This job is no longer accepting applications.

At Databricks, we are obsessed with enabling data teams to solve the world's toughest problems, from security threat detection to cancer drug development. We do this by building and running the world's best data and AI infrastructure platform, so our customers can focus on the high value challenges that are central to their own missions.

Founded in 2013 by the original creators of Apache Spark, Databricks has grown from a tiny corner office in Berkeley, California to a global organization with over 1000 employees. Thousands of organizations, from small to Fortune 100, trust Databricks with their mission-critical workloads, making us one of the fastest growing SaaS companies in the world.

Our engineering teams build technical products that fulfill real, important needs in the world. We constantly push the boundaries of data and AI technology, while simultaneously operating with the resilience, security and scale that is critical to making customers successful on our platform.

We develop and operate one of the largest scale software platforms. The fleet consists of millions of virtual machines, generating terabytes of logs and processing exabytes of data per day. At our scale, we regularly observe cloud hardware, network, and operating system faults, and our software must gracefully shield our customers from any of the above.

As a Senior Frontend Engineer, you will work closely with your team and product management to bring that delight through a great user experience. We are seeking engineers with a track record of being customer-obsessed, who can build an elegant user experience for the enterprise customers to process data at a massive scale. You'll set the foundation for how we build robust, scalable, and delightful products.

Below Are Some Example Teams You Can Join:

Clusters UI: Build the compute fabric powering all the workloads executed on the platform and the services necessary for managing Apache Spark workloads. The team also provides Databricks' customers with fast and easy ways to provision Spark clusters, and empower advanced use cases that enable cloud features, services, and data sources.

Delta Pipelines: The mission of this team is to enable customers to successfully deploy, test & upgrade pipelines and eliminate operational burdens for managing and building high quality data pipelines. The UI is critical to the success of this product. It sets the tone for the simplicity and intuitiveness of configuring and monitoring these pipelines.

Enterprise Platform: Offer a simple and powerful experience for onboarding and managing all of their data teams across 10ks of users on the Databricks platform. We do this by building reliable, scalable services and infrastructure with intuitive UIs and by delivering high-impact, cross-cutting projects that drive the "land and expand" strategy for enterprise customers.

Redash: Provide a great SQL-centric data exploration and visualization experience on Databricks, leveraging Redash, the most popular open-source project in this area. With Redash, we enable Databricks users to explore, query, visualize and share data using SQL, to develop insights and make data-driven decisions without the need to master complex software

Workspace: The Databricks Workspace provides an interactive environment for collaborative data projects at massive scale with an easy path to production. Data engineers, analysts, ML practitioners, and data scientists use the workspace for the full lifecycle from loading data, visualizing results, creating statistical models, and deploying as production artifacts. The Workspace is a SaaS service that is used by hundreds of thousands of data scientists daily.

What we look for:

  • 5+ years of experience with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Experience leading large multi-quarter efforts with a demonstrated customer or business impact
  • Passion for user experience and design and a deep understanding of front-end architecture
  • Comfortable working towards a multi-year vision with incremental deliverables
  • Driven by delivering customer value and impact
  • Experience with modern JavaScript frameworks (e.g., React, Angular, VueJs/Ember)
  • Familiarity with server-side web technologies is a plus(eg: Node.js, Java, Python, Scala, C#, C++,Go, JVM)
  • Knowledge of (and a passion for) current trends and best practices in front-end architecture, including performance, accessibility, security and usability
  • Experience building large-scale products
