JOB DETAILS
 

Devpost's mission is to inspire the world's developers to build great software. Developers consider us their go-to site for discovering & competing in the world's software competitions (hackathons), & for finding inspiration to build their next big project. As a developer on our team, you'll help them do that daily.

Customers who trust us to inspire these developers include Amazon, Google, TechCrunch, Microsoft, Atlassian, Facebook, Block.one, DocuSign, Twitter, Snapchat, many startups & non-profits, & more. The global market for new software & its makers has exploded, & we're uniquely positioned to provide developers with a platform for what matters to them: learning, community, & professional opportunity.

Our goals are centered around a close relationship with our users, & a dedication to continuously improving our platform & ourselves to meet their needs. Our purpose is firmly rooted in the belief that technology can bring about important change & improve lives.

What We're Looking For:

You have a strong commitment to building great, well-factored code. You take pride in your work. You do well in teams. Developers & designers you've worked with think highly of you & your work.

As a web developer on our small team, you'll have a huge impact on all of our current & future projects. You'll contribute to product design, implementation, deployment, refinement, & maintaining production.

For the past several years, you've been:

  • Creating production software (3+ years), with at least 2 of those years creating web applications in Ruby on Rails or similar

  • Using practices to improve code quality & reduce bugs (e.g. code reviews, automated tests)

  • Treating software engineering as a craft & exploring it outside of your day job

We'd Like to See:

  • Experience developing, releasing, & maintaining web applications

  • Comfort with a server-side MVC framework (e.g. Ruby on Rails, Django, etc.)

  • Ability to write clean, readable code

  • Comfort with relational and/or non-relational databases

  • Attention to software development fundamentals

  • Track record of collaboration & leadership in agile software methodologies

Bonus Points:

  • Experience with infrastructure configurations & maintenance

  • Comfortable with macOS & unix based operating systems

  • Experience with modern front-end technologies, libraries & frameworks (e.g. ES6, Vue.js/React, etc.)

  • Evidence of community involvement, i.e. open source contributions on Github, StackOverflow questions/answers, SlideShare presentations, Devpost portfolio showcasing your projects

Salary & Benefits:

  • Competitive Salary

  • Stock Options

  • Great Benefits

The position is for full-time employment. We're based in New York, but remote employees are welcome.

If you're interested in making a meaningful difference in the world through your code on day one, send us a copy of your resume & a cover letter sharing a little about you & why you might be a good fit. Please also provide a link to source code for a recent project that exemplifies your work.
