Lead Web Architect for Software Development Agency (Client facing position)

Thanks so much for checking out our job post.

We are looking to hire a lead architect to take the reigns across our full stack of projects.  You will report directly to the founding partners of the agency, and be responsible for engaging and working across our team of 40+ developers and designers around the world as well engaging directly with our clients at small and large companies across the US.

This is a fully remote position with no set office hours.  The perfect candidate is a 100% self starter and self motivator who knows how to identify what needs to be done and, most importantly, gets the job done.

This is a highly technical role.  If you are not familiar with running commands from terminal, or wouldn't know where to start if someone asked you how to set up a staging server for a WordPress site, this role isn't perfect for you.

The perfect candidate has a deep knowledge across the entire web stack (HTML --> CSS --> Javascript --> NGINX --> PHP) and, although already has good experience with a wide array of technologies, also knows how to quickly and efficiently pick up new things as well. 

Technologies you will use frequently:

  1. WordPress
  2. PHP
  3. Laravel
  4. Vue.js
  5. Vanilla JavaScript (ES6)
  6. Webpack (Laravel Mix)

How To Apply

Please only apply via this application form: https://buildstack.typeform.com/to/N6qZSZ

All applicants will receive a reply within 48 hours.
