Frontend UX Engineer at Roadie
Roadie is improving developer effectiveness in engineering organizations across the globe. By helping companies adopt and use Backstage, the open-source developer portal and service catalog developed at Spotify, we are making developers' lives easier and more productive.
We believe we’re at an inflection point where we can build a huge company if we make the correct choices now. We grew revenue by 10x in 2022 and have similar momentum in 2023. The work you do will directly impact that forward progress.
We are a fully remote, seed stage startup, backed by some of the best investors in the DevTools ecosystem. From developer-first VC firms like Boldstart, to individual angels like Guy Podjarny - the founder of developer focused security company Snyk, and Adam Gross, the ex-CEO of Heroku.
Though our company is young and has grown quickly, we have maintained a tight-knit culture and way of working even though we’re spread across 7 different European countries.
We aim to create a company culture where individual employees are empowered and trusted to do their best work. We are focused on collaboration, learning, and community conscientiousness.
About the position
You will get to work on some exciting new Roadie features we have in the pipeline, leading on the design of thoughtful UIs for them and lending your experience to the rest of the team in a collaborative way.
You’ll get to interact daily with our customers who are other developers like us at a broad range of companies like Snyk and Netlify, and will have support and freedom to conduct user testing with them, as well as seeing their reaction to your work and iterating on their feedback.
Our codebase is largely modeled around the open source Backstage project which leverages a decoupled plugin architecture alongside an appropriate level of reusability. This allows for new features to be developed in an independent way and for good design principles to be applied from the start.
We have a highly pragmatic workflow that emphasizes daily collaboration via Slack and Hangouts over rituals and unnecessary meetings. We deploy new versions of our product multiple times a day and look to work on small vertical slices that provide some value over big waterfall feature development.
We are looking for remote candidates residing in timezones UTC-2 to UTC+3.
Our Ideal Candidate
A design focused engineer confident in creating carefully thought through UI designs that consider the user and business requirements, who can then implement their designs with clean code using React and Typescript.
You are experienced and passionate about good UX and UI design.
You are confident in leading a design process to assess and implement UX solutions to problems.
You are experienced in design systems, building components and reviewing designs.
You take a collaborative approach to design and implementation and are a skilled facilitator.
You ask thoughtful questions more than you present opinions.
You always look to use metrics and user research to inform decision making where possible.
You start tasks by considering assumptions and problems, not solutions.
You understand the cost benefit analysis of testing in a mature way and prioritize it where appropriate over delivery speed.
