Front end CoffeeScripter

San Francisco or remote, United States

We are reimagining our user experience to be simple, snappy, and delightful. Javascript is just the ticket that gets us there. We're looking for a CoffeeScripter with a strong sense of user interaction design who can help us build new features in our mobile app, HTML5 visualizations, and pretty much everything else on our website.

Are we the right match? Maybe so if some of the buzzwords on your resume include:

  • CoffeeScript
  • Backbone.js (or other js MVC frameworks)
  • jQuery, Zepto (experience with js libs, and why they are important)
  • Test-driven development experience
  • sass/haml/less
  • 960.js, susy (what are those stinkin' things!)
  • Cross-browser testing (like dealing with IE7+, grrr)
  • User experience design
  • We don't expect you to be a designer; however, we do expect that you demonstrate an understanding of user experience. Please provide URLs, screenshots, or github links to work you've done in the past and a resume.

Did we mention that you should care deeply about usability? Don't worry about amazing asthetics, but you shoud know the difference between a good and a bad user interface.

Tell us more about

  • Side projects. OSS scripts or tools.
  • Involvement in the community through meetups, projects, essays, etc.
  • Fun, interesting, or crazy programming or scripting languages you've played around with.
  • Art, music, games, literature, or anything that fascinates you. We love passionate people.

We don't care about

  • Every technology you've used since you touched a keyboard (like your former life’s experience with DOA web services, IPX/SPX, Sonet/ATM networking experience, token ring, Banyan Vines, or LANtastic manager experience).
  • Verbose resumes (shorter is better).  

Comp

  • Competitive salary
  • Stock options negotiable
  • Health and 401K benefits available

Application Process

Keep applications brief; we want small resumes with relevant experience. Be prepared to defend any laundry lists of skills. Short but super-personalized cover letters are welcome.

Good luck!
