Junior-level Developer @ The Greatest Good

This position has been filled for now - sorry!

Hey, you junior-level developer with a love of learning! Let’s work together!

Since I can’t say too much publicly about the fun consumer-facing projects we’re building here at The Greatest Good, let me tell about our values.

Love what you do - If we don’t consistently love our work and coming into the office, something is broken. We proactively work to identify and eliminate those problems to keep the love alive.

Always be learning - I’m frequently the dumbest guy in the room here. It’s awesome. If hearing phrases like “chi-squared distribution” or “k-means clustering” sets your heart a-flutter, we might be perfect for each other.

Constant transparency - We approach building products with a pragmatic, agile mindset. Primarily, this means a level of trust and transparency that’s often hard to find elsewhere. No egos and no agendas other than building the best products we can.

There’s much more I can say about us, but I’d rather tell you in-person.

What You'll Be Doing

  • Working directly with me to hack on a variety of projects primarily for the web. Our projects tend to have tough problems and large exposure, so you'll constantly be on the cutting edge of software.
  • Using a variety of tools and languages but primarily Clojure to write expressive, well-tested, and production-ready code.
  • Seeking and sharing knowledge constantly with our peers and at local events.

What You Should Bring

  • High level of familiarity with a modern language. Clojure would be great, but Ruby / Python / Java / Javascript are great too.
  • Familiarity with working and programming on *nix / OSX.
  • Fearless learning about new problems, new languages, and new techniques.
  • Code samples and activity on Github.
  • Positive attitude. No whining.

What You Get in Return

  • A competitive salary.
  • A casual work environment.
  • Encouragement and support to speak at local and national conferences.
  • All the benefits you would typically expect in a job.

How to Apply

Looking forward to meeting you!
