Job Description

Hi, we're Knack, a no-code platform used by thousands of customers — from non-profits to the world’s biggest companies — to easily build custom apps, workflows, and databases.

We're looking for a nice and brilliant front-end engineer to help us meet the enormous challenges around making it easy to do useful things with data.

This is a 100% remote role, with a flat culture that gives you the autonomy to define how you can do the best work of your career.


In this role, you will:

  • Work with Vue and ES6 to build and maintain Knack product features.
  • Improve and implement UI through design libraries, accessible markup, and modular CSS.
  • Propose and implement architectural approaches for new features and refactoring legacy code.
  • Improve the quality and confidence of a complex codebase with tests, audits, and performance metrics.
  • Code every day. Although we expect technical and product leadership, this is primarily an executional role.
  • Be an inspiring and supportive teammate by participating in PR reviews, pair programming, active feedback, idea generation, teaching, learning, and in general being a delightful human being.

We’re looking for someone who is:

  • A problem solver. You aren't afraid to go deep, experiment, learn on the fly, and do the work.
  • Experienced as a meaningful contributor to a complex front-end architecture at scale.
  • An expert in JavaScript and modern reactive frameworks: preferably Vue, or a desire to leverage React experience to master Vue.
  • Humble but opinionated. You have lots of ideas, yet you are happy to shift directions when a better path emerges. You take your work much more seriously than you take yourself.
  • Proactive and flexible. We're early in our process of building out this team and process. We need someone willing to use the best of their experience to advocate for best practices, but  also open to embracing a bit of chaos along the way.
  • An active collaborator. You want feedback on your work early and often, and you get a kick out of a collaborative process because it challenges you to do better work.
  • Engaging beyond 1s and 0s. You understand that empathizing with our customers, building relationships with your co-workers, and going deep on the product makes you a better teammate and a better engineer.
  • Hungry for meaningful work, and space to do it. Knack is a complex product in a complex space and the work is extremely challenging - but also deeply rewarding. Knack makes a major impact in the work of thousands of companies and organizations.

Our Stack

  • Front-end: ES6, Vue, Vuex, Vue Router, Webpack
  • Components & Design: Storybook, Atomic design, Saas, Post CSS, CSS Modules
  • Testing: Mocha Unit Tests, Cypress.js, Ghost Inspector
  • Back-end: Node.js, Mongo, SQL, Redis, AWS

About Knack

  • Knack makes it easy for anyone to build applications and workflows to make their data useful. Our customers use Knack to run their processes, departments, or even their entire companies.
  • We've been growing steadily since 2012 as we’ve built our team, perfected our product, and nailed our product-market fit.

So how are we different?

  • We’re bootstrapped: we’ve had to build something our customers actually pay for. This changes how you do things.
  • We’re 100% remote: and have been from the beginning. Every decision we’ve made has been based around optimizing our remote operations.
  • We’re all a little weird: and we like it that way. We’re more than just chat avatars; we’ve all gotten to know each other, have grown together, and love working with each other.
  • We enjoy the journey: we’re in this for the long haul. We’re not chasing an exit or the next round of funding. We’re building something we’re proud of and want to keep improving on.
