Fullstack/Backend Engineers @Postlight - Remote/NYC

Introductory paragraph

Postlight is seeking Elixir devs interested in building large, ambitious platforms for our clients and for ourselves. We use a variety of languages here—usually the tool that best fits the job—and find ourselves turning to Elixir more and more as we realize how general-purpose and enjoyable the language is. We’re currently in the early stages of a large LiveView project, which when it launches will likely be the highest-profile use of LiveView in production to date.

Company info and history (how you’re using Elixir etc): Postlight is a premier digital services and strategy agency. Large, interesting, and well-known companies come to us to solve the problems they can’t. Our website lists some of our projects (under “Work”), but I personally can say that during my five years at Postlight I’ve worked on a huge variety of projects: everything from building the platform that delivers realtime alerts for New York subway riders to meditation apps to social networks and e-learning platforms. We get to be the heroes that walk into the orgs your friends know and save the day.
