We’re looking to add some experienced talent to our team to help us get there.

This position will be an integral part of a small team developing at a sustainable pace. We have a casual (shorts and t-shirts), open (no cubes here), non-political environment.

• Able to identify and communicate using common design patterns.
• Able to distinguish between and implement unit, functional, and acceptance tests.
• Able to select and create efficient algorithms and data structures based on sound computer science principles and modern software engineering techniques (this probably requires a CS degree to learn).
