Job Description:

About FreshBooks FreshBooks is a leading cloud-based SaaS accounting software designed with one goal: to help small business owners grow. We reached unicorn status after raising our valuation to more than $1 billion and continue to scale our business to serve business owners, their clients, and accountants in more than 160 countries worldwide. FreshBookers are found all over the globe, and we know that different folks thrive in different working environments: Remote, onsite, and everything in between, you ll find it with us. The Opportunity - Senior Front-End Engineer FreshBooks is looking for an experienced

Senior Front-End Engineer
who will play a hands-on role in driving further expansion of the platform s features, globalize our offering and scale it to having over 1 million users. Your (technical) contributions will not only impact millions of small business owners but their customers too. Our team is dedicated to the business owners and accountants who use these products, making every effort to make the complex, simple, and create software that works better than they expect. Engineering at FreshBooks:
we are a globally distributed (mostly remote working) team of technically astute, honest and driven Engineers who are passionate about developing meaningful products. We support and trust each team to constantly drive incremental improvements together. There is a no-blaming culture - individuals and teams are encouraged to experiment, knowing that not every experiment will work - and open communication and active listening are found at all levels. We also care about each other, and make time to have fun together, too. Our department consists of 15 different teams with more than 120 people, all working together on one great product. We also value innovation and know that creativity needs space and time. Every Engineer at FreshBooks has 25 innovation days per year to focus on making improvements or developing something new, something they wish to build, that is outside their regular responsibilities and is completely driven by their interests and curiosity. Ways of working:
Our Software Engineers are E2E involved in the software development lifecycle meaning you will design, develop, test and deploy features as you go. We use agile principles here: two-week iterations, hosting various ceremonies to keep our team in sync (eg. grooming, planning, retrospectives, daily stand ups) and make close to 50 releases per month. Tech stack:
Python, Flask, ElasticSearch, EmberJS, MySQL, Google Pubsub, Rundeck and we run everything in Kubernetes on GCP. If you are looking to work in a scale-up like atmosphere where you can still make a significant impact on the product and customers, but within a company with a solid financial backing, history and respected brand, then this could be the right place for you.

    • Understanding of SOLID principles and how to write clean and testable code
    • Experience working with REST APIs (resource-oriented REST)
    • Experience with CI/CD
    • Passionate about applying new technologies, architectures, and methodologies to improve the code and Engineering organization
    • Deep knowledge of building scalable applications and system architecture
    • Able to provide technical leadership and direction and mentoring to less experienced colleagues Our Commitments to You At FreshBooks each person knows their opinion is valued, and can see their impact on the lives of over 10 million small business owners around the world.
