BACKEND DEVELOPER

Please read and consider this job’s requirements before applying below.

JOB DESCRIPTION

FENIX is looking for a backend developer to cooperatively build and maintain production services at scale. Technically, you have a solid background in data structures, web application development, relational and non-relational databases, cloud services, and modern programming practices with a minimum of 3-5 years of experience.
FENIX is growing and we are looking for a highly-skilled engineer to join our in-house development team, FENIX Labs. As a member of the FENIX Labs team, you will contribute to building and evolving our innovative products. We are looking for a creative thinker who will bring passion and dedication to the team.
The Tech Stack:
• We work with the IonicFramework.com, Vue.js, and Node.js, but we are migrating to web components so that we can be framework agnostic.
• We are championing the server-less stack, and developing highly scalable apps using Firebase and machine-learning on the Google Cloud Platform.
• We use WordPress as a headless CMS, so familiarity with PHP is required.
We love our people and want this to be the best place for them to work. We learn together, grow together, and do work we’re proud of together. As a member of our team, you’ll contribute to the vision and help shape the direction of our products. All of us are at the top of our game — programmers, designers, analysts, and every member of our team is critical to the creation process. If you like working with smart and thoughtful people who genuinely care about the products they build, we are a good fit for you.
We believe the strongest teams are made up of people with diverse backgrounds and experiences, and we are committed to cultivating that diversity here at FENIX. We are ready for the ongoing work that goes into building an inclusive, supportive place for you to do your best work.
