At Align, we focus on aligning companies and people on their journey to success. That’s why we’re here.  The Tech team’s contributions are made designing, building and maintaining Align’s web and mobile applications. Those applications help companies and people plan, set meaningful goals and execute daily to achieve those goals.

Today, Align’s applications are built using HTML, CSS, Typescript/JavaScript on the front end with Microsoft .NET (C#) and Microsoft SQL Server on the back end.  As a user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) developer, you will work on both front-end design and front-end development, you will be responsible for designing the user interface of Align’s web and mobile applications connected to a rich set of web services. You will work closely with a Product Manager and other developers to understand requirements, contribute to application design and then develop a beautiful and functional application. Your designs will often be used by other developers and, when necessary, you’ll work with those developers to transform your designs into Align’s applications. You should have deep experience with design tools, HTML, CSS and Typescript/Javascript. Experience with one or more front-end frameworks such as Vue.js, Angular or React is a plus.
