Senior Frontend Engineer (Full-time)

About IYK
IYK is the platform for brands, musicians, and creators to deploy fully-customizable, digi-physical experiences at scale.
Through combining blockchain and NFC technology, we strive to create immersive experiences that bridge the gap between the physical and digital worlds.
With a proven track record of collaborations with industry leaders such as Adidas, BB3 Labs (Billionaire Boys Club), and 9dcc, we continue to re-imagine the relationship between consumers and the items they own.
We are also backed by a team of amazing investors, including a16z CSS, Collab+Currency, 1kx, POAP, gmoney, Palm Tree Crew, and Lattice Capital.
The Role
At IYK, the engineering surface is incredibly broad. Our stack ranges from hardware up through the traditional web2 stack, and ending at the blockchain itself. With this comes countless frontend touchpoints, from pages opened by NFC at our physical devices to e-comm drop pages, to backend admin dashboards helping us and our clients serve the experiences only web3 x physical can create. As a small team, we care deeply about writing clear and concise code.
As a Senior Frontend Engineer at IYK, you will operate at the edge of web2 and web3, working with us to build the best UI/UX for the coming generation of web3 users. By bringing crypto to IRL, we can onboard people into the space better than ever before–our frontend engineering team is core to making sure that this experience is both seamless and beautiful.
Furthermore, the ideal candidate for this role should be comfortable establishing patterns for the rest of the team to follow (e.g. reusable components, state management, etc). Maintainability and scalability matter to you. We don’t expect you to know everything, but we do expect that you will research and implement features with care.
Our stack currently consists of:
TypeScript
Next.js (React, MobX, Stitches, Radix) frontend
Nest.js (TypeORM, JWT auth) backend
PostgreSQL databases
Hasura GraphQL Engine
Solidity smart contracts
