What Stark needs
Hey there! We’re looking for a Full-Stack Engineer (Senior) that can use their understanding of web technologies to build out a suite of tools for Stark customers—from Mac and web applications for customers to community tools.

We believe the world is better when everyone has the ability to navigate it. As a team of 18 scattered across 6 countries, the thread that holds us together is our collective eagerness to learn from and teach each other with the wonderful values from our different walks of life. We need someone that can teach us and our customers, and are equally as eager to learn from others on the team as part of a quality-driven organization.
What you'll find yourself doing
