Overview

Are you wanting to use your tech skills to accelerate veganism? 🌎 To make a difference every day, for people’s health, animals, and the planet — working with a passionate vegan team? 🌱 🖖

Are you highly curious, seeking mastery in your skills, and looking to accelerate your career, within a fast-paced mission-driven organization? 🏃

If so, we have a great opportunity for you!

We’re looking for a fellow vegan software developer/engineer to collaborate with our dedicated team (we’re based in Tempe Arizona ☀️, but this role starts as part-time remote): LeafSide is a growing company, offering innovative 100% whole-food plant-based (WFPB, vegan) meal packs. Our mission is to make healthy, nutritionally-optimal ✅, whole-food plant-based eating so easy and enjoyable, that it becomes a societal norm. 💡

In particular, we’re looking for someone passionate about contributing and growing their software development / engineering skills as a full-stack web developer, ideally with at least some education in computer science (e.g. basic algorithms and big-O understanding), and expertise in at least one powerful general language such as Lisp (or Haskell, Erlang, Clojure, Go), along with at least fluency in a “daily use” language like Python or JavaScript.  Our current stack uses WordPress, WooCommerce, PHP, and JavaScript — however we’re technology pragmatists and always looking to improve.

You’d be working in the uncommon context of a growing mission-driven company 🚀, with many opportunities for personal and professional growth.  So if you enjoy daily challenges, can readily organize and prioritize a wide variety of tasks, and are adaptable in a changing environment, please keep reading!

Compensation & Benefits

  • Compensation is market-competitive, and commensurate with experience in software development and engineering.
  • This role will have high autonomy and impact, at a growing company. We’re not looking for a cog in the machine, but someone who can help build the machine(s) to new levels of capability, to fulfill our shared mission.

Qualifications

  • This position is suitable for software professionals with 5+ years of relevant experience.
  • Required experience is in full-stack web development: from SQL data models and schemas, to server-side languages and scripting, to JavaScript / HTML / CSS. Significant experience in WordPress & WooCommerce is required.
  • Interest in, and at least basic knowledge of, software engineering processes and tools, e.g. git version control, test driven development (TDD), code review, etc to ensure long-term quality.
  • Education, minimum requirements: an Associate’s Degree or higher, in CS; or equivalent self-education and work experience.
  • Strong communication skills are important: writing must be consistently clear, while verbal and presentation skills should be at least proficient.
  • The ability to self-manage technical projects and tasks to completion: to learn new knowledge and skills quickly, and recruit/manage other resources as needed.
  • Curiosity and the growth-mindset: Constant learning and improvement is core to our company culture, and is expected of anyone in this role as well.

Responsibilities/Duties

  • Work with senior staff to plan and execute key technical initiatives, directly improving the effectiveness of our ecommerce system, marketing systems, and overall customer experience.

To begin your application, please send us,

  • your resume,
