Are you an experienced fullstack/frontend engineer? Smartly.io welcomes you to play a pivotal role within Team Graham, contributing to the development of our cutting-edge Snapchat product.

Our Snapchat tool is reshaping the advertising landscape by empowering marketers to effortlessly scale their ad creation process using automation. Our mission is to make publishing on Snapchat intuitive, efficient, and enjoyable. With features like built-in reporting and automatic optimization, our product elevates advertising campaigns to new levels of success.

The project is ever-growing, robust and rigorously tested with a solid foundation, serving hundreds of customers every day. Our commitment to ongoing feature enhancements and expanding capabilities keeps us at the forefront of innovation. With our state-of-the-art Continuous Integration tools, we achieve multiple daily production deployments, maintaining agility and staying ahead of the curve.

Team Graham operates with a high degree of autonomy, closely collaborating with pioneering advertisers and our in-house campaign managers. This collaborative synergy ensures swift feedback loops, enabling us to continuously refine our creations.

What We're Building and Your Role:

Our product consists of a micro-frontend, featuring complex forms implemented in React and TypeScript, paired with a backend service offering an API and background processing. The backend, orchestrated on Kubernetes, is crafted with Node.js and TypeScript, and is powered by technologies such as PostgreSQL, Redis, and RabbitMQ.

On the frontend, you'll tackle the challenge of making the ad creation process as seamless as possible while adhering to Snapchat's unique complexities. You'll also maintain a consistent look-and-feel across Smartly.io's supported platforms by utilizing various internal frameworks, components and libraries.

On the backend, you'll solve the puzzle of scaling our background processing while adhering to Snapchat API constraints like rate limits and validations. Your tasks extend to integrating to both internal and external APIs as well as building sophisticated frontend and background services that scale. You’ll also get to work in close-collaboration with other engineering teams.

Skills and Experience We're Seeking:

We're on the lookout for individuals with a growth-oriented mindset, good communication skills, and the ability to excel independently. If you bring solid hands-on experience with React, TypeScript, Node, PostgreSQL, and Kubernetes, you could be our next team member. Whether you're a fullstack expert or a pure frontend master, we want to hear from you!

What We Offer:

Joining Smartly.io means becoming an integral part of our product's DNA. Every team member has a stake in our success, and your contributions will directly impact our customers and business growth.
