We're looking for a full stack developer to join us full time. While you may have an existing focus on one side—front or back end—it is important to be(come) comfortable in both environments. This position offers a great opportunity to make an impact as a part of a small team solving big problems and is making cybersecurity possible for all of Small Business. The ideal candidate:

-Has a passion for solving problems and is eager to grow, learn, and tackle daily and long-term challenges and goals.

-Is a good communicator who enjoys collaboration and thrives in a development culture that values clean code, accessibility, compatibility, and optimization.

-Maintains excellent knowledge of how modern web applications work, including REST API usage, application security, session management, and development best practices.

-Has an open and pragmatic mind toward technologies: As a startup, we need to use whatever is the best tool to solve a problem, not always the most popular or the most complicated.

-Enjoys participating in team discussions and events, including Defendify’s ongoing charity work and missions within the community.


Every team member is a valuable contributor to our core SaaS product with day-to-day responsibilities covering a variety of development needs including building, maintaining, and supporting the Defendify platform. All are encouraged to contribute strategic ideas and participate in QA/QC, and it is important to be comfortable working in an Agile/SCRUM development environment.

We’re looking for self-starters who dig in and ask questions to understand requirements; make a plan, dive into an existing codebase, and learn where to make changes—or where to start new code. Other devs will help you get up to speed and review your code, but the ideal candidate is comfortable self-directing and owning their own work. No micro-management here!


-Background: Significant full-time development experience (employed or freelance). Specific number of years is not as important as demonstrated contributions.

-Variety: You should have worked on large projects in addition to lots of small feature improvements and bug fixes, comfortable with a model of continuous improvement.

-Ownership: You should have been responsible for the entire lifecycle of code in at least one major project, from scratch to QA to deployment to maintenance.

-Process: You should also be comfortable with the philosophy and implementation of development automation: tests, continuous integration, cloud deployment, and frequent production releases.

-Technology: JavaScript experience is paramount in both Node and browser environments. Closures, destructuring, async/await and other aspects of modern JavaScript should be familiar in your everyday coding experience.


-JavaScript: We use libraries and frameworks as needed, but you need to be able to write and understand plain JS. Both Node and browser experience are required.

-Front End and Internet Stack: You should have experience with HTML5, CSS3, and familiarity with the ecosystem of related technologies, like DOM and SASS. In addition, TCP/IP, DNS, and especially how they relate to HTTP. Vue (or similar framework) experience and knowledge of site builders such as Jekyll/Hugo are helpful.

-Version Control: You will be expected to understand how to use Git(Hub) for source control and deployments.

-Relational Databases: Some relational database experience strongly preferred. Pluses include: Experiences in relational and in-memory databases (MySQL, Postgres, Redis) as well as knowledge in generic SQL.

-Operations: Some experience with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Heroku, or similar services.


Everyone at Defendify is dedicated to your success. Providing time and resources to training you on all aspects of your new role is important to us. We thrive on an open-door policy and transparent management system, encouraging team collaboration. Our employees are self-starters by nature. We value empathy, reliability, working hard, and having fun along the way!


This is a flexible position open to candidates with varying levels of experience and offers long-term growth potential. Compensation is competitive and commensurate with experience. Our benefits package is comprehensive and includes health, dental, and vision coverage, educational reimbursement, a 401(k) program, and more.
