NearForm is working
to shape a better world
with open, creative software

NearFormers shape work around life, not the other way around.
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’.

We take on exciting projects and like to push the boundaries. All NearFormers are encouraged and supported to explore and utilise emerging technologies.

What NearFormers Say
What I like most about NearForm is the flexibility on time and location to make the personal life totally compatible with the professional life but also the great level of support from the company for developing your career: conferences, books, videos... NearForm is at full throttle helping you to improve your profile.
Every day for me involves learning (probably something to do with React, hapi and web workers), pushing the limits for browser technology and delivering quality results for our clients.
The best part of working for NearForm is that we have such a large population of talented and helpful developers, that you are usually able to find someone else in the company who has a deep experience with something that trips you up.
In any given day I can be completing a customer consultancy engagement, writing training materials, updating open source projects, maintaining more than 250 Node.js modules or speaking at an event.
I am also kept busy as a member of the Node.js Core Technical Committee.
To me though, it's the opportunity to work on interesting problems alongside such passionate and creative people which makes NearForm unique.
Being on high pace, high stake product teams helping global clients is incredibly exciting. Being able to work on such regarding projects remotely is the icing on the cake.
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.
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.
The thing I enjoy most about my job is the excitement that I see building in our communities as each event approaches.
I work with some of the world's largest companies on designing new high-performance architectures. For others, I consult on solving difficult production issues.
All of this feeds directly into my conference talks and training materials.
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.
