About The Team
We generally operate with small teams working closely together on a wide variety of complex and interesting projects. Think: Postgres optimization, mobile UI with React, offline-enabled responsive web applications to name a few. Our web stacks today include React, Vue.js, Angular, Rails / Sinatra, Node.js, .NET and we even have system level languages like C/C++ and Go in production. We strongly believe in using the best tool for the problem.
You are always learning. You are always growing. You are always seeking to improve yourself and those around you.
You are a human first, a developer second. You are willing and able to partake in and lead communication with project stakeholders. You should be able to explain technical constraints to both technical and non-technical audiences.

We have offices in beautiful Charlotte, NC and Denver, CO. We believe in work/life balance and downright frown upon overworking yourself. We offer competitive perks including continuing education opportunities, team lunches every Friday, small, dynamic teams, and Open PTO.
We never do the same thing twice. We build business critical applications with the mindset of the lean startup and consumer product world. We tackle problems we don’t always know how to solve. Every day, every project is a new challenge to conquer. You will have the opportunity to push yourself and grow.
