Job Description

As a member of the Software Development team, Back End Developers are responsible for designing, coding, and modifying software applications according to business requirements. Back End Developers are expected to follow team coding standards to write clean and concise code, and to work with QA to isolate and debug issues.

Position Description:

Back End Developers are responsible for building out our API, adding new functionality to the internal ERP our team has built, digging into new and existing AWS technologies, and getting cozy with occasional data modeling and database development. We love clean code, testable code, documented code - you know, the stuff that keeps the lights on. Back End Developers work on a team with other like-minded, forward-thinking devs, and we collaborate in-person, in meetings, and online via Discord. Back End Developers may have experience with other frameworks and languages, but they will be expected to operate daily in PHP, Javascript, and the occasional light sprinkling of SQL.



  • Able to write organized, accessible, and performant code.
  • Experience with PHP/C#/Node/Java/, and a willingness to adopt PHP.
  • Good understanding of data structures, database development, and how ORMs fit in.
  • Familiarity with good design patterns and a distaste for antipatterns.
  • Strong technical and non-technical communication skills.
  • Solid understanding of version control and developer workflows, Git experience specifically a plus.
  • 2+ years of professional back end experience.
  • A desire to contribute to a vibrant, welcoming, and innovative culture.


  • Prodigious PHP experience (or if your name is Taylor Otwell)
  • Experience with Laravel.
  • Experience with PostgreSQL.
  • Experience working with Agile-Scrum methodology.
  • Strong unit testing fundamentals.


  • Flex schedule
  • Work from home options
