JavaScript Application Engineer
Thought Industries
 
We're looking for a JavaScript Application Engineer to help us build out our SaaS Learning Business Platform. Your day to day would consist of improving existing functionality and building new functionality & integrations. We keep meetings to a minimum, so most of your day would be spent coding.
You would be a good fit if:
  • You are excited about new JavaScript technologies like Prettier and GraphQL, but also comfortable mixing them with older technology.
  • You sweat the small stuff, but know when to ship it.
  • You are passionate about listening to users & building elegant web products.
  • You are comfortable navigating a large existing codebase and learning new technologies and techniques along the way.
  • You have 2+ years of experience working in a team production environment shipping code.
  • We are looking to add multiple team members across frontend and backend roles, so we are open to your experience across the stack.

Our stack consists primarily of Node.js with Koa, GraphQL, and Ember.js. Although we are an Ember shop, we are open to any framework experience you might have as the concepts will likely be familiar.
Throughout the day, we rely on Airtable, Slack and GitHub pull requests. The development team is completely distributed across the US, and has been since the inception of Thought Industries — we haven't bolted on remote processes due to COVID-19, we've always done it this way, so you'll feel right at home.

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

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.
