With a fast-prototyping approach to a variety of projects, we’d love your help building a strong foundation.
Who we are
Planetary is a New York City-based digital product studio where happiness, empathy, and exploration are our core values. We want to inspire our clients and build products that will make them (and their customers) more productive and impactful in the industries they represent. We began as a remote team and, as such, have a relaxed, smart work environment with autonomy over your time, flexible hours, a virtual workspace (we use Slack), and freedom to travel.
What we’re looking for
You’re a backend or full-stack web developer capable of working with and building RESTful APIs, architecting databases, and rapidly prototyping software.
What’s important to us
We work with a huge variety of clients on a breadth of projects requiring different tools, libraries, and approaches. We most frequently use Node.js, Python, PHP, MongoDB, MySQL, Gulp, and SCSS. You need not be an expert at everything—we’ve all learned on the job.
We’re looking for someone self-driven who can kick-off a project and pace themselves well. Ideally, you’d be a backend developer who is comfortable working from wireframes, can rapidly prototype features in code, and works autonomously, without supervision.
Where you’ll work
Wherever you’re happiest. While Planetary is based in New York City, you can work from anywhere you’re comfortable and productive.
We’re big on work/life balance — you should be able to enjoy what you do and do what you enjoy. To that end you can work from where you like, have flexible hours, and get generous paid time off.
