Quartzy, Quartzy HQ

The free and easy way to manage your lab inventory


Quartzy is seeking an extraordinary front-end engineer who will join our tight-knit team to build clean, modern applications from scratch. We recently completed a redesign/re-architecture of our entire application in Ember.js, and we’re gearing up for a phase of rapid growth and product development.

You are a self-starter with a bias for action, and you can take projects from start to finish. You want to work as part of a small, tightly-knit team that moves quickly and pushes changes to production many times a day. You always admired your friends in science, but your knack for computers led you to programming.

Our team is passionate about accelerating scientific research through well-designed, meaningful tools for labs and companies alike. We value openness, transparency, and good communication, because, after all, we are in this together. 

What you’ll do

  • Work closely with our product team to spec and implement features
  • Implement new interfaces and functionality from the ground up
  • Guide the development of our front-end architecture using modern development practices
  • Participate in code reviews and pair programming
  • Write clean, well-tested ES6 code that’s easy to read and resilient to heavy iteration

What we’re looking for

  • Demonstrable experience writing clean, production-ready Javascript, HTML and SCSS
  • Experience with modern Javascript frameworks, especially Ember.js
  • An entrepreneurial attitude that gets high-quality projects done quickly
  • The ability to work efficiently and communicate clearly

What we’d love

  • Experience with other parts of our technology stack: PHP, MySQL
  • Familiarity with test frameworks such as QUnit and Cucumber.js
  • A desire to master your text editor/IDE of choice

Does that sound like you? We'd love to hear from you.
