About the Position

We’re looking for impressive JavaScript developers who love crafting amazing user experiences. If you’re such a person, you probably have many options where you can apply your skill and passion, so why choose Turn?

We love JavaScript. We use Node and Bootstrap.  We manage our dependencies with Bower and NPM, build with Grunt, and leverage Angular and D3 on the front-end. You don’t need to know these applications to work with us (in fact, most of us didn’t use these a year ago). By being agile and free of bureaucracy, we use, learn, and change our libraries at our own discretion. We’re part of the open source community, our team recently open-sourced our distributed testing platform Thrill, and it’s underlying platform, Queen.

Our applications engineers work closely with the Product Management and User Experience teams to help design our products. We use agile methodologies with a focus on creating an exceptional customer experience.

We’re proud of the products we build. We not only impress our clients, but even the likes of the New York Times.

At Turn, what you build has impact on millions and works to better the Internet. You’ll do this in a culture that promotes innovation, freedom, growth, and humor. You’ll work with people who are as passionate about web applications as you are, along with leading experts in distributed computing, data mining, and machine learning who build our backend platform.

We are very passionate about what we do here, and at the same time have fun doing what we love.  Various company and team events and outings provide a good mix of work and play.  We all need to chill out every once in a while and have fun with our fellow team members.
