REMOTE Front-end Engineer, React

At Manifold, we’re creating the world’s largest independent cloud marketplace. Using our CLI and web GUI, we help developers build large applications powered by independent cloud services. Made by developers who care, for developers who care.

We are looking for an experienced, collaborative front-end engineer to help us develop our quickly-evolving web platform and iterate on new features important to developers and cloud service providers.

Our partially distributed engineering team is fun-loving, knowledgeable, and extremely productive. We’re organized to let you explore and grow a variety of skills and capabilities, with many chances to create a significant impact. Many of us have strong ties to the open-source world, and have experience building tools at companies like Heroku, Red Hat, and Canonical.

We value diversity and supporting a distributed culture. Gender diversity is currently about one quarter. About half of the company work outside of the home Halifax, Canada office.


  • Improve your skills in an engineering culture that encourages you and the entire company to improve as engineers, teams, and people.
  • Be a model for building well-architected, performant, well-tested, and understandable code.
  • Prevent and manage technical debt. Help us find the right corners to cut for speed, and the right problems to invest in for maintainability.
  • Be passionate about our mission, and help us imagine Manifold’s future. Work closely with design and product in short design-first iteration.
  • Be curious. Learn, practice, share, and improve our knowledge and best practices in technologies, security, engineering, design and collaboration.


  • Strong communication skills with a team centric approach to discussion and decision-making. Empathy and respect for others.
  • Experience deploying and operating server-side code that could have used a service like Manifold.
  • Solid grasp of CSS principles and semantic markup.
  • Expertise in Javascript, REST APIs, React and managing state. Knowledge of Redux, Redux-Saga, GraphQL, and other parts of the React ecosystem is also very valuable.
  • Full command of Git, GitHub, the terminal, continuous deployment and integration, and other modern fundamentals.
  • Experience extracting front-end assets from design programs like Sketch or InVision is very nice to have.
  • Experience working in a distributed team is very nice to have.
  • Our backend and CLI are written in Go; Go experience is nice to have.
