Live By Your Code

We’re looking for someone to join our office and culture who loves building websites with a purpose.

We really don’t care about the skills you have in specific languages, although if you don’t know HTML, CSS, or client-side Javascript then we’d be surprised if you’re a good fit. Smart, dedicated people can pick up new languages and frameworks relatively quickly.

Experience with WordPress, Sass, Twig, Laravel, relational databases with millions-to-billions of rows, and social media APIs are a plus but not a requirement.

  • Are you the kind of person who always has a few projects going on at once?
  • Do you sometimes stay up late at night tinkering with new languages and frameworks, or hacking away at an undocumented API?
  • Are you the kind of person who isn’t afraid of making and admitting a mistake — and then learning from it?
  • Do you enjoy learning from people with different backgrounds and skills than your own
  • Are you interested in utilizing digital tools and data to increase personal and economic freedom for more people?

If the above are true, you’re probably a good fit for Red Edge.

About Red Edge

We’re an Arlington-based digital advocacy firm which primarily assists clients on free-market and personal liberty issues with apps, ads, and ideas. We’ve made some awesome stuff, but you can be a part of making our best products yet.

We:

  • Work in a fast-paced, exciting environment
  • Don’t care about titles
  • Do care about talent
  • Don’t care about your grades in school
  • Do care about passion
  • Won’t be impressed by the five years of “experience” you had stagnating at one job
  • Will be impressed by a cool project you made on your own

The ideal candidate would:

  • Enjoy kicking ass
  • Work hard and play hard
  • Possess a good sense of humor
  • Relish the chance to try new things
  • Know what they don’t know, and have a drive to improve
  • Be humble enough to admit mistakes, and smart enough to learn from them
  • May lack for experience but not of a desire to learn
  • Enjoy messing with the status quo
  • Want to create one’s own job description based on his/her own success
  • Work in our Virginia office location

About our office:

  • We’re located right above the Courthouse metro stop and are an easy commute from just about anywhere. Transit or parking benefits are available.
  • Our hours are 9:30-6:30, but flexible. Our focus is on getting stuff done and having fun, not waiting for a clock.
  • Dress is casual, except sometimes when we have to meet clients.
  • In general, we prefer common sense to typed out rules.
  • We subsidize health insurance and transit or parking, sponsor and contribute to a 401(k) for eligible employees, and may offer potential relocation adjustment commensurate with position and fit.
  • As you’d expect from a tech-focused firm, we have snacks, a well-stocked bar, and beer in the refrigerator.
