Your Impact

As a Lead UI Engineer, you will build high-quality software delivering feature sets that delight customers while driving the UI architecture and backend orchestration layer towards our aspirational goal of everything being ‘well-crafted’. You will work with product, design, and the other engineers on your team to drive clarity into the UI design and development process.

What You’ll Do

  • Be part of an autonomous, cross-functional team designing, building and operating strategic, user-focused feature sets.
  • Work on a modern ‘micro-frontend’ architecture designed to facilitate the development of high-quality software across multiple high-velocity, independent teams.
  • Build a highly responsive Document Viewer that supports multiple native file types (PDF, Excel, Video, etc.) while providing easy-to-use facilities to augment the data with complex, domain-specific work product.
  • Create an intuitive facility for users to build complex search queries that remain responsive while spanning terabytes of data.

Lead Responsibilities:

  • Help lesser experienced team members decompose problems into subparts (i.e. divide and conquer) and understand how the parts synthesize into a solution.
  • Maintain a well-groomed backlog.
  • Coordinate with Product Management to ensure dependencies can be satisfied across teams and functionality.
  • Using technical or business context, mentor engineers by turning ambiguity into clarity.

Who You Are

  • 7+ years of front-end development experience.
  • 2+ years prior experience technically leading UI centric development projects.
  • Advanced JavaScript/ES6 knowledge, 5+ years of SPA development using modern UI frameworks and advanced CSS techniques.
  • Enjoy the challenges of architecting a ‘micro-frontend’ architecture that does not compromise UX and end-user performance SLAs.
  • Experience designing and implementing a layered application architecture that can be easily changed to accommodate evolving business requirements.
  • Experience designing and communicating external and internal architectural perspectives of well-encapsulated systems.

Even Better If You Have…

  • Prior experience in startup environments delivering high-quality solutions.
  • Prior experience using Feature or Release Toggles as a code branching strategy.
  • Prior experience identifying, selecting and extending 3rd party components (commercial or open-source) that provide operational leverage.
  • Prior experience with Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment environments with an emphasis on a well-maintained testing pyramid.

Why Join DISCO’s Product Delivery Team

We intend to build a multi-billion dollar business and think you should come along for the ride because: 

  • We were the first movers to a cloud-based platform that has caused mass disruption within our market.
  • Our CEO is a true market visionary. He graduated with a computer science degree at the age of 15 and followed with a JD from Harvard Law School at the age of 19. His unparalleled insights into the fundamental issues in legal and the potential of technology and artificial intelligence to change our market at its core provide the guiding light for DISCO’s long-term strategy.
  • We believe that product delivery professionals including product managers, product designers and engineers differ from one another by at least a factor of 10. At DISCO, we only hire the top 1%, pay them well, and with equity, everyone has effectively been getting a raise each and every day. Given our product first mindset, product professionals are very much stars of the show. Our logo, the circle and square, represents the best lawyers and the best product professionals in the world.
  • We measure product delivery velocity by dollars of revenue per line of code, vs simply lines of code. This drives a very thoughtful and deliberate product design and development process that ensures we’re going to make money when we ship products. We hire many more product managers and designers per engineer than most companies to ensure that our engineers have a disambiguated product intent when they are building.
  • As a rule, we don’t commit to external product delivery dates as we believe that unnecessarily constrains our creativity from both a product and technology point of view.
  • At DISCO respect isn’t earned at DISCO it is assumed. Good humans inherently treat everyone respectfully. This is a very important concept at DISCO.
  • Given the high caliber of talent, the cutting-edge cloud-based technology stack, and thoughtful and novel product and design approach, you’ll find yourself learning at a rate you’ve not likely experienced in your career. Given that we only hire professionals that are passionate about their craft, you’ll truly enjoy building a great software product and get in the best “career shape” of your life.
  • Over the next 4 years, we’ll be growing our product delivery organization. There will be incredible growth opportunities along the way.
  • We use the “2 Pizza Team” organization design where small autonomous teams own a piece of a product or platform and ship software at rates comparable to a very lean and scrappy startup. We achieve consistency across these teams in the areas of design, product-wide use cases and technical concerns through a strategically focused set of overlay functions.
  • Finally, while we’re an incredibly
    fast-growing organization, as a rule, we do not work crazy long hours. We believe in continuous product delivery, continuous product planning and design, continuous regular sleep schedules, continuous regular vacation, and continuous fun if you’re passionate about your craft.

If you want to win while getting better than you’ve ever been, come to DISCO.
