Description: Shiftboard is looking for several senior developers to join our team. We love creating and extending back-end systems that support our Software as a Service platform for shift-based workforce scheduling and management, as well as extending our API and building integrations to other systems that extend our capabilities, ranging from IVR platforms to payroll systems to custom volunteer management systems.

You will be part of a growing team working on enhancing our product by adding new features that will drive our continued growth. You will be providing APIs that will be used by our front-end and mobile developers as well as directly by our customers and integration partners. You will be recommending and implementing the technology to achieve our product goals.

We are a multi-language shop that strives to use the right tools for the job at hand. We are currently using Perl, Python, and Ruby. As we continue our transition to a service-oriented architecture we are considering the deployment of Go, node.js, Rust, and others to ensure we are using the right tools and best practices available. We are not looking for a jack-of-all-trades to work in every language under the sun, but we're also not looking to consolidate on a single stack and become a ______ shop.

If you're looking to create scalable, reliable platforms while leveraging your skills and learning new technologies, this is the position for you.

Passion for evaluating new tech & determining potential benefits and applications
