front-end application engineer


We’ve got our eye out for a Developer who is eager to solve problems, collaborate with engineers and designers, and work in a devops-supported, continuous deployment environment. We are looking for candidates who have a deep knowledge of front-end development and a desire to use their skills on a modern microservice stack to support multiple apps and data systems handling over $150mm in transactions. Your core skillset is based on JavaScript, React (or Angular), Redux, Sass (or LESS), Node, Git, and Webpack, as well as testing tools like Karma and Mocha. You’d also want to show off additional knowledge in Mapbox GL JS, REST-centric APIs, data models/schemas (or schema-less), macOS, and AWS.

Billups is looking for a strong Front-end Developer who is a wizard with JavaScript tools of many flavors, loves maps and who is not timid around endpoints and requesting clean contracts between the front and back ends of the system. You’re not satisfied with creating the bare minimum UI – you always have a desire to bring the user’s experience to the next level. You have a self-starting style and an independent ability to deliver, but also a strong desire to collaborate with professionals from many backgrounds. You will be responsible for developing a brand-based application built on a clean framework taken from concise business and technical requirements. You’ll work on a team with seasoned Front-end Developers who will challenge you to do your best work everyday. If you’re looking to solve problems and work on cool projects, come see if Billups is for you!
