We're looking for a JavaScript Application Engineer to help us build out our SaaS Learning Business Platform. Your day to day would consist of just two tasks: building & shipping platform functionality.

You would be a good fit if:

  • You are excited about new JavaScript technologies like Prettier and GraphQL.
  • You sweat the small stuff, but know when to ship it.
  • You are passionate about listening to users & building elegant web products.

We use Node.js with Koa and Ember.js, but are open to any framework experience you might have. We aren't setting a strict number of years of experience, but this is a more mid-to-senior level position. This role is split through the full stack with an emphasis on the backend. We've seen a lot of folks succeed at TI who come from consultancy-style work and are looking to really invest deeply in a platform, so if that sounds like you, please apply.

Throughout the day, we rely on Slack and GitHub pull requests. Over the past year, we've introduced Babel, Prettier, GraphQL, and ESLint. The development team is completely distributed across the US.

The company

Thought Industries is a startup in the Online Learning space. We enable companies to launch and sell their own online school and distribute learning material — think Shopify meets Udemy/Coursera.

This is a full-time position. You can work from anywhere, but there should be some overlap with US East Coast hours. No Recruiters, please, and we are only able to consider US citizens at this time.

We are a growing, well-funded technology company, with a talented team and a clear vision. This is a unique opportunity to take a lead role at an exciting SaaS software company with a robust cloud-based platform. We hire talented people who are self-motivated and team orientated.
