Careers at Savas Labs

The Position

We are looking to hire a JavaScript engineer to develop web and native mobile applications who is experienced in the full stack though you may prefer the front or back end. You have the ability to lead and execute efficiently as an engineer, while also have a desire to support other team members in their growth. You will collaborate with a team primarily located in Durham, NC, with other team members in the metro areas of Boston, Denver, and San Francisco. 


Working at Savas Labs

At Savas Labs, we prioritize a few things. We like people who are enjoyable to work with. We learn from and teach one another, and often the result is others learn as well either via blog posts, conference presentations, or social media. We dedicate time each week for self-improvement, socializing, and collaboration. We encourage a flexible work schedule so long as we uphold our commitments to one another and our clients. We value openness and encourage our team members to push and recognize the boundaries of their expertise in a given area. We are honest, yet respectful; this is not a cut-throat environment, but rather a supportive one. We take a lot of pride in the quality of our work and we work hard. We value a work/life balance that keeps us productive and happy. We like to have fun and yet take our values seriously. We greatly embrace inclusivity. You’ll like it here.
