Job Description:

The WO Digital team is looking for a talented Software Engineer to join us.  At WideOrbit, you will be a major contributor on a small, experienced team. You will work on our next-generation podcasting and streaming media solutions and your code will make an impact on the product.  We build powerful webservices, complex data pipelines, and modern UI.  You’ll have a chance to focus in areas you’re already skilled and take on new challenges over time.  Our Vancouver office has a fun and inclusive environment with a commitment to work life balance.

 

What it’s like to work at WO:

Start your day with a cappuccino from the kitchen and then join the standup meeting.  Write some code before lunch, and then take a break.  You can catch up on some reading, join one of the twice-a-month board game sessions, or learn something that interests you through your provided LinkedIn Learning and Pluralsight accounts.  Finish the code you’re working on, update tests and if you finish a feature submit a PR.  Then go home.  We work to live, not the other way around, and we encourage healthy working hours.

 

We are developers and we understand what developers need.  We’ll provide you with a work environment where collaboration is encouraged but you’re not bombarded with superfluous interruptions.  We work in modern agile feature teams that self-organize and work together to build great software.  You’ll have the opportunity to contribute to new ideas, learn new technologies, and architect new features.  Friendly code reviews make us all better and you get to be a part of that by both reviewing code and having yours reviewed.  We have fun doing what we do, and you will too.

 

Here is what you’ll be doing:

  • Designing and developing enterprise level web service software solutions.
  • Building fresh, dynamic interfaces in ReactJS.
  • Defining testing requirements, and authoring Unit and Behavioral cases plus working alongside QA to ensure quality.
  • Participating in Tech Spikes and Feasibility studies to help flesh out new ideas and unknowns.
  • Partnering with development, product support, QA and other DAS teams to make the best product we can.
  • Contributing using your awesome verbal and written communication skills.
  • Acquiring new skills, broadening existing skills, and contributing to others through knowledge sharing – we are better together.

 

Here is what we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years of experience with enterprise level software 
  • You possess quality experience writing modern web apps in GoLang, NodeJS, or PHP.
  • You understand that services need to scale, and you take pride in making sure yours do so commendably.
  • You enjoy creating modern UI in Javascript and are interested in working in React.
  • You take ownership of the things you build. You look at everything with a critical eye, and fixing a bug is as satisfying as adding a great new feature.  You’ll get to do both!
  • You work well with competing tasks, and if things change, you pivot quickly and execute smoothly.
  • If you have experience in the radio broadcast or streaming industry, that’s a plus.
  • Degree in Computer Science or related field, or equivalent practical experience.

 

Other things we do that you could contribute to:

  • Docker, C#, Cassandra, AWS and GCP technologies
  • Powerful dynamic ad decisioning engines
  • Advanced data reporting and forecasting
  • Audio engineering
  • Best in class streaming audio tools
  • Plenty more

 

Location:

This position will be based in the Vancouver, WA office.

 

Compensation, Benefits and Perks:

Besides a great work environment with smart and friendly coworkers, access to leadership and knowledge about how your work impacts company success, here are some of our benefits and perks:

A competitive salary, health insurance, sabbatical leaves, great vacation package, work/life balance, life event benefits, casual work attire, stocked café, 401(k) match, and plenty of opportunities to grow!

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.
