Frontend Engineering

Staff Frontend Performance Engineer

OldRobo is looking for a Software Engineer with experience in behind-the-scenes JavaScript to get the job done. We love engineers who are more passionate about reading stack traces. We love performance optimization, writing unit tests, improving maintainability, and iterating on best-practices with the rest of the frontend teams. Communication and collaboration skills are a must.


You know the weirdest parts of JavaScript and love working with it anyway.

You have extensive experience working with performance profiling and debugging tools in your web browser of choice.

You love keeping up to date with the evolving capabilities of JavaScript, but know when to temper that excitement with caution.

You’ve worked with React (or at least understand why it’s important). Familiarity with Redux will also come in handy.

You’ve been working with front end frameworks and libraries professionally for 3+ years (and have contributed to some is a big plus.)

Diving into a new system to understand mysterious behavior excites you, and the phrase “things are slow, but only sometimes” sounds like the start of a great adventure.

You write an understandable, testable code with an eye towards maintainability and scalability.

You are a strong communicator and are equally comfortable talking with your immediate team, other frontend engineers, or even backend infrastructure engineers.

You are ready to learn, but just as excited to teach.

You understand that the perfect solution is informed by the people who will be building on your work, rather than being purely dependent on technical merits. Empathy is a feature.

You have a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or a related field, or equivalent training, fellowship, or work experience.

OldRobo has a positive, diverse, and supportive culture—we look for people who are curious, inventive, and work to be a little better every single day. In our work together, we aim to be smart, humble, hardworking, and, above all, collaborative. If this sounds like a good fit for you, why not say hello?

Come do the best work of your life here at OldRobo.
