Software Development


2014-05-13 06:26


It’s easy to throw down some jQuery, install random plugins, and carry on. Before you know it you’re staring at a thousand lines of untested spaghetti. The next developer will probably rewrite everything as another 800 lines of untested spaghetti.

Of course there’s better ways to write JavaScript these days — perhaps too many ways. We’re looking for people who can investigate issues, get to know the problem domain, and devise the right solution.


  • Know a thing or two about performance.
  • Test rigorously & continuously.
  • Use build systems such as Grunt, Gulp, Make, Sprockets, etc.
  • Enjoy working with RESTful APIs.
  • Are proactive, organized & vocal about everything you do.
  • Have seen & like what we’re doing with this Solidus thing.

On any given day you might...

  • Help us identify patterns in our projects & address with reusable modules wherever sensible. Package up, open source & maintain.
  • Research, evaluate & integrate third-party modules & services. Document issues & contribute as needed.
  • Research, investigate, and respond to issues for projects of our own.
  • Contribute to the development of product UI for Storyteller.io & Universe.
  • Contribute to the development of Solidus, particularly in the areas of templating & assets.
  • Write great documentation.
  • Maintain JS coding standards & enforce with tooling & code review.
  • Work on agency projects of distinction & potential for exploration and testing of new ideas.
