Senior Software Developer PHP node.JS JavaScript, High-Transaction Platform


Our Client is a highly profitable, cutting-edge Web Technology Company headquartered steps from the beach near La Jolla, CA. They are building high-transaction Machine Learning, Lead Gen, and Personalization Tools and are looking for a solid Senior Full Stack Software Developer to join their growing team.

They were recently named by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America, so this is a small but highly stable organization. Youll be developing LAMP/MEAN/MERN code for applications that run on some of the most trafficked sites on the Web.

Their Executive Team is comprised of experienced leaders with major startup and high-growth successes in their past, so they know how to create a supportive, non-political, and productive atmosphere.

Most of the code will be in PHP, JavaScript, and NodeJS, which is why those languages must be part of your core expertise. However, they are constantly evolving, and youll also write code in several languages, i.e.; GoLang, TypeScript, Ruby, HTML, CSS, etc. Picking up another programming language should be second nature because you have done it throughout your career.

Duties Include:

  • Constantly learning innovative technologies to stay on the cutting edge of a rapidly changing industry
  • Develop a whole-system view of their business and systems and put it to use by designing and creating major components to help them grow in features and capacity.
  • Mentor and lead junior developers.
  • Utilize best practices because you have used them to solve problems in the full-cycle development process, which you understand thoroughly.

To apply, email a resume for confidential review to Kanani Breckenridge at [email protected]  


  • Must have 5+ years of experience architecting major components or whole applications for highly-scalable cloud or web-based applications using PHP and/or JavaScript, and Node.JS.
  • Preference for full stack, but if youre highly specialized in front or backend development that works too.
  • Theoretical and practical knowledge of best practices, design patterns, and algorithms.
  • Expert-level, current experience with some combination of other tech such as Go, Ruby, HTML/CSS, MySQL/PostgreSQL, Angular and/or React.
  • Experience with AWS or other cloud solution
  • Must be able to work well in an open-office environment where you will be expected to contribute to both highly-charged technical discussions and good-natured banter.

Desired Skills:

  • Familiarity with web frameworks (Laravel, CodeIgniter, Symphony, Django, Rails, Express, Meteor, etc.)
  • Git and GitHub (or similar)
  • Designing, implementing, and consuming RESTful and SOAP-based APIs
  • Superior analytical ability as demonstrated by a scientific/engineering degree or equivalent experience
  • Security-conscious design and coding skills
  • Experience operating in and optimizing your code for a high-volume and high-transaction environment
  • Experience with online advertising technology, bidding, auction, predictive analytics, and/or programmatic buying solutions is highly preferred.
  • AWS: Redshift, EC2, Kinesis, Elastic Beanstalk, ELBs, auto-scaling
  • Docker: containers, deployments, and DevOps environments
  • Test-driven development or creating automated unit tests

Educational Requirements:

    • BS Degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, or other related discipline is not required, but highly preferred.

SALARY: $110,000 - $135,000 DOE

Perks & Benefits:

  • Company provides full health, vision, and dental benefits
  • Generous and performance-based bonuses and raises
  • Matching 401K
  • Flexible vacation policy (take as needed), plus ten paid company-wide holidays
  • Informal, flexible, and high-energy work environment with super smart people and a transparent and engaged executive team.
  • Kitchen stocked with snacks and drinks, located steps away from the beach, gyms, and lots of restaurants within walking distance.
