Hello there.

The opportunity to change entire industries with your engineering expertise. The opportunity to collaborate with kind, creative people who genuinely care about your growth and well-being. The opportunity to perform on your own terms–to work how you want, when you want, so you can live life your way.


An opportunity to do things differently. 


Here at Praxent, we care about our clients. But so does every digital agency. What sets us apart is the way we care about each other. Chosen as one of the Best Places to Work in Texas five different times, our diverse and brilliant team of experts is steady and growing. Now, we’re asking you to come along for the ride. 


If you’re a person who loves new challenges and the description below sounds familiar, apply today. We’d love to build something new with you.

 

Who You Are (Personality Type)

  • You care about code. You feel energized engineering and implementing changes across multiple form factors.

  • You’re not afraid of commitment. To dev environments and to others. You stand by your word.
  • Constantly updating. You’re always evolving your knowledge; you work well in ever-changing environments.
  • An outspoken advocate. You speak up when you see a better solution.
  • You don’t get boxed in. You do creative work (even with constraints).
  • An expert sharer. You love sharing what you know with others; about engineering and your interests.

  • You live by a code of your own. One of service. You genuinely care about the needs of your clients and coworkers. Your honor depends on it.

  • You want change. BIG CHANGE. You know it takes effort to improve the world around you.
  • An engineer of efficiency. You work at a high-level without waste. You can get it right the first time. 
  • High standards, humble head. You expect the best from yourself. You don’t get a big head when you are.
  • Proactive, proactive, proactive. We won’t micromanage you. You like that because you get results without being told what to do. 


What You’ll Be Doing (Job Tasks)

 

  • Developing, debugging, testing–doing it again. You work with developers, designers, and product managers to create complete software built with integrity.
  • Getting into the scrum of things. You work on agile project teams. You scrum to deliver software and all of its enhancements.
  • Playing detective. You get to the bottom of things. You perform root-cause analysis to create elegant solutions for software and business problems.

  • Defining + documenting. What is it? How does it work? You can write out any non-functional requirements.
  • Communicating and collaborating clearly. You speak freely and openly in helpful, solution-focused ways.
  • Doing it all. You implement whole features. You can do it working with an architect or another senior developer.
  • Eyeing and estimating. You estimate work accurately. Its complexity doesn’t phase you.
  • Sharing your wisdom. No two projects are alike. You teach us what you learn from each one, so we can all get better together.


We’d Love to Hear From You If (Job Requirements)


  • You have 5+ years experience in software engineering. Experience is commensurate with skill. If you’re a world-class coder, let us know.
  • More specifically, 5+ years experience in all of these wild worlds. JAVA RESTful API development, the Spring Framework, Hibernate, Maven, Linux Operating Systems (i.e. Mac), MySQL.

  • You have 3+ years experience building React+Redux applications. Experience is still commensurate with skill. 

  • Special Bonus Round! Do you know Docker? Jenkins? Vagrant+VirtualBox? Liquibase? A special prize is headed your way!

  • You’re comfortable with command. Not because we’re going to boss you around. But because you feel good on Linux/Unix command line.

  • Automating feels automatic. When it comes to Git, Gulp, NPM, Bower, and others–web tooling and automation seems simple. 
  • You’re working with a stacked deck. You can implement changes at all layers of the software stack; including database, services, and user interfaces. 

  • You have that paper or you’re a pro. You have a bachelor’s degree or 2-4 years of relevant experience.
  • Authorized to work in the U.S. 
  • Final Bonus Round! It’d be nice if you had the following know-how: devOps/sysOps, an advanced understanding of object oriented and MVC principles, and you feel good working in JIRA.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. 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.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
