We're building a new, world-class team in the Boston area to create a powerful new web platform. We need exceptional developers who can squeeze every last bit of power and performance out of modern web browsers. Innovative thinking and a passion for technology are critical components because this is a ground-floor opportunity with seasoned, successful entrepreneurs. This is a true start-up funded by a stable, mature company that produces products that make a difference in people’s lives every day.
We need you to help us invent, develop and deliver an innovative and reliable web platform emphasizing innovation and reliability. You’ll work with our architect and VP of Engineering on the front-end product’s architecture and design. This isn’t a position that’s task-oriented, we need creative thinkers on our team who aren’t afraid to try new things that deliver exponential instead of incremental results.
What’s important to us is that you are a passionate technologist with a cooperative personality that can work alongside a team that thrives on innovation and creativity. We’re a group of basketball and tennis players, skiers and history buffs, and even a Boston Pops tenor.
Bring us your expertise where you can leave a mark on a great product, work for a great company that offers excellent benefits like 100% paid family medical insurance and flexible schedules, all while having fun at the same time with a great team.

Demonstrable experience engineering complex web applications
5+ years professional coding experience
Undergraduate degree in technical field or comparable work experience

Web development for high transaction web sites
Deep understanding of the similarities and differences between modern browsers including IE 8+, Safari, Chrome, and Firefox on Windows and OS X
