Full-Stack Developer

Skylight is hiring its first Full-Stack Developer. As our first Dev, you’ll learn and explore all the facets of our infrastructure. We process millions of photos per month, and we’re constantly improving our products and exploring new offerings – so you’ll get a chance to learn about both scale and innovation. You can expect lots of mentorship and coaching from our CEO and CTO, both of whom have deep experience in Technology products.

Technology Stack:
Here are some elements of our technology stack, any of which you could jump into on day one (with plenty of support from the person who authored their first drafts):

• A mobile app in React Native with lots of tricky photo-picking, editing, and uploading challenges
• A serverless pipeline in Node that extracts attachments from emails, transforms them, and serializes metadata for downstream consumption
• A Rails JSON API, consumed by a React frontend (and by our hardware devices)
• A high-throughput Go server on Dynamo that handles 1500 requests per second

Each component presents a unique opportunity to experiment, learn, and improve!

This is a great role for someone who is entrepreneurial and passionate about improving technology products. We are a small team, and the right person will have an opportunity to make an enormous impact and rise within the organization.

The right candidate is...
• Love coding!
• Communicate with empathy and patience
• Appreciate both the purist’s and the pragmatist’s perspective
• Be a fast and motivated experiential learner
• Be highly analytical and data-driven
• Thrive in an entrepreneurial environment where you make (most of) the rules

Nice to haves include:
• A background in React, Rails, Go, or Node
• Entrepreneurial experience
• A background in analytics

Benefits of this role include:
• Tremendous autonomy to set the pace and direction of your work
• A great learning opportunity
• Competitive compensation, based on experience
Flexible hours, with ability to work remotely 1-2 days per week if desired
