Frontend Engineer (Vue.js / GraphQL / Browser Extension)

Job description

Bird Eats Bug is a dev tool that combines screen recording with automatically captured technical logs. It allows even non-technical people to create proper data-rich bug reports that save engineering time and remove unnecessary back-and-forth.

The tool was originally launched on Product Hunt and grew organically since then. We’ve recently closed a €1.5M Seed financing round to improve the technology behind Bird and make it one of the best debugging tools over the next few years.

We are currently a team of 5, but growing – that means you will get the opportunity to have a lot of impact, make your own decisions, and help shape the company's future. We are pragmatic, keep processes lean, and cut back on unnecessary meetings. We believe in cross-functional competence, so as an engineer, you will be free to choose to focus on the frontend, backend, or both. If it sounds like you would fit right in, please keep reading.

We expect every team member to contribute to the R&D and help shape the technology future of Bird Eats Bug. Some of the features you might be working on include:
  • Upgrade video recording system to continuously record DOM, like a dash-cam.
  • Design and build the next generation virtualization environment for bug recording and reproduction.
  • Create an SDK version that can be installed in customer's applications and doesn't require a browser extension to record bugs.
  • Improve the usability and features of the Bird console, e.g. support for Source Maps , VueX, Redux, React components, Vue components
  • Develop integrations with 3rd party software like Jira, Github, Gitlab, Asana, Linear, etc.
