Job Summary

You've worked with many programming languages, but you love working with [the good parts of] JavaScript the most. You have a strong understanding of closures and the prototypal features of the language, and you enjoy writing code that is expressive and elegant. You often come up with innovative solutions to problems but will always use the best tool for the job. You enjoy working in a decentralized, team-based environment, and you're great at getting things done both autonomously and by pair-programming with a teammate.

Most of our code is written in Ruby and runs on the Rails stack backed by a MySQL database, but we also incorporate other technologies such as Node.js, Memcached and Redis. We use GitHub for version control and our infrastructure is entirely hosted via cloud services.

This is a full-time position at our headquarters in Dallas, TX and includes a competitive base salary, a full range of benefits, and an awesome team of creative people by your side.
