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 Austin Texas 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!).
We’d Love to Talk to You if You Have…
- A B.S. / M.S. in Computer Science (or equivalent experience)
- 3+ years of professional software engineering experience
- Excellent problem solving and debugging skills with the DOM
- Experience using VueJs in production applications
- Familiarity developing Shopify, Magento, or WordPress themes
- Strong software design skills and exposure to functional programming patterns such as pure functions, function composition, and map / reduce / filter
- Experience writing unit tests with libraries such as Mocha
- Excellent communication and collaboration skills
- Experience with agile development methodologies
- A great design sense
If you have some of the following, then even better! (but don’t worry if you don’t):
- Exposure to GraphQL in client or server environments
- Experience working with AWS cloud platform services such as S3, CloudFront, and Lambda
- Familiarity with databases such as MySQL
- Ability to quickly learn a wide range of languages and tools
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?

On the slightly more tangible side, we also offer:
- 3% 401(k) contributions
- Unlimited sick days
