Load Impact Engineers build next-generation, performance testing tools for other developers and DevOps engineers. Our open-source load testing platform, k6 is on the forefront of innovation in performance testing space. It is one of the trending projects on github, with over 4k stars. We embrace open source, and publish most of our “secret sauce” on github, for developers to review, edit and improve!
We are looking for a frontend engineer to strengthen our engineering team. As a frontend engineer you are part of the team responsible for developing our single page app that serves thousands of our customers every day on app.loadimpact.com. Since we are currently in a growth phase with an exciting roadmap ahead of us, you will contribute to the design and implementation of several new major features.
As a Software Engineer you will work in a small team, and have ability to switch your role to Python/Go backend, UX, or even DevOps to keep things interesting. Load Impact is growing, and we encourage our engineers to grow with the company, and learn new technologies as the company expands. This is not a job where you do the same thing every day.
This position is for our premium offering, a SaaS product available on loadimpact.com. We need your frontend expertise to expand the functionality and scale the service to match customer's expectations.
Due to our small teams and fast development pace you will have a substantial and immediate impact on how the end product is architected, developed, and how the engineering team operates. Most importantly, you will work with competent colleagues and will be able to expand your knowledge and skills in different directions.

If you work locally, we expect you to be in the office on Mondays and Wednesdays. You can work remotely for the rest of the week :-)
About Load Impact
Load Impact is the world’s most widely used online load testing service, with over 100,000 users from 190+ countries and over a million executed load tests - Google “web load test"!
We are a small company but very experienced in developing applications for performance testing and monitoring. We started out as a software development consulting company way back in 2000, developing performance test and measurement software for customers such as Nasdaq and the European space agency. We wrote both hardcore, low-level networking software and high-level web user interfaces and became quite good at both of those things. We pride ourselves on understanding the lower levels of a networked application while at the same time realizing how incredibly important UX is. In 2009 we took the step and launched loadimpact.com, becoming a product company rather than a consulting company, and we have never looked back.
Recruiting is ongoing. We will respond to your application immediately. If you don’t have a CV ready, don’t create one, send us a link to your Github/LinkedIn with a few sentences about yourself.
