Apply

The Power Auctions software team works closely with the world's leading experts on auction design, implementing innovative ideas from an academic environment in real-world applications of high economic and social impact. We have run well over 200 high-stakes auctions on six continents, including the FCC spectrum auctions, spectrum auctions in Canada and Australia, electricity auctions in the UK and the US, rough uncut diamond auctions for Botswana, and offshore wind rights auctions for the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (U.S. Department of Interior).

We are currently looking for software developers with Ember experience to join our team. We value well-structured JavaScript code, so are looking for candidates who have worked with recent versions of Ember and/or React, specifically using Native Classes and TypeScript.  All of our code is test-driven because our solutions have to be correct. Given the nature of our project deliveries, we are able to stay current with the latest versions of our languages and tools.

You will be collaborating with our Project Management & QA teams to develop new software for different auction designs and customers. You may be asked to design a complex workflow or implement a data-rich screen of bidding information.  You may also be asked to interface directly with our customers at their sites to understand their requirements.

Power Auctions is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We encourage candidates from underrepresented minorities to submit resumes for consideration. Please note that this position does require U.S. Citizenship or Permanent Residency.
