Role Description

Knowde is transforming the $5 trillion chemical industry by building a rich, digital marketplace where buyers and sellers can research, discover, collaborate, negotiate, and purchase chemicals and ingredients quickly and repeatedly. By moving these transactions online, Knowde is broadly expanding the reach of the chemicals marketplace and also providing a level of information transparency never before seen in this industry.

Knowde is looking to add an immensely talented Lead Front End Developer to join our Engineering team. As one of the founding engineers, you will help us invent, design, refine, and deliver the products that will enable this digital transformation.

  • Own your projects from software design to implementation and deployment. Transform UI designs and mockups into pages and flows using CSS3 and JavaScript frameworks such as Bootstrap and Angular.

  • Build modular front-end code leveraging REST-based services.

  • Emphasize simplicity and pragmatism, which is reflected in your elegant code that other developers emulate.

  • Have an exceptional understanding of asynchronous request handling, partial page updates and AJAX.

What you’ll bring:

  • 5+ years’ experience developing rich UI/Front-end for user-facing web applications.

  • Strong experience with Angular 6+, TypeScript, RxJs, ngrx, SSR, PWA, OOP, Reactive programming, Unit tests (karma + jasmine), Flexbox, single & progressive page web application and client side MVC architecture.

  • Ability to function as a project leader as well as an individual contributor.

  • Ability to work and collaborate within distributed, multidisciplinary teams.

  • Excellent communication and facilitation skills.

  • Experience in developing secure web applications and knowledge of application vulnerabilities such as Cross Site Scripting (XSS), Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) etc. High bar for quality and a phenomenal attention to detail.

  • Experience writing clean, unobtrusive JavaScript including experience with common libraries (jQuery and Angular/Ember/React) and debugging tools.

  • Knowledge of browser quirks and their remedies.

  • Knowledge of browser internals like JavaScript engines and ways to tune code for best performance.
