Senior Frontend Engineer (Linktree)

Job description

The Role 

Linktree is looking for a highly experienced Senior Frontend Engineer to build client interfaces for application and internal tools as we rapidly scale our product and organisation.


We work with modern but reliable tools, including React, Typescript, Storybook, Elasticsearch, REST APIs + GraphQL.


Expertise in these areas is a huge plus, but having familiarity with other common web frameworks and tools (such as Vue or Svelte) are fine substitutes. We’re a fast growing, collaborative team who genuinely enjoy working and playing together. Linktree is a cross-functional team of product managers, designers, backend and DevOps engineers with a common goal of making Linktree a great product.  


We are looking for an expert who understands that simplicity and reliability are core aspects of a maintainable system, all the while curious about new and interesting problems, and the technology to solve them.
