PC - Senior Frontend Engineer

Park City, Utah, United States Full-time

Located In Kimball Junction, Park City - 20 minutes from Salt Lake!

 

Banjo, a leader in Artificial Intelligence, is looking for a senior frontend engineer in our Park City office.  Banjo is changing the way the world understands, processes and reacts to real-time information. We have created the world's first "crystal ball" by giving people the power to see what's happening anywhere in the world, right now, and with that, we have become the most powerful event detection platform in the world. We literally break the news for the news.

Banjo is looking for talented engineers to join our frontend developers who push boundaries and make sophisticated single-page applications. You will think both analytically and creatively to build flexible and high-performance client applications that support a real-time user experience. We are looking for engineers who are focused on performance, scale, and quality in everything they do. We move fast but also put a premium on precision. Our team members have diverse backgrounds but all of us share a passion for solving challenges, and doing it on a small, agile team which means everyone has huge impact.

You will:

  • Work as part of a focused, committed team that values contribution from everyone and expects everyone to bring creative ideas to bear in solving some of the hardest technology problems in the industry.
  • Have an opportunity to work with data and technology seen nowhere else (seriously).
  • Develop, monitor, and maintain services that power the Banjo’s live understanding of what’s happening in the world. This includes systems that bring in real-time data from hundreds of thousands of sources, manage analysis of such data, and manage storage and propagation of that data to downstream products.

Requirements & non-requirements:

  • 5+ years of experience with frontend engineering with proven ability to build and extend customer frameworks
  • Expert knowledge of JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3 as well as experience with HTML Templating, CSS Pre-Processors, Node/Rails/PHP
  • Experience with any of the major Frameworks (React, Angular, Vue, etc.)
  • Eagerness to tackle big problems that have unknown solutions at the outset
  • Natural inclination to demand rigor in everything you build, even while building fast and adapting plans as we grow
  • Inherent curiosity and ability to learn new technologies, plus the ability to figure out the best tools for a given problem. We don’t suffer from ‘Not Invented Here’ syndrome and try hard to use the best tool for the job
  • Focus on using data and objective, empirical methods to understand where we are and how to improve
  • Experience working on small, fast-moving, high capability teams
  • Experience designing and leading important systems software projects, using modern
    languages and technologies. We don’t care as much about any one specific piece of technology expertise as with your ability and experience solving hard problems.
  • Some of the best engineers we know had backgrounds that did not include college degrees in Computer Science or related fields. We care a lot more about how you work and your abilities than your academic background

Send us a CUSTOMIZED cover letter and your resume explaining why you’d be great for the job. We value individuality and variety, so make sure to tell us what you’re all about.
