The Instaclustr Consulting team is seeking a mid to senior level front end developer to assist our clients with software solutions that solve existing problems, enable new business objectives, and ensure security, performance, and scalability, while not sacrificing time to deployment. The selected candidate will begin as a contract employee, and will be converted to a permanent employee after a brief evaluation period.

You'll be joining a distributed team of software engineers working in the e-commerce space on a high scale, mission critical, distributed web system. In this role you'll be responsible for building, supporting, and maintaining a number of web-based interfaces for our client, curating the user experience for the shopper journey, back-end portals, and suite of embedded tools, including both single page applications and traditional web applications, while maintaining performant and responsive interfaces.

Who are we?

Instaclustr, recently named in Deloitte’s 2020 fast 500 companies of North America after another monumental growth year, Instaclustr is an Australian owned open source as-a-service company, delivering reliability at scale. We manage cutting edge open source technologies (Cassandra, Kafka, Spark, Elasticsearch) for our customers around the world.

Responsibilities include improving existing front-end code, building reusable components, and helping to improve design consistency across user-facing touchpoints. In addition you'll be converting ad-hoc wire-frames and sketches into user-facing features, while working along both technical and non-technical team members to conceive UI/UX options when planning projects. Your day-to-day will be working within a GitHub based workflow, coordinating via Slack, operating on GCP. What you bring to the team is as important as the technologies involved; bringing what you learn and know to support the continual improvement of your teammates is critical for our success with clients. 

Note: Candidates should be able to overlap working hours with US Eastern Time Zone.


In a perfect world, you'd check all the boxes, but obviously we don't live in a perfect world (Hello 2021!). If you have most of the things and are confident you can pick it up, we're willing to take a look.
