Full Stack Web Developer

Emberex is looking for a full-stack web developer to join our team. We have an office in downtown Eugene, full of smart, creative people, lots of tasty snacks, and sometimes a dog.

We build and maintain a variety of web and mobile applications, mostly related to online education and research projects. We often use JavaScript or TypeScript, node.js, PHP, Java, or whatever makes sense for the project. We like MySql and PostgreSQL. We use a lot of frameworks and libraries. Sometimes we build progressive web apps or native iOS/Android apps.

We’d love it if you already have experience with some 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 other developers, digital designers, QA analysts and a couple of people who mostly just make sure everyone else knows what they’re supposed to be doing. You’ll spend most of your time writing code, sometimes by yourself and sometimes with your teammates. The team sits close enough that it’s easy to communicate and collaborate. We use a ticket tracking system and code repositories. We like to talk about the best way to get stuff done, balancing technical considerations with business needs.

When you’re not writing code, you might find yourself playing ping pong, foosball, darts, or Golden Tee. You might be clawing your way into playoff position in fantasy football or discussing what’s really in that magic stuff they spray on soccer players when they’re faking injuries. Or you might be relaxing on a couch in a quiet room that’s named after a movie.

Starting wage depends on experience. In addition, you’ll receive benefits including health, vision and dental insurance, paid time off, a yearly bonus, matching 401k, disability insurance, in-office massages, and more.

If you’re interested in the job, please submit a cover letter and resume to: info@emberex.com

And finally, three important notes:

* A note about location: This is a full time, in-house position - while we are flexible about occasional work from home, we aren’t interested in remote employees or contractors. If you don’t live in the Eugene area but you’re willing to relocate, we’ll consider a brief initial phone interview to help us decide if we want to meet you in person.

* A note about cover letters: We’ve seen a lot of them - some good, some bad. We like the good ones better. It’s your first chance to show us you’re the kind of person we’d like to have around the office. 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.
