JavaScript Developer

Dayton, Ohio, United States


Sparkbox is looking for an experienced software developer with a real passion for building a better web. If you’re right for this position, you have solid knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (and applicable browser support) while being mindful of the diverse ecosystem of devices and connections. You care about and are eager to learn the details of deployment, commit history, refactoring, design patterns, and other development practices. You have a standards-centric view of the web, know its limitations and possibilities, and care about performance and progressive enhancement.

You will be expected to help craft solutions to client needs, recognizing the constraints of each unique situation. You’ll work with our team of designers and developers to turn those solutions into high-quality, well-tested websites and applications that are accessible to as many people as possible.


We’re actively looking for individuals that will bring a diverse perspective to the Sparkbox office. Passion and humility are vital, as you’ll work directly with our designers, project managers, and other developers at Sparkbox. You’ll also interact with clients and should feel comfortable presenting work. You'll need to be hungry to learn new things, advance your skills, and push to find new processes.

A few things you’ll spend your days with:

Inclusive Mindset

Through quite a bit of introspection and a lot of reading, the past few years have taught us that we can always do more to create an inclusive environment—both in our industry and in our team. Sparkbox has been intentionally working to build a team where we acknowledge our own faults, make all feel welcome, and humbly help each other grow.

One way we can grow is by including more teammates who challenge our worldviews and ways of thinking. To this end, we give you the opportunity on the application to share how you will bring a diverse perspective to our team. This will be a key consideration in our review process.


In return for your outstanding work, Sparkbox offers the following:

Sparkboxers also get free in-person access to our Build Right: Maker Series events. People and families come first around here, which is part of why we offer 13 paid holidays (including a week or more shutdown at the end of the year) in addition to vacation.

We have offices in Dayton, OH, and Pittsburgh, PA. Local and remote applicants are welcome. Applicants must be authorized to work in the U.S.

If you can bring a fresh perspective to a team of humble people who love what they do, we’d love to talk with you! PLEASE NOTE: we'll review and consider applications as they come in, so the sooner you apply, the better. Don't miss out!
