We have a remote-first culture, and this position can be based anywhere. We encourage you to work in the way that best suits you. The company is led by a software architect (the founder actually codes), so you'll never feel like a cog in the machine. Everyone has the chance to make decisions that steer the company as a whole.
While we are technology agnostic and believe in using the right tools for a given challenge, we are experts in cutting-edge frameworks and platforms, such as Flutter/Dart, Google Cloud Platform/AWS/Kubernetes, Python/Django, and Terraform, to name very a few. This is a full-time position.
This is a full-time position reporting to the Chief Technology Officer. For this role, we are considering candidates who are remote-based.
