The role 

As a Senior Full Stack Developer at Inlight, you produce well structured-code that is valid, tested and of a high production standard, and provide technical input to help guide our team and build trust and credibility with our clients. On a typical day, you’ll be driving your own work forward and work closely with our producers on technical planning and decisions, reviewing PRs and assisting other devs with technical questions and bug fixes. You should be able to contribute to new and innovative solutions whilst staying up to date with new technologies by experimenting, learning and improving. 

We work with a number of different technologies to suit the individual challenges faced by our clients. On the back-end, we enjoy using everything from serverless architecture to serving REST and GraphQL APIs using Node.js, to hosted CMS solutions using Craft CMS, MySQL, Docker and Lightsail. On the front-end, we favour React and Next.js, using both JavaScript and TypeScript. We use React Native for app development, as well as Swift and Java for platform specific solutions when required. We value experience with AWS, including Elastic Beanstalk, Cloudfront RDS, DynamoDB, and Lambda, as well as experience using Terraform, CDK and Serverless. Inlight is a Vercel partner, and any experience using Vercel or Next.js will be highly beneficial.
