When you're building a company that will help lead a movement, you need people that are up for the challenge! As a mobile first solution with a manager portal, we need to look amazing, work smoothly and make it easy and simple. We've got a shiny new mobile app and now we need someone to lead the backend framework, API for front-end applications, server management, manage data and 3rd party integrations.

  • Setup a way to get real usage feedback in data flow, server usage and user data feedback to fuel improvements and solve bottlenecks.

This person should be a quick learner, knowledgeable in the latest DB and back-end technology insights, naturally talented in logic and a great sense of data flow, architecture and foresight.
