Job description
Third Light is hiring a back-end developer, either a seasoned Go developer or a back-end developer looking to cross-train to Go.

You may work remotely as your full-time arrangement, joining a team that already includes remote workers.

This is about delivering sophisticated new application-level capabilities for our state-of-the-art software service that helps companies manage and share their digital media files easily – features that will have immediate positive impact for our global user base.

We're a small and expanding software development team, building an enterprise application with a highly-polished UI, using the very best and latest techniques. We employ an iterative, design-led process where everyone on the team gets a say. We're agile and manage our work using a gentle Kanban process with daily stand-ups and we encourage a lightweight, productive approach to development.

Our product is a JavaScript application loosely-coupled to a back end built on Go microservices and legacy PHP. We use microservices for all new features and Go is our chosen language to do this. In parallel we are migrating our older codebase to Go microservices.

Your opinion and expertise will be valued from day one.
