Our startup works with the fastest growing companies in the world, and we're actively hiring two principal full stack JavaScript engineers to join our founding engineering team. We value simplicity in both our code and our user interfaces. We don’t believe in large teams; we opt for small, nimble engineering experts that work well together, iterate quickly, and achieve more as a team.

We are a two-sided marketplace looking to bring more developers on board to speed up our product launch. We are looking for a front-end web developer who is motivated to combine the art of design with the art of programming. Responsibilities will include translation of UI/UX design wireframes to code, building the visual elements of the application. Following that, your role will be to make pages interactive, as well as to connect to our back-end and pull in data as needed.

Google Maps API Developer
JavaScript, Google Maps

We are looking for an experienced JavaScript developer to build a map based on the Google Maps API, that will also integrate with our API. This map should be able to pull in a list of locations and expand the details of a particular point of interest in an interactive fashion. We will provide all designs, as well as the API. This map will be used in our core web app, which enables users to view and analyze vehicle traffic patterns in real-time.
