Last Call Media is looking for a backend JavaScript developer with experience building and testing web applications!
The Role
Last Call Media is looking for someone with a passion for building and testing modern, state-of-the-art web applications. We are seeking either a full-time employee or a contract-to-hire arrangement.
The ideal candidate will have experience using NodeJS, Typescript, and Cypress, and backend framework experience (Express, Koa or similar). Continuous Integration/Testing experience (GitHub Actions, CircleCI) would be a bonus, as would frontend experience (React, Vue, Svelte). We are looking for an advocate of best practices and someone who is willing to be opinionated about what they believe in when it comes to building successful programming projects. The ideal candidate will be able to discuss requirements, provide feedback, and eventually develop the final product to specification.
Last Call Media is a fully distributed company, so you can work from anywhere, but we ask that you be able to commit to at least 5 hours of overlap with New York time (ET), Monday through Friday.
What you’ll do:

Work with team members to design and implement automated tests for large, distributed systems.
Work with team members to develop and implement large, distributed systems.
Participate in team and company retrospectives to help define and refine working agreements and processes to help us work more effectively together as a team.
Work with frontend and full-stack developers to define data requirements and interoperability.

What you’ll bring:

A proven track record of leading the delivery of digital products and services that delight customers. Specifically, we’re looking for completed projects that leverage NodeJS, Typescript, and/or Cypress.
*2+ years of similar experience in a digital agency, consultancy, or equivalent setting where you were accountable to several client engagements.
An obvious drive to grow and learn from the highly-skilled team around you.
Experience and/or a desire to work remotely.
Ability to work efficiently, sometimes under tight deadlines

It’d be nice if you also had:

Strong opinions about testing.
Experience implementing Continuous Integration solutions using GitHub Actions, CircleCI, or similar.
Experience with Serverless deployment (the concept, not the framework).
Experience with frontend JavaScript frameworks (eg: React), either as a developer, or working directly with frontend developers.
Experience working on a project integrating many different languages or components.
Understanding of backend performance, and experience optimizing performance, including API call optimization.
General comfort with Linux environments.
Familiarity with Atlassian tools, such as Jira and Confluence.
All of us at LCM pride ourselves on being:
Able to empathize, which helps us understand the needs of the client, the customer, the product, and the team at LCM.
Highly communicative
Able to work independently
Comfortable asking for help
Experienced with communicating directly with clients
Eager and motivated to learn new concepts
A team player in a collaborative environment
A fast learner
