Austin, TX | Development Team

Job Description


Mass Relevance is looking for a talented JavaScript/Front-end developer to...

  • Build realtime visualizations for websites and live TV,
  • Use SVG, WebSockets, CSS3 and other modern HTML5 APIs, and
  • Help enhance our platform site to be fast and easy to use.

If you have heard of any of these buzzwords, then you keep up with modern JavaScript development and we would like to hire you. Mass Relevance is looking for a front-end developer to join our small, agile dev team and to help us build projects using realtime data from our platform.

We work on extremely high-profile projects. Recently, these have included the Twitter Town Hall at the White House, The Oscars, NBC’s The Voice, American Idol, GLEE, The Royal Wedding (for both CNN and ABC), and many others. Even though we rarely code without them, our ideal hire could write without the use of libraries such as jQuery. They will create animations in CSS3 and be able to deal with cross browser SVG and Canvas issues. We embed a lot of code on 3rd party sites, and our hire will need to know the limitations of JavaScript in those situations.

About Mass Relevance:

"Welcome to Mass Relevance. You may have seen our platform at work if you see tweets on TV, such as on The Voice, The X Factor, CNN Debates or NBC News shows. We powered social experiences in Katy Perry's world tour, Pepsi's home page, Victoria's Secret fashion show, Purina's Times Square billboard, and NY Times site. We are the official partner of Twitter in this space, and we work with many other social companies, agencies and partners. 
What we do is simple -- with our software (and service), brands can capture and filter social conversations and build them into engaging brand ("owned") experiences. Said another way, our technology can turn any digital experience (and they're growing like crazy) into a real-time, participatory experience. Our software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform enables aggregation and discovery of this content, filtering and moderation, visualization and integration into displays, and analytics and reporting to lift metrics our customers care about, such as time on site, conversion, traffic and customer loyalty. And with that, our purpose is to inspire brands to involve their audiences...anywhere.
Within 5 minutes of walking in our office you will sense our team reflects our values of teamswork, transopency, agilispeed, awesomeness and freesponsibility. We want colleagues that reflect those values, and want to be part of a team that is accomplishing something great. We believe our balanced appreciation for technology, design and strong marketing/sales execution are a winning combination. In our first 2 years we’ve grown to 70 people and over 200 large media and brand customers. Yet, we feel like this is just the beginning. We're looking for passionate people to join us, to build a future together, and invent the next era of social and marketing.
