Propeller Senior Platform Developer

SUMMARY DESCRIPTION

Propeller is looking for a talented, full-stack developer for the role of Senior Platform Developer to build our next generation platform and to guide technology innovation for the company.

What is Propeller?

For the last three years, Propeller has been combining the power and reach of influencers (mostly musicians) with once-in-a-lifetime experiences and other incentives to drive engagement on behalf of many of today's leading nonprofits. We offer influencers a better way to connect with their fans and to generate impact for the causes they care about most while simultaneously providing nonprofits a better way to reach new audiences.

Technology is what powers our company. And we're ready to take what we've learned over the last three years, refine the existing platform, and prepare to rebuild it in a way that scales to our ambitions, provides the functionality our customers need and want, and creates a better overall user experience.

If you're looking for the opportunity to use your programming skills at the cutting edge of influencer engagement to help some of the biggest names in music engage young people and drive social good on behalf of the most important causes facing society, then keep reading...this job may be a perfect fit for you.

This is an executive-level position. The technical skills are only part of it. We want someone who has a passion for creating change, the ability to articulate a vision and the expertise to make it a reality.
