Full Stack Engineer - Onsite, SOMA San Francisco (Elixir/Phoenix)

Sparta Science cloud-based intelligence platform trains top professional athletes (think NBA, NFL, MLB, pro soccer, rugby), elite university sports teams, and top tier military Special Forces units. Our platform leverages our proprietary software and force plate technology to customize training plans and prevent injury.

We’re looking to add full-stack engineers to our small, collaborative development team. You’d be a great fit if you are comfortable working on both front-end and back-end code, like to pair program all day, like writing your tests first, enjoy constructive dialogue as much as shipping code, and are excited about regularly delivering a product that has an impact. Our app is written in Elixir, which we love because it combines a beautiful, Ruby-like syntax with substantial performance improvements. Working with us, you’ll have the opportunity to learn this cutting-edge language or to improve your existing skills. We use the Phoenix web framework and Elm for the complex parts of our UI. We believe in working at a sustainable pace—you’ll typically code for 8 hours each day, and then you’re off to relax, recharge, and refocus. Our office is in SOMA, a 10-minute walk from BART and Caltrain.

What you’ll bring to the table
3+ years of Software Development experience
Experience in Test Driven Development (TDD) and agile methodologies
Strong interpersonal communication skills and the ability to work well with our team
Desire to work in a pair-programming environment
Have a passion for quality and writing clean, solid, readable code that scales and performs well
Passion for growing your skills, tackling interesting work, and solving challenging problems
BA/BS in Computer Science or related field, or equivalent experience
You are an amazing teammate - you challenge and encourage your team to improve while respectfully learning from those around you

Nice to haves
Experience in coding languages Elixir/Phoenix, CSS/SASS, Elm, Ruby on Rails
Working knowledge of agile/XP software development
Experience with pair programming
