Join the world’s experts. Work Remotely. Work-Life Balance. Family Friendly. Open Source Ethos
NearForm adopts a person-first approach to hiring. That means we hire the best people – it’s as simple as that. Our lucky HR team gets to pick the cream of the crop from around the world and has brought together a collection of dynamic and talented individuals we like to call ‘NearFormers’.
Work / Life
NearForm was founded on family values which are still relevant today. We have team and company wide events to build personal relationships, friendships and strong team dynamics. We also encourage regular working hours and quiet office time outside of those.
Although we are widely dispersed, NearFormers are a tightly knit team. We trust one another and care about our colleagues. Building on our open source origins, we promote the sharing of thoughts, knowledge and ideas.
We take on exciting projects and like to push the boundaries. All NearFormers are encouraged and supported to explore and utilise emerging technologies.
A Little Different
Based in a small town in the south of Ireland, we’re a little different. Our difference makes us stronger and we’re committed to creating an inclusive culture that supports everyone including people with diverse backgrounds and experiences.
Family / Flexibility
Banish the office commute and work remotely. We offer maternity, paternity, and adoption leave. Enjoy the flexibility to create a schedule that suits you. Avail of flexible hours and parental leave.
A day in the life
NearFormers shape work around life, not the other way around.
It’s best to keep your eye on our jobs board and submit a new application for any roles which you’re interested in. Our system logs all the applications we get, so we can keep candidates in mind for other roles if they stand out.
We don’t accept email applications. If there’s a role which interests you please submit an application via the relevant job description above. If there aren’t any roles which are the right fit at the moment, please follow our social profiles to keep up to date with new roles.
If a role isn’t on our website it means we’re not accepting applications for the position anymore. We process applications on a rolling basis and encourage everyone to apply as soon as they can. We’re growing super fast though, so sign up for our email updates to be the first to hear about new roles at NearForm.
We’re not looking for any recruitment support right now. We’ve got a big enough team to hire most of the roles we need. But we’ll let you know if that changes!
What NearFormers Say
As a front-end developer, I typically work on UI features for clients using modern open source libraries and tools such as react, Redux, GraphQL and Webpack. These technologies, as well as being fun to work with, lend themselves well to the rapid iterative prototyping employed at the early stages of many projects.
To me though, it’s the opportunity to work on interesting problems alongside such passionate and creative people which makes NearForm unique.
Nathan Power, Front End Developer
As a Technical Director, I have overall responsibility for a substantial team of developers working on customer projects using an agile approach. Our one team concept means that we work hand-in-hand with customers and avoid all of the common customer-vendor relationship problems. I have relished the challenge of working on large-scale international projects that have generated major revenue for our customers and repeat business for us.
Sonya Hogan, Technical Director
Working with NearForm has been an extremely positive change in my career. Getting the opportunity to work on some of the greatest and cutting-edge technologies has always been the most exciting part. I’m very proud of the work we do by producing better and faster software every day.
All that at no expense to one’s personal and family life. The “talent-first” attitude is just awesome. Being able to work remotely in your own comfort zone is the best of all.
Salman Mitha, Full Stack Developer
As a Technical Director, I don’t just manage complex customer projects, but I also work with the other XA’s on our strategic technology decisions to ensure that silos don’t form. I’m very proud of the work we have done in moving to Design-led engagements with customers. Most recently, the evolution of our Pathfinders team has resulted in a major amount of knowledge sharing both internally and externally.
Damian Beresford, Technical Director
As the NearForm Events Manager, I’m responsible for making sure that conferences such as NodeConf EU and Microservices Day continue to deliver real value to our attendees.
The thing I enjoy most about my job is the excitement that I see building in our communities as each event approaches.
Cliona Quinlan, Events Manager
NearForm was founded by a bunch of really smart people with a novel set of ideas. Trust people, treat them like adults, celebrate diversity & encourage work/life balance. It’s amazing the culture these simple ideas have produced. NearFormers look out for each other and NearForm looks out for us all. NearFormers come to work happy!
