Front-end Engineer - ZenHub

Vancouver, United States

Building the next generation of collaboration

To build amazing software, you need to be where the software lives. That’s the philosophy behind ZenHub, the only project management tool that transforms GitHub into a collaboration suite.

We’re working to reinvent the way development teams collaborate. Our customers are smart cookies: the best teams at NASA, Docker, Rackspace, and VMware rely on ZenHub to ship amazing stuff. Now we’re looking for a startup-minded front-end engineer to join us in beautiful Vancouver, BC.

You’ll help us expand our best-in-class developer solution. Working closely with design, engineering, and product, you’ll conceptualize and ship features that help our customers do the best work of their lives.

Our best practices-drive engineering team is committed to continuous deployment and automated testing. Our stack includes Node, Express, and MongoDB, plus Backbone, React, and Redux, among others. If selected, you’ll join a highly international team of founders, published authors, and hackers who hail from companies like IBM, App Annie, and Baidu.


About you

  • Experience with – and love of – web-based SaaS products
  • Expert knowledge of UX and UI design principles
  • Strong domain knowledge of JavaScript concepts
  • Proven, deep understanding of HTML5 / CSS.


Bonus points

  • Demonstrated experience using React and/or Redux
  • You’re a ZenHub evangelist already <3
  • Expertise in Node and/or MongoDB
  • Passion for agile software development


Go ahead – apply already!

Please include your GitHub profile, portfolio, website, and/or a code sample.

Also, this isn’t mandatory, but we’re curious: what’s the coolest thing you’ve worked on lately? (Max 150 words.) Please include a link if you can.


Salary and Benefits:

Competitive salary ($60K-110K) plus bonus, top-tier benefits, and generous stock / equity

A few highlights:

  • Premium Insurance. Axiom Zen provides full health, life and AD&D insurance as well as premium vision, dental, and extended health benefits.
  • Active Professional Development. We actively participate in the development of our team. You have access to a Professional Development budget allocated separate from your compensation to be spent on conferences, classes, books, and any other resources to maintain and expand your skill set, industry knowledge, and professional growth. Or take someone interesting to coffee for in-person learning.
  • Speaker Travel Budget. We believe strongly that all our team members should have the opportunity to become thought leaders in their fields. To support this, we have a standard policy to cover travel + accommodations for speaking engagements anywhere in the Americas, and are very willing to support speaking engagements elsewhere around the world as well.
  • Mandatory 15 Off Days Per Year. We have a high standard for impact but we insist on work-life harmony and believe in balance. Minimum of 15 off days every year, with no hard limit.
  • Transport Reimbursement. We cover public transport to work and back. If you bike to work instead, we set aside $1000/year for bike maintenance. If you walk to work, we’ll bonus you the same amount as a rental subsidy.
