We’re hiring in New York City.

Kettle is on the hunt for a(n) Senior Back-End Web Developer in our NYC office who speaks code fluently and can bring ideas to life.

Your task.

We're looking for a full-time Back-end Web Developer (Ruby, Python, or PHP). At Kettle, you'll be building  web applications—everything from interactive experiences to complete websites—for clients ranging from Fortune 100 companies to budding start-ups. We're looking for a versatile developer comfortable with the model-view-controller pattern and flexible enough to work with a variety of modern Web frameworks. You'll be working hand-in-hand with our front-end developers to construct the site's functionality.

We’d like to know that you can: 

  • Build complex, dynamic web applications from prototyping to deployment using modern MVC frameworks and design patterns
  • 4+ years experience in PHP, Python, or Ruby
  • Efficiently integrate and debug third-party APIs
  • Basic Linux system skills and AWS console experience
  • Working knowledge of Docker containers, virtual machines, and automated provisioning
  • HTML, CSS, and JavaScript fundamentals 

The right candidate should also have:

  • An insatiable curiosity for new techniques and a razor-sharp eye for detail
  • A love for programming and eagerness to tackle unique, challenging problems
  • You’re serious about your work, but don’t take yourself too seriously
  • A passion for collaborating with a creative team to build great products

Why it’s an awesome gig:

  • Direct new web projects from scratch. As the lead back-end developer, you will be entrusted with a wide range of responsibilities and be able to rapidly iterate, collaborate, and learn from a large, multidisciplinary team.
  • Choose and use the best tools. Build projects using modern packages, services, and frameworks. You will be given wide autonomy to choose the right tools for the problem.
  • Touch many different clients across industries and needs. Our projects aren’t “one size fits all.” This will let you experiment with new ways of thinking and working to build amazing products.
