emBold is on the hunt for a new web developer. We have a large variety of clients including ecommerce, manufacturing, entertainment, government, restaurants, law firms, beach properties, doctors, startups, you get the idea. You'd be working with interesting and complex custom web applications, in addition to marketing/ecommerce based websites. This position may also end up working on our own SaaS product startup. This is a full-time position with at least a few years of professional experience already. Compensation will be based on experience and how well you dazzle us.

Most of us are currently working remotely, but we're all still local. We're possibly open to the idea of a fully remote hire, but would much prefer to get someone local, as we are looking forward to returning to some form of normal when we can in the future.

Benefits include:

  • Medical, vision, dental coverage options
  • Retirement plan matching
  • 20% client referral profit commissions
  • Bonuses
  • Flexible sick/vacation time
  • Occasional remote work
  • Disability coverage

We're looking for:

  • Experience with modern and responsive web dev tech. Javascript, PHP, MYSQL, HTML, and CSS
  • Modern Javascript experience such as ES6. Vue is a definite plus
  • GIT version control
  • Development workflow automation (such as Gulp, Laravel Mix, Pulsar, etc.)
  • CSS preprocessors like SASS or PostCSS
  • Worked with CMS platforms, such as Wordpress or Prismic
  • Reliability and strong work ethic
  • Enthusiasm for what you create, capacity to find unique solutions to unique problems, and all the usual canned employer expectation jazz
  • A passion for growing your development techniques and team collaboration to evolve project workflow and experience

Any extra bonus stuff that we'd really enjoy:

  • Laravel
  • Ruby on Rails
  • JAM stack experience
  • DevOps experience (managing Linux environments and hosting)
  • UX/UI Talent, or at least familiarity with design applications (Adobe suite, Sketch, Figma, etc.)
  • TailwindCSS


We're also looking for a potentially good fit for a Project Manager

As a small team, we sometimes get a little flexible with our roles. If you're someone who has web development or design experience and would like to transition to more of a project manager role, or are someone who already has experience managing projects for a software engineers and our company interests you, please do apply. For this, traits we'd be looking for are:

  • Great attention to detail, as quality assurance is a large part of this role
  • Enjoys communicating with clients (end users) and team members often
  • Is highly organized
  • At least some familiarity with the Agile development process

About Us

emBold is a web design and development agency that has been in business for 8 years. We're a small elite dev/design team with a lot of room for growth. The owner has 14 years of experience in the field and co-created the Summit Collective with other complimentary marketing-related businesses in the northeast Ohio area. We focus on making the job a fun and creative place for web developers and designers. We're currently a team of 6, all developers, so it's an extremely developer-focused culture. The projects we work on often present a unique challenge to keep us engaged and interested.

We're located in a 2,200 square foot office in Akron's Bounce Innovation Hub where we're surrounded by other cutting-edge product and tech development companies. You can check out a virtual tour of our space here. Networking and other community events happen regularly (at least, they did pre-COVID), as well as code meetups. We're located just a few minutes walk from the main part of downtown and near all kinds of fun locations (breweries, etc.)

It's a very laid back environment, with delicious coffee, nice equipment to work on, paid lunch just about every Friday, a 3D printer, a ping pong table, and company outings now and then. You like? Send us your resume and some project examples (or your GitHub)!

This is not a telecommuting position, nor are we looking for any other businesses wanting to sub-contract.
