior) Frontend Engineer (MetaMask) | 108k USD | Remote (Canada only)

## Introduction

Hi! Thanks for your interest in joining the Kyokan-MetaMask team. We lead extension engineering for MetaMask: the leading platform for empowering users and builders via the decentralized web and ethereum blockchain. The power of the MetaMask extension reaches beyond blockchains, with potential to be a cross browser enabler of communication between web-apps, localized crytpographic storage and signing for apps, extensibility via secure running of third party javascript and sharing of functionality between apps.

We therefore pursue this project with the hope and convinction that it will:
- unlock opportunities for millions to have more control and creativity with respect to how they raise, share, transfer, coordinate and distribute wealth
- empower more users and developers to make the web a space and tool that is defined by collaboration, consent, privacy, security, synergy and freedom

We are looking to hire our next teammate, someone who will share our passion for bringing these possibilites to life through leadership of front-end feature development with javascript.

## For the role of Frontend Engineer, we are looking for someone who will:

- be an effective contributor to [MetaMask's free and open source software](github.com/MetaMask/metamask-extension) from day 1
- lead the development of front end features
- facilitate growth of open source community contributions to MetaMask
- improve MetaMask through effective review of pull requests, triaging and analysis of github issues, auditing and refactoring the codebase and improving our tests

- proactively contribute to team discussions about UX design, technical issues, sprint and roadmap planning and improving team processes
- be proficient and thoughtful with asynchronous and synchronous communication, giving and receiving feedback, working independently and with a team
- support their teammates performance and growth
- be successful working within a fully remote environment
- bring respect, patience and empathy to every interaction and relationship with coworkers and the community
- bring hustle, enthusiasm, heart and a love of shipping code and fixing bugs to their work

## Successful candidates will have:

- deep and diverse javsacript experience
- ability to plan technical work and take ownership of feature development from start to finish
- significant experience shipping and maintaining production code for a large user base
- proficiency with frontend frameworks (React, Vue, Angular, etc.)
- a history of contributing to open source software or a desire to start doing so
- leadership experience

## Perks and policies

- this position is remote and open to people based in Canada, with a preference for someone in Eastern, Atlantic or NL time zones
- flexible hours
- unlimited paid-time off
- we like to meet up in person a few times a year
- we are a self-governing team that makes budgeting, strategy and structure/process decisions collectively
- we have a [Code of Conduct](github.com/kyokan/metamask-team-handbook/blob/master/CodeOfConduct.md) that we take seriously

These outcomes would be pursued through both technical solutions and improvements to engineering processes.
