Remote Developer Jobs

JavaScript Engineer

Posted: 2 years ago

Remote work is one of the great equalisers of our time, allowing people to secure employment opportunities from companies around the world, no matter where they were born or where they live.

Yet, at a time when remote work is exploding, most companies are finding it too complex, costly and time consuming to employ workers internationally. At Omnipresent, we’re centralising this complexity and providing our clients, and their remote workers, with a simplified, cost effective and legally compliant employment experience. With a network of legal entities across the world, coupled with an automation-focused tech platform, we’re building the premier global employment-as-a-service offering on the market.

Omnipresent is looking for experienced JavaScript engineers to help bring our customer and internal facing OmniPlatform to life. We are solving an incredibly complex problem and need the customer interface to be beautiful and usable. This involves building both a highly performant frontend application and a mesh of backend services which abstract the complex country specific elements and surface the required data to the frontend. We are looking for full stack, frontend and backend engineers, so whatever your preference we likely have a role for you.

Your role

You would be joining a small team of Senior engineers, who work cross-functionally with Product and Design to build the OmniPlatform and support our customers' needs. We write our tests first, and know that delivering quickly requires excellent tooling and ongoing attention to the health of the codebase

Feature development, technical improvements and tooling are all first class citizens when we prioritize. Our engineers have an active voice in planning work, make smart trade-offs between short and long term value, and can demonstrate how the work they want to do will benefit our customers later.

What will you be doing?

  • Work in our React/Redux/NodeJS/Typescript codebase to develop features, APIs and build a maintainable product
  • Collaborate with product managers, design, and other internal stakeholders to ensure we are building a product that solves our customer needs
  • Contribute to our tooling and automation
  • Work asynchronously with a distributed team, so you will be creating durable written artifacts of your work

You might be a good fit if:

  • You have a minimum of five years of experience as a professional software engineer, at least 2 of which are with modern JavaScript
  • You have recent professional experience with Node and/or a modern JavaScript front-end framework (we use React)
  • You are comfortable communicating through the written word in an asynchronous and highly autonomous environment
  • You work in timezones between GMT-8 and GMT+5

We would consider it a bonus if:

  • You have experience working with AWS (or another public cloud) and provisioning architecture components using Terraform or equivalent
  • You have professional experience with TDD
  • You understand DevOps practices and the thinking behind them
  • You have a solid grounding in UX/UI best practices
  • You have experience with React and Redux

What else is in it for you?
