Senior Frontend Software Engineer - Product UI
We are looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to join our rapidly growing team. Our frontend engineers work as a small, agile unit consulting across product lines to improve usability throughout the business. Paxos defies traditional divisions and gives frontend engineers ownership over the design, implementation and testing of new features. Every engineer, despite seniority, has the opportunity to influence our product strategy by working directly with stakeholders, helping define feature requirements, and refine usability patterns. A commitment to teamwork, empathy, and strong communication skills are absolute requirements.
Paxos uses a mix of open source technologies and leading vendor offerings to build our products. As a member of the frontend team, you will primarily work with:
- React, Typescript, and SASS Modules for implementing layouts
- Webpack and NodeJS to build our application
Paxos is on a mission to enable the movement of any asset, any time, in a trustworthy way. Today’s financial infrastructure is archaic, expensive, inefficient and risky - supporting a system that leaves out more people than it lets in. So we’re rebuilding it.
As a regulated blockchain infrastructure company, we use technology to tokenize, custody, trade, and settle assets for enterprise clients like PayPal, Bank of America, and Interactive Brokers. Paxos is a top-funded blockchain company, with more than $500 million in total funding from leading investors like OakHC/FT, Founders Fund, PayPal Ventures, and Declaration Partners. Together, we empower today’s financial leaders to build a more open, trusted economy.
What you will do:
- Help found an internal component library that will be used across business lines and in marketing materials to standardize Paxos look and feel.
- Implement interfaces for a variety of internal and external facing features taking inspiration from both the crypto and fintech worlds.
- Create high resolution mockups to test interfaces with users.
- Help to define the company’s design to engineering pipeline.
What you need to have:
- Extensive JS experience, pre and post ES6. Comfort writing code for the DOM and transpiler.
- 5+ years of work experience (as either a technical designer or frontend engineer).
- Strong, loosely held opinions on frontend state management, layout construction, and testing strategy.
- An understanding of how to leverage typed languages to improve code safety.
- Comfort using one or more Interface Framework (React, Vue, Angular, etc.)
- Basic understanding of raw HTML / CS
- Experience working cross functionally and directly with stakeholders
