If you love JavaScript and live in San Francisco (or would like to), then this job is for you. We build cutting-edge software to make the world a better place — at a rate of 2 billion requests a month. Performance and code quality matter.

JavaScript is a major part of Zendesk product development. We recently rebuilt our primary user interface from the ground up to be more responsive and make our users more productive. It's a single-page application built with Ember.js and is one of the largest Ember projects in existence. A growing number of our backend services, including real-time notifications, are powered by Node.js.

Zendesk engineers enjoy working with other smart people who care about the product and the code. We emphasize pragmatism over dogmatism. Our team uses best practices at every stage of the development cycle: test-driven development, peer code review, and rapid deployment. As part of our team, you’ll own software throughout the entire development life-cycle.

Requirements:
  • Deep knowledge of modern JavaScript techniques and web development, including experience with at least one JavaScript framework (e.g. Ember, Backbone), writing JavaScript libraries, and with server-side development (e.g. Rails, Django)
  • A passion for great design and usability
  • Great communication skills and an ability to work well with others
Pluses:
  • Experience working in rich client applications, particularly in JavaScript or Objective-C
