Skookum is a digital product development firm with offices in Charlotte, North Carolina and Denver, Colorado. Since 2005, our team of product, design and technology professionals have worked in partnership with organizations that want to make their customer and employee experiences distinctly more meaningful, efficient – and enjoyable.

Javascript Engineer (Angular) at Skookum

Skookum is seeking a Javascript Engineer with intimate familiarity with the web platform. Our Javascript Engineers are engaged in the full spectrum of product development, working with a team to write great software and build engaging products. Do you have the technical and relational skills to build business-critical applications with a high-performing, cross-functional team?

About The Team

We generally operate with small teams working closely together on a wide variety of projects that range from an apparel design studio in the browser, to offline-enabled mobile web applications. We have products in production today built with a range of platforms. We are not religious about our technology, but choose the best for the problem.

Our web stack today primarily includes; Angular, React, Backbone, Ruby on Rails, node.js, and .NET; though we have C and Go in production as well.

About You

You are a human first, a developer second. You are willing and able to partake in and lead communication with project stakeholders. You should be able to explain technical constraints to both technical and non-technical audiences.

You want the web to compete with native platforms on every level; from building compelling experiences to maintenance, usability, and distribution. Regardless of what browser you use for daily use, you strongly believe that testing, supporting, and encouraging use of all browsers is core to the current and future success of the web.

You will succeed in this role if you:

  • 3+ years of experience working on large development projects
  • Get equally excited about great UI and API design
  • Can articulate the difference between progressive enhancement and graceful degradation
  • Could have a conversation about the importance of animation in an interface
  • Know what V8, SpiderMonkey, JSCore, and Chakra are
  • Are familiar with npm, Webpack and Babel
  • Work well with others
  • Love the journey as much as the destination
  • Stay current with the evolving HTML5 specification

We have offices in beautiful Charlotte, NC and Denver, CO. We believe in work/life balance and downright frown upon overworking yourself. We offer competitive perks including continuing education opportunities, in-building gym and bike storage, team lunches every Friday, small, dynamic teams, and an open PTO policy.

We never do the same thing twice. We build business critical applications with the mindset of the lean startup and consumer product world. We tackle problems we don’t always know how to solve. Every day, every project is a new challenge to conquer. You will have the opportunity to push yourself and grow.
