About Ceros

Ceros is an experiential platform that empowers the creation of bespoke, immersive digital experiences without code. We’re passionate about helping companies transform their static digital content into engaging experiences. From custom microsites to immersive interactive webpages, you can build it with Ceros. Publish and update live content and instantly embed it into your site or social media platforms such as Pinterest or Snapchat. Join us and be part of the movement to enable everyone to create experiences that matter.

Our customers include some of the world’s leading brands, such as Mashable, Bloomberg, Red Bull, United Airlines, and AIG.

We are well-funded and institutionally-backed by prominent investors including Sumeru Equity Partners, Grotech Ventures, Greycroft, and Starvest Partners.

The Role

Designing and building the Ceros platform is not an easy task. We require the best-of-the-best Software Engineers, Designers, and QA Testers, ready to bring the functionality of desktop software to the web, often pushing web browsers to the limits of what’s currently possible.

Our codebase is 95% JavaScript and the Ceros product is comprised of multiple single-page applications with a client-heavy focus. We use libraries like jQuery, Require, and Backbone. The Ceros Studio is architected around the HTML5 Canvas element. We’re not language zealots. We believe in using the right tool for the job, and our current server-side infrastructure runs PHP, Node.js, Redis, AWS Aurora, Docker, Jenkins, etc. on the Amazon AWS cloud.

The Team

As part of the Ceros product team, you’ll be working with a small, cross-functional group of the most talented people you’ve ever worked with. We hire only passionate and creative people with a proven and unquestionable ability to execute, and every member of the team is equally responsible for moving the product forward.

We have a dynamic company culture that collaborates daily. We care deeply about the user experience, and we debate passionately about our ideas. When you work at Ceros, you check your ego at the door, and you aren’t afraid to be honest, especially to yourself. We take our jobs seriously but ourselves not so much -- whether it’s cracking jokes in the chat room or poking fun at the CEO’s atrocious spelling.

Key Responsibilities

  • Lead a cross-functional team responsible for the development of the Ceros applications and facilitate collaboration between the Software Engineers, Quality Engineers, Designers and Product Managers on your team to implement improvements, new features, bug fixes and more.

  • Meet regularly with senior management to communicate team status and roadblocks and work closely with stakeholders on other teams when needed to achieve the team’s and company’s goals.
  • As a technical leader, answering any questions that come up while also leading solutions discussions, making decisions when needed and being the example for writing clean, maintainable code.
  • Providing architectural guidance to your teammates and pushing them towards better development decisions, working with them to improve their architectural judgement.
  • Define and maintain an efficient and clear team process and uphold your team to our engineering standards, and Ceros core values.
