Mightybytes is hiring

Mightybytes is looking for an experienced full-stack developer to join our talented team of creative problem solvers. If you have 2-3 years of relevant agency experience building websites and digital products using agile methods, please apply.

Description

In this role, you will collaborate with UX designers, developers, content strategists, and product managers to create digital solutions for real-world problems faced by our primarily mission-driven client base. If you enjoy tackling complex business, social, and environmental challenges in a shared setting we would love to hear from you.

Sounds great, I’d like to apply!

Come Work For a B Corp

As a Best for the World Certified B Corporation, we use the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. We offer an environment that supports the triple bottom line of people, planet, and prosperity: competitive salary, great benefits, sustainable office (with living green walls!), mission-aligned clients, and room to grow personally, creatively, and professionally. We imbue the principles of sustainability into everything we do, including the digital products we build, and wholly support the entrepreneurial spirit through many in-office activities, such as product incubation, peer-led learning, and employee-driven creative sessions.

We are striving to build a more diverse workforce. We look for candidates who have a high level of demonstrated comfort with cultural competency. People of color, people with disabilities, veterans, women, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people are encouraged to apply. All applicants will be considered without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, sex, marital or parental status, disability, gender identity or expression, age, or any other basis prohibited by law.

Requirements

We’re looking for someone who is comfortable building and providing training and support for digital products and services developed by Mightybytes. We’re a small team, so you’ll be interacting with clients directly in this position. Mightybytes also highly values collaboration. You’ll fit in here if you enjoy collaborating with team members to understand customer problems and can come up with creative and simple ways to solve them. In addition to client work, you will help us build a culture of learning and continuous improvement on our team.
