CraftJack is changing the way homeowners and home service providers connect and communicate. We build products that solve real problems and focus on the experience of the end user.

Like any great company, our success is built around a great team. We’re looking to add a very talented .NET web developer to our team to help build new products and improve existing ones.

Life at CraftJack

CraftJack is not your average startup. We are a fast growing company that was recently acquired by a major internet brand. This is a great opportunity for you to get involved at an early stage.

Think of us as a startup without all the risks of working for a startup. That means no late (or missed) paychecks, no need to find your own expensive health insurance plan, no working for a tiny fraction of your market value. It also means no corporate atmosphere with strict dress code, no watered down coffee (we have a Keurig), and no stuffy bureaucracy to drown out your ideas.

We value every team member and if we hire you, it’s because we think you can do big things with us.

What we look for in a candidate

A small team doesn’t have room for big egos. If the only right solution to a problem is your solution, then you’re probably not a good fit. We hire people who are smart, driven, hard working, and collaborate well with others. We hire people who can shift from project to project but also stay focused. We hire people who write quality, clean code. We hire people with a passion for problem solving and coding. Most importantly, we hire people who really want to work with us.

Technical requirements

·       Three to five years of software development experience focused on public-facing website development.

·       An in-depth understanding of object-oriented C#/ASP.NET development -- preferably using ASP.NET MVC3 and the Razor engine.

·       Have the skill and patience to craft HTML and CSS to meet rich design and cross-browser requirements.

·       Experience with JavaScript and jQuery that extends beyond utilizing publicly available plugins.

·       Exposure to using source control in a small team environment – preferably Subversion, Git or Team Foundation Server.

·       Possess a broader knowledge of Internet and mobile technologies, including server configuration and troubleshooting.

·       Be a driven and positive with the ability to thrive and deliver in a fast-paced, innovative and creative environment.

Wicked skills at darts, ping pong or sharpshooting with a Nerf gun will not be overlooked.

 

Compensation & benefits

We offer a competitive compensation and our benefits package is second to none with 401(k) plan with employer match, paid vacation, paid holidays, plus extensive health, dental and vision coverage.

An Insider's view of CraftJack

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Our ethos on work-life balance and productivity today is all about performance and delivering results; less about the hours and more about the quality of the work itself. We prefer working smarter than working longer, often resulting in individuals curating their own day with enough overlap for collaboration while affording personal flexibility.

Noah Mishkin

Founder & VP of Operations

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

After receiving feedback and questions about certain projects, efforts, initiatives, and how we prioritize product releases, it was clear we could use more information. This launched a new internal video series called, "What Is That?!", 13-minute interviews explaining how efforts align with core values, corporate goals, and customer-centric care.

Founder & VP of Operations

How does the company support your career growth?

Individuals have opportunities to grow here at CraftJack with access to tuition reimbursement, certificate programs, and internal mentorship. We host quarterly business reviews which include a workshop focused on personal and professional growth. We've seen careers grow from part-time internships to full-time new management positions.

Noah Mishkin

Founder & VP of Operations

What is your vision for the company?

I see CraftJack continuing to do what we are best known for: questioning every precedent, principle, and asset within our industry, staying true to our customer's best interest while exploring new technology driven innovation to improve on the successful developments we've already created.

Noah Mishkin

Founder & VP of Operations

What are some things you learned at the company?

A key fundamental factor in my leadership style is empathy. It's less about making decisions based on what I've read or heard works, rather, determining what I myself would and would not appreciate as an employee. Additionally, learning how to be present in a moment and listen well is often far more effective than providing advice.
