Software Engineer (Front End)

Who are we?

We’re MayStreet, based in the Chelsea district of Manhattan.  We’re building the next generation of capital markets technology.  Global capital markets are an ocean of fast moving, interrelated and complex data.  Historically its been nearly impossible for all but a select few firms to make use of much of this data.  MayStreet solves this problem by managing collection, storage and API access to uniquely high quality data sets.  

Who are you?

You are a front-end ninja with experience building high performance, data-intensive web applications. You embrace modular, reusable view components, and frown upon spaghetti code. You love writing utilities to ease future development and understand when to use an existing library/framework instead. You also have expertise in client-server communication, and able to pick up little chunks of server-side development when necessary.

But what do all these mean specifically?  

It means you should:

  • Have a Computer Science degree (or equivalent) and minimum 2 years experience in front-end development
  • Have a strong understanding of JavaScript and common DOM API
  • Understand asynchronous technology like AJAX, Promises, etc.
  • Be familiar with at least 1 front-end JavaScript framework: React, Backbone, Angular, Amber, Vue, etc. And understand the pros and cons of this framework
  • Be familiar with Git
  • Be a self-starter and good communicator

It would be even better if you:

  • Have experience building non-trivial single page applications
  • Have experience with TypeScript, SASS/Stylus, and ES6
  • Are familiar with automating your workflow using Gulp, Grunt
  • Have experiences in backend development using Python, C#, or C++
