Many of our customers/businesses need custom or new features that we don't currently support and require implementation. This job would entail:
  • Speaking with customers to understand the requirements of each project.
  • Providing an estimate of the hours required for each project.
  • Implementing the features that are in the scope of the project.
  • Working with the customers to verify that the new features work as expected.

    We're looking for somebody who is passionate about software and is interested to start at the ground-level with a company so that they can help it grow and share in its success. We hope that you're excited to make a big impact because you'll have plenty of opportunity to do that. If you're ambitious and smart, we're definitely interested. But if on top of that you're the type of person who gets things done, then we're looking for you. We work with a lot of different technologies with languages such as Python, PHP, JavaScript, C++, etc. and frameworks such as Flask, AngularJS, TurboGears, etc. We need somebody who can learn new technologies quickly and is excited to make learning part of their regular routine. We try to never say no at FarApp because we believe we can develop anything (though some things are harder than others). We're looking for people that have the same mindset.

    We're offering a competitive salary with great benefits.

    • BS Degree in Computer Science or related field
    • 5+ years experience in software
    • Strong communication skills (since you'll be speaking directly to customers)
