We are looking for an experienced, collaborative front-end engineer to inspire us, teach us, and bring our React architecture and coding forward.
Our partially distributed engineering team is fun-loving, knowledgeable, and extremely productive. We’re organized to let you explore and grow a variety of skills and capabilities, with many opportunities to make a significant impact. Many of us have strong ties to the open-source world, and have experience building tools at companies like Heroku, Red Hat, and Canonical.

- Be a model and mentor for building well-architected, performant, well-tested, and understandable code.
- Prevent and manage technical debt. Help us find the right corners to cut for speed, and the right problems to invest in for maintainability.
- Be passionate about our mission, and help us imagine Manifold’s future. Work closely with design and product in short design-first iteration.
- Be curious. Learn, practice, share, and improve our knowledge and best practices in technologies, security, engineering, design and collaboration.
What you’ll need
- Strong communication skills with a team centric approach to discussion and decision making. Empathy and respect for others.
- Experience deploying and operating server-side code that could have used a service like Manifold.
- Full command of Git, GitHub, the terminal, continuous deployment and integration, and other modern fundamentals.
- Experience working in a distributed team is very nice to have.
- Our backend and CLI are written in Go; Go experience is nice to have.
We’re looking for
- Technical Leadership
- Guidance and mentorship
A little bit about us
At Manifold, we help developers discover and use innovative tools and technologies; so you can focus on building, not managing, your applications. Each new cloud service we use today introduces complexity in the form of another bill, account to manage, credential to secure, and code to deploy.
Manifold allows you to build and offer cloud services to developers without having to worry about billing, identity, and credential distribution (An example of one such service: JawsDB).
We’re a small, remote-friendly venture-backed company based in Halifax, Canada with teams in Toronto and San Francisco. With a shared passion for making developers lives easier and our backgrounds reflect that, having worked at the likes of Red Hat, Heroku, and Salesforce.
Are you interested?
We believe in having people work from where they are most productive. If that happens to be in our offices in Halifax, Canada, or in San Francisco, welcome! We’d love to have you. If you are remote, you are also welcome! We strongly prefer candidates who are in a timezone roughly within 4 hours of the Eastern time zone.
We offer competitive compensation, equity opportunities, and excellent health care options, with additional perks such as a yearly professional development allowance.
