Company Description

We’re building the most powerful, scalable, and reliable system for managing business data in the cloud, ever. We’re also building intuitive, engaging tools that help people understand their data in a meaningful way. Birst engineers work in small, independent, cross-functional agile teams that are empowered to do big things. No Chinese walls here. Come and make a big impact across the board.

 

Job Description

We’re looking for a Front-End Engineer to join our team at Birst. Your primary role will be to develop standards and best practices for our client-side technologies, from desktop browsers to mobile devices.

 

You will:

  • Work closely with our product design team to build beautiful UIs that are rich and user-friendly
  • Develop a Birst UI framework on top of open source technologies
  • Build efficient, reusable front end abstractions - in essence own the front end architecture
  • Identify and address performance bottlenecks

 

Qualifications

You:

  • Eat, live and breathe HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • Have read and internalized the “JavaScript: The Good Parts”
  • Are experienced with the latest Javascript frameworks (Backbone, Angular, EXT, etc.) and have an opinion on what each brings to the table
  • Are hooked on using CSS Preprocessors (SASS, LESS, etc.) and can’t imagine going to back to vanilla CSS
  • Aren't intimidated by cross browser issues
  • Understand UX principles and can talk to us about what makes a great user experience
  • Believe performance is central to a good UX and are familiar with various techniques to build a responsive application
  • Are able to solve real-world problems by thinking out of the box, not just by following convention
  • Are eager to roll up your sleeves and get it done, whatever it is
  • Are not religious about tools/technologies/languages
