More information about this job

Overview

Life is short...work somewhere awesome.

 

Our development team is filled with superstars with a proven passion for solving nearly impossible problems. You will work with a group of engineers with a plethora of experience building innovative software solutions for global organizations and an insatiable thirst for learning new technologies. As forward thinking technologists, we push the envelope and think outside the box in everything we do.

 

We are looking for a Senior Javascript Engineer to join the team who loves to code and build elegant and sophisticated UI’s for our ground breaking applications that have been changing the way doctors and clinicians worldwide interact with and care for their patients.

Responsibilities

  • Coding. Our engineers, no matter what level, never go hands off. We think it’s important to be close to the code and always be a contributor. We work with several different JS technologies, including Angular and Node, as well as Jquery, HTML and CSS. As a senior engineer, we’re looking for a breadth of experience in a lot of technologies, and expertise in various flavors of Javascript. You should also be up to speed with practices like TDD and continuous integration.
  • Learning. Our engineering team is full of life-long learners. It’s important to stay up on our craft and always keep an eye on what’s next, and what’s best. Open Source contributions and pet projects are a way of life here, it’s not only about the day job. It’s important we learn from each other.
  • Problem solving. The problems we have to solve are mind boggling. Often times, we are challenged with doing something that no other company has done before. This takes critical thinking, root cause analysis and issue dissection by the team to come up with a best solution.
  • Mentoring. Teaching and coaching is an integral part of this role. Bringing your less experienced peers up to speed on best practices and new skills/languages is key.
  • Delivering. This takes a start-up mentality and a laser focus to get the highest quality products out the door here. We do not negotiate on the level of sophistication and quality we offer to our customers. You must be ready to manage competing priorities, pivot and adjust quickly, and always think the big picture.

 

Qualifications

  • 8+ years industry experience as software engineer, at least 5 years Javascript experience
  • Proven work experience demonstrated by a portfolio, code repository and/or website
  • BS Degree in Computer Science or related discipline (MS/PHD preferred)
  • Passionate about technology and coding
  • Really strong in open source libraries /frameworks
