About the Opportunity

We’re looking for a Full Stack Engineer to join our team as our third full-time engineering hire. As a Full Stack Engineer at Joshin, you’ll do a little bit of everything, and it’s all in the name of making life a little bit easier for families with special needs and the caregivers providing these families with services. A typical day at Joshin… there’s no such thing as a typical day here! We’re continuously pushing solutions to new problems, rapidly iterating on existing features in use today, dreaming up what we can build tomorrow that will have an even greater impact, and getting our hands dirty wherever work is needed along the way. We’re a small tight-knit, scrappy team, looking to bring on a pragmatic problem solver with an eye for design and experience who puts our customers first and asks for permission later.
