We work with cutting-edge technologies in the areas of: signal processing, speech and voice analysis, data mining, and machine learning. Securus Technologies is looking for a Senior Web Developer to join our investigative solutions team.


    The Senior Web Developer contributes to all facets of the development, maintenance, and support of the product. Your work will focus on the front-end of our hosted SaaS application adding additional features and functionality. You will be responsible for coding web-based UIs in JavaScript/CSS. Candidates with additional experience implementing the middle-tier RESTful services used by the front-end are preferred.

    The successful candidate will be a technically proficient, self-starter, with excellent communications skills and a demonstrated ability for selfdirected learning.

They will be familiar with how those frameworks use JavaScript & CSS under the hood and be able to write/debug code without them. They will have experience and be comfortable creating functionality "from scratch" given a mock-up of desired look and behavior, without relying on a preexisting template (i.e. from a blank page). They will care about software quality, not only in the desired functionality, but also in designing the system to fail gracefully in error conditions. They will desire and be able to discuss trade-offs in design choices and how they affect the properties and behavior of the system as a whole. During design and implementation, they have a focus on automated testing. They have an ownership mentality.
