About the job:

We are looking for a front-end engineer with design talent to help us rethink the way that people read, understand, and annotate texts. Your mission will be to iterate quickly on Casetext's client side.

We aren't looking for experience with a particular set of languages. Instead, you should be comfortable collaborating with other engineers on a diverse software architecture. We use cutting-edge technology, and are looking to push the boundaries of what you can do with JavaScript and CSS -- if this excites you, you're a good fit.

Our front-end is a single-page AngularJS application written with Jade and Less.js that uses Firebase, a cutting-edge real-time datastore, to make the site incredibly fast and responsive. Our back-end stack includes ElasticSearch, NodeJS, Go, and Python. We value people who are excited to learn new things. You should be able (and excited) to learn new languages relatively quickly and improve the quality of your code as you go. Giving and receiving feedback is part of the team culture. You will have opportunities to blog about your work, attend conferences, publish papers, and open source large parts of the code you work on at the company.
