We are hiring a developer who knows Ember inside and out in order to replace the founders in their role of managing the Ember code base. You will be making decisions on the architecture, development strategies, and testing strategies of three Ember applications. You must be well versed in Ember Octane, component design, testing, and migrating Ember 2 code to Octane.
What kind of environment will you work in?
We are a bootstrapped company that has been around for 18 years
The team is entirely remote with no central office
We are nice to each other
We are small company that is growing so you have to deal well with change
What code will you be dealing with?
There are three Ember applications. The oldest was originally written in Ember 1 and is now running Ember 3.25. It provides the content and account management interface for customer knowledge bases in the application. Many parts of the app have been updated to Octane, though there is still a large amount of pre-Octane code as well.
The other two Ember applications are small, but one of them runs inside of a Chrome extension. Both are running Ember 3.25 or later.
All of the applications are driven by a Rails backend so knowledge of Rails is a plus, but not a requirement.
