See jobs at InfluxData

InfluxDB Cloud is the world’s leading time series database offered as a multi-cloud service, deployed and managed by InfluxData, and running in all three clouds (AWS, GCP and Azure). The Application team at InfluxData builds the UI that is the face of the InfluxDB Cloud. We have built the core set of end user functions - exploring, graphing, transforming and analyzing time series data -  but there is a huge opportunity to refine and to build additional capabilities in our UI. We are looking for a senior engineer who is ready to join a tight-knit team delivering a world-class user experience that delights our customers. 


What you’ll be doing:

  • Designing, developing, testing and delivering UI components for the InfluxData Cloud service - this means everything from building beautiful visual components to talking to the backing metadata services. The front-end is written in React, Redux, and TypeScript.  Ideally you are comfortable working not only on the front-end, but also have some working knowledge of Docker containers, REST APIs, and shell scripting.
  • Working with the design team and other stakeholders and subject matter experts to take new UI ideas from the whiteboard to our production service.
  • Mentoring fellow teammates by pairing and code reviews.
  • Helping to establish and reinforce best practices for how we design, deliver and test our services in a CI/CD environment.

What You’ll Bring to the Team: 

  • 5+ years of professional engineering experience in front-end development 
  • 5+ years of Javascript/React/TypeScript.
  • Prior experience building and shipping multi-tenant cloud software.
  • Working knowledge of Git (and GitHub).
  • Experience with testing frameworks such as Cypress, Mocha, and Jest.

Bonus points if you have:

  • Experience with non-relational databases. Even better if you’ve used time-series databases.
  • Prior professional experience with continuous integration/continuous deployment software development into public cloud environments.
  • Prior work experience using agile software development methodologies (Scrum, Kanban, etc).
  • Prior experience with the Go Language
