The Front End Foundations team in Culture Amp’s Product Group owns the shared tools and frameworks that our product teams use to build the Culture Amp platform. This includes build and deploy automation based on Buildkite and AWS CDK, as well as a new React application framework based on Next.js. As a growing number of teams depend on these tools, Front End Foundations needs another Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) to design and build the unique blend of serverless infrastructure and front end architecture that powers them.

As a part of this team of amazing humans,

You will help to

  • Design, build, evolve, and maintain Culture Amp’s foundational front end ecosystem and underlying tools used by all its product engineering teams,
  • Own and drive changes that increase the productivity of Culture Amp engineers working on UI codebases,
  • Write documentation and provide support for people using your team’s products, and
  • Ultimately, create a great developer experience.

You should have

  • Interest or experience in serverless infrastructure automation (e.g. AWS Lambda and CDK),
  • Strong Node and browser-side JavaScript (in TypeScript) experience, to establish patterns for other engineers,
  • A demonstrated interest in “the back of the front end” (front end architecture, frameworks like Next.js, build and deploy tools, etc.), and
  • Familiarity with JavaScript tools and build systems (NPM/Yarn, Lerna, Webpack, Babel, TypeScript, etc.).

You should be someone who

  • Thinks deeply about systems – their edge cases, failure modes, and life cycles,
  • Knows their way around the modern front end ecosystem, and has worked on complex web applications,
  • Communicates thoughtfully, especially in technical writing for other engineers, a lover of good docs,
  • Is excited to learn new skills and technologies – there’s probably a lot you’ll need to learn before you feel fully productive in this role, and
  • Shares our passion for making a better world of work.

You should believe that creating well-tested, clean code is just as important for tools as it is for the application code. You should enjoy being surrounded by skilled engineers, learning from others, as well as contributing to their development.

Our teams are remote-friendly, and all embrace flexible working arrangements. We use GitHub to collaborate and review each other's code as pull requests. We deliver to production via continuous integration and delivery using Buildkite (or GitHub Actions where Buildkite is not a great fit).

We ensure you have the tools and support you need to thrive, both inside and outside of work:

  • A MacBook — for you to do great work where it suits you
  • Share options — it’s important to us that everyone is an owner and can share in our success
  • Excellent parental leave and in-work support program — for those starting or growing their family
  • Flexible working arrangements — wherever we can we aim to make work support the life you want to lead
  • Fun and inclusive digital and (in the future) in-person events

And most importantly: an opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives.
