  • Python, Elixir/Phoenix
  • JS Frontends: Angular, React
  • Databases: MySQL, Postgres, Mongo, Redis

Wondering if SfG is a good fit for you? We think we have a lot to offer:

  • The chance to work on engaging projects you can feel good about (both client work and our own products)
  • 40 hour work week (for real)
  • Flexible schedule, and the ability to work remotely
  • Open to fully remote employees
  • Unlimited PTO, which you will be encouraged to take
  • 401k and match
  • Healthcare coverage for you and your family
  • Family-friendly policies including fully paid parental leave
  • Education and training budget
  • Competitive salary
  • A bunch of other great work/life perks that don’t fit neatly into a bulleted list
