Who are we?

SRTX ( srtxlabs.com ) builds new materials and software to enable better textiles. SRTX is best known for its first technology, Sheertex, a knit made from one of the world's strongest polymers which has disrupted hosiery through impossibly strong pantyhose. Named one of TIME’s Best Inventions, our customers get more wears from our tights than average - meaning fewer tights end up in landfills.

Our mission towards achieving sustainability stretches beyond the environment: we are committed to paying our employees an equitable wage and offering an environment that promotes creativity and growth. Our factory and office share our headquarters, allowing constant collaboration and innovation that can be implemented immediately. We encourage our employees to learn quickly, have autonomy, and leave a direct and lasting impact on the company as we strive to become the leading brand in hosiery.

Who are you?

We’re looking for a Senior Front End Developer to help design and build our own operating System which powers SRTX's manufacturing and production process. Reporting to the Director of Technology, you will take ownership of the projects you're working on, Connecting production machinery to the rest of the organization.

If you are someone who enjoys working in a fast paced and innovative start up environment, keen to keep learning and iterating their craft then we would love to speak with you!

What can you expect from this role?

The opportunity to work within a growing team, helping to define best practices and iterate current processes with new innovations. Working for a hyper growth startup will sharpen your instincts as a Developer allowing you to be creative in solving problems. It’s a great opportunity to make a difference.

Responsibilities:
- Developing the web-based software which runs on hundreds of tablets around the factory, assisting production staff in performing the myriad of tasks required to manufacture pantyhose
- Developing tools which help track product through the production process
- Helping to find ways our quality control process can be improved through software
- Working with the manufacturing team to understand the problems they're facing, and how the technology we're building can improve their work
- Designing and developing the software that will solve those problems

Requirements:
- 3-5 years of Work experience with software development experience (Python, JavaScript, CSS, React, TypeScript)
- You enjoy problem solving in a cross-disciplinary, results-oriented team.
- You have an appropriate disdain for software; you have a deeply held belief that code is a liability and should only be written as a last resort if no better options are available.
- You are motivated by solving real problems for real people (you'll be working meters away from the 100 people who'll be using your software every day).
- You are comfortable working in an environment where you'll be writing JavaScript in the morning, walking through lines of knitting machines at lunch, and helping test a new robot in the afternoon.
- Cross-disciplinary teams solving problems that extend beyond software

Expectations of everyone on the Technology team:
- You take ownership of the problems you're working on, and solve them using any and all resources available (including and especially by getting help from the of the rest of the Technology team).
- You are humble and inquisitive. You enter every conversation expecting to learn something from your interlocutor.
- You take an evidence-based approach to problem solving. You listen to your gut, form a hypothesis, then collect data which could disprove your hypothesis.
- You are always improving. Always improving yourself, always improving the Technology team, and always improving Sheertex.
