We are looking for a skilled senior full-stack software engineer and architect to help build a next-generation event services marketplace. The perfect candidate would be user-focused and be able to make product and technical trade-offs today while keeping in mind a long-term, scalable strategy. Enthusiasm and vision as well as empathy and compassion are required to build the product and culture we are striving towards. In addition, the ideal candidate will be proficient in marketplace development, paywall, database design, and web/mobile technologies. Having interests in the food and beverage industry and the event services industry are preferred.

Experience Shindig is a marketplace platform that enables clients to easily book caterers, personal chefs, and other event pros for extraordinary, sustainable events. We help our providers reduce their administrative overhead and increase their brand exposure while earning new client business.

Our vision is to enable people everywhere to host extraordinary events that support local providers and incorporate sustainable practices, fresh food, and minimal waste. We are building a marketplace where providers can showcase their available bookable services and packages, and where consumers and businesses can find the services and products they need to host fantastic events.

The founding team is looking for a Technical Director of Engineering who is passionate about sustainability and is willing and able to roll up their sleeves and help refine the existing MVP and lead us to the next stages of the company growth. This candidate should have experience directly contributing to technical ecosystems. Our 2 go-to-market applications are currently based on WordPress/PHP and Django/Python respectively. We are looking for technical and strategic leadership that will help us become the dominant technology provider for event service providers in the Seattle metro area and future urban geographies within the US.

This position is paid through equity opportunities until seed funding is secured and then a market-competitive salary range while the company gains traction, expands market share, builds brand, and expands to new geographies.

This position is 100% remote.
