JavaScript Developer

Come help Axelerant make happiness possible for yourself and others as our next JavaScript Developer. We’re a services company dedicated to making the world a happier place and we want more like-minded, passionate, communicative, and giving folks to join us.

As an Axelerant JavaScript Developer, you will be working hard as you would be designing and implementing the look-and-feel of websites and related materials by creating interfaces, interactions, and components for internal and client-facing web projects. Next, you’ll develop for multiple devices and interactions (such as desktops, touch devices like smartphones and tablets, and simpler devices like feature phones). 

You will be building highly interactive single page application, reactive interfaces, and back-ends for these application.

Beyond communicating early and collaborating often, you will be needed to consistently review, revise and propose strategies to achieve short and long term goals. You are expected to always be open to ideas and feedback. Furthermore, you need to ensure documenting features, technical specifications and infrastructure requirements.

If you’re looking for your exact responsibilities, bah humbug. We're a real world organization, and there're going to be times when the unexpected happens, and you’re going to need to step up. We don’t know what it’s going to be or when, but it’ll be a challenge; it could be boring, or it could be something amazing. Either way we get through together, as a team.

Past the role itself, as a person, when you don’t know the answer or are not sure what’s next, be willing to say such and go find out. If you’ve got something to share, do so, whether in our Slack channels or on our blog.

Ultimately, we’re about getting the right things done at the right time and those who are passionate, open, and giving about whatever they’re masters of, will fit into Axelerant.

We’re an organization with team members spread across multiple cultures and time zones. As such, you must be self-motivated in finding the right things to do and communicating proactively in English with the rest of the team.
