Front End Developer

0 people like this description

Our client, a start up in the pharma space, is looking for a mid to senior level front end developer! This role is temp to perm (3 months temp before converting). The team works off-site for now (but meets once a week in Boston) - they're in the process of researching office spaces in Cambridge, Waltham, or Burlington.

They are focused on clinical research and developing a platform to improve study protocol design and streamline study recruitment activities. They are early stage but well positioned to make an impact. They have secured funding of over $10 million. They are backed by one large Pharma company and the rest comes from their Venture partners.

They are trying to build out their engineering dev team and are looking for a good javascript / web developer. This person would work with the head front end developer and the other two backend developers we currently have. Right now they are wrapping up the Alpha release of their application. It's a single page app written in jQuery and Backbone so they're really looking for someone who has production experience with both. They have a continuous integration build system using git / travis and deploying to AWS where everything is hosted.

Requirements:
- 3 to 5 years of JavaScript development using Backbone (ideal) but any framework experience is fine
