Full Stack Developer

Ends 2 Mar 2018 (in 3 months)

Live your Rich Life from anywhere.  100% remote position.  
The Giant Hairy Problem You'll Be Solving
The best of all worlds: a development role in a startup environment without the risk of small organizations or the inflexibility of large ones.
We're looking for a seasoned full stack developer to join our team to create services that power incredible user experiences.
This could be a dream position for the right person. Read the description below to see if it's what you've been looking for and find out how to apply.
You'll Work On Projects Like
A Full Stack Developer at IWT is able to work in all parts of an application from backend services to middle tier and the front-end app. You will be developing new solutions to complex problems and work within our existing frameworks, while keeping an open mind to potential process improvements and scalability.
You will be a critical member of the engineering team; with that comes the responsibility of mentoring team members and establishing architectural principles and design patterns. You'll be translating functional requirements into functional applications. You'll be doing more than just bug hunting; you'll be proactively identifying bottlenecks and devising solutions to them.
You will also be interfacing with IWT's own home-grown solutions as well as with several third party API's. Expect to be immediately thrown into the deep end and getting into the code right away.
Compensation is commensurate with experience. Perks include health coverage, 401k with match, technology and education stipends, the ability to live anywhere in the US, and work with some of the most interesting people in the world.
What We're Looking For
At IWT we love hard problems that others can't solve, won't solve, or don't even want to try solving.  We want to work with people who love big challenges, too. People who want to be the best they can possibly be and fight every day to make it happen. We call them top performers and we all share the same values:
Obsessed with excellence
No ego
Outstanding communication
We drive results
Learn fast, grow fast
Be weird
If you're a good fit for this opportunity, then you'll have:
Broad Experience: You will be working in every aspect of the stack, from top to bottom in a variety of languages.
Extremely comfortable in PHP and experience with Ruby
Intimately familiar with CakePHP or Rails
Lots of practical experience with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and MySQL
Experience with AWS 
Well rounded DevOps and performance tuning experience
Experience with Salesforce or Marketo is a definite plus
Hands On: You are naturally curious and want to understand how things work. You also aren't afraid to get your hands dirty and don't want to pass things off as "not my job" when issue arise.
Agile: Able to work iteratively and a willingness to change priorities based on changing business dynamics
A vision for the future: A knowledge of industry best practices and an eye toward the future and improving our processes continuously.
Able to work remotely with your own phone, computer and high speed internet access in place.
This is a full-time, 100% remote position. Must be US based.
