Frontend Engineer

We are looking for a front end engineer with an eye for design. We are looking for someone skilled in product design and front end web technologies. You will have to sketch, mock and optimize key features and concepts. At Safepay, our web engineers work on three different products: the consumer-facing web product our users love, the merchant-facing dashboard that our clients use to manage their payments and the operational backbone that powers this and our other Safepay products.
Your work will help design and engineering work together seamlessly. You will contribute to reiterating products based on customer feedback. As a member of the web operations team, you’ll build core frontend infrastructure and tools to build products that users will love.

Your day-to-day will involve:

Architecting new features and reusable UI paradigms using ReactJS
Creating a unified component library for use across all products
Implementing functional UI elements from design mocks, with an eye toward performance and accessibility
Knowing when to create abstractions vs. one-off features
Ensuring that components are functional, elegant, performant, and mobile-friendly
Collaborating with stakeholders and market specialists to rapidly iterate on the product
Designing frameworks and tools that empower other developers
Producing mocks (or even rough wireframes if the design system is good enough to be able to "fill in the gaps") pretty quickly and then iterate from there - although we have a design resource in-house

Must Haves

At least 3 years of React experience
Experience with TypeScript in React
A deep understanding of the architecture of modern client-side React applications
Prior experience working with component libraries or design teams in user-facing applications
A desire to keep up with modern best practices in web development
Familiarity with React Hooks
Leading the product from inception to launch, and own large parts of the product’s execution
Building and testing products to support Safepay’s payment operations

Nice to Haves

Familiarity with React native, MySQL and Go
Familiarity with the web3 frontend stack (ethers.js/web3.js, EIP-1193, client-side private key management, etc.)
Degree in computer science/mathematics

Core Tech Stack

Modern JavaScript, ES6 and up / Typescript
React Native
React 16+
Redux + React Hooks
Styled Components
Golang on the backend
Feeling ready to give 100% to democratizing our financial system? We’d love to have you apply, even if you feel unsure about whether you meet every single requirement in this posting. At Safepay, we’re looking for people invigorated by our mission, not just those who simply check off all the boxes.
