Senior Backend Engineer
Full-time

What's it like to be a Javascript Engineer at Whitespectre?


All our engineers are sharp technical experts with the ability to think like product owners- being able to advocate for code quality as a long term strategic investment while knowing when to adapt a more start-up mentality to deliver rapid business value. They drive architecture and implementation decisions, mentor other engineers, and stay up to date with the latest Javascript techniques and trends as part of the collective Whitespectre Javascript brain trust.Ā 

Whitespectre operates on a fully-modern tech stack- toolset includes Node.js/Next.js/Express, React, Typescript, REST/GraphQL, etc. Working smartly is important to us; automation, dynamic environments spin up with new feature branches and slack bot integrations control our production releases (CI/CD, AWS, Github workflows).

We follow an agile 2-week sprint methodology with Product, UI/UX and Engineering within the team to align closely with business stakeholders and incrementally build and release new functionality.

The majority of our projects involve building greenfield applications and our delivery teams typically own products end to end - your thinking and contribution make a big impact!
