The Shelf is a fast-growing, profitable, big-data marketing startup with well known clients across the world (eos, Famous Footwear, Pepsi, Neutrogena, Evenflo, Regis, Lowes… just to name a few).
We’re looking for a remote, full stack developer to join our team of 18. Currently we have a very small and highly talented development team (two full-time developers), leaving a lot of room for growth, learning, and ownership.
As a full-stack developer working on this project you’ll be hands-on with all three areas of the site. To give you a better idea of what you’ll be working on… we’re currently wrapping up our V1 of the product and getting ready to start on V2, so this is a really exciting time to join. The start date for V2 is set for the beginning of August. By joining at this time, you’ll have ownership over certain areas of the product. You’ll be able to write your own code, rather than fixing up years worth of older code. Yay!
Our current stack is Angular/React and Python/Django. We use ElasticSearch for implementing fast, text-based searches. Our application is deployed on Heroku and we use Github issues with ZenHub to manage tasks. Our back-end tasks are implemented using standard RabbitMQ server and celery. We currently use around 16 back-end servers. We use PostgreSQL to store 2TB of data.
At a high level, we’re looking for an engineer who has the following qualities:
You’ll work closely with our two engineers and our two co-founders on a day-to-day basis. Once on-boarded, you’ll have the opportunity to work on critical features. Once solved, you’ll be able to see your code live on production and being used by hundreds of our clients
