Docker is a computer program that performs operating-system-level virtualization, also known as "containerization".

The Docker Hub team develops and maintains the largest and most popular container registry service in the world today. Millions of users - community developers, open source projects and Independent Software Vendors - push and pull Docker container images billions of times through Docker Hub. If you are an experienced front-end or full-stack Software Engineer and want to play a critical role in the evolution of Docker Hub and Docker’s next chapter, this role is for you.

As a Front End Software Engineer, you will build and enhance Docker Hub, our container registry, to deliver a top tier experience for free and paid users. You will collaborate with UX designers and backend engineers to design user journeys and API specifications. You will be constantly seeking ways to improve development practices to ensure we maintain a high level of quality with a fast pace of delivery. Finally, you should be passionate about how developers’ lives could be made easier, and about Docker’s role in that.
