Job Details

Lightning Web Components (LWC) is essentially a toolchain that enables developers to write Web Components. Now Open Source at, this empowers the Base Component team to build modern reusable components that work within the Salesforce platform. To get an idea of what one of these components might look like view the Lightning Design System blueprints that describe the resulting markup. The team uses these blueprints to ensure accessibility and consistent execution as new experiences are requested.

As a member of the Base Component team the components you maintain and create will be one of the contributions that furthers the Lightning platform. Working with the User Experience team and community of internal developers you will evolve the component library for future Web Component development. For context Lightning Aura Components have a Lightning Web Component counterpart that ensures developers can transition into a more modern workflow. Just like you Salesforce engineers want to use the latest web technologies and we’ve bridged Aura to house Web Components to enable just that. This means that new components do not require a legacy counterpart and are relatively greenfield.

Responsibilities outside of the components themselves include spec reviews for new and existing components. These spec reviews ensure consistent practices are being implemented. Reviews of changes to components are done within the team and outside teams are scheduled routinely for reviews as they build out larger features. Ensuring that teams are using the Base Components to their full potential or effectively creating custom components cuts down on future liability in the platform. While the team has dedicated tech writers there is consistent involvement as release notes and documentation is revised.

Salesforce operates in a mono repo, but for the Base Component team almost all work is done through a familiar GitHub workflow of pull requests and peer reviews. The team also manages Inner Source pull requests as consumers of the Base Component library may have resource to implement documentation or component changes.

If you’re looking for an opportunity to drive the development of innovative new UI technologies then the Base Components team are the place to do it.
