At Dgraph, we believe that graph databases should be easy to use for everyone so we are building a Graph Database that not only performs and scales, but also it doesn’t force developers to learn a new language: you can use GraphQL.
We are looking to hire front end engineers with experience building web applications, using any framework such as React / VueJS. Familiarity with GraphQL would be a major positive. We expect you to be comfortable with web technologies, building and maintaining a well tested library of components, and wearing many hats.
Within 30 days you should be comfortable contributing small features and solving bugs the various React applications at Dgraph, including Ratel, an Open Source tool for managing Dgraph, as well as contribute to Slash GraphQL.
Within 60 days you should be able to participate in reviews, and help guide those who are new to the team. Code reviews are an important tool at Dgraph, both to improve the quality of code, as well as an important way to transfer knowledge. You should be able to contribute to critical architecture discussions and API design. You should be comfortable with identifying bugs and repairing systems that are not working in production.
Within 90 days you should be able to manage large features independently. Given a broad task, you should be able to scope it out, build it and ensure that it’s working in production. You should feel comfortable helping others in the team when they need help. You should also be comfortable chipping away at technical debt on the project.
