ThemeIsle: FrontEnd Developer

Authentic Jobs - Full Stream -

Full-time

(Anywhere) DESCRIPTION

I bet you don’t want to end up being that person who always complains about their work when talking to friends and family, do you? Bet you’d much rather have something to brag about instead and do something that has real impact on the community and possibly on hundreds of thousands of people around the world. This is the kind of job we want you for!

Hi, we’re ThemeIsle and we’re looking for a skilled front-end developer to join our team.

We’ve been on the WordPress themes market for a couple of years now, and we’ve developed a number of successful themes during this time. For instance, our flagship creation – Zerif Lite – is used on 150,000 websites, and if we safely assume that each of those sites has 20+ visitors, that’s a reach of over three million people. Additionally, two of our free themes are in the top 20 most popular themes in the official WordPress directory.

If you feel that your skills can get us even further, read on.

The first thing we expect from a front-end developer is to be very result-oriented and have the dedication to get the job done. You’ll be given a lot of freedom, and you’ll have real impact on our biggest and best products.

But as you know … with great power comes great responsibility. Ideally, you should be ready to lead our front-end development across all of our WordPress themes and the rest of our projects. 

REQUIREMENTS

(Remote work from the other side of the globe is okay. But if you’re from Bucharest and willing to work with us at the office, that's bonus points for you.)

  • Extensive WordPress development skills/experience, an understanding of the platform, its abilities and limitations
  • Knowledge of JavaScript, jQuery, HTML5 and CSS3, SASS
  • Good sense of UI and UX design
  • Responsive Web development with Bootstrap 
  • Experience with Photoshop and Illustrator 
  • Ability to work with a team in an organized way
  • Genuine goal of helping people through the creations you’re building as a developer

Nice-to-have skills:

  • Angular, React experience 
  • Experience with Git
  • Experience with WordPress themes development

You don’t need to have years of experience, but you have to be willing to learn things quickly and not be afraid to experiment with technologies that are new to you.

BENEFITS

You’ll get to work with a young team of WordPress enthusiasts, programmers, designers, and even active bloggers and writers. WordPress themes don’t have to be boring(!) – that’s our primary motto – and we’re doing everything we can to prove it … starting from our site design (focused around pirates and rum), to our whole work attitude in general.

- Be part of a diverse team - we're 20 people spread across three continents 

- Flexible times - results are more important then the time you arrive at the office

- Super nice workspace (dual monitor environment, standing desk)

- Downtown office, in an easy to reach area (Piata Romana). Remote working is also an option.

- Yummy coffee 

- Private medical insurance 

- Attending yearly WordCamp Europe (the largest WordPress conference) with the rest of the team

- Fun activities and retreats

  • We are bootstrapped, profitable, and growing very quickly.
  • We put a high emphasis on work / life balance, and we value and strive for 40 hour work weeks. There aren't set hours, but there's a lot to get done!
  • We have a positive, vibrant, and genuine culture.
  • ConvertKit is used by 17,000+ bloggers, podcasters, authors, and creators!

(San Francisco, CA) Front End Software Engineer Visor

About us:
We built Visor because we believe everyone should have full ownership over their financial life. With the help of dynamic tax advisors and intelligent technology, we create a financial strategy that optimizes your assets and income.

Technology can’t do everything, and neither can people. Our tool harnesses machine learning to pinpoint exact deductions, giving our advisors a data-driven understanding that maximizes your savings.

We will file tax returns for you, but we want to do more than that. We believe in relationships with real experts. You can connect to your advisor through our app. Their team guides you through life’s red tape and simplifies your finances.

We’re helping a grad student save thousands of dollars, advising a young professional on home ownership, and celebrating with a client when she expands her family — because that has tax implications, too.

Above all, we’re dedicated to turning this messy, complicated tax code into an experience that’s transparent and personable. We take care of everything because we love taxes (much) more than you do.

The Role:

We are just getting started and are looking for curious and empathetic front end engineers who would love to be a part of shaping this product vision with us.

  • We can’t offer you artisan drinking water from a hidden valley in Norway but we can offer you the opportunity to work directly with the founders in shaping and executing this vision.
  • We can’t offer you massages every day but we can offer you a tremendous amount of ownership and technical learning in your career.
  • We can’t offer you ping pong tables (or at least not this year), but a 401K and insurance benefits do make the cut.


Our Ideal Candidate:

  • Has hands on experience in HTML, Javascript, and CSS
  • Has at least 3 years of overall experience in crafting, building and shipping user experiences and product in front-end frameworks like React, Angular
  • Likes to build responsive user-facing web applications that are built with mobile and desktop in mind
  • Has experience with medium to large-scale web applications
  • Has solid understanding of interface design principles
  • Is known for good aesthetic taste and design sense
  • Cares a lot about delivering high-quality maintainable code
  • Has experience turning mockups and wireframes into elegantly executed code
  • Likes to work with product, design and other stakeholders in the company to identify customer pain points, come up with solutions, prototype, iterate and ship daily
  • Has used version control systems (Git, Subversion etc.)
  • Has experience with Python or other major OO language like Java, Ruby
  • Is very independent and have ability to self-direct
  • Has strong analytical skills and algorithms knowledge
  • Has excellent command of written and spoken English
  • Is a quick learner and keen to learn new tools, languages, and technologies
  • Has a deep understanding of basic CS fundamentals
  • Likes to improve developer productivity by investing in tools, frameworks and internal products

What We Can Offer:
We dress casually; work hard; laugh loudly and are ambitious on the impact we want to make in people’s lives. In addition:

  • We offer generous medical, dental, and vision coverage.
  • Competitive salary, 401(k), and equity compensation.
  • An unlimited vacation policy means you can enjoy time away from work.
  • We have fun during snack breaks, weekly lunches, and regular community events.

Analytics Fire: Solutions Architect - Ruby/Python/React

Authentic Jobs - Full Stream -

Full-time

(Anywhere) Job Description

Analytics Fire builds custom software for the solar power industry. We’re looking for a collaborative but hands-on Solutions Architect to help us scale our execution to support additional new high-tech sectors.

 

Analytics Fire is a deeply technical engineering organization. Most of us are software engineers and spend the majority of our time on heads down engineering activities like coding. Our goal in creating this position is to expand our small client-facing team with a unique person that has both the personality and the technical skill set to collaborate directly with clients and senior members of the technical team in order to help steer technical decision making and requirements gathering, especially early in the project lifecycle.

 

This position is similar to that of a technical Program Manager, but you will be much more involved in the technical details and hurdles around software architecture than a traditional Project Manager would be. Our ideal candidate is a current or former full stack Software Engineer that is willing to be trained in formal Program Management processes (or has already been trained in formal Program Management processes).

 

As a small company, Analytics Fire is able to tailor roles around the strengths of our individual team members. We will tailor this role to your specific technical background. However, it is a hard requirement that you are able to support the following 3 types of responsibilities:

 

  • (a) Represent Analytics Fire software engineering teams in client-facing interactions (and sometimes interactions with potential clients)

  • (b) Technical writing responsibilities such as documenting requirements, project plans, system architecture, etc.

  • (c) Making meaningful contributions to the execution of complex software projects.

 

For reference, here is a list of technologies and tools we are currently actively using on a day-to-day basis:

 

  • Front-end: JavaScript / React / Angular

  • Back-end: Ruby / Python / Node.js

  • Embedded (IoT): C, Embedded Linux, MQTT

  • Embedded (robotics): C/C++, ROS

  • Modern software techniques: RESTful APIs, SOA, PaaS, etc

  • Agile collaboration and devops tools: Github, Trello, Slack, Chef, Ansible, Docker, Vagrant, etc

  • Other technologies we are currently building with: AWS / Salesforce platform / iOS / ARKit

 

Your primary responsibility will be to assist in guiding new projects through sales, planning, development, and deployment. This will be accomplished through a combination of client interactions, technical writing, and participation in formal sales, program management, and engineering related processes. Your contributions will naturally be slightly front-loaded towards the sales and planning phases, however you will remain deeply connected to each project through the entire lifecycle in order to ensure conceptual integrity is maintained from design to final implementation.

 

This is a remote position but is only open to candidates living in the US or Canada. We’re flexible about location and hours. We’re a really great match for candidate who wants to work hard on interesting projects, while also having flexibility around time and geography.

Skills & Requirements

“Must have” requirements:

 

  • 5+ years relevant hands-on experience as a full stack Software Engineer, DevOps engineer, or Site Reliability Engineer, ideally within a commercial startup environment.

  • Fluency around current modern best practices around software development and DevOps.

  • Soft skills necessary to navigate and negotiate with multiple teams, both internal and external to Analytics Fire.

  • Ability and willingness to familiarize yourself with our technical stack.

  • Superior organization and detail orientation.

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

  • Willingness to design, document, and evangelize new engineering processes to meet evolving organizational requirements.

 

“Nice to have” requirements:

 

  • Former work experience or training as a technical Program Management.

  • Technical experience with Ruby, Python, or Node.js.

About Analytics Fire

Analytics Fire was founded by a couple of data-nerds -- one a PHd in machine learning and the other a former VP of Engineering for an analytics platform -- who both are also serial entrepreneurs backed by prominent angels and VCs including Y Combinator and 500 Startups.

 

“We founded Analytics Fire to create the engineering department that we always dreamed of working for. To us that means being able to spend our time working on interesting technical problems, while simultaneously having flexibility around time and geography and being part of a small, tightly-knit team of world-class engineers.”
