Staff Software Engineer, Front-end Frameworks, Box

Staff Software Engineer, Front-end Frameworks (Los Altos, CA)

Box's Front-end Frameworks team is looking for an experienced engineer to join us at our Los Altos, CA headquarters on our mission to make building web applications on top of the Box infrastructure easy, fast, and fun.

About the Team

Front-end Frameworks ensures that Box web applications are built on top of the best tools and frameworks available. We actively evaluate third-party libraries and frameworks, as well as building our own, to make sure our feature teams can be as effective and iterative as possible. In the past two years, we've led the establishment of front-end best practices, created a lightweight client-side framework that has improved developer experience by enforcing conventions and loose coupling, and started putting together a Node.js framework to power the next generation of Box web applications.

About the Job

You'll help develop and maintain our client-side and server-side frameworks as part of a team working directly with our web application architect. You'll help transition existing web applications, through coding and teaching, to our Node.js infrastructure. You'll be proactive in looking for ways to improve developer experience, whether through the introduction and creation of new tools, documentation and education, or any other creative ways you can think of.

As the technology and framework landscape changes, you'll help evaluate and make recommendations about our overall direction.

About You

You are passionate about, and well-versed in, front-end technologies and best practices from accessible and semantic HTML and CSS to client-side JavaScript to Node.js on the server. You understand the importance of making incremental changes on large products. You enjoy teaching others, as well as working in a collaborative environment where your work can positively affect a large number of engineers. You have a good understanding of software design and architecture, and are looking to continue learning and growing. You have 8 or more years of experience and have worked on large-scale web applications.

"Additional note: we're unable to consider remote employees for this position" that should be a BIG note on top, not a parenthetical one.
