This is your chance to be at the right place at the right time, and work on a product with real-life relevance for all Americans.  

Job Description

We are a tight-knit team of full-stack web developers with a bunch of new initiatives in the pipeline. Any given day might see us …

  • crafting user-centered interfaces with Angular
  • split testing responsive stylesheets built on Susy
  • dipping a wary toe into a number of intriguingly arcane code bases

This industry moves fast. Rarely does your quarterly plan survive unscathed. You'll always have a new project to get excited about or a sudden problem in need of a creative solution. You'll balance long-term strategic thinking with get-it-done pragmatism. You'll be vocal with your ideas, and open to others'.

You'll defend your chosen text editor with your very life.

What you will do everyday…
  • Rapidly prototype new features and applications, with a focus on the client side
  • Build internal libraries stuffed with well-factored, reusable code
  • Work with graphic designers and copywriters for content
  • Write JavaScript, HTML, CSS, Ruby, PHP and more
  • Be an HTML expert, CSS guru, JavaScript wizard, and back-end… let's say arc-welder. Often at the same time

Qualifications

What we're looking for…
  • Expertise in front-end web development, including one or more client-side MVC frameworks (Angular preferred)
  • Expertise in back-end web development, including one or more server-side MVC frameworks 
  • Experience in cross-platform compatibility and responsive design (IE, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, mobile browsers)
  • Enthusiasm for test- and behavior-driven development
  • Excellent problem solving skills
  • Strong verbal communication skills
  • Experience working in a small to mid-size company with an agile development process
  • Willingness to learn and be part of a fast-growing department
