About our client:
They are smart workspace for accounting teams, where they can manage all of their people, projects, and files from the same place.
Accounting teams are responsible for handling their company's most confidential information, but are often left with tools from either 1999 (Excel, email, and Word) or 2009 (Dropbox, Box, etc.)…. They are here to change that, helping users focus on delivering results, not folder permissions.

What we’re looking for:
We are looking for a Backend Developer to drive product development as they scale relationships with our enterprise customers. As a senior engineer on the team, you’ll play a key role in delivering an unparalleled customer experience.

But before worrying about the technical aspects of the job, they want a good teammate. It always starts with a great team. They will constantly be pushing you outside of your comfort zone because that's where the magic happens. And when you're outside your comfort zone you, will stumble and skin your knee. That's where the team comes in - the safety net to help catch you and get you back on your feet.
