Like most start-ups, we have BIG dreams and goals.  We have things to build that are game changing for connecting people to photographic memories from their travels around the world. While we have done an exceptional job of gluing 3rd party pieces together to make it all work, we need a Full Stack developer who can work with the systems we have in place, make a plan to move us from 3rd party tooling and create the roadmap, architecture and systems needed to build out our vision of being the Airbnb of travel photography

Here’s thing, you don’t have to know how to do it all right this second. You do have to be hungry to learn, be able to communicate your vision and help us develop ours.   Start by problem solving our current system’s limitations and scale us for unprecedented growth with your creation of proprietary software that will change the way we do business and give our customers the BEST experiences.
