About Balena

Balena provides a software platform that helps developers build, deploy and manage code on connected devices. We brought Docker to embedded GNU/Linux devices in 2013 and have been building our IoT toolkit ever since.

Our technology is open, standards-based, and proven in production across a wide range of scenarios from drones, 3D printers, point-of-sale devices, tidal turbines, skyscrapers and more. Our investors include DFJ, Aspect Ventures, GE, and Ericsson.

Balena is a highly distributed, remote-friendly company. We rely on clear communication and the rule of "assume positive intent" to help us work together across time zones, cultures, and first languages. As an organization, we have little hierarchy, and organize as needed to build complex features and solve big problems. Our base of operations is nominally London, though really we are living all over the world: from Barcelona to Bulgaria, Argentina to Vietnam, and many more.

On being a Internal Tooling Frontend Engineer at Balena

Balena is developing Jellyfish, an ambitious social knowledge database that the team uses to collaborate, without being blocked by departmental or hierarchal divisions. Jellyfish gathers all information company wide and makes it a platform to implement processes that enhance the team's productivity and understanding. Think of it as a cross between Slack and Excel!

The improved problem space visibility and communication flow that the platform provides to the team is then leveraged to help build and improve both internal and customer facing products. Multiple teams across the company are already relying on the Jellyfish platform for their daily tasks.

Jellyfish adopts a revolutionary and cutting edge architecture:

The Jellyfish team consists of a small group of tight-knit engineers who take pride on moving hyper fast without sacrificing quality by investing on automation, testing, and great engineering practices.

In this role, you will be using React to automatically generate user interfaces that can be used to view (and work together on) the compiled knowledge from many different perspectives.

About working at Balena

We come from 15+ countries, and we embrace a remote culture with flexible hours. To us, this means being highly productive while still maintaining a healthy work-life balance. You need to be able to work remotely, and have a dependable internet access available so you can join video calls.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We value knowledge and initiative more than educational and personal backgrounds, age, or location. We maintain a work environment in which team members are treated with respect at all times and in which thoughts and ideas can be shared openly.

We communicate proposals, discuss with others in the team and accept feedback if it makes the result better. We value the ability to learn, which is more important to us than knowledge of specific technologies. We know that learning fast means being outside our comfort zone, which is OK -- we'd rather learn than let our assumptions get in our way.
