We are looking for a highly collaborative Remote Software Development Engineer – Full Stack who is motivated and interested in building applications that enable our users to consume and interactively engage in digital biblical content. While the ideal candidate should be somewhat familiar with the frontend portion of web applications built in a JavaScript environment (e.g., React.js), he or she will be most proficient working in a functional programming backend environment using Scala.

This team will be building a new digital content consumption application that is intended to provide its users with the best possible digital media engagement experience. Therefore, a commitment to collaborative problem solving, sophisticated design, and quality implementation is important.
