About SilkStart: SilkStart (silkstart.com) is a small, rapidly growing start-up based in Victoria, BC providing an all-in-one SaaS platform to help member-based associations manage their online presence, members, events and communications. Our goal is to disrupt the association services market by bringing modern, responsive design to an industry that has not yet embraced mobile. SilkStart offers a flexible work environment, provides competitive salaries and employee equity (stock options), meaning you’re a part owner.
The Role: In this start-up role you will have a broad set of responsibilities and directly contribute to the overall success of the company. You will contribute to system architecture, research and analysis, product design, and coding.
What we’re looking for? Are you an experienced and talented Developer? Are you a smart, self-directed, results-oriented individual who thrives in a customer focused start-up environment? Can you operate effectively with incomplete information, and/or ambiguity? Do you want to work somewhere that appreciates your hard work, values your contribution, and lets you do meaningful work? If so, SilkStart has the career you’re seeking.
What you’ll be doing:
Smart. You don’t need a CS degree but you need to be smart. We’re going to expect you to quickly learn a lot of new stuff. We’re also going to give you autonomy on several important areas of our business and expect great work.
Good Attitude. You are willing to roll up your sleeves and do what needs to be done. This is not a ‘that’s not my job’ or ‘I don’t know how to do that’ environment. We’re a small, entrepreneurial team that all pitches in to get the job done.
Great Communicator. You’re comfortable communicating with both the business and tech team and our customers.
Self-Directed. You’re Independently driven, being resourceful to deliver results with minimal direction.
Customer Obsessed. You always think about the customer and how development impacts them.
