This position is pure programming. You’ll be working on everything from the “nuts and bolts” (e.g. user account management features) to complex, abstract, never-been-done-before features. It’s this latter type of work that requires a senior developer, guru, or “ninja” if you prefer. Often times answers aren’t available at the start, but with your expert help, we’ll turn ideas into reality.
We’re agile, test-driven, and results-focused. That’s not a list of fancy buzzwords, we really practice it: stand-up calls, 100% passing tests, working code delivered every week. We do not spend one month planning and another month implementing; we plan, develop, deploy, and repeat every week.
The work is challenging, but that’s why it’s also fun and rewarding! Plus, our team is small, so you and your work will have a large impact. This is a rare opportunity to start with a great team, on a great project, at a great company with lots of benefits.
Location/Time zone: Worldwide but prefer America time zones
Travel per year: 1 team meeting, usually 1 conference, more if desired
