About the Role

We are looking for an experienced frontend developer who can take the reigns on implementing a slew of new features for BrickFTP (soon to be Files.com), our internal CRM, and other products. We currently use React 16, and you will have input into the tooling used by you and the company. As with most roles at Action Verb, you are expected to be a self-starter who can operate with minimal oversight.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • At least 5 years of applicable experience.
  • Experience building and delivering React.js applications that have seen actual production usage
  • Strong understanding of the Javascript language itself
  • Understanding of how to write secure frontend code and an awareness of common web application security vulnerabilities
  • Testing and the ability to write unit tests/specs (we use popular JavaScript testing frameworks)

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Contributions to major open source projects
  • Familiar with changes in ES8, ES6, as well as recent updates to CSS
  • Comfort diving deep into javascript to solve an issue
  • SaaS experience

Our Core Beliefs

Here are just some of our Core Beliefs:

We believe that the best Engineers tend to be polyglots with a wide variety of programming language experience. We don’t hire for specific programming language skills, but rather look for engineers who are fluent in several programming languages. We want our staff to be adaptable and ready to evolve to what’s next.

We believe in using the right tool for the job. Our core applications are built in Ruby, JavaScript, Java, C++, and PHP. We use Rails, React, Chef, Qt, Jenkins, Github, Honeybadger, CircleCI, Maven, AWS, MySQL, Redis, Memcached, Haml, Sass, and many other exciting open source systems. We don’t want to get stuck in the trap of using a language or a tool just because “that’s how it’s done around here.”

We believe that open-source only works if companies give back. If you work on any open-source projects during the course of your work at Action Verb, you are encouraged to submit your improvements as a pull request back to the upstream project. And if you build something from scratch while working here that’s generic and not related to our core products, we want you to release that on GitHub too. We’ll also pay your travel costs to any conference where you can get a speaking gig.

We believe in building products that we actually use ourselves. We are our own toughest critics and we put all of our products through their paces every day.

About Action Verb

We build two Infrastructure-as-a-Service Platforms that empower organizations worldwide: BrickFTP, a hosted file sharing service for business, and Vae Platform, a collection of offerings in the hosting and eCommerce space.

Our company consists of 14 (and growing to 35 by the end of 2019) full time USA-based remote employees.

Our products and services are used by over 2,000 enterprises and SMBs, including Target, Canonical, UPS, Leica, DirecTV, GoPro, Marriott, and more.

We’re Bootstrapped, Profitable, and Growing

Our success comes from building great products and services that are loved by our customers, and our growth comes from expanding and improving our products as quickly as we can.

We believe that great products can only be built by great people. So we’re on a quest to find the smartest, most creative, and most motivated technical people, and create an environment in which they thrive.

You Will Have Authority, Accountability, and Autonomy

At Action Verb, we follow a unique approach to management and company structure that draws inspiration from systems such as Holacracy and the unique approaches taken by Value and Google.

Our employees don’t have a single job description. Instead, you will fill many specific, focused roles that have very clear authority and accountabilities.

Some roles are big and some roles are small, but every role has a defined area of authority belonging exclusively to that role.

You will know your authority and accountabilities, and take action.

Roles are created, changed, and removed as our business grows, and the roles you fill as an employee will evolve over time.

“Most startups believe in iteration of their products. Now they need to apply the same thinking to their organizations.”

– Adam Pisoni, Yammer co-founder & CTO

More about our Open-Source Approach To Management

We Are A Remote Company

You will work from home and have some flexibility to choose your working hours, allowing you to make time for family, recreation, vacations, or anything that is important to you.

Every quarter, you’ll travel to an in-person meeting with the entire team to meet and work together face to face. These meetings are in cities that are fun to visit. In the last few years, we’ve been to Austin, Orlando, New Orleans, San Diego, Las Vegas, and New York City.

Results-Based Hiring

When we need to fill a role, we look for people with a track record of success filling a similar role.

We do not hire interns, junior staff, or anyone with less than 3 years of experience directly related to the role. As a result, you will relate to everyone here as a peer.

We fully pay base plan health insurance premiums (exact plan details depend on your state of residence), and we’ll pick up the tab for 75% of your spouse or dependents if they wish to join your chosen plan. We want your family to be healthy.

Plus, you can join Action Verb Risk Free because of our $7,500 Quitting Bonus Within Your First 90 Days.

If you don’t like working at Action Verb for any reason, quit within the first 90 days and receive a $7,500 quitting bonus.
