Senior Frontend Engineer
- Suzhou, Jiangsu, China
- Department: China
Tradeshift is a unicorn in the fintech industry. We are disrupting a typically stagnant environment by connecting companies of all sizes and providing them with the platform and network needed to create value from old processes like procurement, invoicing, payments, and workflow. We recognize that business is both messy and social - two revelations that have driven the development of Tradeshift, a platform for all your business interactions. We work hard and our teams have great freedom and responsibility to choose the best solutions, technologies and approaches to evolve the product to the next level.
We believe that being a global, multicultural company is a tremendous strength and we have people working from 18 different countries with hubs in Bucharest, Copenhagen, Kuala Lumpur, and San Francisco. We believe that if we truly focus on how to work distributed and collaborate across locations and (home) offices, we will not only enjoy work more but also build better products for our customers, and ultimately be a better company.
About The Role
We are looking for an experienced Senior Frontend Engineer who is never afraid of solving challenging problems and interested in identifying improvement opportunities and driving them. We expect that you know your way when designing, and implementing UI solutions, and be able to interact with the backend services through REST APIs in order to achieve that. We will provide you with ample opportunity to provide a ton of value, solve real problems and bring your own solutions to the table. Also, we have great autonomy and responsibility to choose the best solutions, technologies and approaches to take Tradeshift to the next level.
