Are you an awesome front end web developer? Do you want to work on innovative new web applications, building them from the ground-up? Does building JavaScript frameworks that span the server (SSJS) and the client, using all the latest best-of-breed technologies like less, mustache, and MooTools, spark your passion? Do you feel that an elegant UI is just as important as elegant code? Are you the type of person that gets excited about writing some really clever JavaScript? Despite your awesomeness, do you feel that there’s much to learn and have an insatiable thirst to do so? What if you got to work with people like this and save the world at the same time?

Well, maybe not save the world, but we’re working on green tech, so it’s bound to help! Here’s your opportunity to put a face on the Smart Grid. Our software is at the heart of the Smart Grid revolution sweeping the globe: every electric, gas, and water meter around the world is being replaced by a “Smart” meter that can measure precisely when and how much you consume, and we’re the leading company managing that enormous stream of data.


  • Work with a small, agile team of front end developers
  • Architect and develop the UI for eMeter’s flagship products. You’ll spend most of your time coding elegant JavaScript (client- and server-side!), CSS, and HTML, and some PHP, using our MVC (Rails-like) platform and tooling
  • You’ll be using, and perhaps also introducing, cutting-edge modern web technologies and best practices: JavaScript, HTML and HTML5, CSS and CSS3, PHP, Ruby, Sprockets and SASS, REST, JSON… and then there are mobile technologies coming, Facebook APIs, ...
  • Work with product management, QA, and other technical teams
  • Play with cool technology. Seriously


  • You’re a darn good programmer, like tackling problems, have good architectural skills, and can crank out quality, well-documented code
  • You hate when QA reports bugs against your code – you take great pride in testing everything before you commit it
  • Expert knowledge of JavaScript, HTML, CSS, Ajax, and related web technologies
  • Strong knowledge of PHP or Ruby/Rails or at least the desire to carry over their goodness to SSJS
  • You think, “Hey, xyz technology is pretty rad – I’m gonna cook up some random project as an excuse to learn and play with it”
  • You’re familiar with Git and other SCMs, and have decent Unix skills
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills
  • You’re self-driven, motivated, accountable, and take full ownership of your tasks
  • Experience with unit testing, test driven development, and automation

Additional Skills / Bonus Points

  • Knowledge of RESTful web services and APIs
  • Experience with major PHP or Ruby/Rails frameworks and a solid understanding of MVC development
  • Development of, or contributions to, open source projects
  • Experience with various unit testing frameworks would be great

We look forward to hearing from you!
