  • Expand and evolve our SaaS, social media publishing and analytics platform, that empowers thousands of news publishers worldwide
  • Help grow our emerging advertising and tech-enabled services business
  • Write code that integrates social media APIs (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, TikTok, etc) and other third-parties

Skills & Requirements

We’re looking for someone who can comfortably work on whole features/stories independently, covering both front-end and back-end concerns. One day you might take a UX design and turn it into a working part of a React-based app and the next day you might add NodeJs endpoints to the serverless API to support the new functionality.

Required skills/experience:

  • Strong understanding of modern JavaScript and NodeJs concepts
  • 3+ years web app development experience
  • 2+ years of NodeJs and Javascript (including a solid grasp of ES6)

  • Webpack, HTML, CSS, SASS/LESS, Babel
  • Fluency in Git, GitHub and source code management concepts

Bonus skills/experience:

  • Social Media APIs
  • Serverless.com framework
  • React Native, or other mobile development
  • Previous remote work experience

Working Remote:

  • This is a 100% remote position, communication and self-direction are essential
  • You’ll need a dedicated workspace with a door and good webcam
  • You must have a reliable high-speed internet connection (collaboration requires bandwidth)

This is just scratching the surface -- we’re a fun team of people who love what we do! If this sounds good so far then reach out and we’ll share more details.
