About Karbon

Karbon is the global leader in practice management software for growth-minded accounting firms. We provide an award-winning, highly collaborative cloud platform that streamlines work and communication, enabling the average accounting firm using Karbon to save 16 hours per week, per employee.

We have customers in 34 countries and have grown into a globally distributed team, with our people based throughout the US, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the United Kingdom. We are well-funded, ranked #1 on G2, have a fantastic team culture, are growing rapidly, and making a global impact.

Seeking senior frontend engineers skilled in balancing efficiency and excellence. Ideal candidates thrive in teamwork, innovate, and maintain products while valuing autonomy and creativity. We prioritize ownership and impact, welcoming diversity, passion, and authenticity in a collaborative, sincere environment.

Key Responsibilities

  • Balance Speed and Quality—You adeptly balance the need for speed with a commitment to quality. You know when to accelerate to meet deadlines and when to focus on detail for perfect outcomes. You have the judgment to navigate these priorities effectively, maintaining a keen eye for both efficiency and excellence.
  • Work effectively as part of a team—Software development is a team sport, where solo victories are rare. It thrives on your robust collaboration and dedication to supporting your colleagues. You contribute to a harmonious blend of focused work and engaging discussions, flexible between home and office settings, ensuring everyone can contribute to the team's success. You are eager to be part of an exceptional team, ready to invest your efforts towards collective achievements.
  • Build and maintain—Your role involves developing innovative products and ensuring the continuous operation of existing ones. You appreciate not only the allure of new technologies but also the importance of iterative improvements on established systems. Your commitment to pioneering and preservation is crucial. You look to drive change that will be impactful and long lasting. These changes are not just adopted by the team you work in but are implemented across the engineering department.
  • Autonomy—You are inherently curious, finding joy in learning and exploration. Faced with challenges and direction rather than predefined solutions, you engage fully and creatively with problems.
  • Own your work—You take genuine pride in your creations, feeling a deep sense of responsibility for the products you develop and their impact on customers. This sense of ownership is paramount, and you share this commitment.
  • Bring your passion and personality—Your creativity, curiosity, and authentic self make the team stronger. If you've worked in highly political environments, you'll find our culture, free from office politics and valuing openness and authenticity, a refreshing change.

Qualifications

  • Have proven experience setting what good looks like for frontend coding. Ensures that consistency and standards are followed across the engineering department.

  • Candidates should not mind being challenged by unfamiliar technologies or frameworks as part of working on a solution. Proven ability to repeatedly and successfully adapt to new technologies over several years will be highly regarded.
  • Strong communication skills are essential for our international, multi-locational team dynamics. As well as proven experience collaborating with other engineers, product, and design teams to improve usability and user experience.
  • Familiarity with the full software development life cycle and engineering best practices is required.

Karbon embraces diversity and inclusion, aligning with our values as a business. Research has shown that women and underrepresented groups are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single criteria.

Generally, if you are a good person, we want to talk to you. 😛
