About the Role

HqO has momentum and is looking to add the right talent to our strong, skilled team. We?re a smart, mobile, early stage company with an entrepreneurial culture and you can have a direct impact on the future of our business, starting now.

We engineer products for both consumers and enterprises that are equally critical to our value proposition. In addition, we are evolving our technology into a true global platform for integrating thousands of service providers to address the needs of this emerging space. It takes superior technology and problem-solving skills to make this work. This is where you come in.

As the successful candidate for this position, you will contribute to critical components of our product offerings. Your passion for delivering high-performance, high-quality technology will ensure that our platform continues to achieve our vision and very high standards for both our B2C and B2B customers.

As a Software Engineer at HqO, you will:

  • Implement various aspects of a product platform that spans mobile apps, web apps, a globally deployed AWS-hosted back-end, and high-end analytics.

  • Evolve our technology in alignment with our architecture and technology vision working closely with world-class colleagues.

  • Participate in all aspects of an Agile/Scrum engineering process from sprint planning to retrospective. You will directly impact how we operate as a team because it?s your team.

  • Add to the spirit and culture that keeps our people happy, our team awesome, and HqO a great place to work.


You bring several years of design and development experience to the table. You possess solid skills in several of our core technologies that include Node.js, React.js, JavaScript, React Native, TypeScript, HTML/CSS, REST APIs, GraphQL, SQL, and Linux. You may also be experienced working with AWS and at least its more popular services, which would be a great plus. Our engineers are committed to quality and use Postman for test automation. You are truly serious about quality and honing your craft.

You are at home with tools such as GitHub, Slack, JIRA, and G-Suite or similar. Beyond those staples, the more experience with tools related to the process of defining, building, delivering, and managing great software the better.

You are someone who enjoys solving problems while contributing new ideas leading to continuous improvement for the team. You enjoy working closely with the engineering team to find better ways to deliver great quality software in a collaborative open environment.

You have a strong Computer Science or comparable background including OO fundamentals and design patterns. Specifically, you probably have a B.S. in Computer Science or a related engineering discipline and may even an M.S. We value formal education, but the right experience and attitude of learning also go a long way. You need to know ?why? things are, not just ?what? they are. You also know and demonstrate that staying current is a never-ending process that requires proactive effort. You enjoy passing knowledge on and believe as we do that everyone has something to teach and something to learn.

You have equal passion for technical excellence and seeing your work have an impact. The team you?ll be joining feels the same way and is never content until the results are in. We move fast and win as a team. This is your comfort zone as well. You are a team player who will contribute to the company?s culture of collaboration, learning, accountability, and above-expectations performance. We also make it a point to have fun along the way ? success should be enjoyed.

You aspire to great things and are willing to work to get there.
