Company description

Since our start in 2015, we’ve gone from a group of individuals to a community pushing toward the same goal of building a fantastic company with great people, great products and, most importantly, a great culture. To date, we have grown to more than 140 team members working with more than 1,000 clients across 49 states.

We believe our culture of Thoughtfulness and High Performance is the most important thing we have to get right at this stage in our journey. If we get the right people working together in productive ways, we can do anything.

Job description

Apptegy occupies a special place in the education market. While most edtech companies focus on helping teachers teach and students learn, our products empower school leaders to run better schools. This makes the scale of our impact huge.


About the role

Apptegy is adding multiple senior front end developers to our growing engineering team based in Little Rock, Arkansas. We take design and user experience seriously. We are proud of the fact that our users (superintendents and school leaders) love our platforms and come from a wide range of backgrounds and technical experience. Front end development is "front-and-center" in our minds and plays a pivotal role in our new products and is critical to improving and building onto our existing products like Thrillshare and Crowdshift.

This is an opportunity for a seasoned front end engineer to work with a highly motivated team that is building technology to revolutionize how schools communicate with their students and communities.

About you

You understand that no one is perfect, that we all have weak spots, and you want to master the skill of self-improvement.

You are driven to do amazing work and complete every task to the best of your ability.

You constantly push yourself to get more done in less time by attacking your work with intensity.

You ask for help when you need it, own up to your mistakes, and put the needs of your colleagues above your own ego.

Things you might do:

  • Working closely with the dev team to build new product interfaces and improve existing ones.
  • Deliver clean and reusable Vue.js front-end components.
  • Have a strong say in design reviews and project estimates.
  • Connecting to back end APIs and presenting data cleanly and beautifully.
  • Mentor and support our more junior front-end developers and help them learn.
  • Be a strong advocate for front-end in the company, pushing for best practices and high standards.

Requirements:

  • 4+ years developing front-end components using a modern front-end framework (ideally Vue.js or React).
  • Must be a strong Javascript developer and have some demonstrable experience of TypeScript.
  • Proficient in styling technologies (ideally SASS).
  • Has one or more complex web applications currently in production.
  • Top communication skills for both a technical and non-technical audience.

Desired Qualifications:

  • Experience in automated testing a plus (e.g. Selenium or Cypress)
  • Some general Amazon Web Services and DevOps experience.
  • Awareness of Accessibility issues and related compliance.
