About this position

Are you a performance-driven developer who is critical of the tools you use?

Our approach to development

  • We believe in tools that help get the job done. We don't believe in fighting tools and configurations.
  • The cloud offers plenty of significant cost efficiencies, scalability, and mobility opportunities. It also has a lot of new and exciting features. We evaluate and allocate resources to stay up to date. But we don't let the shiny distract us from our work.
  • PHP with Craft CMS and React by Typescript is our go-to. However, we are much more. Come talk to us to find out!
  • Single line heroes need not apply! Instead, we take the approach that code should be well documented and legible. Variable names have a purpose and are descriptive. Ternary operators are not abused. You won't be the only one working on a codebase - let's be friendly to the rest of the team.

    • Work with a team of on-site and near-shore developers
    • Foster a highly collaborative team environment

    • Communicate effectively with clients and internal teams
    • Leverage and integrate data from various back-end services and databases
