Position Description

Axiom Zen is a best practices-driven engineering team (committed to continuous deployment, continuous integration, automated testing, etc), looking for talented and startup-minded engineers to join our growing team in Vancouver, BC or Santiago, Chile.

Among others our recent works leverage React, Webpack, and Sass, as well as vanilla CSS and JavaScript. We also work with other technologies such as Go, Node.js, Swift, Objective-C, Java, Python, and Lisp.

As the ideal candidate, you have:

  • Lived and breathed HTML/CSS code with a high level of fluency; experience with CSS preprocessors and JavaScript
  • A strong grasp of CS fundamentals, algorithms, data structures, and design patterns
  • Experience shipping high quality code in a fast-paced mission-critical environment
  • Knowledge and interest in web performance and cross-browser compatibility
  • Familiarity with GitHub, with demo-able apps or code that impress us
  • Degree or diploma in Computer Science or Web Development, or equivalent education or experience 



  • You’ve worked with React or Angular
  • You’ve worked with top-tier startups
  • Blow us away with a fun CodePen link! 


How to Apply

Apply via the form below and be sure to include information that will help us get to know you better, such as links to GitHub, your portfolio, or recent side projects. Feel free to include brief details on the most impressive thing you have built or achieved -- this isn’t mandatory, but we want to be impressed!

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.


About Us

Axiom Zen is a startup that builds startups. We specialize in new venture creation, taking ideas from paper to product-market fit. We have developed the people, processes, and perspectives necessary to successfully navigate the nexus where the latest advancements in design, engineering, and business intersect.

We believe traditional approaches to innovation have stopped working; the strategic landscape is changing too fast. By the time carefully-laid plans are implemented, they are already outdated. A successful endeavour doesn’t play catch-up!

Optimizing for impact often means working with emerging technologies (like VR and AI), but also includes advances in product, visual design, and even storytelling. Our team of fifty founder-quality engineers, designers, and product leads combine a wealth of experience from fast-growing startups as well as companies like Apple, Google, and SpaceX.


Thank you for applying to Axiom Zen!
