  • Software Dev (30)

    • Fleetio is a modern software platform that helps thousands of organizations around the world manage a fleet. Transportation technology is a hot market and we’re leading the charge, with raving fans and new customers signing up every day. We're looking for a Senior Full Stack Rails Engineer to join our growing engineering team of 9 and help us build amazing features.


      WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING

      Your work will be heavily focused toward high level, high impact areas. You’ll work closely with Product Managers and Designers to plan, design, and implement some of our more complex features while keeping our UI fresh and modern. You’ll have a strong voice in the development and planning processes, so past senior level experience is key.

      We work in weekly sprints and use Pivotal Tracker to keep things organized. While we keep meetings to a minimum, our remote team is heavily collaborative and takes advantage of modern tools such as Slack, Google Drive, and Hangouts to stay in touch.

      Our stack includes Ruby/Rails, AngularJS, Bootstrap, Postgres and Heroku. We’re currently on Rails 5 and strive to keep our frameworks and libraries up to date.

      This is a position we consider essential to the company’s success. Be sure to mention coffee in your cover letter so we know you actually read this.


      WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU

      • Be a part of an incredible team of “A” players who go above and beyond to make Fleetio a successful company. We’re a customer-centric team with a great product, excellent support, and countless happy customers.
      • Work from our HQ in Birmingham, AL or REMOTELY. 50% of our Engineering Team works remotely and we strive to promote a strong remote working culture.
      • Build software used by people all around the world. So many different types of companies and organizations operate a fleet each day, and Fleetio is a good fit for most of them (it’s a huge market).


      OUR TEAM

      We're hardcore believers in easy-to-use software. Crafting a delightful user experience is hard work, but we welcome the challenge and are looking for team members who share our ambition.

      We’re a startup that’s in “scale up” mode, meaning we’re past the days of just a couple of people in a small office, but we’re still very much a fast-paced, highly collaborative company.

      We’re committed to fostering a tight-knit team through various collaboration tools. We place great value on work/life balance and abhor the stereotypical 100 hour/week startup life. We have families and know you do, too.

      We're looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to join the engineering team at Zapier. Want to create a simple product that allows anyone to do complex, incredible things with the world's APIs? Then keep reading!

      We know applying for and taking on a new job at any company requires a leap of faith. We want you to feel comfortable and excited to apply at Zapier. To help share a bit more about life at Zapier, here are a few resources in addition to the job description that can give you an inside look at what life is like at Zapier. We hope you'll take the leap of faith and apply.

      Zapier is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a diverse workforce.

      Even though our job description may seem like we're looking for a specific candidate, the role inevitably ends up tailored to the person who applies and joins. Regardless of how well you feel you fit our description, we encourage you to apply if:

      You care deeply about improving frontend technology so our customers can have a great experience using our product.

      About You

      You love code. You love to take raw ideas and build great products with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. You know JavaScript is imperfect, but you embrace its functional side and genuinely enjoy coding with it. You might like to talk about obscure computer science topics, but really, you just want to write simple code and ship new products and features to customers (or improve existing ones).

      You love great UX. You spend most of your time coding, but you also have an eye for great design and a feel for great UX. Maybe you were once a designer (or still are) or maybe your creative outlet has always been the code. Either way, you care about more than just the code.

      You love learning new things. You love researching new tech and driving forward with the implementation details. Your focus is on frontend JavaScript code, but you can dig in wherever needed. Python, CSS, build tools, shell scripts, you name it. If you don't already know it, you're ready to learn it.

      You can balance lots of concerns. Frontend apps have to take into account performance (using networks and devices that we can't control), customer demands, A/B tests, UX research, code quality, a rapidly changing ecosystem of languages and modules, and the list goes on. And we actually want to ship things too! You can balance those demands without getting overwhelmed and keep the needle moving forward.

      You love helping others. You love sharing knowledge with the rest of your team, building shared tooling for other engineers, giving back to the open-source community, and directly helping customers.

       

      Things You Might Do

      Zapier is a small, fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:

      • Research, guide, and execute frontend architecture changes, including but by no means limited to GraphQL, server-side React rendering, and Flow typing.
      • Build reusable React components with modular CSS, manage data on the client with Redux and GraphQL, and test everything with Jest.
      • Measure and resolve performance bottlenecks, using tools like Chrome DevTools, Lighthouse, WebPagetest, or custom tooling.
      • Refactor or improve existing code. We've migrated most of our frontend to React, but we still have some Backbone code to clean up. And we constantly find ways to improve all of our JavaScript code.
      • Work closely with our product, design, and UX teams to create amazing and intuitive experiences that make it effortless to connect different apps together.
      • Help put tools, processes, and documentation in place to improve our code quality.
      • Review code written by other team members or other teams.
      • Ship to hundreds of thousands of users every day while having lots of autonomy in terms of code and feature ownership.
      • Work with complex and varied data structures (APIs can be a little, uh, eccentric).
      • Help out with our Python backend or Node-based developer platform.
      • Share what you know and learn either one-on-one or with lightning talks to the group.
      • Give back to the community via open source and blog posts.
      • Experiment: this is a startup so everything can change as we experiment with doing more custom partnership work
      • As a part of Zapier's all-hands philosophy, help customers via support to ensure they have the best experience possible.

      You’ll also have the opportunity to specialize in a variety of areas of the Zapier codebase, including core product or platform development. Focusing on a specialization will not limit your area for growth at Zapier as each engineer brings a unique perspective and can contribute differently in all areas. We encourage participation and will frequently have engineers contribute across teams to assist in projects.

      About Zapier

      For the past six years, Zapier has been helping people across the world automate the boring and tedious parts of their job. We do that by helping everyone connect the web applications they already use and love.

      We believe that there are jobs a computer is best at doing and that there are jobs a human is best at doing. We want to empower businesses to create processes and systems that let computers do what they are best at doing and let humans do what they are best at doing.

      We believe that with the right tools, you can have big impact with less hassle.

      We believe in small teams. Small teams are fast and nimble. Small teams mean less bureaucracy and less management and more getting things done.

      We believe in a safe, welcoming, and inclusive environment. All teammates at Zapier agree to a code of conduct.

      The Whole Package

      Location: Planet Earth.

      If you want to work remote, that's great. If you want to work near others, that's cool too. Our team of 100+ is distributed because it lets us work with the best people. You don't have to be located in the USA either. Some team members live in the United Kingdom, Thailand, India, Nigeria, Taiwan, Guatemala, New Zealand, Australia, and more! You just need the skills and drive to succeed in this role and the ability to work from anywhere.

      Compensation:

      • Competitive salary (we don't use remote as an excuse to pay less)
      • Great healthcare + dental + vision coverage*
      • Retirement plan with 4% company match*
      • Profit sharing
      • 2 annual company retreats to awesome places
      • 14 weeks paid leave for new parents of biological or adopted children
      • Pick your own equipment. We'll set you up with whatever Apple laptop + monitor combo you want plus any software you need.
      • Unlimited vacation policy. Plus we require you to take at least 2 weeks off each year. We see most employees take 4-5 weeks off per year. This isn't a vague policy where unlimited vacation means no vacation.
      • Work with awesome companies around the world. We partner with great software companies all over the world and you'll constantly get to interact with people from these great companies

      *While we take care of our international folks as best we can, currently, healthcare and retirement plans are only available to US-based employees.

       

      How To Apply

      We have a non-standard application process. To jump-start the process we ask a few questions we normally would ask at the start of an interview. This helps speed up the process and lets us get to know you a bit better right out of the gate.

      After you apply, you are going to hear back from us, even if we don't seem like a good fit. In fact, throughout the process, we strive to make sure you never go more than seven days without hearing from us.

      Optional: Share anonymously some demographic information about yourself to help us better track trends related to the backgrounds of candidates interested in working at Zapier in order for us to build a team that represents the users at Zapier and the broader world population.

      Zapier is an equal opportunity employer. We're excited to work with talented and empathetic people no matter their race, color, gender, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, or age. Our code of conduct provides a beacon for the kind of company we strive to be, and we celebrate our differences because those differences are what allow us to make a product that serves a global user base.

      • Provide us some references. We use our automated reference check system for this, so you just give us some names, they fill out a survey, and we are all set.

      Bear Group is a leading web development firm based in Seattle looking for an experienced backend web developer to join our team. You will have the opportunity to work with leading companies and marketing teams to develop complex sites and integrations between systems.
       
      We are a fully distributed team that primarily builds in PHP on the Magento and Drupal platforms for ecommerce and content management sites. Since we are fully remote, you can work from anywhere! We do require at least 4 hours of working time overlap with the Pacific time zone work day where most of our clients are located. As a highly client focused organization, you will occasionally need to meet according to their schedule. This typically falls between 10 and 5 Pacific time, and we strive to give you plenty of time to focus on development.
       
      Working with a variety of clients, we fluidly form groups including a Technical Project Manager, a Quality Analyst, and one or more developers to complete sprints of work. The type of work depends on the client, but often includes:
      • Developing client web sites using Drupal and Magento Commerce
      • Focus on front-end development: HTML/CSS/Javascript coding, with Twig and PHP at template level
      • Balancing workload across many projects simultaneously
      • Quality assurance and testing across projects
      • Collaborating cross-functionally and with a diverse group of clients
      • Working with business development to assess and price new client projects
       
      You will need to be self-motivating and able to work independently most of the time, but we have a friendly and capable team to collaborate with when you encounter obstacles. You’ll need to have a minimum of 3-5 years of related work experience, a BA/BS degree, and experience with Drupal, Magento or similar open source frameworks. You’ll also need to be visually oriented with experience in Sketch or Photoshop and a good understanding of content organization and concepts within information architecture. Experience in client-service environments is a must and you’ll need to be professional and client service oriented; positive and proactive; able to react swiftly to meet client expectations.
       
      Since the technology world is constantly evolving, you’ll be expected to keep up with the current technologies and practices. To help with this, we provide an annual education stipend that can be used for attending relevant conferences or continued education courses.
       
      During your first week you will work closely with one or our senior developers to set up your new system and familiarize with our processes and tools. The system will be either Mac, Linux, or Windows to your preference, and we use Docker containers for a consistent development server stack. Other tools you will use include:
      • Git for source control
      • Bitbucket for Git repositories
      • Jira for project management
      • Confluence for documentation
      • Slack for communication.
      As you get your feet under you we will introduce some project work, again in collaboration with a senior developer on a sprint they are currently working on. Ultimately our developers work independently on your own tickets and sprints.
       
      In addition to competitive pay, a new computer, insurance, and 401k match, you’ll also receive:
      • 3 Weeks PTO plus approximately 10 vacation days annually
      • $1500 annual education stipend
      • Software stipend for the tools that you prefer to do the job
      To learn more about the company, visit www.beargroup.com
       
      We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
    • Development specialized on the free software project Open edX, used by many universities and companies to run online courses. See edx.org, stanford.edu or fun-mooc.fr for examples of Open edX instances.

      The Open edX platform is a large Python/Django codebase, with good code standards and architecture (a lot of the edX engineers come from MIT). You would work on different clients contracts using the platform. The clients list/references include Harvard, MIT, edX themselves, the French government, and various startups & universities currently running their own instances, or looking to create one. Tasks are very varied, from developing core platform features, custom exercises and tools for specific courses (XBlocks), customizing and deploying instances, working fullstack, operating our service infrastructure, improving our hosting platform, etc. You won't get bored here.


      Most of your work is published as free software (Open edX is released under the AGPL license, which requires clients to release modifications under the same license), and you would also contribute to the free software project, pushing most of your developments upstream through pull requests, contributing features, documentation or help on mailing-lists.


      - 3+ years working with Python
      - Experience with Python web frameworks, specifically Django
      - 3+ years of HTML, Javascript, and CSS (experience with React is a big plus!)
      - Experience with unit testing
      - You feel comfortable working in a Linux environment, specifically Debian or Ubuntu
      - Experience with databases: MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL
      - Experience with contributing to free software projects, and communicating within a free software community

      You would have to work with tasks from the following categories, but you would be able to pick up the skills on the job if you don't master this yet:

      - DevOps experience, especially on Debian/Ubuntu servers, Terraform, Vault, Packer, Prometheus, ELK, Docker. We are building a modern infrastructure and having a strong DevOps presence on top of core software engineering skills is a big plus with us.

      - Cloud computing, like AWS or OpenStack

      - Configuration management tools such as Ansible

      - RabbitMQ, Redis & Elasticsearch

      - git source control

      - Mobile development (iOS and/or Android)

      - Managing clients & projects from beginning to completion (senior developer)

      - Public speaking at conferences (you would present a talk every year at the Open edX Con)


      We are a team of twenty developers, all working remotely from Europe, North & South America, Asia & Australia. You would arrive at a critical moment, as we scale up to handle increasing demand from clients on the edX platform. The company is not affiliated with edX, but contributing and working with them on various projects. This is a full time position, were you would be able to work remotely from anywhere you want, as long as you have a good internet connexion. : )

      2 months ago
      Note: Although this is a remote position, we are only seeking candidates in European / African timezones between UTC-1 and UTC+3.
       
      We are currently seeking ambitious and pragmatic software engineers who are passionate about building great online apps. You'll use your skills to have a real impact on a product used by over 915,000 users from 190 different countries. We are looking for an engineer who loves being part of a team but is also self-motivated and loves the idea of working remotely.
       
      As a Frontend Software Engineer with Hotjar, you’ll be working on developing and improving features built primarily in JavaScript and AngularJS. You will work closely with other front-end engineers, backend engineers and designers to implement changes to our user interface and tracking script according to best practices. You will need to be highly process driven and eager to learn new technologies and programming languages. We favour those with a delivery-focused mindset, versus a focus on flawless or over-engineered code.
       
      Compensation Range
      The budgeted compensation range for this role is €55,000 to €75,000 annually. Ranges are based on market research and are equitable to other roles within Hotjar. The actual compensation offered will be based on relative experience and skills. At this time we are only able to provide official employment status to those located in Malta. All other team members will join as full-time consultants and will be responsible for paying any taxes or applicable fees where they reside.
       

      Requirements

      • Experience using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, AngularJS and/or other JS frameworks.
      • Experience using Python, PostgreSQL, Redis, Memcached, Lua, Linux, Nginx, Elasticsearch, and Amazon Web Services a plus.
      • Familiarity with automated testing frameworks such as Jest, Karma, Cypress, or Protractor.
      • Familiarity with distributed revision control systems such as Mercurial or Git.

      • Desire to work in a caring, transparent, and giving work environment, in line with Hotjar’s company valuesculture and ways of working.
      • Will submit to a background check, confidentially processed by our third party.
    • We are looking for an expert Javascript developer to help us build frontend apps for our products and services. You will be working with the Vue.js framework primarily, bringing UX to life and developing all the frontend interface and interactions. Experience of working with Vue.js is obviously a plus, but more generally you will need to be a strong all-round Javascript developer with a solid grasp of HTML/CSS as well. If you're also proficient in working with backend Node.js as well, that would be a bonus.

      You will need to be a creative problem solver, as much of the work requires creative approaches to unique technical challenges which often don't have much - if any - coverage on sites such as Stack Overflow.

      The complexity of the software is also a key component. Much of what we are building is concerned with complex data structures (including SVGs) as well as the inevitable complexities of scaling an app out into large organisations. As such, you will need to have a strong engineering mindset with the ability to think through problems in a structured way. Or to put it another way, you should be able to produce robust, tested code that will stand up in production.

      Responsibilities

      • Building robust frontend apps with the Vue.js framework, including unit tests
      • Creating custom single-file components for use in the interfaces
      • Developing applications for parsing and working with XML structures including SVG data
      • Writing clean, well-documented and well-tested code with strong adherence to modern ECMAscript standards
      • Optimising applications for maximum speed and scalability
      • Working with the team to solve complex challenges and contributing ideas and solutions regularly

      • Experience of writing unit tests in tools such as Jest or Mocha (or component snapshots)
      • Familiarity with frontend build tools, particularly Webpack
      • Proficient understanding of code versioning tools including Git
      • Good understanding of browser rendering behavior and performance
      • Bachelors degree in computer science

      Remote

      This position is remote based.

      A brief overview:

      GitLab is building an open source, single application for the entire DevOps lifecycle—from project planning and source code management to CI/CD, monitoring, and security.

      We’re looking to add a Senior Visual Designer/Illustrator to our already large team of UX Designers and UX Researchers to help beautify GitLab's UI and refine our design system. If you're an outstanding Illustrator & Visual Designer who is experienced at designing pixel-perfect UI components for enterprise tools, then you may be a great fit.

      At GitLab, we live and breathe open source principles. This means our entire handbook is online, and with a few clicks you can find the details of future releases and an overview of the product vision you’d contribute to when working here. We’re planning to more than double the UX team's size over the next year. You can look over our organizational chart to see other open vacancies.

      What you can expect in a Senior Visual Designer/Illustrator role at GitLab:

      • You’ll be expected to refine and extend the existing custom icon library, and create illustrations for things like null states, error pages, and supplemental illustrations on design.gitlab.com.
      • You’ll create deliverables (lo-fi wireframes, hi-fi mockups, prototypes, hi-fi visuals etc.) to communicate ideas, as needed.
      • You’ll partner with UX Designers and Researchers to conduct user testing, incorporate feedback, and share findings and recommendations.
      • You’ll review new designs created by UX Designers to help ensure consistency throughout the system.
      • You’ll help create and maintain documentation for the design system.
      • You’ll work with developers to iterate on and refine the UI experience. You’ll also implement designs in HTML/CSS, as needed.
      • You’ll be expected to help break down designs to fit within the monthly release cadence.

      Projects you might work on:

      You’ll spend much of your time helping to move Pajamas Design System components to a "Complete" status. You’ll also identify refinements to optimize existing components, while collaborating with Frontend Engineers, Developers, and UX Designers.

      You should apply if:

      • You have a portfolio of beautifully executed illustrations, enterprise UI designs, and SVGs. (Animated SVGs are a bonus.)
      • You're a master at creating useful icons and elegant UI interactions.
      • You've helped to create a Design System that's implemented in code.
      • You understand accessibility and how it impacts visual design.
      • The idea of playing a key part in the evolution of our Pajamas Design System is truly exciting to you.
      • You’re able to write custom HTML and CSS. (Any JavaScript skills would be a bonus too.)
      • You’ve worked for a company that builds and maintains a deeply complex product.
      • You’re humble and able to freely discuss your own strengths and weaknesses (and those of others), but always in a kind and appropriate way.
      • Our values of collaboration, results, efficiency, diversity, iteration, and transparency resonate with you.

      What it's like to work here at GitLab:

      The culture here at GitLab is something we’re incredibly proud of. Because GitLabbers are currently located in 51 different countries, you’ll spend your time collaborating with kind, talented, and motivated colleagues from across the globe.

      Some of the benefits you’ll be entitled to vary by the region or country you’re in. However, all GitLabbers are fully remote and receive a "no ask, must tell" paid-time-off policy, where we don’t count the number of days you take off annually. You can work incredibly flexible hours, enabled by our asynchronous approach to communication. Also, every nine months or so, we’ll invite you to our Contribute event.

      Our hiring process for this Sr. Visual Designer/Illustrator position typically follows four stages where you’ll speak with one of our Global Recruiters, a UX Designer, a UX Manager and the UX Director. The compensation for this Sr. Visual Designer/Illustrator aligns with the compensation for the UX Design role, which can be found at the bottom of this page.

      We are looking for a thoughtful, detail-oriented developer to be the next member of our growing developer-owned, remote-friendly, people-first, hyphen-loving company. 

      The ideal candidate would have several years of experience working in open source web frameworks. They would also be eager to learn, grow, and foster healthy working relationships. 

      If you have experience building production web applications and are as passionate about helping customers as you are about working with new technologies, then we want to talk! 

      Requirements

      Skills & Requirements


      Do you love to work directly with customers to solve business problems?


      We believe great software is discovered by understanding the core problems our clients are facing – and that is best achieved through frequent and direct communication with the subject matter experts. We provide leadership to support and guide interactions, but we need you to be comfortable talking with clients, discussing problems, and proposing solutions, which may not always be more software. 

      Do you have experience writing production web applications?

       

      We strive to support our team’s growth, learning, and taking on new roles at the edge of our comfort zones. At the same time, our clients expect us to bring a certain level of expertise. If you have never worked on a production web application, it is unlikely you will succeed here, even if you have other types of engineering experience.


      Are you able to work remotely, within +/- 2 hours of US Eastern time zone?


      We all mostly work from home. This requires the ability to self-direct and communicate well in writing. It also offers tremendous freedom and power, which comes with, uh, tremendous responsibility. We currently require our team to be within a 2hr time zone difference of Richmond, VA and physically based in the United States.

       Bonus Points

      Being within easy driving distance of Richmond or Charlottesville is a huge plus!

      Experience with:

      Open source web development platforms (Rails, Django, Node.js)

      Writing tests and using automated testing frameworks

      Modern HTML/CSS (nothing crazy, we have a design team)

      JavaScript and front-end JavaScript frameworks

      Linux/Infrastructure/DevOps

      AWS/cloud architectures

      Mobile-first development, iOS/Android, React Native, etc.

      WHAT WE OFFER

      A Great Team – Our team of engineers and designers is the best part of working here. We only hire people who are fantastic teammates – competent and smart, sure, but also humble, positive, and generous.

      Great Clients – We work with mostly small and medium clients, for whom our projects make a huge impact. We prioritize clients who are pleasant and good to work with, people who share our values of transparency and empathy.

      Work From Home – We are a distributed company. Everyone works from home, though the leadership team all live in central Virginia.

      Negligible Travel – In general, we don’t travel routinely for projects. If this is a specific concern, we’re happy to discuss.

      Flexible Work Schedule – We require a certain amount of overlap with the rest of the team, but if you have a predictable schedule, we can probably support it, e.g., ending at 3:30 every day or being out every Friday morning.

      Good Work Life Balance (really) – We ask our team to work 40 hours a week*. That’s all: a good, productive 40 hours. And then we try our best to leave you alone off the clock. We do this in part because that’s how we want to live but also because we want our team to be recharged and ready to do their best when working. *If you need to work fewer than 40 hours, that might be possible too; let’s talk.

      Competitive Compensation – We offer highly competitive salary and benefits, including generous time off, 401k, FSA, medical and dental insurance.
