JavaScript Developer

We're a JavaScript shop—from React 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 grew SeattleJS into one of the largest tech meetups in the PNW.

About Lightboard

We are a no-nonsense design service that delivers quality craftsmanship to major brands like 3M, Autodesk, and CA, as well as innovative younger companies like BloomReach, ExtraHop, and Usermind.

We believe the traditional agency model is fundamentally broken. Clients don't need dedicated creative agencies anymore—they've developed their own strategy and just need high-quality design to bring it to life, quickly and efficiently.

And that's what Lightboard does.
