Sr. Javascript Engineer

| Chicago

About Us:Shiftgig was founded on the simple premise that many people want flexible work opportunities that fit into the rest of their lives, so we build technology that is focused on one thing: connecting people who want temporary work right now with businesses who need them.
We’re fulfilling our mission of connecting millions of people with millions of shifts via our mobile apps and platform. Our apps make it easy for businesses to post gigs and for qualified and skilled workers to claim them. Our platform handles shift fulfillment and handles all the messy bits associated with labor management.
We are a tech company in a non-tech space and as such, we have a lot of interesting problems to solve. Our architecture is centered around internal and external APIs with consuming clients being our single page applications and native mobile apps.
 

About You:You have hands-on experience working in an agile environment. Beyond the required technical ability, we are looking for an individual with a problem-solving attitude, a passion for building awesome stuff and a love of disrupting industries.
You love software development and making neat things to help people in their daily lives and share it with others.

Insider's spotlight

How does your team reward individual success?

Our team works to acknowledge and bring to fruition great ideas so they reach customers. Seeing how an individual’s work impacts a customer’s life for the better is the biggest reward. We also take the time to celebrate big team milestones, with champagne, to appreciate how far we’ve come.

What projects are you most most excited about?

The product and engineering team is working on integrating with AWS which is very exciting. As a junior developer and someone that is new to the field of technology, I’ve had the rare opportunity to gain hands-on experience during this large project. Collaborating and problem solving with my fellow engineers has been a great learning opportunity.

Shiftgig has been wonderful in supporting my career growth. I work with great leaders who invest their time in teaching me new skills and placing me into job functions that align with my strengths. During my time at Shiftgig, I’ve worked in many different departments and each time I feel supported in my knowledge and growth within the company.

Felicia

Customer Success Manager

Each quarter, product and engineering steps away from our traditional sprint cycle and participates in a special innovation sprint. We embrace exploring new ideas that could impact the future of Shiftgig. We hold a pitch session, form teams, and a week later, demo our results. Oftentimes, our prototypes and learnings inform our roadmap.

Rick

Chief Technology Officer

Each day the product team does a daily check-in to catch up on yesterday’s accomplishments, today’s plans, and any blockers in the way of our goals. Our product development process is centered on close communication with internal and external stakeholders which enables us to discover problems and validate and build solutions effectively every day.
