CAREERS

Experienced Full Stack Web Developer

Who are you?

You're an Experienced Full Stack Web Developer. New grads are awesome, and we're planning on hiring a lot of them in the future, but not for this specific role. Please apply only if you consider yourself to be well practiced in a professional setting in our (or a similar JavaScript-based) stack.

Who are we?

We're Boardera! We think you'll love it here, because we love it here. We're a small and passionate team and we pride ourselves on our inclusive and transparent work environment. Want to be part of a start-up just as it's taking off? Want your voice to be heard and your work to have a direct impact on making users happy and transforming an industry? Tired of being a small part of a giant machine? This might be the opportunity for you! 

What's the opportunity?

The successful applicant will participate in a unique and exciting phase of growth. Operating for just over a year, we are a true start-up. We launched our platform last Summer, but, like an iceberg, the bulk of what we have to offer is lurking beneath the surface. Unlike an iceberg, it's dropping on an unsuspecting public this year, and we couldn’t be more excited. We’re looking for another amazing developer to join our team and grow with us.

Our salary ranges are based on industry averages. We may not keep pace with some of the larger shops, but we make up for it via our employee profit sharing program, in which you will benefit directly from our future success as it's happening (instead of needing to wait for a nebulous "event", like with stocks/options). 

Can the position be remote?

Yes! We are a fully remote-enabled team and will continue to operate as a hybrid office after the world gets back to normal. That means we are accepting applications from individuals located anywhere. However, at this time, we have a strong preference to operate within Western hemisphere timezones. We also plan to get everyone together in one place to collaborate and get to know one another for a few days every 2-3 months (once conditions allow). Currently, our headquarters are in Kitchener, ON, Canada. 

What will I be doing? 

The successful applicant will be responsible for designing and developing awesome features in our platform from end-to-end. When we say “Full Stack”, we mean it - this role will include everything necessary to deliver great software. We’re looking for self-starters who are excited to learn new things. We want someone who approaches work holistically, owns outcomes (not just tasks), and gets excited about delivering maximum value through their work.
