NOW HIRING: Lead Full Stack Developer

Company: Blackthorn
Website: https://www.blackthorn.io
Headquarters: New York, United States

Location: Remote, on 100% of EST hours
Report to: CTO

Description

Blackthorn is looking for a full stack dev to set standards for our team. You’ll be sharing this with our CTO, dividing up his responsibilities. You’ll be setting standards for four other devs with a growing team.

The position requires above average attention to details, concern for the exact correctness of work, and a strong commitment to tasks completed on time. You will take work seriously, have a strong sense of duty, and discipline. A somewhat faster-than-average pace will be the norm for this position. Detailed, specialized work is the major focus.

The position will provide security in a stable work environment, allowing you to plan for, focus on and complete tasks on hand. When changes in the nature of the work occur, you will receive direction, training and support. The position will generally be task oriented, requiring you to have a conservative, careful, and cautious approach to work.

You’re a tinkerer. You’re a specialist. You don’t classify yourself as an expert in any one language. You have a personal, public repo of projects you’ve tested just because you enjoy it. You prefer writing code 90% of your day. You’ll make magic happen with our Events app.

You’re someone who’ll try to do something even if it doesn’t make sense all for the sake of seeing if it breaks something.

Role Brief

  • Write and review full stack code (Angular, React, Node, Mongo, and a lot more)
  • Set standards for the team
  • Write and review internal documentation

Why is our work important

Our apps provide our customers what they’re looking for with Events and Payments without being hard to set up. Most apps in our space take weeks to implement. Our apps take hours and they work more flexibly, achieving significantly more functionality than our competitors’.

Trajectory

IC (individual Contributor) or Management. We’re at the precipice of the classic SaaS hockey stick growth chart and are now starting to scale, so those who produce will be able to define their own path. We deliver a bigger scope of your responsibilities then larger companies and your impact will be directly quantifiable to the success of the company and our customers.

Onboarding Process

You’ll work with our internal teams to learn our stack and vision over the course of many months, but you will be expected to begin contributing within a few days.

What the job will bring you

A deep sense of satisfaction. A chance to continuously learn, be challenged, and deliver functionality to customers who crave it. Generally speaking, we deliver what’s most popularly requested to fill needs not filled by other apps in the marketplace, in a way that we think will provide the best UX. And we love our team. Meaningful work and meaningful relationship is why we are here.
