Product Engineers – Remote First Company Scaling Up

Up to £100,000
London Bridge London Bridge Location Remote
Job Type
Evolution Recruitment Solutions https://www.evolutionjobs.com/

Product Engineers are required to join an exciting REMOTE FIRST company where you can build beautiful & functional products from start-to-finish. They are flexible about when you work and believe in experimentation – whether that’s with how they build things or how their teams work. They’d love to chat to you if you like the sound of this and love to build great user experiences!

They are a “remote-first” company and there’s no requirement for anyone to go into their headquarters.

About the company

They are building the world’s UX infrastructure and lowering the barrier to creating great user experiences by enabling any company in the world to have a sophisticated design system. They are allowing companies to design and develop user experiences in a much more systematic way and deliver high quality UX 10x faster.

They have built a design system documentation product people love and thanks to this they have grown through word-of-mouth to 1500+ customers including multiple Fortune 100s. They are the market leader in their category, grew their team by over 4x in 2021 and have the backing of world-class investors. But design system documentation is just the beginning… they are now perfectly positioned to become the leader in DesignOps and transform how products are built. That’s why they have expanded to the Bay Area in 2021 to fulfil their ambition of being a truly global company 

What would you be doing

They are still small (10 product engineers, 55 people total) so you’d be working on building all types of features teaming up with a designer and product manager. You’ll have start-to-finish ownership of the features – this brings accountability but also an awesome sense of pride when users love your work. You’ll be involved in planning scope to ensure they deliver value to their users quickly.

Here are some examples of recent features to give a taste of what you could be working on:

  • new ways of easily syncing design documentation across multiple style guides
  • moving some of their most important functionality to serverless functions on AWS Lambda
  • improving how teams collaborate through more advanced commenting and dynamic page linking

You’ll also be included in some things that are outside the traditional “software engineering” domain. Things like helping with support queries, planning the product roadmap, project management for your features and discussing wider company processes. There’ll also be plenty of opportunities to share your work, new technologies you’ve been exploring and things you’ve learnt with the team. Joining now is great if you want to broaden your skills or you’d like to create your own startup at some point.

Their tech stack

They use React to build any new UI components, paired with Storybook to work on them in isolation. They then integrate them into the main product. The bulk of the existing codebase is written in Marionette (Backbone.js) so they are working on a smooth transition (instead of a massive rewrite).

On the backend, their main server is in Rails (Ruby). They host their database and cloud infrastructure on AWS and use serverless functions (AWS Lambda) for a few things.

One word of warning – if you’re super passionate about a particular tech, their early-stage startup might not be the right place for you. They are focused on getting things done and shipping an amazing product; they will use whatever tech helps them get there.

Required experience

  • 3 years or more working as a software engineer
  • Experience with modern JavaScript frameworks / libraries such as React, Angular or Vue
  • Some experience with any backend technologies

Useful / Bonus experience

  • Ruby
  • AWS / Servers
