Front-End Web Engineer Lead

Your team:

You will join a multinational (7 nationalities) team of more than 10 engineers who are passionate about Web technologies, cool products, and tech memes. We build friendly and open communication within the team where everyone can state the opinion and affect the future of the team and the products we work with.

The job is located in our HQs in Bangkok
, Thailand. However, we are able to provide and support a remote working set up for the first 6 months from your home country and with a relocation allowance to successfully move and settle in Bangkok. In order to build a world-class team, Amity welcomes people from all over the world.

About the Web Team:

  • Here is the main tech stack used by the Web Team: JavaScript (React.js), HTML/CSS, TypeScript, Ant Design, MobX, Redux, Jest.js, Electron, Flow.js, styled-components, Apollo GraphQL, and more.
  • We put emphasis on the quality of the code, where each piece of the code will be reviewed by at least one another Web Engineer.
  • Each Web Engineer works day to day in a small cross-functional team per product (Feature Team), each of which has a dedicated Web, iOS, Android, and Backend Engineers, QA, and PO.
  • The work is typically organized into two-week sprints with daily stand-ups, sprint planning/grooming, and retrospective.
  • As members of the Web Team, we have a weekly meeting with the team to share our knowledge, experiences, or challenges with other Amity Web Engineers from different cross-functional teams.
  • As the Web Team, we maintain aligned syntax, security, and quality standards across all the Amity Web applications.

Your day-to-day:

  • You will be often required to deliver the most complicated core features of the product.
  • As a Lead, you will be responsible to maintain a horizontal view over the multiple projects of the product; make sure to maintain coherence between the different projects in both functionalities and technical approaches, and support their team in their implementation.
  • You will mentor and support your team in operational tasks such as defining processes for the team to collaborate as well as more hands-on tasks like setting up CI for the projects, reviewing critical pull requests and so on.
  • As a Senior Engineer, you will be able to navigate through each project of the product with ease to operate on them by yourself when time is needed. Therefore, the position requires strong knowledge in Javascript and Typescript in general, but also a deep understanding of the codebase of each project.
  • You will drive the quality of the delivered web applications of the whole Product Line.
