LEX is seeking to hire a Senior Software Engineer to join our team and lead our efforts on the frontend.

  • Work with engineers across the company to build new features
  • Improve frontend code standards, tooling, and processes
  • Write React code in Typescript
  • Focus on eliminating risks and build reliable, scalable and performant systems
  • Hold yourself and others to a high bar when working with production systems
  • Over time, hire a team of engineers to support your work.

Requirements:

  • 4+ years of React experience
  • Mastery of CSS
  • Experience building applications from scratch
  • Solid foundation of modern web frameworks
  • Advanced in Node, Express, and JavaScript / TypeScript
  • Similar experience as an early engineer at a startup would be a bonus.
