Job description

aware3 is seeking a JavaScript Software Engineer to join our team.

At aware3, we believe in the power of community-minded organizations. We help those organizations grow their impact by making it easy to engage anytime, anywhere.

We help churches (under our aware3 & CFT brands), schools (under our FACTS brand), & nonprofits engage and grow their communities through text, web, & branded apps.

If you love a friendly & supportive team, we’re your team. Our company values are Togetherness, Grit & Passion, Integrity, Transformation, Vulnerability. You can read more about our values over on the company About Us page (https://aware3.com/careers). aware3 strives for a balanced Agile methodology. If you're interested in our perspectives on all this, here's our Tapas Teamwork blog post (https://a3a.me/cWbXT). As a team, we expect ourselves to write readable and testable code. We don’t value writing code in the fewest number of lines; we value when another team member can easily hop in and understand your code and it has automation tests covering it. PR’s and occasional pair programming are opportunities to learn from each other.

  • QA: Codeception, PHPunit, Chromedriver.
  • Misc: Twilio, Sendgrid, Firebase, and more. We embrace new tech and best practices frequently.

Comp & Benefits

We believe that diversity contributes to a broader collective perspective that will lead to a better company and better products. We seek to continue our diversity journey and we actively encourage everyone (yes, you!) to consider becoming a part of the team. Our 29 person engineering team is presently: 38% women, 31% POC, 14% LGBT+, and 38% neurodiverse. 79% of our team falls into at least one of these categories. We want to be a place everyone can belong and thrive.

Our growing, dedicated team works both remotely, and (where there's not a pandemic happening) in an open environment in-office. This full time position is available for both remote candidates and those in cities where we have a hub (Kansas City, Denver, Providence). Remote candidates need to be located +/- 2hrs to America/Chicago time zone, and eligible to work in the US. We have a casual work environment with a collaborative and supportive team dynamic.

No recruiters, staffing firms, or contractors, please.
