JavaScript Developer

Viget is a digital agency / software development shop headquartered just outside of Washington, DC, (in Falls Church, VA) with additional offices in Durham, NC, Boulder, CO, and Chattanooga, TN. We've been at it since 1999 and have earned a solid reputation as a rare firm that does both great design and development work when building digital products and marketing platforms.

We solve interesting problems with code. Ruby and React mostly, but also Python, Elixir, and more.  Our JavaScript developers don’t work in isolation -- they work alongside industry-leading product and project managers, interface and product designers, and front-end and back-end developers to create compelling products and platforms.  

Our teams also collaborate directly with clients that offer great variety -- from major brands like ESPN and Dick’s Sporting Goods to world-changing nonprofits like WWF and WCS to emerging startups and tech leaders like Google.  Viget == variety.

Our JavaScript Developers:

  • Have formal software development training and/or practical experience building client-side software applications in JavaScript using React or similar libraries.
  • In some cases also have skills that overlap either with our Application Developer role or our Front-End Developer role. 
  • Have experience with/interest in building native mobile apps using React Native. 
  • Embody our core values of integrity, work ethic, collaboration, creativity, and lifelong learning (especially important as we continually evaluate and embrace new technologies).
  • Enjoy working in our collaborative environment that balances team-wide communication (e.g., daily stand-ups, Slack discussions, code review), occasional pair programming sessions, and frequent blocks of focused, uninterrupted work time for independent work.
  • Speak and write well.
  • Enjoy working with distributed version control systems (git is our favorite).
  • Care about modern best practices, including code reviews, continuous integration and deployment, and iterative development.
  • Love working alongside our award-winning design team.
  • Actively participate in the developer / technology community by contributing to open source projects, attending (and in some cases speaking at) events, and/or writing articles.
