Headquarters: Chicago, IL

ABOUT BITOVI:  Bitovi helps companies create better web applications.  

We have a track record of designing and building high-profile and amazing web applications through our active Consulting practice.  Our apps are built with tests, full docs and a deployment process in place. We created the open source tools powering the applications we build. 

Bitovi has been a pioneer in producing advanced JavaScript frameworks and tools for almost a decade. We develop and maintain several open source products such as CanJS, DoneJS, and StealJS to name a few.  
Our team is comprised of about 30ish developers and designers located around the US, Canada, South America, and the UK. This is a remote, full-time position.  Due to travel requirements, at this time we are seeking candidates in the US or Canada who are willing and able to travel.  Travel averages approximately 1 week every 6-8 weeks.
Our article, Hello Potential Bitovian sums it up very well (NOTE: a good short read for interested candidates!)
