At Noom, we use scientifically proven methods to help our users create healthier lifestyles, and manage important conditions like Type-II Diabetes, Obesity, and Hypertension. Our Engineering team is at the forefront of this challenge, solving complex technical and UX problems on our mobile apps that center around habits, behavior, and lifestyle.

We are looking for a full-stack engineer to join our Web team and help build the tools that hundreds of human coaches use every day to help our users change their lives for the better.

What You'll Like About Us

  • We work on problems that affect the lives of real people. Our users depend on us to make positive changes to their health and their lives.

  • We base our work on scientifically-proven, peer-reviewed methodologies that are designed by medical professionals

  • A respectful, diverse, and dynamic environment in which Engineering is a first-class citizen, and where you'll be able to work on a variety of interesting problems that affect the lives of real people.

  • A generous budget for personal development expenses like training courses, conferences, and books.

  • Three weeks' paid vacation, and a flexible work policy that is remote- and family-friendly. We worry about results, not time spent in seats.

  • Delicious (and nutritious) daily lunches and snacks prepared by Sam, our NYC office on-site chef.

What We're Looking For:

  • 3+ years of experience designing and managing complex web-based applications, with a focus on picking the right tool for the job. We use Django and React, with MySQL and PostgreSQL as the backing data store, but we're always on the lookout for technologies that can make our job easier.

  • An appreciation for the importance to strike a balance between getting code out quickly and following best practices. We move fast, but we like to build good software and manage risk carefully.

  • Excellent communicator: you're comfortable explaining technical problems in person and in writing.

  • Team player: you enjoy teaching new concepts to, and collaborating with, the team.

  • Strong sense of responsibility and ownership; you will have come from an environment in which people are responsible for their own code.

VIEW JOBS 10/16/2019 12:00:00 AM 2020-01-14T00:00 Alloy is where you belong! What You Will Do Alloy's product can be roughly divided into two sides—a Django/React web app and a Node.js API. We're looking for help maintaining and building out features for the former (and really the latter, too, but that's a different job, and if that sounds fun then you should talk to my colleague Jeff). * Design new features! * Talk to users, understand their requirements, and work with our full-time designer Rachelle to spec out beautiful new user experiences. * Build them! * Starting with the database design and finishing with the final UX and style touches, write good code that brings your features to life. Once they're tested, peer-reviewed, and QA'ed, they'll be deployed to our production environment. * Bugfixes! * What went wrong? How can we make sure it never happens again? We live for the root-cause analysis after getting things back up and running for our customers as soon as possible! * Support the team! * Keep the customer success crew in the loop for a feature timeline. Run a SQL query for operations to determine this month's billing amounts. Help out where you can! * You decide! It's a small team—the definition of the role is somewhat flexible and will grow to reflect your own strengths and interests! What We Are Looking For * 3+ years real-world experience working as a software developer on code in production. * While we like to think of ourselves as "platform-agnostic" in our hiring process, we expect that someone in this role will be familiar with or willing to learn our existing stack: * Python 3, Django - Serves as the back end for our dashboards. * ES6 React - Most of our complex front end logic, compiled to browser-agnostic Javascript by Webpack and Babel. * SCSS, Bootstrap 4 - Compiled by Webpack and Babel. * PostgreSQL - Our main data store. * Elasticsearch - For quick full-text searching. * Git/Github - Version control * AWS infrastructure tools * Unix command line * Teamwork experience! * We're open to people whose experience is mainly on personal projects and/or contracting but we'd really like someone who has experience working with a team. * College degree in computer science is helpful, but not necessary How to Apply Apply right here! You've found the application! We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. Alloy New York NY
