Developer

Reports to: VP of Development

Developers at Launch Scout are consultants as much as hands-on coders. Developers play a significant role in not only building client apps but helping our clients figure out what to build. Developers work closely with designers, collaborating on overall look, feel, usability and flow, as well as code.

Launch Scout developers have the power to push for new ideas and help clients understand the value of the work we’re delivering. They’re given great autonomy. Our developers work on small teams, typically with another developer, a designer and the client.

Traits of a Launch Scout Developer

  • Look forward to digging in and consulting with clients. Helping them identify business problems and figuring out how to solve them with technology and agile work processes.
  • Love closely collaborating with developers, designers, and clients.
  • Have a high level of competence with Ruby, Elixir, and/or JavaScript, as well as an interest in learning emerging technologies.
  • Easily cross the boundaries between front and back-end development.
  • Have experience shipping projects to production, as well as fine-tuning and maintaining those apps.
  • Embrace an agile development process, open source tools and continuous improvement project management tools like Kanban.
