Vonage Engineering Mission

We embody the notion of what's next now! We envision, develop and manage technology to connect the world. Our team brings excellence, passion, creativity and curiosity to the job. We look at the business environment and technologies in new and challenging ways, striving to develop and deliver integrated whole-system solutions to meet our customers’ ever-changing needs.

Why this role matters

Are you passionate about software development?  Are you a polyglot who can speak a multitude of languages and is especially proficient in JavaScript (e.g., ES6)?  Can you write a package.json file from scratch?  If yes, you’ll love this!

As one of our web client SDK engineers, you’ll join our core engineering team and use your experience to work on the OpenTok JS SDK.  It encompasses the API used to drive cross-platform, cross-browser conversations the world over.

The web client team follows Agile methodology.  We have scrums and our sprints last two weeks.  We take part in the usual rituals: sprint planning, backlog grooming, and retrospectives, to name a few.

We also have monthly Hack Days and Tech Debt Days.  Hack Day is when developers get to hack on anything of their choosing.  Some choose to do R&D.  Some choose to work on a pet project.  Others choose to learn something new, by watching a tech talk, for example.  The only requirements are that you have fun and share in what you learned.  Tech Debt Day is reserved for handling tech debt.  Developers have free range over what they want to tackle.  (Even though we have Tech Debt Days, we also make room to handle more substantial tech debt items.)
