Senior UI Engineer

At Tabular, we think data engineers, analysts, and scientists are most effective when they can focus on building reliable data products and answering questions, not fighting infrastructure. We’re creating a new data platform that automates maintenance and optimization to protect people from tedious concerns, while enabling them to work with the same data simultaneously across Spark, Trino, Flink, and other engines. The core of Tabular is the open source standard for huge analytic tables, Apache Iceberg.

The opportunity

As an early-stage startup, Tabular is looking for builders who like to get things done and solve challenging problems. We are searching for experienced UI engineers to build intuitive, engaging user experiences to power an innovative new warehousing solution. This is a high-impact opportunity that will allow you to influence the design and direction of the product.

What you’ll do

In this role, you will design and implement Tabular’s user experience, where customers can create, monitor, and manage their cloud data platform.

What you bring to the team

  • Proven track record of designing and delivering engaging, performant user interfaces
  • Experience architecting and operating scalable web based applications
  • Ability to work independently and focus on impactful features
  • Extensive background in javascript and associated technologies (node.js, react, css)
  • Strong communication skills and the ability to collaborate with others

What gives you an edge

  • Expertise with modern javascript toolchains like npm, yarn, webpack, and babel
  • Ability to articulate and implement a cohesive design framework
  • Experience designing and implementing a graphQL based api
  • Exposure to big data technologies or experience with large scale analytic applications

About Tabular

The Tabular team has deep experience with open source big data projects and comes from data engineering and platform teams at Netflix, where Apache Iceberg was created.

  • We are a remote-first company. You can work from anywhere, as long as we can legally pay you and your working hours have a reasonable overlap with the rest of the team.
  • We care about impact, not hours. How much time off you take is up to you—coordinated with your manager to avoid support gaps.
  • Employees are important to us and so we have excellent benefits plans for both individuals and families.
  • We want to build an inclusive workplace where everyone feels able to be themselves and contribute their best work, and we believe that hiring from diverse backgrounds and networks will help us build a better company.

The salary range for this position is between $60,000 and $240,000, depending on experience.
