Developer

Reports to: Development Manager

Purpose

Developers at Gaslight are consultants as much as hands-on coders. Developers play a significant role in not only building client apps but helping our clients figure out what to build. Developers work closely with designers, collaborating on overall look, feel, usability and flow, as well as code.

Gaslight developers have the power to push for new ideas and help clients understand the value of the work we’re delivering. They’re given great autonomy. Our developers work on small teams, typically with another developer, a designer and the client.

We are growing! We are looking to add a member to our team later this year. Unfortunately, we do not have a position open to join us at this very moment. Want to prove us wrong? Tell us why we need you now and not later.

Traits of a Gaslight Developer

  • Look forward to digging in and consulting with clients. Helping them identify business problems and figuring out how to solve them with technology and agile work processes.
  • Love closely collaborating with developers, designers, clients, and sometimes even copywriters.
  • Have a high level of competence with Ruby and JavaScript, as well as an interest in learning emerging technologies like Elixir and Clojure. iOS experience is a plus.
  • Easily cross the boundaries between front- and back-end development.
  • Have experience shipping projects to production, as well as fine-tuning and maintaining those apps.
  • Embrace an agile development process, open source tools and Kanban project management.

Given our hands-on approach and the high value we place on in-person collaboration, we’re only entertaining applicants willing to work full-time in our office. Relocation expenses may be available if you’re moving from out of state.

What to Expect

We may not be able to respond individually to every inquiry. If you seem like a good fit and we're trying to fill a position, we’ll set up a first meeting. We'll dig into the technical details of your work. Be prepared to talk about your past work experiences. We'll ask you to do a short exercise demonstrating your skills. In the mean time, go read about our awesome perks and benefits.

To apply, please send us an email at careers@teamgaslight.com. Tell us why you want to work at Gaslight and anything else you think we should know along with your resume and links to your website and/or Github.
