Back-End Web Developer


The Rundown


You’re a problem solver who delivers answers in clean, well-structured code. You’re a lifelong learner of custom programming who feels at home with PHP and builds in Drupal, Magento, or Wordpress. You can look at a design comp and make it come to life. Your senior superlative was “Most Likely to Succeed,” “Most Dependable,” or “Shiniest Braces” (hey, we don’t judge). For you, a task isn’t a problem, it’s an opportunity. You’re looking for something new and you’re about to find it.


We’re a collaborative, enthusiastic, creative, kooky bunch who thrive on effectiveness, results, and cold beer. From local to international, we partner with clients in the sports, arts, entertainment, education, destination, and non-profit industries and the typical client relationship is retained and well-maintained. We’re looking for the next Da Vinci of code, a Senior Developer who can take the basics and make the next award-winning project. We value passion above all; candidates must want to innovate, must be a team-player, and must leave ambivalence at the door.

The Perks:

You know the spiel: we offer medical, dental, and disability coverage, a retirement plan with company matching, paid time off, and the other standards. Here’s what sets us apart: education stipends and continued growth opportunities, wicked company events, paid parking at our downtown office, casual (and dog-friendly!) working environment, and more.
