Web Engineer

Cogo Labs is the technology-driven incubator behind some of the Boston area’s fastest-growing web companies. Our proprietary technologies for algorithmic marketing, data mining and quantitative business analytics enable us to guide start-ups from inception to profitability and beyond.

Job Description

Cogo Labs is looking for a Web Engineer to join our Web Engineering team. You’ll join a small group within the incubator tasked with designing and building the systems and frameworks forming the foundation for our next generation of Web properties.

We’re looking someone with a thorough knowledge of client-based JavaScript, and at least one server-side language (Node, Python, Go, Rust, etc.). Experience working within single-page apps and/or React Native is a plus.

Above All:

We’re seeking people who are excited about new challenges, enthusiastic about building better ways to confront those challenges, and interested in sharing those tools and processes with others.

As Part of Web Engineering at Cogo You Will:

  • Plan and build a rapid development platform used to quickly test business ideas.
  • Use that platform to build engaging websites and apps that drive user engagement and interaction.
  • Track those interactions through a JavaScript analytics platform that you help maintain.
  • Present analytics data through visualization and query tools that you build.

Required skills

Our tech:

We use an ever-evolving combination of JavaScript (Node, React) and Python (Django, Express), in addition to all the usual bits and pieces that are used by web apps (Postgres, Mongo, Redis, RabbitMQ, Nginx, etc.). Have a favorite tool we’re not using? We’re open to suggestions.

The kind of people who succeed here:

  • Possess strong web fundamentals. We need developers who not only understand how their tools work, but are passionate about constantly improving them.
  • Love business and entrepreneurship. We love meeting people who have, at one point or another, started something, been involved in the early stages of something, or really, really want to start something.
  • Are sociable, outgoing, and fun. Every company has a culture; ours happens to be a little more relaxed than most.
  • Have diverse backgrounds and interests. Among other things we’re musicians, writers, illustrators, economists, and journalists. We’ve found that our teams thrive when they’re comprised of individuals who are not just very good at what they do here, but passionate about the things they do outside of work.
