ForMotiv Background


It has probably never occurred to you, but as the Internet shifted virtually every business model online, one key element of human behavior was lost - reading someone's body language.

Using modern technologies for data science, AI and ML, we analyze behavioral cues collected while users engage with web applications to classify and predict end-user intent. ForMotiv is helping leading financial service companies to improve online experiences as well as reduce risk and fraud. ForMotiv is a real-time behavioral intelligence tool that helps companies fill in the missing link when it comes to their customer data - their digital body language.

Job Description

We’re looking for energetic javascript experts and technology polyglots that enjoy challenging problems and value the opportunity to work with industry experts and push themselves to new heights.  This is a rare opportunity to get in on the ground-floor of a rapidly growing international startup. You will work on development of our Front-End behavioral collection component and customer implementations/integrations. You will work directly with the technology, data science, and management teams.

Our stack includes customer embedded javascript, Java and Python APIs and Java web applications deployed on Amazon Web Services. Data science services use R and Python code and notebooks.


  • Work with customers to understand their web applications, and facilitate integration of ForMotiv’s Behavioral collection component into those applications.  Assist customers in troubleshooting and problem resolution.
  • As part of the Engineering Team, provide feature development and bug resolution for our javascript library and related components.
  • Assist with the presales and post-sales processes including building world-class demos
  • Evaluate and test new technologies to enhance ForMotiv’s offerings
  • Provide performance and reliability testing


  • 4 year computer science or related degree (highly recommended, but may be waived with relevant experience)
  • 2+ years as a javascript software developer at a reputable company with references
  • Strong mathematics and problem-solving skills
  • Javascript experience - with multiple front-end frameworks. Be prepared to show examples of different frameworks, such as Angular, ReactJS, Vue.js, Ember, Meteor, etc.)
  • Machine Learning or Data Science experience (not required but a plus)
  • MongoDB experience (not required but a plus)
  • Customer-facing experience (not required but a plus)
  • Self-motivated, proactive, organized and a willingness to learn (and be taught)
  • You’re comfortable in a fast-paced, unstructured environment
  • Eagerness to wear multiple hats and lend a hand to your teammates when called upon


  • Stock options with vested interest in growing the business
  • Competitive health benefits
  • Ground floor access to venture-backed technology start-up with global presence
  • The chance to contribute to our growing culture and join a winning team
  • Grow and advance in any number of potential roles including management

The 5 Cultural Characteristics we look for:

  • Curiosity: You look at each day as an opportunity to learn something new, not as an opportunity to prove what you already know.
  • Work ethic: You look at each day as an opportunity to get better for yourself and your team
  • Empathy: You care how others feel around you, and you have the capacity to understand their points of view.
  • Teachable: You know your strengths and weaknesses and you aren’t afraid to ask for help; everybody you work with is smarter than you about something; willing to learn from everybody and willing to accept that you can always improve the way YOU work.
  • Integrity: You have the judgment to do the right thing even when it’s not in your own self interest
