    Headquarters: Remote

    URL: http://www.whitespectre.com/

    Whitespectreis a product-centric,  technology consultancy for both VC funded start-ups and large, established companies across the US and Europe. We’re also a product incubator with our own applications and B2B SaaS platform. As long-term partners to our clients, we’ve played a critical role in their growth- both through the products we co-create and the expertise and processes we bring. Proudly remote first since 2013, we’re a close-knit team of 75, working in fast-moving, cross-functional agile pods to solve interesting technical challenges and drive real business impact.

    What’s it like to be a Javascript Engineer at Whitespectre?

    All our engineers are sharp technical experts with the ability to think like product owners- being able to advocate for code quality as a long term strategic investment while knowing when to adapt a more start-up mentality to deliver rapid business value. They drive architecture and implementation decisions, mentor other engineers, and stay up to date with the latest Javascript techniques and trends as part of the collective Whitespectre Javascript brain trust. 
    Whitespectre operates on a fully-modern tech stack- toolset includes Node.js/Next.js/Express, React, Typescript, REST/GraphQL, etc. Working smartly is important to us; automation, dynamic environments spin up with new feature branches and slack bot integrations control our production releases (CI/CD, AWS, Github workflows).
    We follow an agile 2-week sprint methodology with Product, UI/UX and Engineering within the team to align closely with business stakeholders and incrementally build and release new functionality.
    The majority of our projects involve building greenfield applications and our delivery teams typically own products end to end – your thinking and contribution make a big impact!
