Software Developer ksqlDB UI


Remote job description

Confluent is pioneering a fundamentally new category of data infrastructure focused on data in motion. Have you ever found a new favourite series on Netflix, picked up groceries curbside at Walmart, or paid for something using Square? That's the power of data in motion in action-giving organisations instant access to the massive amounts of data that is constantly flowing throughout their business. At Confluent, we're building the foundational platform for this new paradigm of data infrastructure. Our cloud-native offering is designed to be the intelligent connective tissue enabling real-time data, from multiple sources, to constantly stream across the organisation. With Confluent, organisations can create a central nervous system to innovate and win in a digital-first world.

We're looking for self-motivated team members who crave a challenge and feel energised to roll up their sleeves and help realise Confluent's enormous potential. Chart your own path and take healthy risks as we solve big problems together. We value having diverse teams and want you to grow as we grow-whether you're just starting out in your career or managing a large team, you'll be amazed at the magnitude of your impact.

About the Role:
We are looking for a Front-End Software Developer interested in building engaging and insightful products for managing and visualizing large scale distributed real-time data streams. Data flow is central to how companies operate and we aim to make that experience intuitive and attractive. As a Front-End Software Developer, you will be responsible for creating new visualizations and interfaces that can scale with Apache Kafka.

This role is based in the ksqlDB team, and will focus on the ksqlDB product, but responsibilities will extend to driving quality and extensibility in the larger Confluent platform UI.

About our stack:

    • Multiple SPAs written in React over a common codebase using Yarn Workspaces
    • Code verification done with comprehensive linting, type checking and unit + e2e tests
    • Deployments happen daily with the ability to test each and every commit in production (even PRs)
    • Feature flags unblock us from coordinating releases with backend teams
    • Bots keep all of our dependencies up to date

Who you are:

    • Smart, humble, and empathetic
    • Have a strong sense of teamwork and put team and company interests first
    • Driven and excited about challenges of a fast-paced, innovative software startup environment
    • Have an ownership mentality

What we're looking for:

    • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or similar field or equivalent
    • Experience building client-side web applications for data-intensive applications
    • Excellent understanding of modern JavaScript, typing in JS, HTML5, and CSS
    • Experience with React/Flux (or equivalent), modern JavaScript tooling/Webpack/Babel
    • Strong foundation in algorithms and application design
    • Experience with writing/monitoring/managing large scale system deployments
    • Experience decomposing large, monolithic code bases
    • Mentoring experience
    • Experience helping other backend or full stack developers execute on UI-related tasks
