Job Description

Kick-ass Software Engineer—pretty straight forward, don’t you think?

But 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.

Qualifications

  • Collaboration is huge. If you're a team player, let’s talk.
  • We value innovative web programming and interactive development. If you have the skills, be ready to prove it.
  • Do you have a borderline unhealthy knowledge of PHP and MySQL? If so, that's a good thing. Familiarity with Git will also help you fit in.
  • Your thinking is driven by MVC and Three Tiered Architecture software organization styles.
  • Object orientation and object inheritance models are like second nature to you.
  • You yearn to use CSS, HTML(5) and Javascript to pretty up the world around you.
  • You're cozy with various coding frameworks such as Laravel and Symfony.
  • You’re on a quest to eradicate SQL injection, XSS and XSRF exploits from the face of the planet.
  • In the fight against perfection paralysis, you give your absolute best to meet deadlines, yet you’re still willing 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.

Compensation and Benefits

  • SalaryYou don’t need to go to the grocery store to bring home the bacon. We reward candidates who wow us by offering competitive pay.
  • VacationPaid holidays are a no brainer, but how does unlimited, paid vacation sound? Too good to be true? It’s not. Salaried employees of Firespring are encouraged to take what they need when it comes to vacation and sick time.
  • 401(k)Your parents preached about the importance of saving. Now we’re helping you get it done. Firespring provides professional financial advisors who will help you make a plan and guide your investments.
  • 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? Our company-wide social and recreational activities are sure to do just that.
