Not all heroes wear capes

There are a lot of shady characters in the world, but they’re no match for your superior skills. As a Senior Web Developer/Engineer, your superpower is developing websites and applications that help online clients detect fraud in e-commerce transactions. Does this sound like you? If so, a crew to rival the Avengers wants to meet you.

Our client’s superpowered team helps protect companies around the world from fraud by screening more than a billion online transactions annually. Their global reach allows their staff to work from many locations in the US, including CA, FL, LA, MN, NV, NY (excluding New York City and Yonkers), NC, OR, PA, TX, WA, and anywhere in Canada.

Dynamo developers in applicable states and provinces, this group is the real deal when it comes to their compensation package. In addition to a very tidy salary, you’ve got a raft of benefits to keep you healthy after a day of cyber crimefighting. US folks, you’ve got a Safe Harbor 401(k) with employer contributions, and Canucks have a bonus payout at the end of each year that can be used toward retirement savings.

Saving the online world is great, but these altruistic souls go one giant step further by donating over 60% of their profits to charities. No wonder employees report a deep satisfaction with the supportive work culture at this organization — you can bring home the bacon and do good in the universe!

Are you experienced with backend web development? (Mojolicious, Perl, and Go to the front!) Do you have oodles of vanilla JS expertise and an ability to work with a geographically dispersed team? Can you write unit and integration tests for frontend and backend code? Then you may be the Ironman to their Avengers. Don’t be a Dr. Strange-r — send your CV today and let us know why you want to join the team!
