Phaxio | Chicago | Full-time | REMOTE OK (U.S. only)

A bit about us: Phaxio is a simple, yet powerful, faxing API (you heard that right, faxing). We power small companies from places like YC and Techstars to major banks and Fortune 100 companies.

Who we're looking for: As a full stack developer at Phaxio, you will be working with a variety of technologies on the front and back end. We recently rewrote our API in Rails and just rolled out a whole new look and feel.

On an average day you might find yourself: - Updating chef recipes to deploy a new service

- Working to add a new feature to our Rails web dashboard or the flagship API

- Tweaking our packer or vagrant development setup to optimize dev time for other engineers

- Using Wireshark to diagnose issues with one of our carriers

- Improving fabric scripts we use to automate our infrastructure on AWS

- Answering a technical support ticket that involves a feature you created

- Work on an open source library that helps developers or even non-technical end-users integrate with Phaxio

For interviews: After a brief conversation to make sure that we're all on the same page, we'll send over an interesting issue for you to diagnose and solve. Nobody looking over your shoulder or breathing down your neck :)

If you're interested, send an email to howard at Phaxio.com




Why US only? Is it a timezone issue?


Most companies with remote workers and additional restrictions for their nationality do it because of taxes and other legal stuff. Some times it is financial departments being lazy, other times is because the company wants to offer extra benefits to their employees that are only possible if they live in the same country where the organization was registered.


This isn't true of every position at Phaxio as we do have some team members outside the country. This position however, requires someone who resides in the US.

If you're interested at working with Phaxio, drop me note!
