The ideal candidate is someone who stays up-to-date with current trends, enjoys the challenges of development, has the passion and drive to push themselves, and are fiercely loyal to finding the best solution; someone with around 1-4 years experience. 

Responsibilities will include (but are not limited to): systems analysis, code creation, testing, build/release technical documentation and customer technical support. They use Laravel and Vue.js as their frameworks of choice and would prefer a developer with experience in these frameworks (or similar MVC and JS frameworks). 

Essential Functions:

  • Help architect and build scalable, responsive and secure web applications and features 
  • Experience in testing and debugging 
  • Implementing third-party APIs (Twilio, Pubmed, and more) 
  • We’re not looking for designers, but if you’re the developer who says “modifying HTML isn’t my job”, it’s not going to work out. 

Skills & Qualifications: 

  • Solid understanding of modern standards for HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript ES6+ 
  • Sass 
  • Composer 
  • NPM/Yarn 
  • Webpack 
  • PHP and Object-Oriented Programming

  • Familiar with at least 1 web UI framework: Vue, React, etc 
  • GIT Workflow / Version Control 
  • Comfortable with system administration of Linux servers 
  • Knowledgeable regarding good database design and proficient in writing SQL queries 
  • Understanding of common attacks (XSS, SQL injections) 
  • Experience with cross-browser development 
  • Ability to learn and pick up new skills quickly 
  • Strong problem-solving skills, effective multi-tasking and time management skills, and the ability to prioritize and juggle multiple projects.

 We seek candidates that can hit the ground running so there is a minimum requirement to quickly assimilate existing environment and become productive. However, support will be provided to address any shortfalls for the right candidate.


Nice to Haves: not required 

  • Experience with Laravel a huge plus. We don’t expect you to code like Jeffery Way, but that would be awesome.

  • Salesforce and/or Veeva 


Education and/or Experience: 
While education and experience are highly valued, we are looking for anyone who shows a desire to learn, solid worth ethics, a positive attitude, and real passion towards all things web. The type of developer we seek has a passion for experimenting with new technologies, prototyping new ideas quickly, and applying what they learn to their own personal projects. Does that sound like you?
