Web Frontend Developer (React)

Files.com - US
Full-time
Posted: 7 months ago

Location: Work From Your Home on a Remote-First Team at a Hybrid Remote Company (USA only)

Are you an expert at React, Redux, Webpack, browser APIs, ES8, and the rest of today's modern frontend stack? Do you want to work on a web application used by hundreds of thousands of users?

If so, we'd like you to learn about Files.com!

At Files.com, we've invested heavily in the React/Redux platform and are looking to expand our growing team of frontend developers. As a frontend developer at Files.com, you will work on all of our client-facing web applications that are primarily written in Javascript targeting a web browser.

Additionally, you will work on our Android and iOS mobile apps which use React Native.

World Class Pay and Benefits

Earn a "Bay Area" Salary from Anywhere In The USA. Our pay is competitive with the top software companies in the world, with generous base salary plus equity compensation.

Big Company Benefits: You'll get full Health/Dental/Vision Insurance coverage (plus 75% of Spouse/Family coverage too), 401(k) with generous matching, 11 Company Holidays per year, and 20 PTO/Vacation days.

Brand New Laptop and $1,000: Upon signing, we'll send you a brand new Apple laptop as well as $1,000 to outfit the rest of your home office with things like a monitor, webcam, keyboard, and mouse.

Tight-Knit Fun-Loving Team: You will be joining a fun-loving team that works together very closely, despite the remote work environment.

100% Remote Opportunity

The Files.com Frontend Engineering team is 100% remote. However, we travel for regular in-person meetings with the team and the entire company to meet and work together face to face. These meetings are in cities around the US, including Scottsdale, Austin, Orlando, New Orleans, San Diego, Las Vegas, and New York City.

In-person events combine work and fun and are designed to make up for the in-person interaction that occurs in an office job.

We are very excited that COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted and we have fully resumed company travel.

About The Role

Our frontend developers are responsible for all client-side code that runs in browsers and mobile apps here at Files.com. We use state-of-the-art tooling, such as React 16, Redux, Redux-Saga, and React Native on the mobile side.

We obsess about testing, code reviews, and keeping production code size low.

Files.com currently has many features that are available in its API that are not available in its frontend UIs, so a considerable part of this job will be building out new features and releasing them to customers as soon as they're ready.

Here are some example projects that our Frontend Developers have worked on recently or will work on soon:

  • Rebuilding our internal CRM dashboard in React.
  • Building a browser-based file uploader that works in all browsers, supports resume, and is able to automatically detect the closest server for uploading.
  • Building notification panes that show "push notifications" to our users about updates to their files or workflows.
  • Enhancing our security by adding several new Two-Factor Authentication methods, such as U2F, SMS, and Yubikey.

Ready To Up-Level Your Career?

We would like you to write a cover letter telling us why this opportunity speaks to you. Please specifically cover the following things in your letter:

What is the largest application you have personally worked on where your code is currently in production? How many users interact with it, and can you share any other information about the scale at which it operates?

What is the largest contribution you have made to open source software and are there any repositories that you maintain personally?

On a Scale of 1 to 10, please rate your knowledge of JavaScript for front-end web development, including a knowledge of the community of libraries, frameworks, etc.
