About Prefect:

Are you looking for an incredible opportunity to work with a high-growth SaaS company? Our workflow orchestration platform bridges the gap between data engineers and data scientists, allowing them to do what they do best. We are looking for enthusiastic new additions to our team who are excited by the question “what will you build?”

Role Summary:

As a Senior Frontend Software Engineer at Prefect, you will work on and lead projects that directly impact our users and customers, allowing them to gain insight into their workflows in real time.

You will coordinate with internal stakeholders, including our CTO and CEO, on new features and help Prefect execute our company’s product roadmap. You will proactively identify opportunities for improvement, build consensus, track risks and dependencies, and lead projects to completion with a positive attitude.
