Why Element 84?

We're taking on some of the biggest challenges in software. Petabyte search, consumer streaming, Earth science repositories, all high performance systems for some of the biggest corporate and government clients in the world. And because we're dedicated to small and flexible teams, you will be in the center of the action.

You will be the action.

We provide competitive salaries, profit sharing, and a big-company benefits package with a small-company culture. Our office is located in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia with free soda, a hotly debated candy bowl, cinema displays, and is in walking distance to lots of great food.

We've included some openings below. And we'll be honest, our hiring process is hard, but you'll know why when you see what we do.

If you're at the top of your game and looking for a harder game, then we would love to talk with you, and better yet, have you join our team.

Alexandria, VA

Back End Software Engineer

Working with large data sets in scalable environments requires a team of engineers with chops in technologies like Apache Cassandra, Clojure, Python, and Ruby on Rails. Data sets like satellite images, scientific measurements, and videos all require optimization to be served up and consumed for premium user experiences in all of our projects. So if you're interested in taking insanely complex problems and writing dead-simple code to solve it, let us know. We'd love to talk.

Front End Software Engineer

Front end web technologies are one of Element 84’s core competencies and we are looking to build our team. HTML, CSS, Javascript, or Ruby on Rails implementations for cutting edge web applications require highly skilled front end engineers of all levels. If your wheelhouse is taking a wireframe or comp and making it real we’re interested in talking to you. Make sure to mention that you get warm and fuzzy feelings when you get to refactor front-end markup for optimal browser performance. It will make us smile.

UI/UX Designer

Software is written to be consumed by users. And making that software as enjoyable and efficient as possible to use is a key piece of modern software design. Sometimes those users are people, and other times the user is another piece of software, but making that interaction work requires skill in UI/UX and Visual Design. Are you a Photoshop expert? Can you change the world with your vector illustration skills? Do you whip up user flow diagrams to plan your Super Bowl Party snack bar? If you answered yes to any of these, drop us a line. We’d like to meet you.
