JavaScript Developer and Consultant

Posted Feb 21

Headquarters: Chicago, IL


Bitovi helps companies create better web applications.
We have a track record of designing and building high-profile and amazing web applications through our active Consulting practice.  Our apps are built with tests, full docs and a deployment process in place.  We created the open source tools powering the applications we build.
Bitovi has been a pioneer in producing advanced JavaScript frameworks and tools for almost a decade. We develop and maintain several open source products such as CanJS, DoneJS, and StealJS to name a few.  We are interested in product innovation and opportunities.
Our team is comprised of about 40ish developers and designers located around the US and Canada.. This is a remote, full-time position.  Due to travel requirements, at this time we are seeking candidates in the US or Canada who are willing and able to travel.


We are looking for highly qualified individuals with:

  • a good understanding of Computer Science
  • a solid background in Modern Front End Development, including JavaScript frameworks
  • professional experience developing enterprise applications
  • A CS degree, or equivalent knowledge is required

We welcome diversity and non-traditional paths into the developer profession, and advocate strongly for hiring the right person as opposed to the right combination of tech keywords.


You’ll work with clients creating applications, discussing and designing architectures, reviewing code, and researching new front-end technologies.

You’ll work closely with our Open Source team, helping us to advance, improve, and evolve our Open Source toolset.

You’ll have the opportunity to shape a small and growing company by applying your talent and passion to the JavaScript community in your own way.

We support the technical growth and development of our employees. We have an open and engaging community of skilled developers with whom you can collaborate and learn together.
