Hello!

Thanks for checking out our job description for a remote Frontend Engineer at Impala. We felt a little bit impersonal just just diving straight in with words like "revolutionising" and "disrupting".

As such, we apologise in advance for any clichés, tropes or sudden-insecurity-driven-panic-attacks that you might find in the description below.

What is Impala?

Impala is making the process of booking hotel rooms ridiculously easy. We're providing hotels with a powerful data distribution infrastructure that transforms the way hotel guests across the world browse, book, stay and pay. Think Twilio for Travel.

We launched our original API product in January 2019 and since then have grown at - quite frankly - a ridiculous old clip. Our technology is already installed in hundreds of hotels worldwide, on six continents and categorises more than 1 billion data points. This has allowed us to bring forward our ambition to revolutionise the hotel distribution market and help empower millions of people across the globe.

We are a growing remote-first team of exceptional people split across engineering, product and commercial who make up a thriving, active, supportive community.

Where is Impala going?

We're supported by some of the most respected investors in the business, the early-stage backers behind Deliveroo, PillPack, SecretEscapes, Zoopla, Trivago, Monzo, Travelperk, Transferwise, Airbnb, GetYourGuide, Omio, Spotify and more!

They're on board because of the shared opportunity we have before us - revolutionising a 1.6 trillion dollar market that's been out-of-date for 20 years.

They also share our vision of a future in which travel is seamlessly connected and relentlessly inventive.

Our vision is that within the next two years 10% of hotel bookings worldwide will flow through Impala technology, and the product that we're building will support the entire ecosystem of travel technology (we already have over a thousand companies signed up).

Anyone travelling anywhere will interact with products powered by Impala and to achieve this we're growing the team extensively within the next year. Now is the most exciting time to be joining Impala as we go through a large push to grow and scale, both as a service and a community!

A brief overview of what you will be doing here:

You will be a key contributor to new frontend services, ensuring a high level of quality for both our code and our user experience. Your role will involve analysing and optimising the product and technical performance of features to continually improve customer experience. You will work closely with the Impala design team to create an enjoyable user experience.

You should join us if:

  • You have strong experience and expertise with ReactJS and good knowledge of JS fundamentals.
  • You are comfortable working closely with product owners, designers, UX experts and the ability to translate their designs/requirements into maintainable, componentised UIs.
  • You have experience with the design and consumption of REST APIs.
  • You have knowledge and ability across the stack, and are able to contribute to and build out backend services where necessary.

Where will you work?

This is a remote position. This means you can work from anywhere +/- 2 Hours of London timezone (and less than a 3 hour flight).

We are a remote-first company, with a fully distributed engineering team! This was a very deliberate, natural choice, as we prioritise preserving work-life balance and accommodating the best people in Europe, while also fostering diversity.

We have loads of remote initiatives to ensure every new member of the team is fully set up!

  • We provide an additional generous Personalised Workspace Budget for things like monitors, keyboards, desk chairs and headphones.
  • We offer an office stipend - you can furnish their home office with a generous £150 monthly stipend (coffee, snacks, wifi bills, cleaning, desk equipment, plus anything in between) or we will pay for a co-working membership near where you live.
  • The full engineering team travels once a quarter to meet and socialise with the rest of the engineering team somewhere in Europe.
  • We offer a generous Social Budget for you to travel to London-based social events.
  • We have a dedicated Remote Experience Manager in the team, whose role is, among other things, to ensure everyone in the team's happiness, and help them feel integrated and empowered while working remotely.
  • We give each new team member a brand new high-spec laptop when they start, with a choice between a Thinkpad or Mac.

Please note, we only accept candidates in Western Europe because of timezone and travel time differences. We make no exceptions (we don't have time to, unfortunately!).

What you will get in return?

  • We reward Impalans with the most competitive salaries and regular reviews. Whether you're an individual contributor or you want to manage people, there are plenty of opportunities to develop your skills and boost your earning potential. We offer 3.5x the average annual UK raise, even if you remain within the same role.
  • We're in the top 14% of companies in the UK for the amount of holiday that we offer, at 36 days.
  • OneUnsick Day off per year, to keep up with proactive health admin - so you can finally sort that trip to the dentist and get those health screens that you never have time to do.
  • Flexible working options. With extended lunch break options, Recess Hour, and loads more.
  • We invest in your development with a generous £1,000 Professional Development budget per year, and we will support you to realise your potential.
  • Fun and inclusive monthly social events, from go-karting to mini golf to karaoke to virtual pub quiz.
  • Access to Perkbox.
  • A super strong and proactive focus on mental and physical wellbeing. From Vitality health insurance, to Sanctus, to a monthly gym membership reimbursement, plus heaps more.
  • A generous Loved Ones Budget - £750 annually to get your friends & family over to visit you once a year, no matter how near or far from home you are based. (Engineering only)
  • Weekly10% Time. (Engineering only)

As Stripe looks beyond the API, we are hiring engineers to help build beautiful, usable interfaces for businesses building on top of Stripe. From constructing checkout workflows to routing money and making sophisticated reports, Stripe aims to provide great interfaces for understanding your business, fulfilling customers’ needs, and creating secure, usable payment forms. Stripe’s frontend libraries are loaded hundreds of times per second and account for tens of millions of dollars per day in online payments.

You might work on:

  • The new version of Stripe.js, Elements and Checkout. You’ll write code that Stripe’s users deploy to build powerful, performant, fraud-fighting checkout forms. Because Stripe.js runs in other people’s forms, globally, and across many different browsers, you’ll deal with tight performance constraints and bundle sizes. You’ll work on everything from build optimizations to API design to multi-frame platform abstractions to browser-specific animation tweaks, all in service of giving Stripe’s users less to worry about.
  • The Stripe Dashboard, which is Stripe’s single page application for running a business on the internet. What started out as a simple payments dashboard has grown to include business insights, account configuration and onboarding, security tools, Radar, Atlas, Billing, and every other product Stripe is building. Frontend engineers at Stripe work both on the platform for the Dashboard and on individual products themselves.
  • Support platform that powers our high-quality, high-touch support experience through products like live chat, click-to-call phone support, dynamic and contextual contact forms, and measure our success through quick customer satisfaction surveys.
  • Stripe’s vast array of internal tools, including Stripe Admin, used across teams to investigate merchants and charges, and Stripe Home, where Stripes go to learn about events, other Stripes, operating principles, and search our ever-growing internal knowledge base. Stripe amplifies its efficiency through investment in internal tools, and each of those tools has its own unique set of frontend engineering challenges and a tight feedback loop of approachable internal users.
  • Frontend experiences for Connect that make it as easy as possible to participate in the Internet economy and receive money online. Some of Stripe’s largest users are platforms that connect senders of payments with receivers of payments. Lyft connects riders to drivers, Kickstarter connects backers to projects, and Squarespace connects shoppers to online stores. All of them participate in doing business online, and all of them directly or indirectly use Stripe.

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Ideally 7+ years of experience shipping high-quality products
  • Empathy with the many different types of users who use Stripe’s UIs
  • An interest in building UIs with modern tools like ES6, React, Redux, PostCSS, Flow, and Webpack
  • An ability to think through customer requirements to come up with high-impact ways of quickly solving their problems
  • A passion about performance, accessibility, and API design
  • A high bar for quality of code and quality of user experience
  • Comfortability working in a large frontend codebase with many stakeholders
  • Attention to the details

What’s it like to work at Stripe?

Stripe is helping the internet fulfill its potential as a platform for economic progress by building software tools that accelerate global economic access and technological development. Stripe makes it easy to start, run and scale an internet business from anywhere in the world.

Stripe is, at its heart, an engineering company. To provide a missing pillar of core internet infrastructure, we hire people with a broad set of technical skills (and from a wide variety of backgrounds) who are ready to take on some of the most challenging problems in the industry – from reliably handling 100M API requests per day, to building adaptive machine learning as a result of years of data science and infrastructure work, and enabling entrepreneurs worldwide to start a global internet business.

We look at Stripe as a constant work in progress and the same is true of our people; for all of us, we believe the best is yet to come. We’re here to support each other in our curiosity and creativity – which we pursue through thoughtful discussion and knowledge-sharing among a diverse set of peers and colleagues.

We encourage all engineers to transition teams once every year and a half and also take on short-term projects with other teams across Stripe. This enables engineers to learn how different parts of Stripe work while also establishing stronger ties and cross-pollination between groups.

We contribute to existing open-source projects and the people working on them, and we release several tools as open-source.

We want to work in a company of warm, inclusive people who treat their colleagues exceptionally well. The kind of people who are committed to going out of their way to help other Stripes in the short-term and pushing them to improve over the long-term (by helping them to get better at what they do).

We’re a highly cross-functional organization and view that as part of the fun: we design our space to encourage as much collaboration as possible. We have long tables in the kitchen for a reason (to enable everyone to meet new people and learn from them). We also have a culture of transparency that we carry through to email communication, ensuring that Stripes all around the world have the information they need to make good local decisions.

In both our products and our people, we aim to reflect, represent and advocate for all of our users, globally. Our users transcend geography, culture and language; what we share, collectively, is a drive to create a fairer, more economically interconnected world.
