Responsibilities and required skills 

As a Front-End Engineer you’ll have no shortage of interesting and challenging projects.  Primarily you'll be responsible for building out our next generation of client applications and, depending on fit, working on moon-shot projects within our burgeoning development lab.

You’ll do really well here if you have:

  • Experience coding clean and well documented object oriented Javascript 
  • A high comfort level in a LAMP environment
  • Creative problem solving skills
  • Enjoy interesting challenges
  • A thirst for knowledge.  

How do we meet your needs?           

Career progression:  Excellent performers are quickly recognized and afforded opportunities to move up as soon as it is feasible to do so.  Engineers impact the company with code initially, but there is greater cross-functional impact as your seniority grows.
Professional growth:  Learning opportunities abound. We promote continual growth in our engineers by giving educational stipends and opportunities to attend tech conferences, meetups, and workshops.  We have a wide range of technologies in our tech stack and do not restrict passionate engineers from learning areas outside of their core competencies.
Personal growth:   We believe that independent interests of employees can be brought to the workplace and shared with those that we spend our work days with.  

Vibrant and supportive culture:   We cater free lunches, mingle with each other on “Beer and Rock Band” Fridays, have an active runners club and enjoy a constant flow of treats brought in by foodies in the company.   We are responsive to one another, flexible with each other, and open to each other's suggestions.  Our executive management all have open door (and open idea) policies and are willing to drop everything to listen and help our engineers.

Sharp co-workers:   Our Engineering team has been winning dev awards together for years.   We have alums from Stanford, MIT, CalTech, UC Berkeley, UCLA, and Cal Poly.        

Compensation:  In addition to very competitive salaries we offer a Fortune 100 class 401K plan, along with comprehensive medical, dental, and vision insurance coverage.   We can be very competitive with  the options of startups and RSUs of larger businesses.  Finally we have a generous vacation policy so you can recharge and take time off when you need it.
