The ideal candidate will be an experienced developer who is savvy with data, fluent with Javascript (react), and keen to make a big contribution to the team and grow with the company. We are expanding our application capabilities and introducing significant new features on an ongoing basis. Our team is collaborative and we prefer candidates that are excited to work with backend and devops team members to deliver a feature and learn along the way.

  • Understand the capabilities of SensorUp and current customer applications.  
  • Contribute directly to SensorUp, familiarizing with the architecture and development workflows through feature development and collaboration with our talented development team.
  • Understand all our development workflows, release processes, and CI/CD processes.

  • Create new feature areas and own significant scope with minimal guidance. We provide a high level of autonomy and ownership.  
  • Research and implement geospatial features, 4D features, advanced visualization and reporting features.  
  • Optimize aspects of our platform through the implementation of web-workers, service workers, web-sockets, and caching strategies.
  • Closely interact with the team to plan, coordinate, and execute features that span multiple system areas.  
  • Work with streaming data, feature data, and historical data and advance your understanding of our internal data structures and our software domains.

  • Someone who loves to learn new technologies and stay up to speed on ever evolving front-end technologies and approaches.

  • Fluency in modern Javascript and front-end frameworks, especially React.
  • DevOps mindset of automation, measurement, monitoring, and improvement as it applies to the front-end and related system areas.  
  • Self-directed, driven, and sharp. Will proactively obtain the direction or specification you require from the team vs. waiting for direction.

  • Contribute to the code review, and QA processes which we are whole team processes.
