Experienced Full Stack Web Developer
Emberex is looking for an experienced full stack web developer to join our team. Sometimes, we hire junior or entry-level developers - this just isn’t one of those times. We need someone who already knows what they’re doing - solving problems, writing front-end and back-end code and SQL queries, working with a team of devs, designers, and QA. So you’re gonna need at least three years of professional web development experience in order to convince us to take a chance on you.
We build and maintain a variety of web and mobile applications, mostly related to online education and research projects. We do a lot of stuff with React and TypeScript, as well as a bit of php or whatever makes sense for the project. We like MySql and PostgreSQL. We rely heavily on existing frameworks and libraries, so we don’t have to constantly reinvent the wheel - which, incidentally, gives us more time to say really clever things like, “reinvent the wheel.” It’s really helpful if you already know how to use some or all of these technologies, but we understand that great developers will quickly learn whatever they need to know to get a project done.
You’ll work on a team with developers, digital designers, QA analysts, and a guy who mostly just makes sure everyone else knows what they’re supposed to be doing. You won’t find your calendar filled with useless meetings - instead, you’ll spend most of your time writing code, or maybe talking to your coworkers about writing code.
We use tools that make sense for the job - stuff like ticket tracking systems, code repositories, and Storybook. We review each other’s code and talk about edge cases and alternate solutions, balancing technical considerations with business needs.
We have an office in downtown Eugene and, at least for now, a hybrid policy that’s best described as, “many of us work in the office some of the time” - we don’t currently have strict rules about working in the office or working at home, but It would be really useful for you to be able to go in when it makes sense. And when you do, you’ll find a break room full of snacks, a game room full of games, and sometimes even a dog or two.
Starting wage depends on experience, but it’ll probably be between $36 and $50/hr. In addition, you’ll receive benefits including health, vision and dental insurance, paid time off, a yearly bonus, matching 401k, and more. And someday we’d like to start having in-office massages again - there’s just so much to look forward to!
If you’re interested in the job, please submit a cover letter and resume to: [email protected]
And finally, two important notes:
* A note about cover letters: We’ve seen a lot of them - some good, some bad. We like the good ones. It’s your first chance to show us you’re the kind of person we’d like to have on our team. Tell us about yourself, relevant stuff that will help convince us to talk to you, stuff we won’t see in your education and job history.
* A note about resumes: We’ve seen a lot of them, too. We like to be able to quickly understand what’s included. Organization is important. Writing about yourself in the third person is weird.
