Front End Developer

Boston, MA - Posted on: Tuesday 05/24/16


HourlyNerd is a marketplace that connects businesses to MBA alumni and students for short-term business consulting. We're disrupting the 100-year old consulting industry and going after two massive markets -- SMBs and major enterprises. There are 28 million SMBs in the US alone, and all have the same problem -- they can't afford expensive consulting firms and don't know how to find high-quality freelance help. We're providing them access to the same people who work at McKinsey at a small fraction of the price. Major enterprises, including GE, Omaha Steaks, Au Bon Pain, CDW, and American Apparel, are already using HourlyNerd. The consulting industry in the US is over $17 billion, and these companies know that McKinsey, Bain and BCG are overcharging. HourlyNerd is the first service that provides them a fairly priced alternative.

Our investors include Highland Capital and Greylock partners, two of the top Venture Capital firms out there, as well as famed investor Mark Cuban. We're on a mission to build the absolute best team on the east coast, and are looking for talented, scrappy, fun, and competitive folks to get on board.

Front-end Developers are expected to be highly skilled in making the website properties feel natural (not overdesigned or forced).  This means writing clean maintainable code that takes into account browser compatibility so that every interaction "just works" no matter if it is IE (10+) on Windows or Chrome on OS X.  The right individual will be working with a small team of highly skilled individuals to build the platform that will be changing the face of consulting.

Responsibilities will include:

Partner with other developers and product management to build new features
Build reusable components
Leverage cutting edge web technologies to build a best in class experience
Learn and use new technologies
Develop and maintain automated tests


1 to 4 years of experience in front end development
B.S. or M.S. in Computer Science or Engineering (or equivalent)
Deep skills in HTML, CSS, Javascript and AJAX
A passion for coding

Huge bonus points if you:

Have experience with AngularJS
Can provide us with any samples of your work
