Full Stack Engineer

We believe strongly that a well-designed application makes customers happy, reduces support costs, and removes the need for static documentation. We ensure that every feature is customer driven and simple enough to explain on a single page wiki.  Rather than hire into well-defined categories, we are looking for engineers that want to take ownership, deliver results, and make a difference in many different parts of our product and process evolution. Here is a short list of things that we discuss daily. If they make sense to you, then you likely make sense to us:

  • Code reviews and Test Driven Development are a way of life. We know that “the slow way is the fast way.”
  • Our engineers are masters of at least 1 part of our stack, are fluent in 2, and understand all 3.  Our technology looks like this:
    • Node.JS/ and or Java
    • JavaScript[Angular/Backbone]/CSS[Sass]
    • AWS/SQL[MySql/PostGres]/NoSQL[Cassandra]
  • We make heavy use of Source Code Management [Git] tooling and expect to see multiple code check-ins daily.  All code commits go through a highly collaborative code review process.
  • A deep understanding of JavaScript and recent experience with Node.JS and at least one of the popular client frameworks such as backbone.js, angular.js, or ExtJS.
  • Proven experience with single page web applications that make asynchronous server requests via REST. I’ll call it AJAX just to get the buzzword hit on search engines.
  • Practical experience with CSS and an understanding of responsive layouts.  Experience with CSS pre-processing using SASS or similar tools is a plus.
  • A strong desire to understand how customers use our product, not just show off all our features.
