We make elegant iOS-based photo booths connected to peripherals like printers, DSLR cameras, and LEDs. It's all powered on the backend by a Node.js API, MongoDB database, and several microservices (also written in Node).

If you are a kind, respectful, and thoughtful Node.js developer who wants to focus on building high-quality APIs that serve data and process images and videos, we're looking for you!

You'll be working on a small team of backend developers, collaborating with other development teams, and architecting and implementing software that's so good that our clients don't even notice it exists.

You'd be working in a collaborative, remote-first environment, but we respect the need for independent and heads-down deep work, so we don't have a lot of meetings or bureaucracy. If you are looking for a workplace that respects you as a person, and will both expect and help you to perform at your best, we are the place for you!

  • Collaborate with other staff to architect new features that make our clients super happy.
  • If you have infrastructure, CI, DBA, or sysadmin experience, you would get to do that sometimes too.
