Scalable Path · Mar 16th 2020
Scalable Path is looking for a Full-stack Node & React Developer for Chrome Extension to join the team and work on a client project. This is a remote, full-time position.
CLIENT COMPANY DESCRIPTION: The client's application is a no-code productivity tool for individuals at work. They believe that working professionals should be able to concentrate on their actual work, not tedious and repetitive tasks that come along with it. That’s why they designed a product that takes data that is siloed across different online services and makes it work TOGETHER so that it can trigger relevant automation at the right time and in real-time. They think that taking out the tediousness of day to day tasks shouldn’t be difficult nor should it be left to the executive and virtual assistants – and that’s exactly how we empower their users to do it on their own!
Their current product goal is to be the "go-to productivity Chrome extension" by handling a user's scheduling, tasks, and outreach needs better than an executive assistant. They are VC-funded and are in an exciting space (no-code automation!) with a great vision and a lot of features planned in their product roadmap over the next year!
DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES: You will be adding new features to an existing application based around a Chrome extension. You'll need to write code on both the server-side (Node) & client-side (React) and follow existing coding style conventions.

Mockups will be provided. Transfer/integrate with an existing website on Squarespace. (3) Create a mobile Gmail/GSuite add-on for the chrome extension (https://developers.google.com/gsuite/add-ons/overview) Possible Future Features: (4) Text expander and email templates automation (based off the open source https://github.com/carlinyuen/ChromeAutoTextExpander ) (5) Intelligent task scheduling & tracking. users enter tasks and have them intelligently scheduled into an existing calendar
