Front-end Engineer

We’re Knack, a code-free platform used by thousands of customers — from non-profits to the world’s biggest companies — to easily build custom apps, workflows, and databases.

We’re looking for a brilliant Front-end engineer to help us meet the enormous challenges around making it easy to do useful things with data.

Knack is and has always been a 100% remote company. We started as a remote company so we know what it takes to ensure the success of a distributed team. TLDR: that essentially means that each member of the team has a huge amount of autonomy and ownership to define their work and impact.

In this role, you will:

  • Be opinionated and take the lead on all facets of front-end code at Knack.
  • Work with Vue and ES6 to build and maintain Knack product features. Work with Backbone to support legacy portions of the product.
  • Propose and implement architectural approaches for new features and refactoring legacy code.
  • Improve the quality and confidence of a complex codebase with tests, audits, and performance metrics.
  • Code every day. Although we expect technical and product leadership, this is primarily an executional role.
  • Implement features in our design system using Sass. We strive to keep our CSS simple yet easy to work with. We’re open to utilizing BEM and SMACCS principles where they make sense.
  • Be an inspiring and supportive teammate by participating in PR reviews, pair programming, active feedback, idea generation, teaching, learning, and in general being a delightful human being.

We’re looking for someone who is:

  • Passionate about turning complex business requirements into elegant software that delights users.
  • Experienced as a meaningful contributor to a complex front-end architecture at scale.
  • An expert in JavaScript and modern reactive frameworks: preferably Vue, or a desire to leverage React experience to master Vue.
  • Humble but opinionated. You have lots of ideas, yet you are happy to shift directions when a better path emerges. You take your work much more seriously than you take yourself.
  • An active collaborator. You want feedback on your work early and often, and you get a kick out of a collaborative process because it challenges you to do better work.
  • Hungry for meaningful work, and space to do it. Knack is a complex product in a complex space and the work is extremely challenging – but also deeply rewarding. Knack makes a major impact in the work of thousands of companies and organizations.

Our Stack

  • Front-end: ES6, Vue, Vuex, Vue Router, BackboneJS, Webpack
  • Components & Design: We’re looking for someone to take the lead on direction here. We’re open to Storybook, Atomic design, Sass, Post CSS, CSS Modules
  • Testing: Mocha Unit Tests, Cypress.js, Ghost Inspector
  • Back-end: Node.js, Mongo, SQL, Solr, Redis, AWS
