Software Engineer, Web Platform

Convex - New York, NY

Convex is a serverless infrastructure company that provides an end-to-end application data solution including a database, backend and client libraries for web developers. Our mission is to fundamentally change how software is built on the Internet and who gets to build it. We are looking for people who are passionate about improving the development experience for frontend engineers and who have strong opinions on what kinds of tools and workflows will remove barriers to getting things done.

What Excites Us:

The success of Convex depends on having an extremely convenient, ergonomic and expressive developer interface. Our initial developer surface area includes libraries for web development in both React and vanilla JavaScript/TypeScript. We also execute user-defined functions in V8 containers server-side to process database queries and need to do so securely and efficiently.

We're particularly interested in Web Platform and Client Infrastructure engineers with a passion both for developer experience and for the interaction between frontend libraries and the backend. An ideal candidate for the job would have deep experience with modern web frameworks and standards, packaging tools, and JavaScript library development. There is tremendous scope for motivated frontend developers at the company both to develop our user surface areas, website and dashboard, as well as to influence our query model and developer experience.

Qualifications:

  • BS in Computer Science or equivalent industry experience

  • 5+ years as a web platform, client infrastructure, or frontend infrastructure engineer experienced with TypeScript and well aware of the JavaScript ecosystem

  • Tasteful API design and experience in modern web frameworks and standards, packaging tools, and JavaScript library development

  • Ability to create elegant maintainable code
