Job Description

As a Frontend Engineer at Enigma, your mission is to craft new applications, features, and data manipulation tools that haven't been seen (or even attempted) in the browser. You look at browsers as a platform, and are adept at navigating the stickier bits to make sure that both design and functionality work exactly as intended, regardless of browser­-specific limitations.

About you:

You have a deep understanding of the client­-side framework landscape, insist upon implementing test coverage for everything you do, and do not think of semantics and accessibility as afterthoughts in the development process. You have strong opinions about front­-end frameworks but are egoless in advocating for them and will change your mind in the face of convincing arguments. You’re passionate about data’s impact on the world and you are curious, generous and can hustle in a rapidly growing environment.

The role:

At Enigma, we are passionate about unlocking the potential of data­­ both public and private. We build breathtaking, performant interfaces and, as we expand our capabilities, we need frontend engineers equally capable of pushing the limits of the browser. You will have the chance to grow quickly within our fast-growing company. Your role may evolve as we do, but you don’t fear change; instead, you see opportunity. Strong communication skills are a requirement, as you will be required to work in a highly collaborative setting.

Qualities we value:

  • Carefully considers design, architecture, and code quality
  • Can demonstrate experience with Javascript and is familiar with React and ES2015 functionality
  • Loves stepping into the shoes of our users, and can think strategically about how we deliver value to clients, through effective user interface design and implementation
  • Has the desire and ability to solve open­-ended problems in an elegant, scalable manner
  • Approaches testing, quality assurance, and delivery in a focused manner.

Our Story:

Enigma is a rapidly growing enterprise technology company based in the Flatiron neighborhood of New York City. We are Series B funded, partnering with some of the best investors in the world: New Enterprise Associates, Two Sigma Ventures, Comcast Ventures, Crosslink Capital, American Express Ventures, and others.

Founded in 2012, Enigma was started based on the realization that there was tremendous potential in using public data to understand how the world works, but that it was untapped because the data is highly fragmented and disconnected. Enigma set out to change that by building and organizing one of the largest collections of public data in the world, and our big coming out party was winning TechCrunch Disrupts Battlefield in 2013. Our vision has remained steadfast, we want to empower people to interpret, and improve, the world around them. However, we have expanded our ability to realize this vision by combining our massive public data repository with an ecosystem of software and tools designed to link, resolve, enhance and apply data to help global-scale companies take on some of their hardest problems, ranging from preventing money laundering to ensuring patient safety.

We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is an affirmative action employer. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status.
