What We Do:

We are the frontend product team for a group of fund managers & backend developers with experience in high frequency, quantitative trading. They build trading systems to stretch between all the connected exchanges (centralized and decentralized) at Uphold while we build the interfaces for both internal stakeholders and external users. Our team aims to build a flexible, interoperable component library to compose any variety of trading interfaces - and we're looking for detail-oriented designers & engineers to help us build this vision.

How We Do It:

By leveraging the composability JAMstack offers, we separate the backend layer into APIs and use ES6 (Node/React) to build a cohesively designed suite of scalable, discretely testable components. We use Figma as a primary source for both a generic design system and creating these components.
