Senior Front End Web Developer

Join a warm, welcoming and professional team committed to building circl.es, a tool that helps connect small groups within organisations in powerful conversations. 

Circles Mission

The rush to digital and virtual swamped us with information at the expense of human connection. Circl.es adds this magic element back by making it easy to create powerful, synchronous, small group sessions. The Circl.es SaaS platform supercharges learning programs and builds highly engaged organizations and communities. It creates safe spaces at scale to bring our full selves to address our biggest challenges. The pandemic and polarization have made this urgent. Founded in 2017, we have partnered with leadership development pioneers like Harvard Business School, the Aspen Institute and Young Presidents Organization to help people across the world grow together.


What’s neat about the role?

  • Want to learn about webRTC and real time video?
  • Curious about why we love functional language programming?
  • Desire answers as to our preference for languages like Elixir and F#?
  • Puzzled over the reason why this is sometimes brilliant, and sometimes… maybe not the best? 🙂
  • Interested in discovering more about the AWS cloud and technology stack?
  • Excited about discovering the tradeoffs between a key value store and a relational database?
  • Above all, do you like a job where you can commit yourself to learning?

What do we expect from you?

We’re looking for a senior developer who has extensive software engineering experience with a strong focus in front end web architecture. Taking a genuine enjoyment in mentoring others and sharing your knowledge of modern web techniques to help others grow will make you a great fit for this role.

Typescript, React, CSS, Elixir are the primary languages we use for web development, so knowledge of at least some of these is important. Your understanding of databases and data analysis is something we’d love to hear about too!

The role involves joining the development team to help:

  • Improve our front end engineering and architecture
  • Mentor other developers and share your skills and experience
  • Build our customer management interfaces and administration tools.
  • Integrate with real time web video providers and adding features to our web based video meeting space. 
  • Improve our understanding of how our clients use our features via analytics and data science
  • Helping clients by troubleshooting and resolving issues is an important part of providing a great end user experience.
  • Convert the UI mockups from our design team in to elegant CSS and HTMLLine 2

We strive to build applications that efficiently scale to a large number of users. A real time communications platform for small connected groups involves interesting challenges you won’t see in most web development.

We are building a new team in Buenos Aires to work with the operations staff who are already based there and growing our teams in New Zealand and Australia. Applicants from these regions are welcome.

We mostly work remotely, but also value the time we spend meeting in person to discuss design goals, architecture and process improvements.Given our multinational team, the skill to communicate effectively about technical concepts in English is important.

Providing us with a link to your github repository (or similar example of your work) in your resume will be greatly appreciated, and help us understand what you will bring to the team.


Growth

As we grow, there is opportunity to cross over in to other roles, such as back-end development, infrastructure, product development, QA, or joining the mobile app development teams.

Growth, learning and opportunity are a part of our culture which we strongly believe in.

In a world of physical distance, circles facilitate authentic human connection.

In a circle, 3-12 participants contribute equally, share openly, and push each other to act.

We spent years with academics and practitioners, honing best practices and building a technology platform. Our circles have helped scale peer learning, sustain manager and leadership development, move live training online, onboard new employees, support career development, teach collaboration, and build community.

We’ve been grateful for the support and the referrals from our large corporate partners, schools, and communities who have been hiring us to help design, facilitate and manage Circles programs.

In order to keep up with the interest in our system and technology, please help us understand your needs by answering a few questions.
