Senior Javascript Developer - ApartmentJet

About ApartmentJet

FOUNDED BY INDUSTRY EXPERTS: ApartmentJet is the newest product from the innovators who conquered the last major multifamily disruption, Craigslist, with the enterprise marketing and analytics tool RentSentinel. They followed up that success with RentSocial, a full-resident-lifecycle collaborative search tool praised at the time by Mashable and other tech sites as the most innovative consumer apartment listing website. Now they’re back to help solve a new problem.

MANAGE SHORT TERM RENTALS: Short term rentals are today’s Wild West for the Multifamily Apartment industry. A shift is happening. It’s hard to see, and it’s difficult to manage, but it’s full of opportunity.

ApartmentJet is an enterprise solution to help you grab the reins and right the saddle. We provide property management companies the portfolio-level visibility, control, revenue opportunity, and power to maintain a sense of community that’s too easily sacrificed in today’s sharing economy.

Our Technology

We are an early stage startup entering a stealthy pilot phase with funding, a prototype, and a handful of close partners (which is why our website doesn’t reveal too many details just yet).

We’re growing our technology team to help us turn our prototype into a production ready enterprise solution. Our goal is to design a simple experience, build lean products, analyze user feedback, iterate effectively, and deliver enormous value to our customers, hopefully with a bit of personality thrown in for good measure. To do that, we’re looking for stellar engineers.

Senior Javascript Developer

We’re looking for a technical lead and a front end expert to help us implement new features, a nimble architecture, and solid processes. This role is 95% coding. As a key leader on our technology team, you’ll be responsible for developing multiple web apps, helping to establish critical Dev Ops processes, and keeping our code lean, clean, and… MEAN would be the perfect rhyme here, but we’re shifting to a relational database which kills the pun. Sorry.

You’re a passionate javascript expert and ambassador. You stay up-to-date on modern frameworks and have a working experience with technologies and concepts like: ES7, Flux, Redux, Webpack, React, Angular 2, Docker, Firebase, AWS or Google Cloud Platform. You’re a tinkerer and like building tools in your free time. You understand and have experience implementing Continuous Integrations and Deployments. You know best practices for authentication and user security. You never forget to write your test scripts. And you enjoy helping others learn.

PREFERENCES (because we hate the word ‘requirements’)

  • Previous experience building modern web apps using frameworks like React, Ember or Angular (we’re currently using Angular 2).
  • Ability to write clean and effective CSS with an eye for design detail.
  • Ability to communicate your ideas effectively and document your decisions.
