The Team

The Ceros Engineering team supports Ceros' core product, the Ceros Studio, as well as our new product offering; MarkUp.

MarkUp is the leading visual commenting platform for images and live websites. It’s the perfect companion in your creative process to bring teams together, helping close the feedback loop for anyone that works with multiple collaborators on a project. We're currently hiring Software Engineers for both products.

As part of the Ceros product team, you’ll be working with a small, cross-functional group of the most talented people you’ve ever worked with. We hire only passionate and creative people with a proven and unquestionable ability to execute, and every member of the team is equally responsible for moving the product forward.

We have a dynamic company culture that collaborates daily. We care deeply about the user experience, and we debate passionately about our ideas. When you work at Ceros, you check your ego at the door, and you aren’t afraid to be honest, especially to yourself. We take our jobs seriously but ourselves not so much -- whether it’s cracking jokes in the chat room or poking fun at the CEO’s atrocious spelling.

The Role

Designing and building our products is not an easy task. We require the best-of-the-best Engineers, Designers, and QA Testers, ready to bring the functionality of desktop software to the web, often pushing web browsers to the limits of what’s currently possible. 

The Ceros studio codebase is 95% JavaScript and comprised of multiple single-page applications with a client-heavy focus. The team uses libraries like jQuery, Require, and Backbone. The Ceros Studio is architected around the HTML5 Canvas element.

The MarkUp codebase is 92% TypeScript, comprising multiple services and packages, predominantly NodeJS based. The team uses libraries like React, Express, Lerna, Webpack and Jest.

We’re not language zealots. We believe in using the right tool for the job, and our current server-side infrastructure runs PHP, Node.js, Redis, AWS Aurora, Docker, Jenkins, Kubernetes, Terraform etc. on the Amazon AWS cloud.

Key Responsibilities

  • Writing maintainable code (probably goes without saying)
  • Having your day ruined by functional QA testers who find every bug you write
  • Planning and leading high-complexity stories and epics
  • Reviewing story docs and offering insights on impacts to other parts of the application
  • Performing code reviews and helping to enforce our code and architectural standards
  • Participating as a primary on-call resource for service disruptions
  • Handling superfriend responsibilities with minimal assistance
  • Acting as release owner
  • Mentoring other software engineers
  • Suggesting new technologies and techniques to improve engineer productivity
  • Agonizing over the user experience until even a trained monkey could use the product
  • Collaborating with and mentoring your peers on security best practices
  • And finally, deploying your code to production and seeing the customer create something amazing and beautiful with it.

Key Things to Know

  • This is a remote role
  • We want you to start ASAP
  • This is a full-time position

Benefits

  • Competitive salary
  • Unlimited vacation days
  • Stock options
  • Premium health insurance
  • Wellness Fridays (shorter work days)
  • Excellent gear (15” Macbook Pro, iPad, external monitor, etc.)
  • Paid parental leave
  • Virtual experiences in which Cerosians can collaborate, educate, and create social connections with one another

At Ceros, we are deeply committed to the recruitment, retention, and growth of diverse talent; uniting people from unique backgrounds in our shared passion for unlocking creativity through technology.
