Our current technology stack is:
- Node (using express)
- AngularJS (being migrated over to React)
- MongoDB (interfaced with Mongoose)
- Python (using both CherryPy and Flask)
We write our code exclusively using ES6/ES7, and expect a candidate to have an understanding of the common ES6/7 patterns, such as async/await, classes, etc. This understanding should be built on a comprehension of the underlying technology, such as generators, promises, and ES5 patterns.
Although we do not have complete unit test coverage, we have been developing our test coverage using mocha/chai with expect. Any significant changes should be checked in along with a unit test proving the codes reliability.
We use Git as version control, and expect a pull request to be made daily, even if work is not done. This is so that the senior developers can review the work and make sure that everyone is on the right track.
If you do not know every piece of our tech stack but are willing to learn, we would be happy to consider you based on your level of experience with other technologies. However, you must have the necessary experience to learn our tech stack quickly and be able to produce independently within a short period of time.
The ideal candidate will understand the importance of communication and be able to function effectively on a team. There is already a significant amount of code, some of which is very complex, and any candidate that would be considered would need to be able to read complex code and gain an understanding of the way that it functions. At the same time, we strongly encourage our developers to approach senior developers frequently and ask questions, both to test their understanding and to gain an understanding of code which is non-obvious.
As a company, we do not look down on those who ask questions, but we take a very dim view of those who attempt to write code without fully understanding the implications of the changes they are making. In our perspective, asking questions, learning independently, attempting to improve existing processes, and even disagreeing with and teaching the senior developers new techniques, technologies, patterns, and ideas are all strongly encouraged. Lying during the course of this project, such as "Yes, I ran the unit tests before initiating the deployment" or "I made sure that my code did not have any unintended side effects" are grounds for immediate dismissal if those statements are demonstrably false.
We value people and relationships over maximizing profit, and we strive to ensure that everyone who works for us considers it to be the best job that they've ever had. We will work to help resolve any issues that may arise which hinder your ability to do the best work you can do, or enjoy your time working with us. Creativity is encouraged, and we never punish those who correct senior developers, management, etc.
We have a strong corporate philosophy of personal responsibility and loyalty, characteristics which we consider to go both ways. Upon finding the right candidate, we will be loyal to him or her, so long as he or she is able to function in the team and produce the type of code at the level of quality our customers expect. We believe in rewards over punishments, and try to live this philosophy.
Although not strictly necessary, basic CSS knowledge is a definite plus. We use a SASS compiler in developing the CSS.
