Senior GUI Architect (Haskell, React) at Luna (Kraków, Poland)


Luna is looking for a senior Haskell developer to take charge of the design, development, and evolution of a new responsive front-end for Luna, a project said by NASA and Singularity University to be 1 of 20 most impressive technologies worldwide. If you bring strong technical experience and a passion for user experience, this role could be the one for you.

What You'll Do

As a senior Haskell front-end developer, you'll spearhead the design of the new user-interface for Luna 2.0, designing and building a front-end that can run across multiple browsers and in electron. This will involve:

  • Spearhead the architecture and design for the new version of Luna Studio, its event system, and its plugin architecture.

  • Design and implement purely functional bindings to our JavaScript WebGL drawing framework.

  • Working closely with stakeholders and customers to design an interface that is both intuitive and fluid to work with.

  • Implementing these solutions using modern front-end web-development technologies in a cross-platform manner to create an application that can run both in the browser and in electron.

  • Managing and working around cross-browser compatibility issues.

  • Contributing to the testing and integration of the user interface, from both functional and UI standpoints.

The Skills We're Looking For

We have a few particular skills that we're looking for in this role:

  • A strong focus on both user experience and aesthetics.

  • Practical and rich experience writing code in Haskell, including experience with lenses, monad transformers, free monads, overlapping type classes, GADTs, type families, existential types, template Haskell, generics, type applications, and continuations.

  • Practical experience building large and complex software systems.

  • Practical experience architecting user-facing applications, with a focus on enabling user workflows.

  • A strong understanding, based on practical experience, of modern front-end frameworks, with a focus on React.

It would be a big bonus if you had:

  • Experience with GHCJS.

  • An understanding of cross-browser compatibility issues, and experience working around such problems.

  • Familiarity with front-end build tools such as Webpack and Gulp.

  • Experience with testing tools, both for integration and for front-end (e.g. Selenium).

  • Experience with visual programming systems such as Houdini, Max/MSP, Lab VIEW, or Touch Designer.
