Software Engineers who are passionate about Javascript – North Denver

Culture

Our client is very intent on finding people who are a great fit for their company both from a technical and a cultural/personality perspective. The first call you do is a culture call, just to make sure! They want people who are excited about the opportunities, interested in their market  and customers, and can get into and out of a technical conversation easily.  This company is also a believer in work-life balance, because they understand that engineers are not machines that you just plug into a chair and feed Red Bull and Cheetos for fuel.

The Job

We’re looking for Mid level and Senior level Javascript Engineers who love front-end developer, but also have a little bit of experience with PHP. The entire front-end system will be built using angular.js and/or require.js, while the backend system is PHP so you have to know how to read and integrate with code written in that language.  We’re really interested in engineers with a solid CS background, you don’t have to have a CS degree but you do need to know the core principles of CS and be able to answer core JS questions about classes and inheritance.

The pay

Benefits, 401k, bonuses based on team and personal achievements

85-100k, based on your experience

“Vacation time” is not a set number of days, it’s take it when you need it

Skills we’re looking for

Front End Experience with building in JS

HTML5, CSS3 should be a given here

Experience building with PHP, reading the code, etc

A CS understanding and background definitely helps

RESTful service experience

If you’ve got Node.js experience and can translate that to front-end know-how, that’s very interesting here

We focus on making sure that the jobs we discuss are a good match for you AND for the client. This means that if it’s not a great match, we’ll tell you. If it’s a good match, we’ll ASK YOU to decide whether you want to talk to our client, after we tell you who they are and let you do your own research.

We believe our collaborative, honest approach is the right way to do things, and we think you’ll agree.

We do indeed get paid to do our jobs and we’re good at it, but our job is about building out the teams that our clients NEED and not putting butts in seats.  There is no doubt that we are a quality over quantity firm.

We do things differently, on purpose.
