The Power Auctions software team works closely with the world's leading experts on auction design, implementing innovative ideas from an academic environment in real-world applications of high economic and social impact. For example, we are currently helping the government of Botswana to sell diamonds mined in the country directly to diamond dealers, for a market price determined in a fair, transparent, and efficient auction.

We are currently looking for software developers with Ember experience to join our team. We value well-structured JavaScript code, so are looking for candidates who have worked with recent versions of Ember and/or React, specifically using Native Classes and TypeScript. All of our code is test-driven because our solutions have to be correct.

You will be collaborating with our Project Management & QA teams to develop new software for different auction designs and customers. You may be asked to implement a set of mathematical equations or design a complex workflow. You may also be asked to interface directly with our customers at their sites to understand their requirements.
