Software Engineer, Frontend


Company Type

As a Frontend Engineer at Enigma, your mission is to craft new applications, features, and data manipulation tools that haven't been seen (or even attempted) in the browser. You look at browsers as a platform, and are adept at navigating the stickier bits to make sure that both design and functionality work exactly as intended, regardless of browser­-specific limitations.

The ideal candidate:

You have a strong grasp of the client­-side framework landscape, insist upon implementing test coverage for everything you do, and do not think of semantics and accessibility as afterthoughts in the development process. You have strong opinions about front­-end frameworks but are egoless in advocating for them and will change your mind in the face of convincing arguments. You’re excited about data’s impact on the world and you are curious, generous and can hustle in a rapidly growing environment.

The role:

At Enigma, we are passionate about unlocking the potential of data­­ both public and private. We build beautiful, performant interfaces and, as we expand our capabilities, we need frontend engineers equally capable of pushing the limits of the browser. You will have the chance to grow quickly within our rapidly expanding company. Your role may evolve as we do, but you don’t fear change; instead, you see opportunity. Strong communication skills are a must, as you will be required to work in a highly collaborative setting.

Qualities we value:

  • Carefully considers design, architecture, and code quality
  • Can demonstrate experience with Javascript and is familiar with React and ES2015 functionality
  • Loves stepping into the shoes of our users, and can think strategically about how we deliver value to clients, through effective user interface design and implementation
  • Has the desire and ability to solve open­-ended problems in an elegant, scalable manner
  • Approaches testing, quality assurance, and delivery in a disciplined manner.

Our Story:

Founded in 2011, Enigma grew out of an effort to retrieve, normalize, and host public data. Fun fact, our big coming out party was winning TechCrunch Disrupt's 2013 Battlefield.

Our vision is to empower people to interpret, and improve, the world around them. We place data in the context of the real world and make it connected, open and actionable. Enigma has one of the world’s largest repositories of public data and a powerful infrastructure for operationalizing data in the enterprise. We help global-scale companies tackle some of their hardest problems by driving public data and enterprise ontologies in mission-critical workflows.

Along the way, we have accumulated expertise from centralizing and connecting billions of public records and built powerful enterprise infrastructure for data ingestion, exploration, linking, and delivery (all of which is used internally).

Enigma is a rapidly growing team based in the Flatiron neighborhood of New York City. We are Series B funded startup backed by an amazing roster of investors including NEA Ventures, Two Sigma Ventures, American Express Ventures, and The New York Times Company.
