Lead Front End Engineer

Stardog, the leading Enterprise Knowledge Graph platform, turns data into knowledge to power more effective digital transformations. Industry leaders including Bayer, Bosch, eBay, NASA, and Raytheon use Stardog to create a flexible data layer that can support countless applications. One of Fast Company's prestigious Most Innovative Companies, Stardog is a fast-growing venture-backed company headquartered in Arlington, VA with a globally distributed team.

Stardog Studio is the face of the Stardog Platform. It provides an IDE-like experience for Knowledge Engineers and developers to create data models, integrate data, execute and debug queries, and manage Stardog itself.

But as more enterprises adopt Knowledge Graphs and Knowledge Graph-based technology, the scope of what the Studio product should provide is expanding. New personas are being introduced to the Knowledge Graph, and we are designing and building new ways for technical and non-technical users to explore, understand, design, and build their knowledge graphs.

As our vision expands, so must our team. We're looking for a talented individual to be a new team lead and work alongside the technical architect of Stardog Studio and the Product Manager to help guide that part of the overall Studio product. You will be responsible for coordinating the team, conducting 1:1's, managing sprints, mentoring your teammates, as well as designing and building new features. You should expect to spend a lot of time engineering, maybe even the majority, but the responsibilities of being the lead means you will be in meetings. You can expect to spend between 10 and 40% of your time on those responsibilities.

Studio is written with Typescript using React, so we're expecting you to be familiar with those technologies. Bonus points if you're familiar with Node.js, Redux, and Webpack. Even more of a bonus if you know Sass, or just have some background in UX and design and are familiar with tools like Figma or Sketch.

No degree? No problem. Having a piece of paper with some fancy words on it like "Computer Science" is great, but not a requirement. You can be an engineer without an engineering degree. What we're looking for is an experienced engineer, who has guided a team before, to come in, work hard, and be passionate about solving our user's problems. We are looking for real engineering work as well as demonstrable experience and skills in a leadership capacity.

This is primarily a remote position. You should be comfortable with, and have experience working remotely. You must have strong communication skills as much of our interactions will be over email, chat, and PR where it's harder to get your point across. The rest of the team is in the EST (UTC-5) time zone, so the closer the time zone alignment, the better.

We will expect to see code! Don't be shy about sharing your work. You can even check out some of ours.
