The Power Auctions software team works closely with the world's leading experts on auction design, implementing innovative ideas from an academic environment in real-world applications that have high economic and social impact.

We are currently helping the government of Botswana sell diamonds mined in the country directly to diamond dealers, for a market price determined in a fair, transparent, and efficient auction. We are also currently building all of the 5G spectrum auctions for the FCC, to enable build-out of the next generation of cell phone service.

We are currently looking for software developers with Ember experience to join our team. We value well-structured Javascript code, so prefer candidates who have worked with one of the major recent Javascript frameworks.  All of our code is peer-reviewed and test-driven because our solutions have to be correct. That said, it is important to us to have a positive and collaborative relationship between all of our team members.
