A bit about Scalyr 

Scalyr’s mission is to build the best tool for engineers to understand their operational systems. Our CEO, Steve Newman, cofounded Writely (aka Google Docs). Frustrated by the fact that visibility tools - even Google’s in-house tools - weren’t keeping up, he started Scalyr to build a better solution. It’s lightning fast, feature-rich and customers love it. The opportunity in front of us is huge and we are still in the very early days. This is going to be one of those companies where people will look back and say “I wish I’d been there when…” well, this is “when”.

Your opportunity

As a member of our core Engineering team, you will be working directly on the portion of our product with the highest customer visibility. We’re a frontend team that takes good software engineering design principles seriously. You will be joining us in building an almost magically responsive user interface that attracts and delights our customers. While we use popular AngularJS tools, we also develop our own tools internally to help increase development velocity. Speed is important to us, so you will be working to squeeze the most performance out of JavaScript as possible. We are looking for individuals who can act as thought-leaders in frontend development and in the overall architecture of our complex app!

Your skills

  • 5+ years in JavaScript frontend development
  • 4-year degree in Computer Science
  • Strong knowledge of computer science fundamentals (data structures, algorithms, etc.)
  • Strongly preferred: experience with multiple JavaScript frameworks (e.g. AngularJS, React, Backbone, JQuery)
  • Nice-to-have: Experience with TypeScript

Your benefits

  • Competitive salary & equity at a fast growing startup
  • Fully funded comprehensive medical, dental, and vision coverage
  • 401k
  • Free lunch
  • Flexible schedule - we all work from home on Wednesdays
  • Unlimited vacations
  • Paid parental leave
  • Daily company hike
  • Easygoing, low-stress, considerate and fun office environment
  • Whatever equipment you need to get the job done
