We work on Connect-X, a productivity platform with integrated Employee Engagement, Performance, and Work Management capabilities. The platform captures information related to employees (organizational information, skills, aspirations, performance reviews, time off); work (project, teams, status updates, objectives, time track ing) and also includes a variety of employee engagement related features including Praise (shoutouts), Videos, organizational updates, and embedded content from 3rd party microsites. Our mission is simple: simplify the way that work is done so that people can focus on higher value add activities.
We are looking for a Senior Full-stack Web Programmer to help our development team to:
•evolve the existing product and quickly iterate new ideas
•improve the foundations upon which our product is built, making the development environment leaner, more productive, and less error-prone
•challenge the status quo (decisions that were right years ago when they were taken, might not be good enough anymore, today)
The position requires a strong problem solving mind set, pragmatism, and passion for new technologies. Our team is scattered across 4 different timezones (Indonesia, India, Italy, and East America) and it’s important that you can clearly articulate your thoughts, as well as sell your ideas or suggestions to others, in both oral and written form. Also, due to the distributed nature of our team, sometimes you might be asked to join/leave office a bit earlier/later than usual; don’t worry, that ’s not going to be the norm, and when that happens, we will make it up to you.
This is our tech stack; experience with our development environment is required. Familiarity with any of the data services that we use, or with our Continuous Deployment toolset is a plus.

•Experience with CSS, SCSS (bonus: Block-Element-Modifier methodology)
