Job Description

Software Engineer—pretty straightforward, don’t you think?

Not exactly. Firespring looks for something different in the engineers we hire. In addition to producing some stellar code, our engineers work in a highly proactive environment. Our average day is spent coding, problem solving, strategically thinking, and exceeding the expectations of our clients. In our opinion, that’s the perfect workplace.

  • Do you take the initiative to work independently yet work well with a team? Let's talk.
  • We value innovative web programming and interactive development. If you have the skills, be ready to prove it.
  • Do you enjoy programming in languages like PHP and MySQL? Familiarity with version control systems like Git will also help you fit in.
  • Is your thinking driven by patterns similar to MVC and Three Tiered Architecture?
  • Object orientation and object inheritance models are like second nature to you.
  • Do you pretty up the world around you with languages like CSS, HTML(5) and Javascript?
  • You're cozy with various coding frameworks such as Laravel and Symfony.
  • In the fight against perfection paralysis, you give your absolute best to meet deadlines, yet you’re still willing to release your project into the wild when the time comes.
  • You’re not a fool. You know constant learning is the key to staying on top, and you’re not afraid to learn a few new things.

  • FunMillions of people go to work, punch the clock from 8 to 5 and hate every moment of it—that’s not the case here. We have an indoor slide, a game room that includes shuffleboard, a pool table, a foosball table, a ping pong table and more. To put it mildly, we’re serious about having fun.
  • Miscellaneous BenefitsNot all benefits are about the Benjamins, baby. Some of the things you’ll enjoy while working here include unlimited soda, tea, lemonade, and beer. And don’t worry about your duds—business-casual is the dress code here. Still looking to make your cubicle-shackled friends jealous of your new gig?
