Full Stack Developer (LAMP)

BottleRoom 3 is an early stage start-up that is launching a revolutionary marketing service that’s going to disrupt the retail liquor industry using our app, IoT, big data, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and all the other hot tech startup buzz words.  OK, actually we are using all the above and think we’re going to be huge.

We’re a big data, IoT, customer focused type of company that’s on the launch pad ready to take off.

We’re looking for a LAMP stack rock star who can translate customer needs into beautiful code. Someone that’s ready to join in on the excitement of a start-up and make major contributions throughout the company.

Development is currently focused in two areas:

  1. Web services for our consumer app and various portals – REST services from a LAMP server. But it’s not just developing elegant code, it’s creating solutions, and
  2. Financial transaction processing: in some cases, automating procedures and in other cases augmenting manual procedures with tools to make people more productive. Here too, it’s all about working together to find the right solution.

If you get excited about complex problems, then you are a match for this position.

But we’re in start up mode, so that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

If you’re ready to be in on the start of something big, can produce the results we’re looking for, and can make things happen, contact us at: jvezina@bottleroom3.com.

NOTE: We are pre-revenue and work is for equity.
