We’re looking for smart, passionate Senior Developers who are excited about a huge opportunity to shape the direction and features of our products and disrupt the global trade market. You enjoy learning about and using new technologies and are well versed in the tools you carry in your bag. Our current stack includes custom built PHP (5.3.10 w/ Lithium), MongoDB, Nginx, Memcached and jQuery amongst other technologies. You’ve worked effectively in a small team environment, play well with others, and are comfortable taking the lead in driving the development of a web application that reaches industries worldwide. You know how to keep code modular, reusable, clean and loosely coupled across different platforms (web/mobile) and can plan for scale. Code you wrote yesterday could be released today and if possible you have ‘build-measure-learn’ tattooed somewhere on your body (we’re quite fond of being Lean). You want to work with a small, creative, passionate team of smart individuals who bring joy and balance to their work and aren’t afraid to actually like the people you work with. This role will report directly to the VP of Engineering and you will play an integral part in building out the engineering team. Your opinion and ideas aren’t optional – they’re required and always valued.
