We are looking for Senior Front-end Software Engineers to build out the next generation of the Rokt user experience. You might join the Rokt Platform team building the suite of web apps in Angular 6 & Typescript that enable our internal teams and our clients to create, manage and report on their Rokt campaigns and integrations, or the Presentation Engine team working in React & Typescript on our front-line client-side integrations that render on our partners’ sites and handle enormous scale.
As a Senior Engineer at Rokt, you will:
- design systems for the long-term with simplicity and maintainability in mind,
- be customer-obsessed with a commitment to high quality and robustness,
- take a proactive approach to problem detection and resolution,
- be a custodian of your team’s codebase - shaping, moulding and evolving it towards our ambitious goals,
- participate in code reviews, providing and receiving constructive feedback,
- take responsibility for system health,
- manage risks and security proactively,
- enjoy the ride while learning new things!
Your team (like most teams at Rokt) will consist of 4-5 engineers. Our team structure is flat; we actively encourage participation from the all team members in the entire engineering process. No egos. We communicate clearly, honestly and respectfully with each other. You will often mentor less experienced members of your team, contribute to design workshops, write lightweight but effective documentation and take an active part in all aspects of our Agile SCRUM process.
At Rokt, we’re big on Agile development, Microservices, Serverless (sometimes), infrastructure as code, and as much automation as possible. We actively encourage innovation and love new and interesting tech, but never because it’s shiny, but rather because it helps us solve problems.
We adopt industry best practice and place a heavy emphasis on strong interface contracts between our services which talk JSON or Protobuf. To help us achieve our goals we also harness various modern tools including Bitbucket, Jira, Confluence, Bamboo, Splunk and a variety of automation frameworks.
