Our Frontend Engineers are responsible for developing high performance, responsive user interfaces for Circonus. The clean, intuitive, and beautiful user interfaces you build will play a critical role in the Circonus user experience -- allowing users to navigate through data and visually manipulate massive data sets to gain new insights. You’ll develop core front-end components of a fast, scalable, complex web application (JavaScript, HTML5, CSS, jQuery, and Vue.js) using your expert level knowledge of JavaScript. The sleek, beautiful results of your work make you an integral part of our team as you define, design, and develop new features, while improving existing ones. In particular, we’re seeking someone to help lead an effort to rewrite a legacy jQuery-based application with Vue.js. Prior experience with such a rewrite is strongly preferred - please mention it directly within your cover letter.

Circonus is a software company that is changing the way the world monitors both IT infrastructure and the business it powers. Our SaaS and on­-premise solutions enable companies to combine monitoring, alerting, event processing, and predictive analytics into a unified solution. Visualize any data, in any application, from any system, in real-time. Circonus scales from a single team to a worldwide organization that tracks thousands of devices analyzing millions of metrics. API driven automation empowers developers and makes operational teams incredibly efficient, while analytics drive insights that improve organization-wide performance. We enjoy a global reach, but our customers primarily cluster on the East Coast, California, and to a lesser degree, Europe. Our success stems from (a) delivering an industry-leading product and (b) an obsession with customer satisfaction. Culturally, we operate like a startup. Small, agile teams making quick decisions and short, iterative cycle times. We relish our core values of respect, integrity, value and growth, among others. This is probably the kind of place where you want to work. All of our positions include a discretionary PTO policy, generous employer covered health and dental insurance, employer matched 401K Plan and more.
