Job Description

Sprout Social’s web team lives and breathes JavaScript. If you do too, keep reading.

In a typical day, you’ll build new product features, improve existing features, and fix problems identified by our global user-base. From concept to testing to launch day and beyond, all of our engineers participate as active team players in order to meet tight deadlines and deliver for our customers.

How will you know if it’s a good fit? As you evaluate your options, consider this:

  • You’ll be at an industry-leading company with an unrelenting focus on making the best product possible.
  • You’ll no doubt challenge your coding skills while working with developers who are at the top of the game.
  • None of us are ever satisfied with good enough; we demand the best.
  • We’ll always value your contributions to our collective success. The best ideas always win.

Skills & Requirements

  • JavaScript gets you out of bed in the morning and newish MVC frameworks (Backbone, Ember, Angular) keep you up late at night.
  • You’re obsessively on top of the latest HTML5/CSS3 and use every Modernizr test possible.
  • Your software design skills are unrivaled.
  • You deploy bulletproof code with extra time to spare.
  • You want to be proud of what you do at your job.
