Full Stack Developer (with front end web development focus) at Budget Referee | Harrisonburg
Posted: November 2018

“This position is programming, rather than graphic design. I am a non-technical founder and we have been working on software for household budgeting.  I have just moved to the Harrisonburg, VA area and am searching for the right local resource.  We have the software @ 85% developed through work over the past 10 months. We have focused on vertical integration and now need the right person who is full stack with a focus on UI.  We are currently in Alpha testing and need your expertise for a long-term relationship through testing, launch and continuous as product development. As a fledgling start-up, we would much prefer to find someone who is potentially open to either sweat-equity or deferred compensation.

To be a close match, this full stack developer would have done a lot of front end web development using html/css, JavaScript and jQuery with Angular, PHP, MySQL and XML.  Helpful if you used the Zurb Foundation responsive front-end framework (https://foundation.zurb.com/) as well as Bootstrap.  You’ll need to be able to write server side code with MVC as well as PDO for the database interface. Able to use Word Press templates and stylize to our preferences. As I am a non-technical founder, it is important that you can be a “fast listener” and add refinements that I am sure to miss. Strong “live data” API experience and able to troubleshoot and consult in all full stack areas.  You’ll be called on to merge front end code to make seamless related pages.  You should be familiar with dealing with conflicts of all types.”
