We’re Hiring

Extensible is growing, and we’re looking for developers interested in getting in on the ground floor of something cool. We’ll have lots of opportunities for product development, project work, training, you name it. Since we are still early on in building the company, you’ll be able to step in and make a huge impact on our direction, culture and success.

What We’re Looking For

  • Experienced web developers with solid OO chops.
    We don’t have specific requirements for language experience, years of work or education — if you’re smart and have mastered at least one programming language, you should be able to pick up whatever is needed. Some things that we’ll probably work with from time to time as we go forward: JavaScript, HTML, CSS, C#, Java, PHP, Rails, Node, Git
  • Some form of JavaScript framework experience.
    And by framework, we do not mean just jQuery. Have you implemented MVC or used some form of inheritance in a JS app (Ext JS, Dojo, etc.)? Let’s talk. Strong OO experience in a non-JavaScript framework could work too as long as you’re eager to learn.
  • Mobile development (native and/or web).
    It’s a mobile world, and if you’re not on that bandwagon yet then you’re behind the curve. It’s not a deal-breaker, but if you haven’t done mobile yet be prepared to dive in.
  • Self-starters who love agile development.
    If you need structure and hand-holding, this is likely not the position for you. This will be a highly dynamic startup environment, and you may be asked to wear many hats over the course of a typical week. The ideal candidate will thrive on that challenge.

And We’d Be Ecstatic If…

  • …you’re already experienced with Ext JS.
    The Extensible framework is based on Ext JS and we use it a lot in other projects too. Prior experience with Ext JS is a huge bonus, though anyone with OO framework experience should be able to pick it up quickly.
  • …you actively contribute to open source.
    At Extensible we love open source (our main product is dual-source) and have plans to contribute to the open source community even more in the future. Have you worked on anything open source? Include a link to your Github account and show us what you’ve done.
  • …you live in Austin.
    Remote might work too, but ideally you’d be at the table with us most days white boarding and banging out code.

A Little More About Us

Extensible was founded by Brian Moeskau, original cofounder of Ext JS (now Sencha, a 100+ person, VC-funded company). Our first product has been shipping successfully for over a year now and we’re aggressively looking to expand our business into new areas. We’re located in Austin, Texas and looking to have an impact on the local technology scene. Through Extensible’s products and open source initiatives you could have the opportunity to write code used by hundreds of companies around the world.

If this post sounds interesting to you or you know someone who might be a fit, please let us know! We don’t have a formal application process — just send over your resume or LinkedIn page and let us know a little bit about yourself and we’ll go from there.
