To start with, you will be responsible for everything frontend at Squad right from our latest responsive website to our new customer-facing products to being an instrumental component in building frontend culture at Squad. We are looking for someone who can be the manager of one from the word go.
We believe that in early-stage startups, there are no Engineering teams. There are only Product Teams. What it means is that not only are you responsible for 'how does it work technically', but also 'should we make this?', 'How well should we build this?', 'Is this what the user/customer needs?'. We like to focus on outcomes vs output.
You will work in cross-functional teams - Strong products aren't built with engineering silos. We truly believe in engineers collaborating within a cross-functional setup & contributing with valuable inputs towards the product outcomes.
If you are interested, Kevin from our Engineering Team wrote a blog that offers a comprehensive window to the coding culture and ethics at Squad: Squad takes the Joel Test.
