About the Position
We're looking for a great developer to join the team. You will be responsible for handling development on the back end and on the front end. You will work directly with our CTO to plan and build new features for both the website and the mobile apps.

You will be implementing entire features on your own, writing both the backend and frontend code to get it working. You will also be expected to quickly learn and adapt to a variety of technologies-such as additional gems or front end frameworks that we work with.

Candidates should be able to develop clear, clean, and maintainable object oriented code. In addition, the candidate should be familiar with front end development and writing object oriented code in Javascript that will work smoothly with the back end, usually via JSON.

Naturally, in such a small team, it will be crucial that candidates can collaborate well with team members. Strong communication skills and the ability to clearly explain concepts (technical and non-technical) to others are key.
