You’ll have experience on both front and back end development as well as fluency in the Python and Django. You may also be knowledgeable with PHP, Java, Ruby on Rails, Node, Python, and Go. You have managed and sorted through databases in the past, running queries, and creating metrics dashboards. We like to give you freedom and autonomy to push your projects forward and take an active leadership role in the company.

You’ll be recognized as a key member of our team as you help to shape the future of AppSumo and Briefcase. We treat all of our teammates like adults and trust that when you have something to do, you’ll get it done. To compliment that, if you need to run an errand, hit the gym, met a friend for lunch, for want to work from home, you’re encouraged to. You’ll also have unlimited vacation days to go on adventures, visit friends, explore a new country, or fly home to see family. As for your work environment, you’ll have access to a fully stocked kitchen, bar, and fridge, paid lunches every day, and Friday Happy Hours! Did we mention weekly massages at the office? Yeah, those too!
We also go on two company trips each year with the team. Most recently, this was to a mansion (with a private chef and bartender) in Costa Rica where we ATV’ed, rode horses on the beach, sailed on a catamaran, deep sea fished, and scuba dived.
