JavaScript Application Engineer

at Fancy Hands in New York, NY   —   Apr 12, 2014   |  
Overview
JavaScript is often referred to as a front-end language (the implication being it's not used to do the real work of the app, just for form validation). At Fancy Hands, JavaScript is a first class citizen at all levels of our stack. We make heavy use if it on the front-end (we essentially load an empty DIV and JS takes over from there), but it's also a vital component of our back-end, part of which runs on Node.js. We're looking to build a world class JavaScript team and would love it if you were here to help get that started.
