Frontend Software Engineer

At FireHydrant, we’re building tools that modern operations teams are using to respond to incidents and resolve outages in their globally-distributed applications. We bring order when our customers are experiencing chaos.

As a frontend software engineer, you’ll build the experiences that power our product and scale to meet our customer’s needs. You’ll work with a variety of technologies as you design, build, and ship our rapidly expanding product. As an early member of our team, you’ll get to lay the groundwork for future product innovation and scaling capabilities.

We’re looking for people with a strong background or interest in building developer-focused products, care deeply about security and customer trust, and are comfortable learning new skills that will deliver value to our customers.

We’ve built our initial MVP, onboarded early customers and are now refining the product based on their feedback and focusing on the next generation of incident response. You’ll help us scale our application out by designing and building new platforms and features.

You’ll be working on
  • Data-driven incident response tooling with a focus on ensuring all perspectives are heard
  • Integrating content from third-party chat, alerting, project management, source control and CI/CD providers
  • UX design to distill many different streams of information into a cohesive product suite
  • Refining our current product to ensure that it is intuitive and that it is easy to use for engineers and non-technical people

We’re looking for someone who 
  • Is experienced with React and Redux-- bonus points for Ruby on Rails experience
  • Can pick the right technologies for the job, and can learn the right technologies when they need 
  • Takes ownership of a project from concept to production 
  • Enjoys working with, teaching, and learning from a diverse group of people 
  • Knows why good is better than good enough, but also knows why perfect is the enemy of good
  • Has a good understanding of user experience guidelines and can apply them to ensure users are productive on day one

Responsibilities 
  • Write scalable single page applications to effectively display dense information. 
  • Continue developing more effective UX patterns to simplify cognitive load on users. 
  • Participate in an on-call rotation as needed to support the availability needs of the product for our customers; as you can imagine, we need to be more available than them

  • Video interview with a few members of our current team 
  • Technical walk-through of an open source or personal project you’re proud of. We believe technical interviews should be practical, and are not something done on a whiteboard.
