MayStreet Inc. has immediate openings for a Principal Frontend Engineer. This is a full-time remote position.
We are looking for passionate and enthusiastic problem-solvers with an interest in capital markets data to join us as we continue providing technology innovation and support to the world’s leading global capital markets companies.
In this role, you will be part of a talented and open-minded software team that works on mission-critical applications within capital markets technology.

Who we are
MayStreet is a global software company, headquartered in New York City, building the next generation of capital markets technology. MayStreet’s current clients include the world’s top capital markets trading companies. Global capital markets are built around an ocean of fast-moving, interrelated and complex data. Historically it’s been nearly impossible for all but a few firms to synchronize this data. MayStreet solves this problem by managing collection, storage and API access to data sets of unsurpassed integrity.
Your strategic role
The principal front-end engineer will design and develop enterprise-grade clean, powerful, and user-friendly UIs and cloud services which will be used by professional financial users, modelers and other clients.

The candidate must also have the easy personal skills required to interact with engineers on the customer side.
The principal front-end engineer will manage both the implementation of the above tools as well as their delivery to customers. Regular interactions with technically-oriented customers who use the MayStreet product portfolio is also required.
