AthenaWorks is a company built by women and a diverse team of technologist who know what it takes to build a great company where truly everybody thrives.

We are driven to create a culture of empowerment for women in technology.

Our approach emphasizes equal pay, equal opportunity and a global level playing field that has no ceiling on advancement. 

Many companies are trying to be more diverse and inclusive but most of them fall short of just a promise. Either they have unconscious biases in their hiring processes or no processes to truly have an inclusive team.

  • Maintain quality and ensure responsiveness of applications.

  • Collaborate with the rest of the team to design applications and launch new features.

  • Maintain code integrity and organization.

  • Participation in scrum sessions and product reviews.

We are looking for:

  • Experience leading teams

  • At least 5 years of experience developing advanced web applications in a scalable production environment using front-end web technologies (HTML5, CSS, Javascript)

  • Experience writing single page apps.

  • Cross browser compatibility, including mobile browsers (e.g. iOS)

  • Ability to gather requirements and design, code and test independently.

  • Ability to work effectively and efficiently in a team-oriented environment
