Software Developer

We're a JavaScript shop—all the way down to Node—and we're working on a lot of interesting problems.

Our Lightboard software is something like Slack-meets-Pinterest, with a bit of Intercom thrown in. That means we're dealing with realtime collaboration, notifications, complex interfaces, image manipulation, and a bunch of meaty stuff that we're just starting to figure out.

We are a highly-technical organization with a pragmatic approach to engineering. Our CTO formerly ran a 30-person team of engineers at a top-tier dev shop in Seattle (Substantial) and was on the advisory board of Ada Developers Academy. Our CEO, in addition to being trained by some of the best product minds in Silicon Valley, co-founded Code Fellows and organizes SeattleJS.

Job Details

Lightboard is a young company—we’ve just had our third birthday. We're looking for awesome people to help us figure out how to grow Lightboard over the next five years—and to make it happen.

Our office is in downtown Seattle. We are venture-funded, with veteran agency and startup founders.

Why Lightboard might be a great fit for you:

  • Great customers who love us (read the reviews).
  • Progressive and open workplace with 50/50 gender diversity.
  • Collaborative work environment with focus on growth and development.
  • Transparent culture. No bureaucracy, no secrets.
  • Health and dental benefits.
  • Unlimited-ride ORCA Card.
  • Stock options.

What else? Every team member receives a new Macbook Pro, 4k monitor, and all the fixings. Generous vacation policy, never work on your birthday, team lunches every Friday, and all the LaCroix you can drink.

We prefer on-site, full-time candidates, but are open to other approaches.

To apply for this job, please email [email protected] — tell us a little bit about yourself, projects you've worked on, and a link to your Github.

Oh, and tell us whether GIF has a hard or soft G. Because it's important.
