Sr Frontend Engineer

As an engineering team, we believe good code is easy to read and understand. We love automation, code reviews, and continuous integration. We seek out engineers who are not only hard-skilled software pros, but also thinkers and tinkerers, who find creative solutions for complex problems, and challenge the status quo. At Starship, we’re constantly iterating and improving our products to provide our members with the best experience possible.

As a frontend engineer, you are motivated to combine the art of design with the art of programming. You will be including translation of the UI/UX design wireframes to actual code that will produce visual elements of the application. You will work with the UI/UX designer and bridge the gap between graphical design and technical implementation, taking an active role on both sides and defining how the application looks as well as how it works.

What you’ll be doing

• Being amazing and working with other amazing humans.
• Develop new user-facing features
• Build reusable code and libraries for future use
• Ensure the technical feasibility of UI/UX designs
• Optimize application for maximum speed and scalability
• Thoughtful communication through code and design reviews
• Strive to build great experiences, and putting users ahead of technology

What you will need to be successful

• Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience
• Ability to dive into complex systems and understand how they work
• Deep understanding of React and React Native
• Full stack experience is a plus
• Experience in building both web and app products
• iOS and Android experience is a plus
• Motion experience is a plus
• You work with a sense of empathy for others, both end users and your fellow engineers
• Willing and excited to work in a fast-paced startup environment.
• Prior experience working in high security environments—e.g., payments, healthcare—is a plus
• A strong moral compass and commitment to Starship’s core values of inclusion, empowerment, and trust.
• A strict no-bros policy.
