We are looking for an experienced back-end web developer to join our team in building large, complex websites. If you want to work closely with a team who shares your passion for innovation, craftsmanship, and problem solving, please get in touch.

About the Job

Your job as a developer at Fastspot will be to work with a team of strategists, designers, and developers to tackle difficult challenges and make the solutions seem obvious and effortless. We are a team full of interdisciplinary creators. No one at Fastspot has just one responsibility. We all have our specialties, but our true strength comes from involving the whole team in all phases of our work. By combining our talents, our clients get the best of everything we have to offer.

You will be responsible for: Working with designers to convert designs into functional sites; producing well-organized code; reviewing your team members’ code for standards and quality assurance; and making decisions based on best practices and user experience.

The ideal candidate will have talent and creativity, a discerning eye, a strategic mind, a good attitude, and a passion for what we do. We are looking for someone who can speak intelligently about their ideas and decisions and who excels at making those ideas into real, usable, and innovative solutions.

We prefer that you’re local to Baltimore (or could be in the future), but please contact us regardless. We won’t turn down the perfect fit if proximity is the only obstacle. Fastspot will consider candidates seeking remote employment who demonstrate a capacity to excel from a remote location. Candidates who wish to be considered for a full-time distributed position should be prepared to explain how they’ve been effective as a remote employee in the past and give examples of the tools or techniques they have used to stay connected with the on-site culture of their previous employer(s). Unfortunately, we are unable to consider applications from international applicants.

You should be:

  • an excellent communicator;
  • a good teammate;
  • experienced with client-facing communication;
  • proficient at technical writing and project planning;
  • excited and knowledgeable about emerging technologies;
  • motivated to learn new software, methods, and technology;
  • able to prioritize tasks and hit deadlines; and
  • willing to learn from mistakes and ask for help.

Requirements

  • Must have 5+ years of relevant experience (e.g. past or current positions at interactive agencies, work on large websites with complex systems)
  • Skilled at PHP, MySQL, and HTML (JavaScript and CSS are a plus!)
  • Demonstrated experience building large, complex sites with third-party integrations
  • Experience implementing WordPress and/or Drupal builds
  • Portfolio demonstrating your ability to produce well-organized, standards-compliant code

Benefits

Fastspot offers a full benefits package including:

  • competitive salary commensurate with years of experience
  • minimum 120 hours of paid time off
  • flexible schedule and remote workdays when needed
  • generous office closure days around the fall/winter holidays
  • 401(k) with company match

  • free pool and gym membership at office campus at Mill No. 1
