Full-Stack Software Engineer


Abilitie is an energetic 10-person company located at the Capital Factory in the heart of downtown Austin.  We've built a profitable business creating multi-player business strategy games for corporate training. Our award-winning simulations are used in 20 countries and by many Fortune 2000 companies. 

Now we’re taking on a new challenge. We’re building a one-day networking, recruiting, and professional development event that culminates in creating a video resume. In turn we're also building the best recruiting marketplace in Austin!

We’re looking for a Full-Stack Software Engineer to join the team building both the new Nextvite platform as well as aid in supporting our simulation-based learning apps. In this role, you will be responsible for growing and supporting architecture, implementation, testing, and deployment of web applications and platform.

The right person should be:

  • A top-notch software engineer

  • A genuinely nice person

  • An entrepreneur personality who gets stuff done

  • A clear and concise communicator (written and oral)

Our shortlist of technical skills is:

1. You’re a software _engineer_.  You avoid the golden hammer, and you've considered the tradeoffs of good, fast, and cheap code. You think in terms of great architecture and maintainability.

2. You take security seriously.  Our apps house sensitive information. We’ll favor candidates with experience building software with enterprise-grade security requirements.

3. You have experience deploying a high-availability web application. You’ll need to design robust systems and be good at troubleshooting production challenges. You should know your way around a linux box. Experience with AWS and AWS APIs is a plus.

4. You’re a skilled server-side programmer. Our server-side languages of choice are JavaScript (Node) and Java, but we’re open to considering other options for the new product if the fit is right.

5. You have some front-end experience. We don’t expect you to be a whiz at front-end development and you’ll be paired with a front-end developer, but the ideal candidate should have at least some front-end experience. We use React on the front-end.
