Helpful Human is a Seattle-based interactive design and development company that works on interesting and challenging web development projects for startup-minded enterprise companies.

We're looking for a few capable devs to work on some full-stack web apps for our clients. Our stack is Golang, GraphQL, React, Node, and Typescript (GGRNT. Not a real thing but let's get it started) yet nothing matters more than delivering measurably awesome outcomes for our customers.

A super candidate will have the following qualities:

- Intermediate to Senior HTML, CSS, and JS chops (Required)
- Experience with React (required), Typescript (desired), and Node
- Experience with GraphQL or at least deeply interested
- The ability to jump into new and unfamiliar codebases and immediately add value
- A solutions-orientated mindset. We need people who don't just take orders but can think through the business challenges and opportunities inherent in all the projects we tackle.
- A good communicator with the ability to regurgitate complex ideas in your own words and understanding

You will have the opportunity to:

- See your code create super positive outcomes for recognizable, global businesses
- Work to create best-practice design/build systems for scalable and performant UX
- Engage with interactive design leaders and other talented developers
- Become much better at thinking like an entrepreneur
- Do a jig (if you want)

Here are some other things we prefer:

- Affable: You're a likable and easy-to-get-along with human
- Aptitude: You know stuff but, more importantly, you can learn new things quickly and apply them in a real-world dev environment. You take pride in crafting solid production code which will stand the test of time (Spaghetti is for date nights)
- Adaptable: When it "hits the fan", you're not freaking out. You are the kind of person who can pivot, adjust, take-a-deep-breath and jump in where needed
- Accountable: No blame game here, you take responsibility for your actions and also celebrate what we do together vs hogging glory for yourself
- Human: Code is great but we strive together, as humans, for the sake of other humans. This is a people business.

A bit more about us:

- Our office is in Pioneer Square in a shiny new glass building
- We have our own SaaS product that's slowly taking off
- We love being excellent at designing and building stuff


We have a flexible work-from-home policy (up to two days a week), paid time off, a comprehensive health, dental, and vision plan, 401k, college savings plan, 100% paid Orca commuter benefit, standing desk, and a yearly company retreat among other things.

We encourage anyone who thinks they're an excellent fit to apply.

Don't just click buttons. Please include a short memo on why you're a good fit. We're looking forward to chatting with you!
