Job Description

Salsa Labs needs you.  Are you a tested and battle-hardened web developer that takes pride in your workflow and user experience designs?  If so, then we’re interested in talking with you.  Salsa Labs is seeking Software Engineers to work with our Senior Engineers and Product Managers to develop new functionality for our online SaaS and PaaS organizing tools, including donation, email, advocacy, and other features on both public and internal systems.
Salsa Labs follows agile development practices, and our engineers work directly with our client services and sales teams, as well as our vast array of clients, to develop requirements and plan releases.  Our engineers are expected to have exceptional problem solving skills, the ability to prioritize competing demands independently, and to produce quality products with minimal formal specifications.
Salsa is powered by a powerful combination of JAVA and our own server-side SalsaScript framework, which uses embedded Javascript, all back-ended by Tomcat, MySQL, MongoDB, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
About You

  • You’ve been doing this for at least three years now, and you’re pretty good at it.
  • Ideally, you’re already familiar with SalsaScript (if not, we’ll train you!), but barring that, you are already deeply familiar with Javascript, and have experience working with similar frameworks like JSP, PHP, ASP, or Ruby on Rails.
  • You are a pro with HTML and CSS.
  • You’re not afraid of a little debugging in order to solve complicated problems in a production environment.
  • You’re no shrinking violet.  We’ve got en energetic and enthusiastic team that is opinionated, diverse, and highly motivated, and you’ll fit right into a culture like that!
  • You have pretty good working knowledge of SQL databases.  We also use NoSQL-based storage.  The latter isn’t required, but if you’re familiar, that’s a huge plus.
  • You’re self motivated, and would rather not wait around to be told what to do.
