Job Summary:As a Senior Software Engineer, you will focus on engineering beautiful user interfaces and interactions. You will use your deep UI engineering and creative skills to take an influential role in iterating and continuously deploying new features, functionality, and products to our customers. You will be an important part of a lean DevOps and automation culture where we’ll be looking for you to collaborate with the backend and product teams to drive UI architecture, champion UI code quality, and to build optimized experiences for our end-users. We want someone that has grown up through the web software development ranks - possessing 8-10 years’ experience in designing and architecting highly scalable and performant web applications while doing highly creative, detail oriented front-end web development.
This person should also have home-grown Design System experience, having collaborated tightly with creative teams to champion and influence component reusability, maintainability, and configurability across a diverse UI portfolio. The right person should also blend his/her engineering abilities with a sense of pixel-perfect craftsmanship, turning user stories, wireframes, and prototypes into fully functional UI components and applications.
While The Walt Disney Company is a large company, ideally, we’d like if you have some previous experience in a U.S. startup environment and be comfortable performing multiple roles. We strive to get things done quickly, at high quality, and we are committed to the agile methodology. Our work is guided by lean principles (looking at value and looking for waste; not doing anything ‘for the sake of doing it’).
We’re looking for a passionate, impactful, technical leader who wants to come here to do their very best work and make their mark, add their chapter to the long and storied history of The Walt Disney Company. Someone who holds themselves and their teammates accountable in a professional, collaborative manner. A collaborative technologist who seeks to bring the best out in themselves and those around them. Someone who can provide a fresh perspective and innovative insight to our initiatives.
