Join the Artery Team

We’re as connected as we’ve ever been through our devices, but we’re also becoming increasingly isolated from one another in real life. Artery is a community and platform designed to bring people together for intimate cultural experiences.

We are tackling the next frontier of the sharing economy – culture. Our platform allows anyone to open their private spaces and self-organize intimate performances (music, dance, theatre, food, wellness, talks) that happen in their living rooms, backyards and storefronts. The concept is as old as sitting around a fire, but we’re introducing algorithmic relevance and social trust to scale this like never before.

Full Stack Developer

About the Role

Our beta is growing rapidly (10x in the first year) and we’re expand our core technical team to extend our API and add mobile apps. We are looking to hire frontend developers who can streamline the collaborative process that allows Artery showcases to happen.

You’ll work with a great technical team to add features on the existing web platform and launch our apps. If you are passionate about building movements and comfortable with the constant iteration and creative problem solving that a small team offers, we’d love to hear from you!

What You’ll Be Doing

  • We are seeking people who are comfortable with constant iteration and creative problem solving. The tools we need already exist – and the ideal candidate loves to find elegant ways to deploy them.

  • The basic stack includes jQuery, Underscore, Backbone, Marionette, and Bootstrap. We use NodeJS, Gulp, and Browserify in order to organize our code into modules. Additionally, we have moved to ES6 with Babel. We also use Gulp to pre-compile and organize our CSS from SASS/SCSS sources.

  • Our backend is in Golang (“Go”) a compiled, concurrency optimized and widely supported language created by Google.

  • We have been designing and updating our API to conform to RESTful principles.

  • We have structured our data using a “graph native” database called Neo4j. This allows for a flexible and efficient relevancy engine, perfect for social media systems since it's based on relationships.

About You

  • Have 5+ years' experience writing software. You’ll be working with a small team, so collaboration and leadership are critical.

  • Enthusiasm and experience with contemporary mobile apps iteration.

  • Love writing quality code driven by tests and leaving the code base better than how you found it.

  • Are ready to take on full ownership of the development lifecycle by designing, building, and operating applications.
