Would you like to belong to one of the brightest business teams in North America? A tight-knit group of some of the best digital entrepreneurs, coders, and developers on earth. They’re Yoda-smart. They love what they do. And they’re using their genius to make the world a better place. This isn’t just another job — if you’ve got the chops, it’s a chance to change the lives of millions of people.

We know you’ll thrive in our supportive atmosphere. You see, in most workplaces, you can find at least a few caring colleagues, but at AlgaeCal, it’s part of the culture. Every day you’ll be surrounded by some of the most friendliest teammates you’ll ever meet. They’ll help you set ambitious goals. They’ll appreciate your hard work, and they’ll party with you in Mexico! More about that below, but first, here’s who we are…

About Us

At AlgaeCal, we’re driven by a single idea. To end the fear of bone loss. It’s a big mission. In the United States, an estimated 54 million people have crumbling bones. And they’re scared. Scared of snapping a bone. Scared of being forced to quit their favorite hobbies. And worst of all, scared of losing their independence.

The good news? AlgaeCal has the world’s only clinically-backed natural solution to this problem. We help thousands of people say goodbye to fear, frailty, and fractures. If that excites you, you’ll find no better place to continue your career than at AlgaeCal.

We’re growing so quickly that we need a new Full Stack Web Developer to join our team!

About You

If you love working in an Agile Scrum environment, you enjoy juggling multiple projects, and you like variety in your workday, this could be your perfect job. You’ll be using PHP, Javascript, and WordPress a lot, so you’ll need to have black-belt-level skills with those tools. Beyond that? You might be implementing pixel trackers for various ad platforms one day and adding new payment gateways the next.

To crush it in this role, you’ll have 5 years development experience and be brilliant at working in Scrum projects.

Skills You’ll Get To Use

Working in an Agile environment, you’ll get to work on a variety of interesting projects with the latest technology stack. In addition to PHP and Javascript – you’ll also be flexing your VueJS muscle.

Skills you will need:

  • Object Oriented PHP and knowledge of a framework such as Lumen, Slim or CodeIgniter
  • JavaScript (> ES 2016)
  • Experience with a Progressive JS Framework such as VueJS or React
  • Semantic HTML
  • CSS and Sass

Obviously, we’d love you to know your way around html5, css3, sass, webpack, nuxt, bootstrap, slim framework, lumen, git, RESTful, and databases.

We’ve love you have experience in Docker, Google Analytics, E-commerce Systems, Payment Gateways, DevOps, and any Cloud computing platforms… but don’t worry if you don’t – we’ll give you plenty of opportunity to learn these skills.

Qualities You’ll Need

At AlgaeCal we’re going to insist that you have these 3 qualities:

  • You’re humble — you put the team and others’ needs ahead of your own
  • You’re hungry to learn more
  • You’re people smart—in the sense that you’re a great teammate

The truth is, if you don’t have these qualities you won’t last long at AlgaeCal. So if you’re missing one of them, be honest. Save yourself a lot of headaches and skip to a job posting that is a better fit for you.

What Will You Earn?

Let’s agree on salary and vacation once we know what you offer, but our goal is to pay above the market rate for your unique skills.

Other Goodies

  • $2000 flexible employee health benefits package
  • Monthly team events and activities
  • Annual team trip (most recently, Los Cabos, Mexico!) which you are eligible for after one year of employment. This amounts to another week of paid vacation, plus we cover hotel, food, flights and entertainment.
