We are looking for a Node.js developer with strong backend experience to join our forward thinking and exciting agency. We are searching for a candidate who is looking to grow and constantly learn and apply new technologies.
Our central goal is to deliver high-quality projects that both our clients and developers can be proud of. Our environment is supportive and friendly and we use a range of progressive open source technologies to fulfill a wide range of client briefs.
The ideal candidate will have a firm foundation in backend web application development with a thirst for keeping up-to-date with modern technologies and platforms.

Exercising creativity and initiative in developing elegant solutions to problems
Working together with our bearded but friendly lead developer and team of back and front-enders
Using a high degree of freedom to select the best libraries and techniques to achieve project goals
