Job Description

Preference is given for local Austin, TX candidates or those willing to re-locate however this role is remote until mid 2021.

Our client is looking for a Senior Developer in Javascript (emphasis on React or Node) who is capable of designing and architecting serverless systems using services like AWS's Lambda.  

You will be taking on an exciting project that involves working to redesign and rebuild existing web services and a desktop application. While you will have access to the existing team to learn about what exists today, you will largely drive this project

A successful candidate will be someone who is a self-starter and strongly focused on "getting stuff done".  You don't mind making tough decisions that will help shape and impact the project. The more of a product perspective that you have, the better. Ideally, we'd point this person at these problems that we have today, and they would be able to ask the right questions, design/implement solutions, showcase issues they find, and offer suggestions.

Future growth could include adding a few team members alongside this engineer to form a small team focused on these efforts. There is also the possibility a strong technical leader comes in and inspires and guides the existing desktop team to learn new skills in web development. There could even be other projects and teams that you may also find exciting - internal movement is quite common and there are a myriad of interesting projects going on for which you can jump in on. 


  • A JavaScript pro with deep, demonstrable experience working in various JS libraries and frameworks. (React / Node preference)
  • Architectural capabilities.
  • Heavy experience working with AWS Lambda  
  • A veteran of development who comes with "war stories" to share about their achievements
  • Experience in a startup environment would be a huge plus. Experience starting a new project or showcasing how you personally have affected noticeable change on a project.
  • Strong opinions on how things should be done. Able to affect change and influence. 

This is a great company, with strong benefits, great culture, and a highly successful leadership team.
