Jun 17, 2022
THE OPPORTUNITY and REQUIREMENTS Front-end engineering at ACTUAL encompasses two primary challenges: building elegant and responsive interfaces with React and TypeScript, and exploring new ways of presenting those interfaces within immersive, beautiful 3D environments. Accomplishing these goals is very much an active R&D enterprise -- one that will require us to go well beyond the patterns of the typical web stack -- and we value individuals who combine enterprise-level rigor with strong technical creativity. An ideal candidate will have: Strong experience building complex web applications with React and TypeScript, ideally including the use of a centralized state management system like Redux or MobX. An interest in performance tuning and optimization is also a plus. Experience with -- and a strong demonstrated passion for -- building interactive 2D or 3D graphical environments, either on the web or in a native context. Strong desire to challenge the technical gap that exists between the rich environments and detailed interaction of modern games and the web. The ability to jump in and make progress on different levels of the web stack as needed. You absolutely do not need to be an expert at everything, but you should be comfortable learning and extending beyond your core domain. In addition to React, TypeScript, and Redux, other technologies and tools that we work with include: Node, Python, PostgreSQL, Mapbox, Google Cloud Platform, Storybook, and Gitlab CI/CD RELATED TOPICS For additional context, here are some other (non-required) topics and technologies that relate closely to our work. If you find one or more of your interests on this list, you’ll likely enjoy the kinds of challenges that we focus on: Next generation web technologies, including advanced 2D and 3D web graphics (Canvas, WebGL, WebGPU) and WebAssembly Game engines (Unity, Unreal) and engine design Simulation of complex systems, both quantitative/numerical and qualitative/graphical Performance sensitive design, measurement, and optimization The design of complex data pipelines and data ecosystems BENEFITS Careers at ACTUAL come with a competitive salary, meaningful equity, and a suite of comprehensive benefits including platinum-level health plans with fully-paid family coverage, 401(k), professional development budget, a home office/co-working stipend, and more.
