Phoenix Staff, Inc. via Stack Overflow

Austin, TX

Aug 2nd 2018

We are looking for two Node.js specific backend server developers (must have Node.js as well as AWS experience). We like someone who is currently dedicating at least 70% of their time on server work (not full-stack).  

  • Ability to¬†describe architecture, decision points, alternatives, roadmaps
  • Ability to troubleshoot performance issues
  • Strong AWS knowledge
  • Not looking for someone who has very strong opinions on the right way to do things; idealism could be cultural or client-challenge
  • Strong communication skills (will be in front of clients)
  • Building server applications using several different open-source stacks
  • Using containerization systems like Docker or Kubernetes
  • Using BaaS providers like Firebase or Heroku
  • Familiarity with modern front-end development
  • Integrating third-party systems: CRM, CMS, shopping carts, and payments
  • Broad architectural knowledge and experience: serverless, microservices, traditional server-based (monolithic) services
  • System monitoring and security design and implementation

This is for our client in Austin, but the person can work in a remote capacity as long as they work the same hours as the folk in Austin.
