About Bitwarden

Bitwarden promotes better internet security and safety with an open source password management solution for individuals, teams, and business organizations.

As a member of the Engineering team at Bitwarden, you will contribute directly to the future of the Bitwarden product while working with a great team and amazing open source community. 

One of the most critical parts of the Bitwarden product is our autofill and form detection. These features are a part of the Bitwarden browser extension, and they enable the extension to fill form fields with the user’s data and detect new logins to store in Bitwarden. We are looking for a Front-End Engineer to join a team that is responsible for maintaining and continually improving these parts of our product, ensuring that they grow to provide seamless integration with the latest web UI patterns across all browsers.

This is an all-remote team and US time zones are preferred. We do not offer visa sponsorship at this time.

  • Develop and maintain a full suite of browser UI automation tests
  • Continually improve the autofill and form detection experience as new UI patterns emerge
  • Participate in code reviews, learning and spreading technical knowledge
  • Occasionally contribute bug fixes submitted by the user community


What you bring to Bitwarden

  • Deep understanding of browser UI behavior, including familiarity with DOM manipulation and content scripts
  • Proficiency in both vanilla JavaScript and with a modern framework like Angular (preferred), React, or Vue
  • Understanding of browser extension development
  • Excellent problem-solving skills – you might not know all the answers but you know how to find and communicate the solution
  • Experience with documenting complex technical solutions and conveying knowledge to other members of the Engineering team
  • Proficiency using source control such as Git, SVN, Subversion, TFS, etc.
  • Collaborative and adaptable mindset
  • Openness and authenticity combined with excellent communication skills
  • Excitement and enthusiasm for helping customers solve security and password challenges



  • User of Bitwarden
