At Lightfire we develop innovative web applications and we are looking to expand our team with an individual who is passionate about using new technologies, and building quality code.
This position will require you to develop complex web applications from scratch and sometimes update existing platforms; this can include everything from front-end AJAX implementations, to back-end controller/model logic and database design. We do our best to assign projects to developers based on their interests: i.e. a front-end heavy project will be given to a developer who likes working with jQuery, or an iPhone app will be given to a developer who wants to learn iOS development.
A typical project environment includes C# MVC, jQuery and SQL Server. In some cases we use Orchard, LESS, Twitter Bootstrap, jQuery UI (+mobile) and a number of other technologies - we are always open to change and look to find the right tool for each job.
What you'll get:
Individually tailored compensation packages that are comprised of salary, bonus and potentially equity - We are all in this together
Free drinks / snacks / late dinners - Because you should never be hungry!
Flexible hours - We work around your schedule
Free research credits - you buy a technology book? We pay for it!
Equipment - The latest equipment and tools: Apple or MS - up to you
