About the role
We’re looking for an experienced Frontend Senior Software Engineer to join our team to work on our core frontend Flix development.
As a member of this team, you’ll jump into the deep end of the latest web technologies using Typescript, Angular 7+, and Electron. You will work with large datasets of hand-drawn artwork and storyboard data to build a collaborative, intuitive user interface our users will love. You will work closely with product managers and QA to spec, build, test and deploy new features. You’ll engineer your features to be scalable and modular in a large application, and you’ll also have a deep focus of writing extensive unit and end-to-end tests that let the team move fast and keep high quality standards.
About the product
Flix is a visual story development tool for a feature film, TV production, games, and more. Designed to promote fast-paced creative collaboration, Flix removes the technical barriers that can cause frustration and slow you down. With Flix, directors, producers, story artists, editors, and 3D layout and previous artists can all collaborate in one easy-to-access place, letting them explore and iterate freely; deliver faster story turnarounds, and share involvement in the development of a project earlier in the process.
Moving the product forward to take advantage of cloud technologies is an important step in taking Flix forward. We are now rebuilding FLIX from the ground up, using modern technologies and design architecture.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
