Senior Full Stack Developer - Environmentally Conscious eComm startup

Location: Los Angeles, CA
Date Posted: 03-23-2018
A fast-growing environmentally conscious eCommerce business is building out their creative, marketing and product teams in Los Angeles. They are focused on their business having a positive impact around the globe, and as such they've donated $1.2MM to their charity partners to help fund sanitation projects in developing countries.

They’re in the process of overhauling the site with an agency, rebuilding it on Magento 2 with some heavy duty integrations. Before they launch the new site they want a brilliant full-stack developer who can ensure the site always stays functional, lead the continuous adaptation and optimization of performance, build out new functionality, manage the front-end developer (and future dev hires!), and build processes to ensure the team stays as efficient and happy as possible. While they’re looking for an experienced PHP/Magento 2 developer, they’re also looking for a great leader and collaborator. Someone who can mentor other developers and work closely with other teams to translate technical solutions into a language that everyone can understand.

You’ll be leading the tech team, reporting to the co-founder, and collaborating closely with people across the company.
