OpenX is looking for a talented and highly motivated senior front end/UI engineer to help the Internal Platform Tools team build and enhance custom web applications in support of our customers.

The Internal Platform Tools team is dedicated to scrum/agile and as part of that, your opinion and participation will be important in all phases of product development, starting from requirements and proceeding to development (including pair programming) through to testing and deployment.

So who are we looking for? In addition to a positive, collaborative attitude, we’re looking for a rock solid Computer Science foundation. We are seeking to hire someone with a minimum of 5 years of experience along with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or equivalent degree (MS degree a plus). As a senior engineer, you’ll own components, processes, and workflows that demand professionalism, excellent communication, teamwork, and documentation skills.

Our technology stack is evolving but currently includes Linux, Django, Python, Angular.js, JavaScript, MySQL, Riak and RabbitMQ. For configuration and deployment we utilize Salt and GoCD. Your existing knowledge and expertise with some or most of these technologies are important, but even more important is your ability to quickly fill in any gaps and adapt to changes in technologies. As a Sr UI engineer, your practical ability in JavaScript and other front end technologies will be particularly relevant.

You have a deep knowledge of design patterns and industry best practices in software architecture as well as to whiteboard elegant code. You should be comfortable using the right tools and languages for the job, even brand new ones. Plus, you have the ability to develop scalable, modular applications. You must have a deep understanding of web technologies and applications, and be right at home with working on *nix platforms. Lastly, you should also have a service attitude and user empathy as we also support (to internal employees) the tools we build.

If this sounds like your opportunity to make a massive contribution to internal applications that support our employees and indirectly support OpenX customers, as well as a chance to deliver the best experience possible at an enterprise level, we look forward to your application!
