Job Title: Senior Front-end Engineer

As a member of the Talent Desktop App team, you will work on our first-class talent experience. We build a desktop application based on Electron to give our talent better ways to interact with Toptal.

We are a product development team and you can expect involvement in where and how the team moves next, and what processes the team adopts and drops. We explore various directions often simultaneously. You can expect autonomy and freedom to lead product, technical, or cultural initiatives.

In our technical stack, we employ Ruby on Rails for back-end and a combination of Apollo, TypeScript, and React for front-end.

We are unable to provide visa sponsorship. Resumes and communication must be submitted in English.


You will build and maintain first-class software used by our vast talent network.

Among other responsibilities:

  • Make decisions based on multiple quality dimensions like user impact, failure tolerance, code maintenance, implementation time, security breaches, and performance.
  • Mentor fellow teammates.
  • Collaborate on novel ideas to improve the team processes.
  • Lead initiatives.
  • Care for and monitor the quality of our product.
  • Raise awareness of technical issues.
  • Develop a clear understanding of business value and collaborate with stakeholders by analyzing features and suggesting alternatives.
  • Proactively identify technical debt and product areas that require attention or improvements and suggest improvements in our technology stack.
  • Bring up difficult and/or systemic challenges and impediments to the attention of your manager.

In the first week, expect to:

  • Meet your team members.
  • Get acquainted with our technical stack.
  • Learn about our architecture and the development process.

In the first month, expect to:

  • Attend regular meetings, like technical calls, retrospectives, and the monthly Engineering All-hands meeting.
  • Start working on general team tasks and become familiar with the domain.
  • Start to receive regular feedback from your manager in accordance with the Toptal engineering growth program.

In the first three months, expect to:

  • Settle in and get comfortable with the team processes.
  • Contribute significantly to the Talent Desktop Application development.

In the first six months, expect to:

  • Become a key member of the team and help others inside and outside of the team.
  • Contribute to the planning of large initiatives.
  • Lead technical initiatives within the team.
  • Drive improvements to the codebase and processes.

In the first year, expect to:

  • Mentor and be part of the interviewing processes, to support the growth of our top-skilled engineering team.
  • Lead product initiative.


  • Have a solid 3+ years front-end experience.
  • React, Apollo GraphQL, TypeScript, Jest, and Playwright are our front-end stack. The desire to learn and be proficient in them is welcome. JavaScript and HTML are mandatory.
  • Experience with Electron is a plus.
  • Experience with non-frontend programming languages and technical stacks is welcome.
  • Thriving in autonomy in every aspect of daily work – be able to unblock yourself by finding the right people or help.
  • Being a team player by avoiding solo performances and unblocking your peers.
  • Caring for the quality through impactful tests, process change proposals, and raising awareness of issues be it product or technical.
  • Caring for architecture – applying best practices, using software design patterns, and bringing ideas for improvements.
  • You must be a world-class individual contributor to thrive at Toptal. You will not be here just to tell other people what to do.
