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, but also comfortable mixing them with older technology.
  • You sweat the small stuff, but know when to ship it.
  • You are passionate about listening to users & building elegant web products.
  • You are comfortable learning new technologies and navigating a large existing codebase.
  • You are confident working across the full stack. You will be working on everything from UI components to API integrations.

Our stack consists primarily of Node.js with Koa, GraphQL, and Ember.js. Although we are an Ember shop, we are open to any framework experience you might have as the concepts will be familiar.

Throughout the day, we rely on Slack and GitHub pull requests. The development team is completely distributed across the US.
