What we need
We are looking for a frontend developer to strengthen our UI team behind ahrefs.com. with ReasonReact as the base of the technology stack. You will be closely working with our designers and QA to build an ergonomic user interface.
Proficiency and experience in ReasonML will be appreciated, otherwise, a strong inclination to intensively learn it in the short term
Elasticsearch experience is a plus
Experience with other functional and statically-typed languages (Elm, OCaml, F#, Haskell, Scala, etc.) is a plus
In this role, you are expected to:
Test for cross-browser, cross-platform, and cross-device compatibility
Understand business needs and user behaviour, and propose UI/UX improvement
Write clean & modular code
Follow modern web best practices
Bonus points for not messing up Git rebase
If your preference is leaning towards functional languages on the server side, you may want to consider our OCaml position instead.
Who we are
Fairsearch is a search engine created by the Ahrefs team, which is behind one of the leading SEO toolsets worldwide. We’ve been crawling the entire web 24/7 since 2010, storing petabytes of information about live websites and backlinks.
We’re now looking to form the core product team for Fairsearch.
We are a lean and robust team who strongly believe that better technology leads to better solutions for real-world problems. We worship functional languages and static typing, extensively employ code generation and meta-programming, value code clarity and predictability, and are constantly seeking to automate repetitive tasks and eliminate boilerplate, guided by DRY and following KISS. If there is any new technology that will make our life easier, we’ll be the first to give it a try. We solve problems at all levels, starting from simplifying overloaded UI, removing code bloat in middleware and tracking bugs all the way down to CPU.
We rely heavily on open-source code as the only viable way to build maintainable system and contribute back.
Our motto is, "First do it, then do it right, then do it better."
