Job description

The Role

GovExec is seeking a Full Stack Software Developer to help build our GovTribe product. The ideal candidate will have professional software development experience, as well as exceptional coding skills in JavaScript and PHP, and a track record of applying these technologies to solve a wide range of problems.

In this role, you will have experience working with Vue in concert with a back-end RESTful API server like Laravel. You will also have extensive experience with supporting technologies like MongoDB and Elasticsearch. A typical development sprint at GovExec involves reviewing feature requests and bug reports, consolidating each into detailed requirement definitions, writing code, and writing tests. You will work with other developers and project managers to help move this process forward.


  • Working with the GovTribe Product Manager, Customer Success Managers (CSMs) and GovTribe leadership to define and prioritize work for the upcoming sprint.
  • Working directly with the Product Manager to convert feature requests into detailed requirement definitions.
  • During the sprint, writing code in feature branches, iteratively pushing commits as you make progress, and reviewing work with other team members.
  • Creating test coverage that will run via our continuous integration system.
  • Monitoring page load times, initial bundle sizes, and optimizing your features for SEO, mobile performance, and accessibility.
  • Deploying new releases of GovTribe.
  • At the end of the sprint, reviewing your progress with other members of the team.
  • Once code is in production, monitor our bug tracking system to check for errors.
  • Can travel domestically, at least quarterly.

As a valued member of the software development team, we want you to constantly bring new ideas and technologies into the process. Would you like to use a new charting library? Push messaging platform? Event-loop based cat feeder? Bring it!


  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or a related field, or relevant work experience.
  • Exceptional coding skills in JavaScript and PHP.
  • 3+ years of full time, software development experience, that includes:
  1. 2+ years experience working on full stack web applications.
  2. 1+ year experience with Vue.js.
  3. 1+ year experience with Laravel.
  • Working knowledge of MongoDB.
  • Working knowledge of Elasticsearch.
  • Ability to communicate and form effective working relationships with non-technical product experts, such as business leaders or product managers
