Simplicity is the name of the game. Don’t overcomplicate things. Grow wisely. Stay agile. Avoid debt. Eliminate bureaucracy. While complexity will grow over time, it’s important it doesn’t cripple us.
Everyone who joins our team is responsible for creating value, regardless of their role. But that looks a little bit different for everybody. As a backend software developer, you will be responsible to:
We’re looking for lifelong learners and product geeks dedicated to the art and science of backend development and designing delightful RESTful APIs. We do not look for any specific formal education, as long as you can demonstrate the passion and experience we are searching for. You will feel right at home with us if you:
Unfortunately, we are unable to sponsor visa or citizenship opportunities at this time.
Candidates must be able to work during US time zones.
Last but certainly not least, it should be noted that Journeyage’s intent is to build an uncommonly diverse and inclusive environment so we can advance our purpose to love and learn with one another. We know this is not only the right thing to do, it’s the smart thing to do. That means we’re actively looking for people who think differently than us, have a different background than us, and look differently than us.
Research shows that while, on average, men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other marginalized folks tend to only apply when they check every box. So if you think you have what it takes, but don’t necessarily meet every single point on the job description, please still get in touch. We’d love to have a chat and see if you could be a great fit.
In other words, if you typically feel underrepresented in technology companies like ours, you’re not only invited to apply, we urge you to apply.
We’re building an exceptional team of product thinkers and developers dedicated to helping organizations accomplish their purpose through delivering personalized training at scale. Our product team of designers and engineers are tasked with translating user wants and needs into code and pixels that delight users and customers all around the world.
As a growing startup, our product team is offered huge creative freedom in how to implement solutions that serve the needs of our users quickly and efficiently, relying more upon iterative improvement than one-and-done perfection. Simultaneously, every person on this team is responsible for helping iterate upon the environment and systems that contribute toward developing a scalable culture fueled by personal safety, positive energy, relentless creativity, and unparalleled teamwork.
This team reports up to Journeyage’s Chief Technology Wayfinder, who leads our product management, engineering, and devops functions. However, as a member of the product team, you’ll not only work closely with other inspiring product designers, thinkers, and engineers, but also have the opportunity to learn from our growing team of legendary customer success guides, learning experience designers, sales professionals, and marketing geniuses. While each person plays an individual role, we are unified in how we move forward together.
Though we are in the business of learning experience personalization and on a mission to deliver irreplaceable training, the cause that gets us out of bed every morning is co-creating the world’s most transformative workplace experiences. That infinite pursuit starts with the workplace experience we create for our own employees, whether that’s in Phoenix, Guadalajara, Paris, or Timbuktu.
In fact, according to anonymous surveys conducted every month since our hiring growth began in late 2019, 100% of our employees recommend Journeyage as an exceptional place to work. We keep this third-party reported figure updated. We aren’t perfect by any means, but we’re on the journey to improve each and every day.
Don’t take our word for it, though. Here’s what one of our sales team members has to say about working for Journeyage: “I have a goal, and I’m not joking when I say it: I want to work for Journeyage for the rest of my life. There’s nowhere else I could imagine working that has been as personally and professionally meaningful. The culture we have here may sound like a fairytale, but it’s not. It’s real, and I’m all-in for the long haul.”
While we could list many other reasons we recommend Journeyage, feel free to learn more about our unique culture before you apply from one of our team members, because we hire for culture-fit before experience, competency, or how good your resume looks. Given our passion for personalization, we’d much rather craft a role built around the right person than we would fit someone into a one size fits all job.
If you’ve made it this far and remain interested, we assume you’re exactly the right type of person to apply for this opportunity. We won’t make the application process hard. All you have to do is submit your LinkedIn profile address, current email address, a phone number we can reach you at, and a brief message as to why you’re interested in this role based on what you’ve learned about it here. A link to your GitHub profile is an appreciated bonus.
One last word of wisdom: since we’re all about personalization, save the generic cut-and-paste form letters for somebody else.
We strive to respond within two weeks to all applicants, even if we choose not to move forward. Whatever the outcome, we wish you nothing but the best in your own journey and thank you for proving your interest in working with us. Onward.
We’re honored that you’re interested in working with us. Here’s what to expect as you explore doing so.
