Solution Engineer / Consultant

Job description

Fonto is looking to hire a Solution Engineer  to join our growing team. You will be responsible for understanding business requirements and formulating technical solutions to a diverse set of problems across customer organizations.


You will design, code, configure, test, implement, and support the integration of Fonto within customer solutions, as well as develop custom extensions within those applications.


Fonto values engineers that are as good at dealing with people as they are at writing code. One of Fonto’s core values is delighting the customer. The ideal candidate will feel comfortable talking with customers to gain insights on what is truly valuable to them as well as dealing with third-party technical teams and assessing their needs.

What Is The Fonto Authoring Platform?

Our flagship product is an online text editor, just like Google Docs, but specifically for XML documents, that we validate in real time against all sorts of XML schemas. To give you some context; all sorts of companies like Toyota, BBC, Pearson, VMware, Roche, ISO and various governments use Fonto to easily structure, reuse, reconfigure and adapt their content to individual needs.


The editor is fully developed in JavaScript. For our UI we use React with inline styles through Glamor. The editor core is completely vanilla JS and even contains an open-source XPath engine (https://github.com/FontoXML/fontoxpath). In addition to the text editor, we provide a number of extensions/apps. These are generally back-end services implemented in .NET Core to which we connect via XHRs.


We automate everything we can using modern technologies like Travis, Bitbucket pipelines, Kubernetes clusters and the Azure cloud.
