  • Overview

    At Planview LeanKit, we deliver a product that helps our customers make work visible and transparent,
    enables collaboration, and provides the data needed to make smarter decisions. We visualize
    our own work, and enjoy sharing how and why we do it. We are constantly learning and seeking
    to continuously improve our products, our company, and ourselves. We work to teach our
    potential market the value of visual management, how it applies to their industries and functions,
    and to center our efforts around enterprise customers. In short - we transform how people do
    their work, and have experienced that transformation ourselves as we’ve built our product.


    We are looking for a Junior Software Developer to work with our web applications team to build
    API & other back-end services. We have a solid group of top notch problem solvers, and we'd
    like you to join us in having a substantial impact on our product. We are serious about
    collaborating, we encourage innovation both in the product as well as how we build it, and we
    are committed to writing well-tested software and to the growth of our team through pairing and
    code reviews. As a Junior Developer on our team, you will be surrounded with an ideal group of
    mentors who will help you grow quickly. While we're based in Austin, TX, we are open to both
    local and remote (within the US) candidates!

      data access.

    • Work with both frontend and backend teams to determine solutions & break down work
      from high level requirements into actionable tasks.

    Qualifications

    • Excellent written and oral communication skills
    • Ability to work remote effectively with availability to travel onsite 2-4 times per year
    • 2+ years experience with node.js preferred - or a mix of node.js and experience with
      other platforms (Ruby, Java, C#/.NET)
    • BS degree in computer science or equivalent experience
    • Demonstrate the ability to quickly learn new concepts and technologies
    • Proficiency with JavaScript
    • Understanding of version control principles (preferably Git)
    • Basic understanding of HTTP
    • Experience with any web/api frameworks (express.js, Rails, etc.)

    Nice-to-haves:

    • Experience with non-relational storage engines (redis, etc.)
    • Experience with micro services/service oriented architecture

    Great Benefits and Fun Perks

    • No one likes working in a box, right? That’s why we’ve built some fun, open work environments with optional standing desks, game rooms, unlimited snacks, soft drinks, and gourmet coffee machines. Oh, and a tasty cereal bar and fresh fruit to get your day going!
    • We believe in regular fun office events and monthly happy hours!
    • We offer weekly onsite yoga classes, chiropractor visits and car wash services.
    • We’re in a brand new office building with garage parking and shaded courtyards with outdoor gas grills and seating, just in case you want to grab some sun during lunch.
    • We host daily food trucks!
    • And because we believe in community involvement, we’re also active participants of a variety of causes, including a Planview MS150 riding team, Heartwalk, Central Texas Food Bank, Salvation Army Angel Tree and more!
