\nSenior Full Stack Developer\n\nIf you know Python, Perl, or Tcl you've probably heard of ActiveState's language distros. Now we’re building an ambitious language distribution platform and set of tools so that coders can focus on coding and spend less time worrying about dependency hell, third party vulnerabilities, and inconsistent developer environments.  We’re doing this for every language and platform on the planet (and beyond). We need your help to do it! Best of all you’ll be working on a product that you’ll use yourself daily.\n\nThis position is open to full-time telecommuters anywhere in North America. You can also choose to work from our headquarters in beautiful Vancouver, BC.\n\n\n\nWHAT YOU’LL BE DOING\n\nAt ActiveState we are building a highly scalable, 100% automated build system for multiple languages across multiple platforms. We’re also creating microservice APIs for other teams to code against as we build our big new thing.\n\nYour job will entail making a wide variety of enhancements and developing features that require a mixture of front-end and back-end knowledge. Examples include taking the pain out of administering a SaaS platform, helping us integrate with 3rd party services or optimizing our site to be indexable by search engines.\n\nThe work includes creating new back-end services, perfecting user interface, designing internal data structures and coding micro-services that expose the data and relations. You will help integration efforts with various internal and external services used by Finance, Sales, Marketing, and Product Management to make sure the teams can perform their duties optimally. While a primary amount of your job will be described as back-end work you must be comfortable messing around with the front-end as well.\n\nWhen not working on code, you’ll be meeting with your team to figure out priorities, features, technical issues, etc. You’re someone with good technical knowledge who also has an interest in the end-product you’ll be building.\n\n\nOur day to day work practices are centered around GitHub, pull requests, code review, CI for testing, and agile development with Pivotal Tracker as our project management tool. We’re always looking to improve our practices and we expect you to help us to do so.\n\n\n\nWe’re a polyglot company and embrace using the best language for the given task at hand. You’ll regularly find Golang, Elm, Javascript, Python, Docker, Kubernetes, DCOS, CircleCI, and other modern tools. Quality is as important as speed. We’re building for the long run, so you’ll need to be proficient in writing tests and documentation too.\n\n\n\nOur back ends and command line tools for interacting with our Platform are written in Go. Experience with Go is a big plus. The front end is written in Elm. Knowledge of Elm, while preferred, is not a prerequisite. We’ve found engineers with experience in React/Redux take to the language quite naturally. \n\n\nThe team is scattered around the US and Canada, so we coordinate with each other and the rest of the company using Slack for chat, Highfive for video calls and screen sharing, Pivotal Tracker, and the Google Suite.\n\nWe like to use open source software whenever possible, and we also like to contribute back to the open source ecosystem. We embrace open sourcing both libraries and tools developed in-house as long as those are not mission-critical code.\n\n\n\n\nWHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU\n\n\n* Working for a stable and growing company that offers the environment and personal growth potential of a start-up.\n\n* The chance to work with a smart, passionate team of people.\n\n* The chance to work on a project that will change the work lives of developers around the world, including your own!\n\n* Competitive salary, bonus, and stock option plan.\n\n* Comprehensive benefits package and health/wellness credit program.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nREQUIREMENTS\n\n\n* Experience with Go and Elm\n\n* The ability to quickly pick up new languages and technologies\n\n* Experience with relational database (mysql, postgres, ..).\n\n* Adequate knowledge of JavaScript and front end development.\n\n* Experience with at least one major platform (Linux, macOS, Windows) and exposure to the others.\n\n* The ability to write clean, well-tested code with clear documentation.\n\n* Excellent written and spoken skills, both technical and non-technical..\n\n* A willingness to engage in the process of defining our work through conversations with product management, other engineering teams, and the rest of the company.\n\n* The ability to help others on the team become better at their jobs through mentoring, thoughtful code reviews, and generally being a team player.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nASSETS\n\nIf you have experience with any of the following please make sure to highlight it in your cover letter:\n\n\n* Experience working on billing solutions\n\n* Agile processes, including breaking large projects up into smaller stories, estimation, working in branches (GitHub Flow), code review, and CI.\n\n* Javascript tooling such as Webpack and frameworks such as React and Redux.\n\n* Elm code, especially large Single Page Apps.\n\n* Microservices and message queues.\n\n* Good working knowledge of Docker.\n\n* Experience building both web based and desktop based software.\n\n* Docker, Mesos, DCOS, Kubernetes.\n\n* Functional programming languages.\n\n* Experience with creating parsers, compilers or code intelligence systems\n\n* Experience with Process management on Windows or Unix environments\n\n* Work with reactive, event based systems\n\n\n\n\nWorking At ActiveState\n\nActiveState has a collaborative, respectful, and professional culture. We’re all about working together to find the best solutions, and making sure that the experience of doing so is positive for everyone involved. There is a commitment from the CEO on down to making work at ActiveState a great experience for all.\n\nOur company is a team of 40+ and growing, with 2/3rds of the positions in technical roles. We maintain a set of core, overlapping hours, but we’re flexible with specific start and end times and are understanding about appointments and life events.\n\nOur vision is to have an ActiveState solution on every device on every planet, so we certainly don’t lack for ambition! But even though we’re ambitious we don’t expect work to become your life. We know you will do your best work in a positive environment free from death marches.
