Senior Full Stack Developer

Baltimore, MD
Most job descriptions fail to give you a really good sense of what it's like to work for a growing startup and a high-performing team. We've put together some notes here which will tell you and show you a little bit about our experience. Our goal with this job description is to share more and more about the Contrast experience. 

Our engineering team has a strong spirit of entrepreneurship. Every member of the team has joined us over our short 4 year history because he/she wants to be part of a high-performing team and go through the startup experience. We look for candidates that share similar goals and beliefs about the work and the team they want to be a part of.

We are a growing group of engineers, designers, product managers and support engineers. This particular team is our largest with 8 developers and 2 UX/Designers.

    • Deploys: our engineers deploy multiple times a day to our AWS infrastructure.
    • On-call rotation: every member of the team, including the VP of Engineering participates in the on-call rotation.
