Edgar: Web Developer & Designer (Anywhere)
Posted: Aug 4, 2015
We’re looking for someone with hardcore web developer skills and a knack for design to help us build, maintain, and improve our website. Our marketing pages, blog, landing pages, and all that other good stuff are getting between 80-100k visitors per month (and growing fast), which means lots of human eyeballs ogling your stuff on the reg.
Edgar launched in Summer 2014, and we already have thousands of happy, paying, fabulous customers. We’re also growing by about ~20% month over month, so growing, evolving, and perfectifying the look and feel of our brand is pretty important stuff. (Good thing you’re so talented, right?)
You’re a confident coder who knows a thing or three about design - like one of those guys from “The Matrix,” but after a serious HGTV binge. You treat WordPress like your own personal sandbox, only better, because you never find stray code in your shoes and underwear three days later. When we talk about CSS/HTML/JS/PHP, you say “NBD.” You know how to work with an existing brand identity, but also how to make that identity stronger by creating and launching gorgeous and functional web pages. GitHub and building on the Bootstrap framework are like second nature to you. We’re not really sure what first nature is.
This is indeed a full-time work-from-home position, but we keep regular hours relative to your time zone - this isn’t one of those “make your own hours, but that means you actually get stuck working way more than you should” situations. Be responsible for yourself during working hours, and be as irresponsible as you want outside of them. (Within reason. Please don’t die.)
You can check out http://meetedgar.com/careers/ to learn more about us, but here’s the CliffsNotes version:
We’re a small team of 13 people, all working remotely across the US. We do a lot of collaborating and meme-swapping on Slack, along with virtual team meetings and futuristic video calls. We also do a twice-annual meetup week where we work together on cool projects all day and generally make fools of ourselves all night.
We’re proudly bootstrapped and profitable, which means we get to turn down VC money a lot and keep doing things the way we like. We’re pretty serious about building and maintaining an awesome, positive company culture, so, you know, no jerks.
We cover 75% of health insurance for you and your family. We do 401k matching. We’re really into ongoing education, so of course we’ll cover any education materials you need to enhance your mad skills. We don’t have a fancy espresso machine or free beer on Fridays. We will pay you enough to be able to buy all the beer and espresso you like.
- You’re a developer with an eye for design
- You live anywhere in the USA, Canada, or an International Space Station that operates in these time zones
- You can think collaboratively and work independently
- You want to work with cool people because you ARE cool people
- Pants optional
