Job Description:
At Project Further, we realize the importance of a well-designed, engaging and well-functioning web experience. That is why we are seeking a talented Lead web developer to join us in the ongoing development and day-to-day functioning of ProjectFurther.com. You’ll need to be hungry to “wear all hats” and work in a fast-paced startup environment alongside experienced back-end engineers. You'll also work closely with server-side developers to implement their server-side code in order to develop the complex, interactive and database driven website.

What's in it for you:
Be a part of a ground breaking company where you have an opportunity to make a major impact and truly define your technical legacy, including access to exceptional career progression opportunities! What's more, you'll gain lots of on-the-job and ground- level startup experience as a team member of a venture with truly unlimited potential. If your're a recent college grad looking for full time work, including the potential to gain valuable company equity, this is the perfect job for you! Or, if you're a talented and motivated CS/CE student looking for an exciting and rewarding full-time gig that could double as your senior project, then your prayers have been answered! You can even be self taught.... as long as you have the dedication, time commitment, and can " get the job done"! You need not live in the Austin Area to apply.

Company Description:
Project Further is a socially-conscious web based startup company which, though not a nonprofit, is committed to improving education access for those most deserving. We are preparing to alter the education funding landscape forever, $1 at a time.
Contact us by responding to this posting or directly at Employment@ProjectFurther.com for more detailed information about our company and our vision.


The job will involve working closely with designers, other developers and the Founder/CEO in crafting the future of the company. In particular, you'll be responsible for executing and ensuring the quality of Project Further's web experience.


Desired Skills & Experience

Your main responsibilities will include production, modification and maintenance of the core website and the web application's user interfaces. Familiarity with the latest web technologies is important, including excellent HTML, XHTML, CSS programming skills and utilization of PHP-Zend framework; but equally important are your enthusiasm for our vision, your desire to become a part of an exciting, true start-up venture run on Lean principles, and your willingness to learn quickly. Success in this role is measured on the ability to add new functionality that delights users while keeping the latency and load time to a minimum.
