Full Stack Back-End Developer

We're looking for a passionate Full-Stack Developer to help build the next generation of the company, a well-funded civic startup disrupting government procurement by aggregating, indexing, analyzing, and otherwise transforming government purchasing data. The client is a Code for America Accelerator company and has an incredible team of seasoned executives and engineers. They work hard but maintain a casual work environment with a strong culture as a tech startup. As a new member, you'll work closely with the senior team members to implement critical pieces of our modern, forward-thinking architecture – learning many new technologies as you touch every part of the application’s source code.

You’ll build new features and products in the web app, from the UI components in the browser to the node services and database structure behind them in modern (ES6+) javascript. The area you focus on is largely up to you - some of the company's developers end up more focused on GUI, others on services, but everyone is good at both.

Note: Please do not apply if you do not meet any of the system requirements listed.
