Ember JS Front End Developer

Washington, District of Columbia, United States Full-time Allows remote

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. For example, we are currently helping the government of Botswana to sell diamonds mined in the country directly to diamond dealers, for a market price determined in a fair, transparent, and efficient auction. 

We are currently looking for software developers with Ember experience to join our team. We value well-structured Javascript code, so prefer candidates who have worked with one of the major recent Javascript frameworks.  All of our code is test-driven because our solutions have to be correct.

You will be collaborating with our Project Management & QA teams to develop new software for different auction designs and customers. You may be required to implement a set of mathematical equations or design a complex workflow.  You may also be required to interface directly with our customers at their sites to understand their requirements.
