We are looking for a full-time Lead Full Stack Developer to help plan, design, and implement our large-scale development projects. You have experience building custom solutions using WordPress and understanding and writing frontend code. If you are a generalist when it comes to writing code and comfortable on any end of a tech stack, then you might be the perfect fit.

We build digital experiences for organizations making the world a better place, clients like the International Rescue Committee, the American Cancer Society, and the Rainforest Alliance. We are a small, flexible, and collaborative team excited about tackling challenging projects.

While this is a full-time developer position, for the right candidate, this could transition into a larger role within the company with the possibility of helping us build a team in your location. We’re interested in creating a development team off-shore and the ideal candidate would have an entrepreneurial drive and excitement around helping grow a Radish Lab office in his/her own country.

Location Remote. Must be in the Americas. We are particularly interested in candidates in Latin America (LATAM).
