This month - Remote Ajax jobs
  • NearForm

    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.

  • Binary Evolution
    PROBABLY NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

    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.

    • Beach accessible, no suits and ties - If you love the mountains, the beach, or the city, you can work where you feel most comfortable. We believe that remote is productive and are happy to have self motivated people that can give their best where ever they feel the most comfortable.
    • Health, Vision, Dental, and Life Insurance - Competitive rates and we cover most of your cost
    • 401K - Competitive retirement plans with self managed or advisor managed options
    • Flexible Time - Delivering work on time is critical. Beyond that, we realize not everyone works best 9-5. Some people like the quiet of the early morning, others are night owls. A few like to work on the weekends and golf on Monday. If you can get work done we can find ways to flex hours (within reason) so that you can work when you work best, and play when you play best.
    • Competitive Salary & Work-Life Balance - We reward you for your experience and effort without crazy work days. unrealistic expectation, or burnout.
    • Equipment and Tools -  We provide cutting edge machines and best-in-class software. If you prefer to own your own machine, we provide financial sharing as well.

    Skills & requirements

    Okay - I’m intrigued; what would my job role be?

    You would work daily with CSS, HTML, JavaScript, and Smarty templates (with a little PHP). We are looking for a fast learner with an aptitude for problem solving, writing clean code, and a strong desire to deliver an excellent user experience. You would also work closely with the project manager, UI/UX, and QA teams to ensure overall production quality and timeliness. If elegant templates, clean division in code and styling, and flexible usability make you smile, you may be exactly who we are looking for.

    What other skills could I bring to the table in this role?

    • Knowledge of PHP, MySQL and other similar web and mobile technologies
    • Self motivated. We don’t micro manage, but that means you need to be able to take direction and get things done without needing that manager standing over you waiting for TPS reports. We don’t want to be that guy.
    • Experience with source control (GIT) and agile methodologies
    • Excellent communication skills for interacting with co-workers and clients
    • A good sense of humor and the ability to handle the occasional bad pun or 80’s movie references. It may be last on the list but may be the most important. We can teach you the finer points of a technology, but we need someone who can work well on a team, enjoy making cool stuff, can get things done, and generally is fun to work with.
