What's the typical workday like?

In a typical morning, you might:

Get to the office, get settled, join a morning scrum with the CTO to check in with progress. You grab a croissant, and some coffee from the snack bar. You sync up with the CTO to clarify the workflow of one of your features and come up with a more efficient implementation.

You look at your hands, the croissant is now gone. It's in your belly. Coffee in hand, you head to your desk, open your IDE and chip away at the new feature. But before you know it, it's lunch time! You and the team stroll to Tender Greens on the Promenade and share some friendly banter about how progressive web apps are going to change the world, and why you think Season 2 of Westworld was just okay.

Similar to companies like Google, we have a 3-month contract-to-hire approach here. Full-time. 5 days a week. In-office. After the introductory period, you'll be automatically upped to a full-time, W2 position and unlock additional benefits.
