Introduction

We’re looking to bring a talented UI developer on board to help us make our client’s customers’ lives easier. UI is vitally important to Anatta—it underpins so much of what we do—and we’re keen to hire someone who can help keep us at the top of our game.

Anatta is an ecommerce agency that helps digitally native brands be their best selves. In more than 10 years of operation we’ve been lucky enough to work with some incredible brands, including WeWork, Rothy’s, Four Sigmatic, Berkey Filters, NutriBullet, Smartypants Vitamins, Dr. Mark Hyman, Marie Forleo and scores more.

As we hope you’ll discover over the next couple of minutes, we’re a passionate bunch here at Anatta. We love the work we do, and we strive to wow our clients with everything we deliver.

In order to do that, we make sure we never stand still. We’re always on top of the latest trends so that we can provide our clients with truly unrivaled services and solutions. Ultimately, we try to improve as a business each and every day…

 

…And that’s where you come in!

 

We’re looking for problem-solving coders with the tenacity to work a challenge until they’ve found the best solution. But this is no ordinary coding role! Like all our engineers, you’ll be working closely with our clients on a very regular basis, leading tech discussions or helping them implement outside-the-box solutions to their biggest pain points—great communication skills are a must!

This role will be based in our Charleston, SC office. 

All our developers also work collaboratively with many different teams internally, so you’ll spend plenty of time talking to our visual designers, project managers, and your fellow developers, making use of cutting-edge technology to implement truly remarkable interactive experiences across multiple platforms that impress our clients while pushing your own professional boundaries.

Someone with a passion for the latest technology would be a great fit for this position, as we’d also like you to research and evaluate new solutions that may improve our company- wide performance, and the elegance of how we work (helping us get better every day!).

  • A B.S. / M.S. in Computer Science (or equivalent experience)

Our Culture

As we’ve already mentioned, we’re rather passionate about our work here at Anatta. But we’re also passionate about making work seem… well, less like work. A big part of that comes from hiring the right people. We aren’t looking for the first resumé that checks off all the skills we need, but for a person who will feel as at home at Anatta as we do.

So, before you introduce yourself to us, we thought we’d introduce Anatta to you…

We aren’t corporate, and we never will be. There are just over 40 people working for Anatta, and we don’t have plans to grow much beyond 60 in the future. That’s because we’re about quality, not quantity, and we believe the surest way to be the best is to build a crack team of motivated, talented people doing work they love. We don’t want to dilute that by hiring thousands of people, and we don’t want to inherit the corporate culture that seems to infiltrate companies of a certain size.

We believe part of what makes Anatta awesome (if you’ll pardon us for showing off for a moment), is that we combine many of the best bits of both big and small companies. At Anatta, as in leading corporations, you’ll be exposed to some of the best brands out there, working with some seriously cool products and tech on high-profile, high-impact projects. But just like a startup, you’ll be able to get things done quickly, and you’ll be given lots of responsibility and autonomy from day one: If we hire you, we trust you.

We’re big believers in diversity, too. Of those 40+ employees we mentioned, we have people from Mexico, Ukraine, Singapore, Korea, England, Peru, and more. We also built Anatta to be deliberately flat, meaning everyone has access to everyone else including our CEO.

In fact (and it may be a little bit of a cliché), we really do like to think of ourselves as one big family. If you give us your best, we’ll give you ours in return. The success of Anatta rests on the people we employ, so we take great care to make sure they’re happy, stimulated, and motivated. We also provide extensive training and certification sponsorship to make sure you’re always moving in the right direction in your career.

You may have noticed a lot of our clients operate in the health / wellness space. That’s because these industries are close to our hearts. There’s no requirement to take up a triathlon or pole vault in your spare time, but we’re always running one wellness initiative or another, so an interest in healthy living is a bonus.

Lastly, let us say this: our culture isn’t something we prescribe. We want to make sure you’re going to love your time with Anatta, but this section you’re reading right now is about more than that.

Sure, we want you to come on board and be a part of our culture. But we also want you to help shape it moving forwards. Just as we never stand still in our quest to remain at the cutting edge in ecommerce solutions, we’re also constantly trying to make Anatta an even more magnificent place to work each day. If you have ideas about what makes a company culture special, Anatta is a place where you can turn those ideas into a reality.

 

What are the Benefits of working at Anatta?

With offices in Bangalore, Charleston and Los Angeles, we are a fun and diverse team of highly-driven individuals who experience and share deep joy for our work and the contributions we make in the world. When you work for Anatta, you get to be a part of that too!

 

On the slightly more tangible side, we also offer:

  • 3% 401(k) contributions 
  • Unlimited sick days
  • Company-sponsored medical plans
  • Healthy snack and drink options in office (mostly from Thrive Market)
  • Cutting-edge technology (both hardware and software) 
  • Annual company retreats
  • Regular team events, group dinners, trips
  • A broad range of sponsored training programs for all roles

 

Next Steps

We wanted this job description to give you as much of an insight as possible into what it might be like to work for Anatta. If you think you’re a good fit for the team and have the skills we’re looking for, we’re very much looking forward to hearing from you.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
