We are looking for a Node.js developer with strong backend experience to join our forward thinking and exciting agency. We are searching for a candidate who is looking to grow and constantly learn and apply new technologies.

Our central goal is to deliver high quality projects that both our clients and developers can be proud of.

The ideal candidate will have a firm foundation in backend web application development with a thirst for keeping up-to-date with modern technologies and platforms.

  • Experience with JavaScript frontend frameworks like AngularJS
  • Git-based workflow and deployment

Bonus Experience:

  • The core role is focused on backend development but some full stack experience would be helpful:
  • Angular 2-4 with TypeScript
  • Docker
  • AWS
  • Some rails experience

Work Involved:

The role is primarily focused on development and improving the backend for a single, innovative product targeted at the hospitality industry.

  • Consuming and providing REST-style API services
  • Creating and debugging reliable, unit-tested code
  • Understanding and being involved in requirements gathering
  • Exercising creativity and initiative in developing elegant solutions to problems
  • Working together with our bearded but friendly lead developer and team of back and frontenders
  • Using a high degree of freedom to select the best libraries and techniques to achieve project goals
  • Deploying to Linux environments

Interview Process

We like to start off with a brief friendly chat on the phone. If we’re a good match for each other, the next stage is a face to face meeting at our office. Finally a quick practical: creating a simple demo application (or a guided tour through your github repos together if possible).
