Description

At Packlane, we help brands create impactful custom packaging -- and we need you to create the powerful code that makes it all possible. In fact, we’d be OK with you wearing a brightly colored cape at your desk, because you have X-ray vision for detecting bugs and a utility belt full of tools to eradicate them. As the ideal candidate, you understand that inventive and stable software is essential to the continued prosperity of our business — and also result in web experiences more forceful than a locomotive.


Consider Packlane a unique challenge - you’ll be in charge of code that allows people with a range of design knowledge (from novice to expert craftsman) to create a product that truly helps them tell their business’s brand story. It’s a big job, but the engineer we’re looking for will be excited to work on a career-defining start-up that’s pioneering a new approach to designing and manufacturing packaging. Join our team as a software engineer and put your super-skills to work.


What You'll Do:

  • Ideate. Create. Innovate. Help our small (but ultra-productive!) team build new and wonderful products.
  • Set up and manage development, staging and production environments.
  • Build file processing pipelines that are always faster than a speeding bullet.
  • Utilize continuous integration to keep the bugs out.
  • Develop and maintain internal API’s, data pipelines, and infrastructure to streamline the ordering and manufacturing process.
  • Bend steel with your bare hands (optional).

Requirements

  • Experience with Phoenix, Elixir, Erlang, MongoDB, and Javascript (ES6)
  • An easy-to-work-with attitude, well-organized and highly self-motivated
  • Reliable. Accountable. Dependable. And all the other good -ables. You know what they are.
  • Strong work ethic and a healthy obsession with learning new things.

Benefits

What You'll Love About Packlane:

  • A chance to try new technologies - Packlane is an opportunity to cut your teeth on a novel technology stack, including innovative development frameworks and cutting-edge functional languages.
  • We’re a small team - You’ll be one of few, which means you’ll have a real chance to make an impact. Expect (and hopefully enjoy!) a lot of control and influence over product decisions and prioritization.
  • You’ll help build our future - We’ve got a lot of ambitious projects in the works, from building manufacturing infrastructure from the ground up, to implementing robust order management systems that orchestrate an intricate production flow, and you’ll be at the forefront of it all.
  • Flexibility - We’re an international team who appreciates the freedom to work remotely/from home when we need to, and we value getting everyone together in-person for the occasional company retreat.
