We’re looking for several full-stack developers for our growing development team.
Vendorful is written primarily in Elixir and React.js and leverages Elixir’s strong support for real-time interactions. We are dealing with human-driven rather than machine-generated data so scaling challenges are more around optimizing database queries than managing zillions of data points. Given the markets and people we serve, optimizing for usability and making sense of the data that we do collect are of paramount importance.
While we want to add full-stack developers to our team, we should be clear that we don’t expect you to be equally good at backend and frontend code, but strong enough that you can deliver new features and squash bugs. We are far more interested in hiring strong, creative, and enthusiastic developers rather than finding people who check a bunch of boxes. So if there is a language, framework, or other piece of technology in our stack that you don’t know, but are keen to learn, that’s 100% okay with us!
To that end, our existing development team is not just super talented, but also super nice. They are all happy to answer questions, pair program, and spend time helping you ramp up on our code base and any of the technologies that we leverage that are new to you. While our development team began in Lexington, KY, that’s a happy accident. You can work from your current location or gallivant around the world…..
