Competitive compensation, flexible hours and work locations, 100% paid medical and dental insurance, and more.
If possible include references to a project you’ve written — a Django project, a Node module, a video
game with nifty in-game currency, anything that characterizes the kind of work you like to do.
FareHarbor is in the outdoor activities space for a good reason — many of us absolutely love getting
out there! Whether you love the beach, chase storms in the mountains, ride bikes through the headlands,
or otherwise value time spent enjoying Northern California, you’ll fit right in.
Include a link to your website, a portfolio, your contributions to open-source projects, or anything else that explains who you are as an engineer.
We're not looking to check 87 different boxes for HR; if you are excited about working with us we want to talk to you! References to specific technologies and services are simply some examples of what we're using. We're looking for people that can quickly get familiar with a new codebase, identify its strengths and weaknesses, and focus on moving it forward.
