Job description

We're looking for a person with the right blend of experience in both front-end and back-end development, a love for coding and learning, and the ability to work in a fully-remote environment.  A high-energy person and strong communicator who can join an expert team and work remotely with limited direction. 

The Work:

  • Expand and evolve our social media publishing, management and analytics platform used by thousands of broadcasters worldwide
  • Write code that consumes social media APIs (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc)
  • Work with massive amounts of social data to provide customers with actionable insights
  • Build and improve on our cloud-based serverless microservices architecture

The Environment:

  • 100% remote team
  • Javascript, Serverless / microservices, ReactJs, MongoDB, NodeJs, AWS Lambda
  • Mobile apps built w/ React Native
  • Cloud-based hosted infrastructure (AWS Lambda, Elastic Beanstalk, etc)
  • Slack, Hangouts and other online collaboration tools

The Perks:

  • 100% remote work
  • Competitive pay
  • Comprehensive health, wellness and career benefits package
  • Trust, autonomy, empowerment

This is just scratching the surface -- we're a fun team of people who love what we do! If this sounds good so far then reach out and we'll share the details. 

Skills & Requirements

We're looking for someone who can comfortably work on whole features/stories independently, covering both front-end and back-end concerns. One day you might take a UX design and turn it into a working part of the React app and the next day you might add endpoints to the serverless API to support the new functionality. 

Required skills/experience:

  • Strong understanding of modern JavaScript, SPA and NodeJs concepts
  • 4+ years software development experience
  • 2+ years of NodeJs and Javascript (including a solid grasp of ES6)
  • 2+ year of React experience
  • Document/NoSQL database experience (MongoDB preferred)
  • Webpack, HTML, CSS, SASS/LESS, Babel
  • Fluency in Git, GitHub and source code management concepts

Bonus skills/experience:

  • Social Media APIs (Facebook, Twitter, etc)
  • Serverless.com framework and AWS Lambda experience
  • SOA and Microservices architecture, especially w/ RabbitMQ
  • React-Native experience
  • Previous remote work experience

Working Remote:

  • This is a 100% remote position, communication and self-direction are incredibly important
  • You'll need a dedicated workspace (with a door)
  • You must have a reliable high-speed internet connection (collaboration requires bandwidth)
