JavaScript Game and Web Developer (Full time, 6-month contract)

Bitsbox

This is a Contract position in Boulder, CO posted July 19, 2021.

Who We Are And What We Do

Bitsbox teaches kids to love coding, because coding is about making stuff, and teaching kids to make stuff is the cat’s pajamas. We’re a small group of dedicated people who have come together to make beautiful technology and materials that advance the state of the art in our field. We love what we do!

Our team is small and primarily remote. We have a fun, laid back office in Boulder, Co. We try to maintain an even gender split. Some of us are parents; some of us aren’t. We all take work/life balance seriously. None of us are jerks. We’re snobbish about spelling and grammar, but not about where you went to school.

If you work with us, your voice will be heard. We’re too small and too busy for bureaucracy and politics. We firmly believe that good ideas can come from anyone, but that not all ideas are good ideas, and that anyone has the right to say when they think something isn’t a good idea. Even if it came from the top.

Bitsbox is a startup, so things are unpredictable sometimes. Roles change slightly and deadlines appear out of nowhere. Everyone who works here is willing to do anything it takes to make a great product, get it out on time, and help kids, parents, and teachers learn to be the best coders they can be.

The role you’re applying for

Bitsbox is building a 3D version of our kids coding platform, and we need your help. Join our small and scrappy team of devs as we launch a website for kids to play, design, code, and share Minecraft-like worlds and multiplayer games. Think Minecraft meets Roblox meets Google Meet, all driven by a beginner-friendly API made specifically for kids.

We are looking for full-time help for a 6-month time period and will be hiring ASAP.

If you love games and love the idea of teaching kids coding, then send us your resume!
