About Convex

At Convex (YC W19), we’re building the leading B2B full-stack software platform for the $400bn+ commercial services market. It's a 100-year-old industry impacting millions of people every day. We already work with some of the largest enterprise companies in the sector and were one of the fastest growing companies in the Winter 2019 YC batch. Our team is a unique mix of industry veterans from Carrier, Siemens, and Honeywell as well as founders from MIT, Harvard, and Georgia Tech. Based in San Francisco, our investors include Emergence Capital, 1984 Ventures, UP2398, Liquid2 (Joe Montana), Y Combinator, the founders of PlanGrid, and others.

About the role

At Convex, we build the leading B2B platform for the fast growing commercial and building services industry. Our software provides rich data on every commercial property in the US (~63M) and workflow software built on top of that. For our users who serve these properties, that data and workflow becomes their secret weapon; there's nothing else like it available in the market today. Our customers rely on Convex to identify, win, and manage new growth opportunities.

We are based in, and love, the seven square miles of San Francisco, but our customers (and employees) live and work in almost every state in America. They include some of the largest enterprises in the country, like Siemens and Carrier, and smaller businesses we care just as deeply about.

 

The Product 

Our flagship product, Atlas, is a “consumer grade enterprise product.” Think Apple experience with Oracle utility. Atlas supercharges our users’ work by providing them with information on virtually every commercial property in the country. There is literally no other data source like this available anywhere. All that data is interesting, but it isn’t powerful unless you have the ability to work with it, which is why we are building a full suite of specialized software tools on top of it.

 

The Role

 We’re looking for a talented Senior Frontend Engineer to grow our team working across our web and desktop products. As a Senior Frontend Engineer, you will be responsible for:

Owning core, complex components of the Atlas application

Drive and deliver on our product roadmap, working alongside our Head of Design, Chief Product Officer, and Product Manager to turn ideas into features

Find elegant solutions to usability problems

Provide leadership and mentorship to other engineers on the team

Ramp on new web technologies that will make Atlas better

 

Everyone has their own preferences, but we all share responsibility for and work on the entire platform from UI to database.

 

Every commercial property means gargantuan data sets, which in turn means high performance and architecture demands on the software you build. We operate in small teams of high performers with clear product goals. We use Swift, Ruby, Postgres, PostGIS, Google Maps, AWS, Angular, and Python among others.

Requirements

  • A bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related subject
  • 5-7+ years of professional frontend engineering experience working on external facing applications
  • 3+ years of experience with a frontend framework such as React/Redux, Angular, or Vue
  • Expert knowledge of JavaScript.
  • Strong experience with HTTP, HTML, CSS, and web security concepts.
  • Experience using Javascript typing languages / linters (Typescript, ESLint).
  • Comfortable using the Unix command line
  • A selfless and team oriented personality, proactive tendencies, excellent communication skills
  • A strong work ethic, and the experience or desire to work at a growth stage startup
  • The desire to improve yourself and be a positive influence on those around you
  • An instinctive drive to write quality code, the humility to understand and improve existing code, and the wisdom to make tradeoffs between elegance and efficiency without sacrificing product quality

Nice to Haves

  • Experience with any of the following: Tailwind, GraphQL
  • Solid understanding of user-centered design and interaction design principles
  • Strong attention to detail
  • Stay up to date with technology and how to apply it to solve real-world business problems
  • Want to form the core of a growing engineering and develop its culture

  • Paid parental leave of up to 4 months with 100% pay

  • Flexible & generous time-off plans (including mental health days!)

  • Income protection through short-term and long-term disability plans
