A Business-Minded Agency and eCommerce Powerhouse

Backend Developer

Laying the groundwork for scalable, sustainable success.

At Gapstow, we realize that a good frontend web design is only as strong as the foundations behind it. That’s why we promise to our clients a website with strong backend infrastructure that meets all of their needs — even the ones of which they aren’t aware exist. Though backend developers handle everything going on “behind the scenes,” at Gapstow, we see you, and we love you.   

Position Responsibilities Include...
… the design, development, and deployment of server-side web applications for eCommerce-focused clientele. 

As a backend developer for Gapstow, you will collaborate closely with our frontend devs and designers to ensure site functionality and improve the overall user experience. This includes troubleshooting, debugging, and writing original, clean code to develop functional eCommerce websites and web applications. Occasionally, you may also need to analyze, address, and propose technical requirements or updates to our account/project managers and clients.    

Preferred Skills:
  • Three to five years experience as a backend web developer in a variety of programming languages
  • Experience or familiarly with backend development languages
  • Thorough understanding of current and forward-thinking eCommerce trends, platforms (Shopify experience preferred), and up-to-date design practices 
  • Advanced knowledge of SEO and mobile-responsive web development strategies
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills
  • Self-starter with the motivation to confidently own responsibilities in a remote setting

What You Get In Return:
  • Comfortable, flexible work environment and schedule
  • Opportunity to work from home
  • Positive, friendly co-workers
  • Continued learning and growth

We can’t wait to have you on our team!
