Frontend Software Engineer

Digital Ocean

Remote: U.S. & Canada or Office Locations: Cambridge, MA; New York, NY

Do you ever wonder what happens inside the cloud?

Headquartered in New York but based around the world, DigitalOcean is a dynamic, high-growth technology company that serves a robust and passionate community of developers around the world. Our mission is to simplify cloud computing for every developer. We are working on solving some of the most challenging and interesting technology projects around, on a scale unmatched by most.

We want people who are passionate about building apps that you and your peers will love.

We are looking for a Software Engineer I, UI who shares our passion for making complex applications appear simple for our customers. We’ll give you the freedom to do what you do best, so you should feel comfortable owning your work from start to finish, as well as bringing fresh ideas to the table that can make our products, development experience, and team better. You’ll have the opportunity to work closely with designers, product managers, and other engineers across the stack as you skill up to make ideas a reality. Our current stack consists of React, TypeScript, and GraphQL, though we also continue to support our legacy Ember application.

What You’ll Be Doing:

  • Working with our team to build out product feature enhancements using our React/Typescript/GraphQL stack
  • Collaborating with product and design to increase conversions, add feature enhancements and improve user experience 
  • Building new, efficient, and scalable front-end applications that will interface with public and internal APIs
  • Writing clean, maintainable, and testable code
  • Working with backend teams to solve complex problems

What We’ll Expect From You:

  • Passion for customers and the products we build for them
  • Experience in product frontend development working closely with backend developers and services, product management, and design/ux is preferred.
  • Have a strong understanding of JavaScript, CSS, and HTML fundamentals and theory
  • Have experience with at least one modern JavaScript application framework and have the ability to think outside the framework
  • A healthy drive to learn and grow from your engineering peers

Why You’ll Like Working for DigitalOcean:

  • We value development. You will work with some of the smartest and most interesting people in the industry. We are a high-performance organization that is always challenging ourselves to continuously grow. We maintain a growth mindset in everything we do and invest deeply in employee development through formalized mentorship, LinkedIn Learning tracks, and other internal programs. We also provide all employees with reimbursement for relevant conferences, training, and education.
  • We care about your physical, financial and mental well-being. We offer competitive health, dental, and vision benefits for employees and their dependents, a monthly gym stipend to support your physical health, and a commute or internet allowance to make your trips to your office or your desk easier. We offer generous parental leave with transition time built-in upon return to work. We offer competitive compensation and a 401k plan with up to a 4% employer match.
  • We support our remote employee experience. While we have great office spaces in NYC and Cambridge, we’re very distributed—we use a number of communication tools to connect across the company—and all remote employees have the opportunity to visit our offices and meet their teams face-to-face at team offsites. We also have an annual company offsite, Shark Week, to get quality in-person time with the entire company at least once a year. We also allow employees to outfit their workstations to meet their needs—whether remote or in office.
  • We value diversity and inclusivity. We are an equal opportunity employer and we do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
