Senior Front-end Engineer (f/m/d)

Permanent employee, Full-time · Remote

About the role
We are looking for an experienced front-end engineer, with a strong track-record of delivering results, a passion for sharing knowledge, and a willingness to work in a fast-paced startup environment. Your responsibilities will mainly be split into front-end development and setting up growth for front-end engineers. We want you to take end-to-end ownership of our front-end from an architectural and best practices perspective, to constantly raise the quality bar in your area of expertise. Your main goal will be to ensure that Taktile delivers its product vision to customers with fast iteration of product features and improvements. Your secondary goal will be to initiate and drive forward our Front-End Chapter in Taktile, with a focus on knowledge management and setting up front-end engineers for long-term success and career growth at Taktile. To achieve your goals, you will work closely with technical leadership, product management, design team, and engineering.

Taktile is a hybrid company. It would be great if you can join us in our HQ office in Berlin, but we are also hiring fully remotely within +/- 2h of the Berlin HQ timezone (CEST/GMT+2). Strong grasp of written and spoken English is a must to effectively and clearly communicate in ​our remote environment. Our hiring model is full-time employment contract.
What You'll Do
  • Own the technical decisions on our front-end based on React, Typescript, Vite, Cypress, react-query and react-flow.
  • Take end-to-end ownership of our front-end from an architectural and best practices perspective.
  • Translate Figma designs into React, and continuously iterate on the implementation based on customer feedback.
  • Own and improve our front-end development cycle.
  • Frequently engage in pair programming - this is our most effective mechanism to transfer knowledge.
  • Set and own the quality bar for our front-end code-base. Automated testing will be part of the job.
  • Provide on-boarding guidance for new joiners and knowledge sharing for other engineers.
  • Consolidate knowledge sharing across the front-end discipline into a Front-End Engineering Chapter.
  • Actively contribute to hiring top talent for Taktile through technical interviewing.
  • Be an active sparring partner for product and the engineering lead by participating in our active feedback culture.
Ideal, But Not Required
  • Experience working with AWS, but any core cloud system works (GCP, Azure).
  • B2B or SaaS experience is a strong plus.
Our Offer
  • Work with colleagues that lift you up, challenge you, celebrate you and help you grow. We come from many different backgrounds, but what we have in common is the desire to operate at the very top of our fields. If you are similarly capable, caring, and driven, you'll find yourself  at home here.
  • Make an impact and meaningfully shape an early-stage company.
  • Experience a truly flat hierarchy and communicate directly with founding team members. Having an opinion and voicing your ideas is not only welcome but encouraged, especially when they challenge the status quo.
  • Learn from experienced mentors and achieve tremendous personal and professional growth. Get to know and leverage our network of leading tech investors and advisors around the globe.
  • Receive a top-of-market equity and cash compensation package.
  • Get access to a self-development budget you can use to e.g. attend conferences, buy books or take classes.
  • Use the equipment of your choice including meaningful home office set-up. We do support fully remote set-ups.
  • Make use of our relocation support if you're moving to Berlin. We can help with immigration.
Our Stance
  • We're eager to meet talented and driven candidates regardless of whether they tick all the boxes. We're looking for someone who will add to our culture, not just fit within it. We strongly encourage individuals from groups traditionally underestimated and underrepresented in tech to apply.
  • We seek to actively recognize and combat racism, sexism, ableism and ageism. We embrace and support all gender identities and expressions, and celebrate love in its many forms. We won't inquire about how you identify or if you've experienced discrimination, but if you want to tell your story, we are all ears.
