JavaScript Developer at Jobbatical

Taipei City, Taiwan, Province of China

Posted on Apr 13 2017 (about 2 years ago)

At Vectr, we know design connects people—we’ve experienced it firsthand—and we believe everyone should experience the almost indescribable feeling that comes from expressing your creative freedom through art and design. This belief drives everything we do. We're a fast-growing company. Twice featured by Apple in 2017 already, we're backed by some of Silicon Valley's best VC's. We have a unique company culture. Our work style has evolved into a unique hybrid of remote work and in-person collaboration. For the most part, we work remotely and make our own hours, but each Tuesday afternoon we gather in one of Taipei's many cafes. We'll also have ad hoc smaller meetings in cafes around the city during the week, if we need to get face-to-face. We’re an English-speaking team.

Are you the JavaScript Developer we're looking for?

We’re looking for senior JavaScript generalists. You’ll be working alongside the best—our team’s ex-LearnBoost, ex-Mozilla, and ex-Ubuntu senior developers. We’ve built almost everything from scratch, so we’re looking for the type of person that gets excited by hard problems. As you can imagine, building a vector graphics editor in JavaScript can be tough. If you're up for the challenge, join us in Taipei! Globally, Taiwan is the #1 ranked place to live abroad by expats. Taiwan is one of the friendliest and safest countries in the world. Taipei is home to the tastiest eats, the most convenient metro system, and the coolest cafes. The hustle and bustle of Taipei makes it easy to forget you’re on a tropical island, but breathtaking nature is a quick metro ride away. Our team not only has a significantly higher relative standard of living than their counterparts in the Bay Area, but they also have more disposable income. If, for example, an SF engineer put $2.5K USD into their bank account every month, after paying rent and basic expenses, our team would put $3.5K USD into their bank account after paying the same basic expenses (this isn't a real example, but it illustrates the point). When applying, please include a link to your GitHub (or somewhere else we can see your code) along with a note about why you're interested.

What we'd like to see in the candidate:

  • You are an experienced JavaScript generalist.
  • An affinity for high-performance code is a must.
  • Experience with graphics programming and SVG is a plus.

Compensation and perks

  • We're among the highest-paying companies in Taiwan.
  • We’ll get you a work permit and visas.
