Front-end Fools Wanted (with an unhealthy love for beautiful software)

, Chennai · germ.io · Short-term contract · Programming

What are we looking for?

A front-end developer who goes beyond HTML, CSS and JS to fall in love with the software she/he builds. You will be responsible for bringing elegant designs and interactions to life, first on the web and then on mobile devices as well.

Stuff you should have:

  • Pretty good with HTML and CSS.
  • Have at least working knowledge of JavaScript (brownie points if you know Ember JS).
  • Have a bit of an eye for good design and software.
  • Not be a jerk. At least 50% of the time.

Stuff we don't care about:

  • Your years of work experience
  • Your diploma certificates
  • Your love life

Who are we?

We are a fledgling company, founded with the experience we've built working in some of the hottest software product companies in the world. We have a massive track record of building, marketing and shipping awesome products used by tens of thousands of users every day. We are currently working on a very very early stage project management software that we believe will change the way people work on their ideas and get them through to execution.

Why should you join us?

Let me cut to the chase here. You must be a fool to join a fledgling company. You need to have more than the recommended dose of “batshit crazy” to  throw in your heart and soul and sweat with just a big bag of hope to back you. You must be a delusional lunatic. And that's why we want you.

Why? Because you’re like us. A dreamer who believes so strongly in your dreams that you’re ready to flex fourteen hours a day everyday and still wake up fresh for another fourteen hours more. A front-ender who is so passionate about having fluid widths, you’re almost definitely OCD.  An outcast. An alien. A freak of nature that must never be set loose without a straightjacket.

“The people crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do” - Steve Jobs

As part of the germ team, you’ll be working with a bunch of loons who’ve walked the talk. You'll be part of the core team, jumping in early in the game. You'll be the person making decisions on what the product should look and feel like, the one calling the shots, the one deploying those changes.

As a fellow loon, you’ll be a part of the core germ team. You’ll be able to get your hands dirty in every part of a startup, from writing code to returning sales calls. You will ask yourself the right questions, think up the right answers, and make them see light. And you will be in direct control of what you want to be - be awesome, and we all win.

Job Perks

  • You get work on any device you choose, as long as it’s a mac
  • Your work hours are pretty flexible. You can check in any time you like, but you will never want to leave.
  • There’s round-the-clock coffee, and the occasional weekly beer.
  • You get to work with some really cool people - developers, marketers, products guys - the kind of people you can actually relax and talk life-philosophy with every once in a while.
  • When things get real intense, you can break into song-and-dance. In fact, it’s heavily encouraged.
  • Juicy enough paycheck, comparable to (and slightly higher than) the industry average.
  • If we love each other enough to work together full-time, you get crazy generous equity as well.
