Javascript Application Engineer
We are looking for experienced JavaScript Application Engineers to join us in building the future of our SaaS Learning Management Platform.
As part of our growing platform development team, your day to day would be entirely focused on creating brand new features and iterating on existing functionality in our application. You would be responsible for taking development projects from written requirements through completion, coordinating with QA and the product team along the way.
This is a full-time remote position open to U.S. applicants (No recruiters/contractors please!). Our development team is entirely remote while other departments are a blend of remote and on-site in our Boston office.
You would be a good fit if...
  • You are excited about newer JavaScript technologies like GraphQL, but also about integrating with and enhancing an existing codebase.
  • You are comfortable exploring unfamiliar code, digging in to understand how all the existing pieces fit together in order to build something new.
  • You enjoy working on everything from UI components to API integrations to data processing.
  • You sweat the small stuff, but know when to ship it.
  • You take ownership of your work and pride in what you deliver.
Knowledge & Experience
  • 5+ years experience developing web-based applications
  • Proficiency with JavaScript, and ideally Node.js
  • Experience working across the full stack
  • Self-motivated with little oversight (but plenty of team support!)
  • Previous remote experience is preferred
Our stack consists primarily of Node.js with Koa, GraphQL, and Ember.js. That said, we are open to any framework experience you might have as the concepts will be familiar. Ideal candidates will have broad experience and the ability to quickly learn new things, rather than expertise in our current set of tools.

An Insider's view of Thought Industries

What’s the vibe like in the office?

High performance, high energy, low pressure, family; those are some things that come to mind. Every department has its own styles. The common theme is hard work for sure, mixed with business oriented but still relaxed and easy going. Everyone is in it for the next person. It genuinely feels like a family.


Project Manager

What does your typical day look like?

My day officially begins at 8:30A.M, throughout the day I am in & out of meetings, personalizing emails & prospecting new accounts. Cold calling may not sound glorious , but Thought Industries makes work enjoyable with moments spent chit-chatting with other members of ‘the pit’, petting office dogs, snacking on food & coffee that is provided for us


BDR Team Lead

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I joined Thought Industries when we first launched. I learned to wear many hats and understand various aspects by working with/in each department. As we grew I was supported in developing core skills specific to my career passion. Thought Industries continues to support, mentor and develop our employees and that is something to take a lot of pride.
