The Dev Experience Team has an immediate need for a contractor JavaScript Ecosystem Engineer.  The JavaScript Ecosystem team owns, in partnership with key stakeholders the build systems, standard practices and key libraries for Node.js, Javascript, and Typescript for all of Indeed.  The work this team does impacts teams across Indeed.  We’re looking for someone who can grow into the subject matter expert for frontend build and contribute to a cross-functional team that supports this key ecosystem.

  • upgrading and improving jest
  • investigating faster module bundlers (metro, snowpack)
  • implementing better default caching for local builds
  • distributing global npm binaries in nexus
  • supporting major clients in making upgrades, implementing best practices
  • improving default gradle tasks to improve npm ci behaviors (–prefer-offline, –no-audit)

Our upcoming major initiatives that have lots of opportunity for cross-team impact include:

  • Webpack 5 support
  • Adopting Node 14 LTS as a baseline, and setting up upgrade paths for Node 16 LTS
  • Automating the deployment of new upgrades for all supported languages to end users automatically
