Senior Full Stack Engineer (Fully Remote)
- Silicon Valley, CA, United States
Squadformers was created because we believe that great work can be done better together. Our team is composed of a bunch of creators, designers, and builders by heart and our mission is to make things on Earth better than they were before.
At the core of Squadformers is the team, or as we like to call it, the Squad. We are friends and colleagues that lift you up when things get tough, challenge you to be a better version of yourself, and respect one another, all while working together on an important mission for the world. Yes. We like to be decent Humans...
We have two types of missions: client missions, and greater good missions. We use the money from the client missions to fund the greater good missions, because those we do for free. Important missions that urgently need our help, like climate change and inequality. And the client missions? Those are important, too. We help Silicon Valley startups like Gabb create safer and less distracting technology for kids. We help Bevy create community with their online platform. And we help Compose build a less distracting online world, with more focus and flow. And many more.
You'll be part of a growing distributed team. Which means you are remote 100% of the time. You’ll be implementing new features, redesign or removing existing ones, and fixing bugs.

We have a Senior Full-Stack Developer opening on one of our squads, to work alongside experienced developers, a designer and a PM to build amazing products for our clients. You’ll be working on implementing new features, redesign or removing existing ones, fixing bugs and generally building delightful products. We’re product & design driven, care about good UI/UX, measuring impact, and code quality. We’re not afraid to take the longer road if it means long term success. We’re not fully TDD but like tests and sometimes have a QA on the squad. We look to you to tell us how to solve problems and be better.
Tech Stacks vary. We often work with Python + Django, Node or Go on the backend, and usually React on the frontend. PostgreSQL, GraphQL, AWS are also common. We welcome applicants who lean more on frontend or backend experience, but some familiarity with both is required. We love good tools and use Linear, Slack, Figma, Notion, Mixpanel, etc.
We do run weekly retrospectives, daily standups and sometimes Friday gaming, but like to keep meetings short and rely on audio calls a lot.
Why you want to come to work for us! We’re looking for 40hr/week at this time Very competitive salary. Due to our scale and setup, this is an independent contractor (1099) position.
