What will your day look like?
With your first (of many) cups of coffee in hand, you skip the traffic-packed drive and stroll down the hall to your home office. Turn on your monitor and join the daily standup. Call done, hit play on your favourite playlist, tap the volume key a few times and get in the zone. First on your list for today is to review some GitHub pull requests that need your attention. The rest of the morning goes by working on a feature for the weekly client demo. Lunchtime arrives and you head to your yoga class. Feeling stretched and relaxed, you make yourself something to eat, grab (another) cup of coffee and get back to work. Some remote problem solving with the team and then it’s back to code. Hunger calls and you know it’s time to shut the laptop. After catching up on everyone’s day, you go pack for your trip to NodeConf the next day.
What will you be doing?
At NearForm, we work with international clients who are industry leaders in their respective fields. Our role is to help them build solutions and platforms; help them to launch new product ventures and fundamentally change how they operate.
Join a highly skilled multidisciplinary team; typically consisting of designers, front-end and back-end experts, DevOps engineers, and also members of the client team. This mix follows a modern agile development methodology where we run 2-week sprints with a defined backlog, daily standups, weekly demos, sprint planning and sprint retros; all with as little ceremony as necessary.

What will you get?
Why do you want to join the team?
We adopt a person-first approach to hiring. That means we hire the best people – it’s as simple as that. Our lucky HR team gets to pick the cream of the crop from around the world and has brought together a collection of dynamic and talented individuals we like to call ‘NearFormers’.
Although we are widely dispersed, NearFormers are a tightly-knit team. We trust one another and care about our colleagues. Building on our open source origins, we promote the sharing of thoughts, knowledge and ideas.
NearForm is committed to shaping a better world in all that we do. Our global team is built based on respect, inclusivity, diversity and excellence.
Hey! Yes you, the amazing developer that is looking for a great place to work.
Do you want to work in a well organized, fast paced (but low pressure) environment where your expertise is valued and leveraged? Do you love a realistic challenge with great clients where your efforts are appreciated and make a real difference? We want you to push yourself, and others, to operate efficiently and effectively to develop industry leading applications for the web and mobile markets.
What do you mean by “Organized"?
No TPS reports here! We have a well defined, internal project management and development cycle that we use to deliver on time and on spec. You get to focus on what you love to do and we remove a lot of the frustrations that would distract you from being the web ninja you know you are. We also believe in building tools to make the work day easier. As a member of our production team you get to identify areas where our R&D team can build better systems to make what you do every day easier. That leaves you time to take things to the next level, rather than rewriting that same code for the 15th time. You will work with the best tools, clear specifications, and room to do what you do best.
Okay, but how would this work? I like where I live.
Great! We hope you do. If you don’t you can go where you want to go. We believe where you choose to live is a personal choice, not one we should make for you. We are passionate about our team members enjoying life and taking time for what they love to do. Our philosophy is that a happy team member is a productive one. To that end we offer all kinds of extras.
