About Exygy

Exygy is a digital innovation studio on a mission to build resilient and healthy communities. We enable impact-focused organizations to rethink experiences and create digital products that solve their problems and delight users. Our diverse team brings a breadth of technical expertise, user-centric perspectives, and product strategy to every engagement. As a certified B-Corporation, we are driven by our fierce commitment to the betterment of humanity. Our clients include CARE International, QURE Healthcare, San Francisco Mayor's Office of Housing, and Hopelab.
Exygy has embraced a work from home philosophy and we are now a remote-first company. This role can be located anywhere in the U.S and may occasionally require some traveling for meetings or team building events. Exygy remains connected and engaged with virtual team events, weekly all hands meetings and regular zoom workshops and trainings.
Note: This is a Front-End Engineering position, for candidates with 1-2+ years experience. We have another "sister" role posted (Senior Front-End Engineer) for candidates with 3-5+ years experience. If the Senior role is a better fit for you, please consider applying for that role instead, which you can find on Exygy's Careers page.


We are constantly searching for opportunities to create digital products to radically improve people's access to social services. Exygy seeks an enthusiastic, experienced, and creative Frontend Engineer who is passionate about making a difference in the world with technology. Join our tight-knit and growing team to build a wide variety of high-impact projects with our civic and health sector clients. This is a full-time remote position.


As a front-end engineer, you’ll start off spending most of your time on one of our largest projects, an affordable housing platform. You’ll work with our cross-functional core team, and our network of remote contributors to define, design, and deliver high-quality web software. 
You will spend most of your time contributing to front-end services built with React and Typescript. You will have the opportunity to contribute to the back-end services and other projects which utilize different languages and technologies, such as: migration of older AngularJS code into modern framework; back-end services and API integrations built in Node, Rails, and integrated with external systems. Exygy has more than 12 years of successful project delivery and we have projects with a breadth of tech stacks that reflect this.
You'll be working collaboratively with our clients at times, but the role is focused on building and maintaining software, not being a consultant. You’ll also have the opportunity to make your mark on the engineering team, helping us to grow in number and in craft.

    • The skill, empathy, and desire to build with other engineers collaboratively through code reviews, joint design and mentorship
    • Ability to effectively collaborate with design and product teams
