Front-end Engineer

Colombo, Basnāhira paḷāta, Sri Lanka · Engineering


We're looking for the right individual to join our Front-end Engineering Team, to execute beautiful engineering projects at JadoPado.

We're super picky about details and like to ensure that everything that we do and anything that we deliver is absolutely top notch. Our view on life is either do it really really well or don't.

Engineering at JadoPado

Our product team combines design, frontend and backend. While specialisation is important, we prefer cross functional teams that can take on any area of our product, at will. Our most effective people work across design and implementation, making the best technology decisions to build incredible products.

We aim to strike a balance between skilled senior engineers together with aspiring junior engineers, eager to develop their skills. We prefer not to hire directly into people management roles for our engineering teams and choose to grow leaders from within our organisation. Career progression doesn't necessarily mean managing people as our senior engineers influence far more than just engineering decisions.

We believe that JadoPado is the right place to carry out career-defining work.
