Front-End Engineer

Ambiata works in a challenging and complex field, bringing data and personalisation together at a massive scale.

We are looking for an individual who shares our passion for making great products and can bring their skills in building robust user-interfaces to help us build out our hosted data-science platform. You would join our engineering team in Sydney, specialising in front-end web-development and tooling.

What we're looking for?

You will be versatile, with solid skills and experience across a variety of front-end technologies and approaches, combined with an appreciation of healthy engineering processes such as code review and testing as well as a deep understanding of library and tool design.

In this role you will be:

  • Collaborating with a designer to build out robust, dynamic web components.
  • Working with other engineers on server side requirements, APIs and integration to deliver features to our customers.
  • Building out the front-end architecture and the set of tools we use for front-end development.
  • Identifying and resolving visual flaws, performance issues and scalability problems

You will have the following attributes:

  • Extensive experience building out rich web interfaces in a team environment.
  • A working knowledge of HTML and CSS, paired with excellent JavaScript skills. This should include browser APIs and compatibility, front-end performance, and testing.
  • The ability to apply tools and techniques to reduce and manage the complexity of modern web applications. Ideally you would be able to both use and critique common approaches such as virtual DOM / React.
  • An interest in working with PureScript or other typed / functional JavaScript alternatives. Experience in PureScript or Haskell is a benefit.

Why you matter to us?

At Ambiata, we have built out sophisticated hosted data-science and machine learning services, and we now want to give our customers direct control. Like everything we do, we want the interface to look great, be easy and intuitive to use and never break.

To achieve this, we know we need a set of people who specialise and care deeply about user-interfaces and front-end engineering. This is where you come in.

Why would you want to work as a front-end engineer at Ambiata?

Working at Ambiata in any capacity is a unique experience. Ambiata is a place where you will have the flexibility and power to do what you’re great at, and in the way you want to do it.

As a front-end engineer at Ambiata, you would face difficult but ultimately rewarding challenges; getting to build out rich interfaces that expose Ambiata’s deep technical expertise, including high-volume data, visualisations and predictive analytics. You would get to do this in an environment that values quality, heavily utilising modern programming tools and techniques, to get the job done.

You will have at your side a team of amazing engineers who value getting things right, a team of mathematicians and data-scientists who have a deep understanding of data-visualisation and communication to lean on, and a management team who will get out of your way and let you do your job.
