Backend Developer

Quebec (or remote)

We’re developers, and we’ve built a kick*ss shopping cart platform for developers. And now, surprise surprise, we’re looking for a new… developer to add to our tight-knit ranks.

We’re way past the ramen profitability phase. Still, we’re a small, bootstrapped startup, so your tasks will vary. Hence why we’d like to hire a “backend” developer.

However, it’s worth mentioning that the primary thing needed here will be experienced in backend development. Let’s just say we’ll start from there. : )

Oh, and we almost forgot: we’re not hiring cowboy developers.

You’ll need to be responsible for your code and thoroughly test it at all times. You’ll work in a performing development environment, safeguarded by fully automated tests and continuous integration.

Here’s some of the stuff you’ll most likely have to work on with the team:

  • Polishing the product’s backend scaffolding

  • Developing and deploying in production new product features

  • Helping out with customer support

  • Providing technical content for documentation or articles

  • Optimizing cart and dashboard performance

The Snipcart Team

We’ll give you all the training, help, and caffeine you want. But you’ll have to be able to strive on your own. Call a few shots. Take a few risks. In the end, your position will be what you make it. You get the picture.

If you’re up for the task, you’d be working with our product owner, dev team, marketing team, and CEO. They’re good people, promise.
