Zeal is a web and mobile development consultancy that empowers small- to medium-sized organizations to solve huge problems.

Headquartered in the heart of downtown Medford, OR -- the center-point between the global technology hubs of Portland, Oregon and San Francisco, California. We also have offices in Portsmouth, NH and San Diego, CA.

Why this job is important:

Culture: We promote an open and collaborative approach to decision-making process. We are pragmatically agile — encourage pair programming and multi-discipline collaboration — and flexible, with an evolutionary view of the product life cycle.

Values: We “sell” an experience. Empathy, enthusiasm (not to be confused with being an extrovert), artisanship and appreciation towards one another, are our most valued attributes. We want you to bring a deep passion and excitement for the engineering art form.

Process: We practice the finer points of eXtreme Programming: a highly collaborative development process. We strive to maintaining small project team and tight cycles of feedback, and remove as many operational barriers as possible, so you can build the right product, the right way. We practice multi-discipline pair programming, which means we not only pair up engineers, but also designers.

Level-Up: We are always looking for ways to help the team level-up their skills: sponsoring and attending conferences, encourage speaking opportunities, host regular tech talks and meetups, and invite industry leaders to work with the team.

Gadgets: We hold true that our team should not feel hindered by the tools they use. As such, we provide up to date MacBooks, monitors and other pairing peripherals to each member of the team.

What you will learn on this job:
  • Communication over documentation;
  • Communicate highly-technical concepts to non-technical people;
  • Crafting amazing web and mobile applications using Ruby on Rails, Javascript and React.js;
  • Test Driven Development and Pair Programming;
  • Story lifecycle, breaking down projects into bite size chunks that anyone on the team can deliver;
  • Object oriented development patterns and relational databases, such as PostgreSQL or MySQL;
  • Functional programming, such as Elixir/Phoenix and Ramda.js;
  • Git version control: committing, branching, merging and rebasing;
  • Implementation of a graphic design in HTML and SCSS;
  • DevOps, using Amazon Web Services and Heroku;

If this sounds like you, please apply!

We apologize in advance that we are not able to accept international candidates for this opening at this time.
