Reports to: Director of Software Development

OXD is looking for a Senior JavaScript developer to help our professional services team. OXD was founded by a software developer—and over 20 years later engineering continues to be at the core of our business. We provide technology consulting on large-scale web applications, including key public service projects (helping to make paying tolls... well, a little better) and major global brands (including anything from helping kids "catch 'em all" to helping technicians configure complex machinery).


As a key member of the project team you will:

  • Work with a small and focused team to design and develop new features and releases
  • Collaborate with other team members to flesh out technical requirements
  • Work across the full stack of application layers
  • Work in an Agile environment
  • Champion technical decisions and implement elegant solutions to the tasks at hand

How you like to work

You're in your element when working in an integrated team that is small, flexible, and agile. You're eager to be heard and contribute to the team without an ego. You care about productivity and strive to help teams collaborate more effectively and efficiently. You know that communication, presentation, and interpersonal skills are simply a part of the development process. You like to solve complex problems and are open to different approaches. You love learning new technologies and keep on top of emerging trends. You believe in the importance of having a life outside of work.

Is this the right fit for you?

A degree helps, but what you've been doing for the past few years is important to us too. Do you have a passion for learning? Are you user-centric? Do you want to build applications that run fast, look good, and solve real business problems?
