Backbone is a product development platform that empowers brands to make products smarter, faster, and at scale. We believe the future of consumer brands is digital. We provide the platform that empowers brands to innovate, design and develop products at digital speed.
We’re looking for a talented software developer to help grow our product development team. As a member of a small team, you’ll get exposed to a lot – from front-end, back-end, databases, DevOps and both manual and automated QA.
The ideal candidate will have some full-stack development understanding, but expertise in back-end development. You understand the different moving parts and how they come together. You’re proud of production software projects you’ve worked on, and problems you’ve solved.
Backbone has a positive, diverse, and supportive culture—we look for people who are curious, inventive, and work to be a little better every single day. In our work together we aim to be smart, humble, hardworking and, above all, collaborative. We have a fun and fast-growing team based out of Boulder, CO, and are looking for energetic and experienced team members to help us grow.
